The Managed Switch is ideally positioned at the core of the network to form a multi-level network infrastructure with centralized access to high-speed servers. Designed to provide a high level of performance and reliability, it provides important features such as advanced QoS policy, high-speed stacking, redundant power supply, MAC address table control by port or optimal security (authentication, or failure alert).
Smart Manageable :
The smart switch appears to be the right compromise between security, simple administration and reasonable cost. It offers complete control to achieve a reliable and efficient network. Access to the smart switch's web server allows the most common functionalities such as VLAN creation, loop detection, link aggregation, flow control or priority management to be configured. The smart switch also improves network performance thanks to fault analysis and search tools, to retrieve statistics or a packet counter in transmission and reception. The smart switch Gigamédia and an ideal switch for video protection.
Unmanageable switch :
The unmanageable switch creates a network for a small group of people. It is a "Plug and Play" solution requiring no specific skills. This type of switch does not allow this network to be configured (e.g. traffic flow control, bandwidth control, Vlan creation, etc.). It will not be suitable for a larger group of people. This product remains however the simplest and easiest solution to implement to connect between them computer, IP camera, Wi-Fi access points or other Ethernet devices.
Industrial switches as their name suggests are intended for an industrial environment that requires great reliability. Difficult environments with noise and vibration require quality equipment. This type of switch has a "Rail Din" hook.
19'' Rackable :
The 19'' rack-mountable switch is delivered with a bracket set allowing its integration in a 19'' rack or box.
This type of switch is the ideal entry-level solution for small networks, it can be easily installed in offices.
10'' Rackable : With its 10'' format, the "10'' rack-mount switch" is ideal for implementing the 123 CONNECT solution.
POE (Power Over Ethernet) allows the camera to be powered via computer network cabling (without additional power supply). A POE switch is capable of delivering up to 15.4W per port while the POE+ switch can deliver up to 30W per port. The number of ports of a switch that can deliver POE or POE+ depends on its POE budget.
delivering up to 15.4W per port while the POE+ switch can deliver up to 30W per port. The number of ports of a switch that can deliver POE or POE+ depends on its POE budget.
Number of copper ports
Gigamedia switches can contain from 4 to 24 ports. The number of ports on your switch depends on the number of devices connected. However, you can also combine the use of your switches and use them connected to each other.
Number of free SFP slots
Gigamedia switches can contain 1 or 2 fiber ports. The fiber port is a location for an SFP* module. This SFP module is used for long distance fibre optic links, well beyond a copper link.
SFP Module: Many Gigamedia switches have an SFP module slot. The SFP module allows the connection of an optical fibre
Flow rate Copper
The speed required by your switch will depend on the type of your computer network. The current data rates are as follows: - Fast Ethernet : Fast ethernet allows data transfers up to 100 Mbits/s. - Gigabit Ethernet : Gigabit allows a transfer rate of 1000 Megabits per second.
Fiber flow rate
Link channel length as a function of multimode fibre throughput
SC connector fiber port
Switches equipped with SFP SC connector module, have the possibility to accommodate an optical fiber with SC connector.
