These switches provide Gigabit Ethernet connectivity from the network backbone all the way to the edge and to individual desktops. With up to 10 times the speed of 100 Mbps networks, these switches reduce transfer times of large data files and boost bandwidth-intensive applications, thereby significantly enhancing overall network performance. Jumbo frame support enables more efficient data transfers with data packets up to 9 K bytes in size. The switches are easy to install and an ideal solution for network migration with their 10/100/1000 Mbps Auto MDI/MDIX ports. Not only are ports triple-speed, all ports can be either connected to a workstation or another switch, without the need for crossover cables. Supporting non-blocking wire-speed throughput, the switches are built to handle the growing performance needs of bandwidth-hungry applications in today's networks.
