The 5-Port 10/100 Mb/s Ethernet Switch (Multi-Mode, 2 km) from Black Box is a palm size Ethernet switch equipped with four RJ-45 and one pair of ST copper connectors. The multi-mode fiber ports support distance of up to 1.2 miles. The 10/100 Mb/s auto-negotiating and auto-sensing copper ports, plus optional 100 Mb/s fiber uplink ports offer migration to Fast Ethernet. Auto MDI/MDI-X on all the copper ports eliminates the need for crossover cables. The non-blocking switch architecture makes this unit suitable for video and other data-intensive applications. Store-and-forward switching technology eliminates error propagation, and wire-speed forwarding makes your network functions faster. Its compact size, with plug and play installation makes network integration easy.
