Compact, Streamlined, Affordable Gigabit Switching for Small Offices with Big Demands
The Gigabit Switch 5 is designed for small offices and remote branch offices requiring high network performance to exchange large data files and images, and access real-time information or connect to high-speed servers or a high-speed network backbone.
Part of the 3Com Green initiative, this switch with its compact streamlined enclosure has one of the smallest form factors in the industry, and with its low power consumption, minimizes the carbon footprint. The 3Com logo illuminates on power up, and blue LEDs indicate port connections.
Featuring autosensing and auto MDI/MDIX on all ports, the 3Com Gigabit Switch 5 automatically finds the fastest connection speed; the autosensing 10/100/1000 ports automatically adjust to the speed of network devices communicating at 1000, 100, or 10 Mbps, so the switch can accommodate a range of workgroup applications. All that is needed is to connect the power and Ethernet cables.
There is no software to configure. Easy to set up these switches feature a fan-less design which provides silent operation. With 5 ports you can expand your network by adding more computers or devices with speeds up to 2000 Mbps per port in full-duplex mode.
The 3Com Gigabit Switch 5 offers high-speed, high-quality, reliable, affordable networking with a style that will accommodate any office environment and is backed by an outstanding 2-year warranty.
For those requiring a larger port count an 8 port version of this switch is available with similar features, the 3Com Gigabit Switch 8.
