Two Flexible Combination Gigabit Ports
Your choice – just connect to the RJ45 for a 10/100/1000 Mbps auto-detecting copper link or plug in a fiber transceiver for a 100 or 1000Mbps
noise-immune fiber link. These advanced ports give you the flexibility you need and make your job easier!
Real-Time Secure Performance
Real-Time Ring™ or Rapid Spanning Tree (RSTP) for fast redundant ring or mesh networks
SNMPv1 and v2 network management
SNMPv3 authentication and encryption for security
SNMP notifications (traps) for report on event
Priority Queuing (QoS/CoS) for real-time operation
IGMP for Multicast filtering (snooping and querying)
VLAN for convenient traffic segregation
Broadcast and multicast storm protection
RMON and port mirroring for advanced diagnostics
Security with HTTPS, SSL, SSH, SNMPv3 and more
Easy configuration via Web, Telnet or CLI

Ethernet Performance
18 Ethernet ports including 2 Gigabit
Managed, store and forward, wire-speed
All IEEE 802.3 Ethernet protocols supported
RJ45 ports 1 - 16 (shielded) 10/100BaseTX
RJ45 ports 17 - 18 (shielded) 10/100/1000BaseTX
RJ45 port speed auto-negotiation
RJ45 MDI/MDIX auto-crossover
