Buffalo BS-MP2008 overview

  • 1Description

The BS-MP20 8-Port 10GbE Network Switch from Buffalo is built upon 802.3bz standard, which positions small businesses to maximize current network infrastructure while preparing them for later transition to 10GbE. The 802.3bz standard supports 2.5, 5, and 10GBase-T networks through the same switch using a basic CAT5e cable. To transition to 10GbE networking, this switch is suitable with the TeraStation 5010 line of NAS devices which features up to two native 10GbE ports. Each port on the switch automatically detects and configures the correct connection while full duplex operation provides maximum performance.

The BS-MP20 features a compact design that can sit on a desktop, mounted on a wall, or in a rack. Additionally, the chassis design supports noise reduction. To simplify installation, it includes rubber feet for desktop use and rails for rack-mounting.

8 ports for fast multi-gigabit network speeds
Full duplex operation provides maximum performance
IEEE 802.3az standard (Green Ethernet technology) for reduced power consumption
Automatic energy conservation feature reduces total power consumption
Automatically detects and configures the correct connection for each port, eliminating need to manually configure connections

    Buffalo BS-MP2008 reviews

    BS-MP20 8-Port 10GbE Network Switch is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A switch that delivers the goods, but has some flaws. OK, so I received this about two weeks ago. I can safely say that it has worked flawlessly from networking standpoint. I edit 4K videos, and store my data on a home built file server acting as a glorified NAS. The difference this has made to accessing files, compared to running on the old gigabit links has been SUBSTANTIAL. Even though my old links were comprised of 4 teamed, (or LACP'd, grouped, aggregated if you prefer) gigabit links to each system. However, from experience I can say that� teaming 4 separate 1 gigabit links together only provided a speed bonus under certain conditions, and never anything comparable to 10 gigabits. The marketing on this switch says that it's "Aimed at providing an affordable 10 Gigabit entry for small businesses and home offices". I have to say that this is the cheapest NEW 8 port 10GbE switch I could find. Many of the refurbished ones (say on eBay) have infiniband, and/or a number of other proprietary connectors. So make sure you get a device that works for you. This features nothing but RJ45 sockets for the networking which is the most common Ethernet sockets for the last 15 years (or more). From my experience, you need to be running at least Cat 6 cables to run at 10G speeds, so recycling older cables may not cost effective. This switch still costs a LOT more than the average 8 port gigabit switch, and even most high-performance routers, so give it the cables it needs to make the most of it. The biggest flaw in this unit is it's cooling. If you have to live with this thing nearby, you'll notice (very soon, if not immediately), the sheer noise, even under light (or no) load. Clearly the 1Unit rack chassis has a small height, so there's probably a 40mm (roughly 1.5") fan or two which must run significantly faster than larger models to produce the same airflow. In addition to using (I'm guessing two) small noisy fans, the vents for these fans seem inadequate for the task. With choke points on the airflow, the fans have to spin even faster to compensate. As such I can easily imagine that the fans would be the first thing to wear out on this unit. Honestly, I believe the networking part is great, but this is in NO WAY suited for a home office like mine... especially if you or your loved ones sleep in nearby rooms. If you have a soundproof (or sufficiently distant) place to run this switch, then it's a great unit. If not... I'd suggest finding an alternative, or running your systems without an intermediate 10GbE switch. Buffalo, if you're reading this, can you fix this? I don't care if you have to put this in a 2 unit case, and run a 120mm fan horizontally to vent the heat. Get the noise down, and you'd have 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! Cost effective SUPER fast speed connectivity. Awesome switch. For less than 500.00 you can interconnect 10 gig/5 gig/2.5 gig/1 gig devices on your network. I have used this with high end 10 gig Intel cards, and low end cheap Aquantia 10/5/2.5 Gig cards. Works great with all of them. Even get 10 Gig over short runs on Cat 5E. (around 50 feet). The web interface is a little on the plain side, but at his price I don't care. VLAN tagging works also. Not really loud, but not quite either. It's not a home office switch meant to be located near your computers. I don't believe they market it as that. I have mine installed in my basement back where all my network cables terminate and if your 10 feet away from it, it just sounds like some quiet fan noise in the backgound. No where near as loud as a data center switch.
