Fast Ethernet Switches

An Ethernet switch provides an easy method to expand your network. Our 10/100M fast Ethernet switches provide high-performance with a cost effective price. With all ports capable of 10M and 100M auto-negotiation, each DTE is fully connected at high-speeds. 10/100M fast Ethernet switches from Primus Cable are the best way to ensure a reliable 100Base-T connection. Below you will find both managed and unmanaged fast Ethernet switches available 5, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 48 port configurations.

There are two general styles of fast Ethernet switches, managed and unmanaged Ethernet switches. Unmanaged Ethernet switches are plug and play, and are simple to set up. This type of fast Ethernet switch is ideal for small companies with lesser networking requirements, needing less maintenance.

The Unmanaged Fast Ethernet Desktop Switch, 8 Port is made for small home office applications. All eight ports support auto MDI/MDIX, so you don’t need to worry about cable type. With energy efficient technology, this unmanaged fast Ethernet switch can save up to 60% of power consumption. If you’re looking for a hassle free, affordable option, this is unmanaged fast Ethernet switch is just the solution.

Managed Ethernet switches are slightly more expensive, but for companies that are looking to grow, fully managed switches offer greater configuration capabilities, advanced controls, and features that are more sophisticated. For much larger networking requirements, the L2 Managed Fast Ethernet Switch, 24 Port + 2 Gigabit Ports + 2 SFP Ports integrates basic layer 2 management features with 24 10/100Mbps ports. This Ethernet switch includes advanced features such as 802.1x port authentication, Storm Control, Port Security, and QoS (Quality of Service.)

Advantages of Ethernet Switches

  • Ethernet switches create separate collision domains per switch port. Thus, simultaneous transfers can occur without interference.
  • They reduce the number of broadcast domains.
  • Ethernet switches support VLAN’s (which help in logical segmentation of ports).
  • They are intelligent devices that can use CAM table and MAC mapping.
  • Ethernet switches do not require heavy CPU usage.
