Small offices can be demanding environments too. The 3Com OfficeConnect Gigabit Switch 5 is designed for small or remote branch offices that need to run bandwidth-intensive video or multimedia applications, and connect to high-speed servers or a high-speed network backbone.
Use it to upgrade an existing hub or switch when you get a high-requirement Gigabit speed workstation and you'll be able to continue servicing your other connections at their current speeds. Plus you'll be ready for the future. The five-port gigabit switch is powerful, as well as reliable and simple to install and operate. Plug-and-play convenience means the switch works right out of the box with no configuration or management required. Each of the five non-blocking, autosensing 10/100/1000 ports automatically adjusts to the speed of network devices communicating at 1000, 100, or 10 Mbps, so the switch can accommodate a range of workgroup applications. Additional features such as a clipping system for easier physical stacking, traffic prioritization, and auto MDI/MDIX on every port make this economical switch a real networking value.
