Affordable High-Performance Switching for Small Offices with Big Demands
Small offices can be demanding environments too. The OfficeConnect® Gigabit Switch 16 is designed for small or remote branch offices that need to run bandwidth-intensive video or multimedia applications, and connect to high-speed servers or a high-speed network backbone.
The Gigabit Switch 16 is ideal for upgrading hubs or switches when adding a gigabit workstation or laptop to an existing network: the switch provides gigabit speeds to these newer devices, while servicing existing connections at their current speeds.
As part of the 3Com Green initiative, this switch uses the latest silicon technology; its advanced cable length detection feature also helps reduce power consumption. This OfficeConnect switch also has a minimized carbon footprint, due to it having one of the smallest form factors in the industry.
This 16-port gigabit switch is powerful, reliable and simple to install and operate. Plug-and-play convenience means the switch works right out of the box with no configuration or management required. Each of the 16 non-blocking, autosensing 10/100/1000 ports automatically adjusts to the speed of network devices.
IEEE 802.1p traffic prioritization and auto MDI/MDIX on every port make this an economical switch with real networking value. And its backed by a three year hardware warranty, with next business day advanced hardware replacement.
16 non-blocking, autosensing 10/100/1000 ports can be used as ultra high-speed links to servers or power users, or to connect the rest of the network through a central high-speed switch for bandwidth-intensive operations|
