The 5-Port Palm-Sized Ethernet Switch (Multi-Mode, 2-km) from Black Box is equipped with four RJ-45 connectors and a pair of SC copper connectors. You can extend the distance between two 10/100 Mb/s switched copper network segments up to 1.2 miles over fiber. It enables you to put a full wire-speed switch right into a network. The switch provides true Layer 2 non-blocking switch architecture and a store-and-forward switching engine. With Layer 2 switching, you get the speed to handle lots of network data. The store-and-forward engine checks the integrity of each data packet and ensures accurate throughput. With an auto-sensing power supply that adapts to worldwide voltages, its extensive LEDs provide port status. All RJ-45 ports operate at 10/100 Mb/s in half or full-duplex mode.

This compact copper plus fiber 5-port switch is suitable for adding small workgroups to your network. The single fiber port serves as an uplink to your network. Its four 10/100 auto-sensing copper ports feature auto MDI/MDI-X, making it easy to connect workstations without hassles. The switch supports 2048 MAC addresses. You can mount it on any horizontal or flat surface.
