|The 8-Port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Switch provides
non-blocking, wire speed switching for your 10, 100, and 1000 megabit
network clients. Drop this switch in place of your current workgroup hub
or switch, and you can upgrade your high-requirement workstations to
full Gigabit speeds as necessary, while continuing to service other
clients at their current speeds. Or build your network from the ground
up, with appropriate link speeds for each user's requirements. Either
way, it's perfect for graphics, multimedia, and other applications that
have to move large files across the network quickly.
With the 8-Port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Switch, you can connect your
existing 10/100 Ethernet network to a Gigabit server backbone without
any additional equipment. All ports have automatic MDI/MDI-X crossover
detection, so you don't have to worry about the cable type. Each port
independently and automatically negotiates for best speed and whether to
run in half- or full-duplex mode. Address learning and aging is
supported, as well as 802.3x flow control with head-of-line blocking
prevention to keep your high-speed clients from bogging down in
lower-speed traffic. Fast store-and-forward switching prevents damaged
packets from being passed on into the network.
World famous Linksys reliability and the limited lifetime warranty give
you peace of mind and the new ultra-compact case design is sure to fit
into your workgroup environment. Let the Linksys 8-Port 10/100/1000
Gigabit Switch kick your network into high gear.
