IEEE 802.3az ENERGY-EFFICIENT ETHERNET SUPPORT
When two 802.3az-compliant switches are connected, up to 49%* of power consumption can be saved.
SUPPORT FOR QUALITY OF SERVICE
When the switches receive a frame tagged with an 802.1p priority tag, it is placed in the appropriate priority queue.
Priority queuing is useful in environments where timesensitive data, such as voice and video, are streamed across
AUTO MDI/MDI-X ON EACH PORT
Support for Auto-MDIX means that no crossover cables are required. Straight-through cables can be used for all connections.
METAL CHASSIS FAN-LESS DESIGN
The compact, rack mountable metal chassis is ideal for desktop or rack mounting. In addition, the lack of fans provides silent operation.
* According to an IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet measurement test conducted by an independent testing company, the SMCFS1601 and SMCFS2401 save up to 49% when each is compared to a non-Green Ethernet switch.
The EZ Switch 10/100 SMCFS1601 is unmanaged,rack-mountable 16-port Fast Ethernet switches for workgroup and small office environments. All 10BASE-T/ 100BASE-TX ports deliver dedicated 10/100Mbps links to each attached LAN segment – all with conventional cabling and adapters. Auto-negotiation is used to select the optimal communication mode for each connection, auto-sensing selects the optimal transmission speed. With store-and-forward switching and flow control, maximum data integrity is always maintained, even under heavy loading. Environmentally friendly, the switches consume less power than non-Green Ethernet switches without reducing network performance. Easy installation and reliability make these plug-and-play switches an ideal choice for smooth Fast Ethernet integration in workgroup and small office network environments.
