8-Port 10/100Mbps Desktop Fast Ethernet Switch


  • Overview
  • High-speed 10/100Mbps Workgroup Switch
    PLANET Fast Ethernet Switch SW-804 provides business and home users with a cost-effective integrated system of small-office / home-office networking. It is with compact-sized plastic case design and just right for the network of 10 to 50 users.

    Stable Fast Ethernet Switch Performance
    The SW-804 also supports Store-and-Forward forwarding scheme to ensure low latency and high data integrity. The high performance throughput (filtering / forwarding rate: 14,880 packets per second in 10Mbps, and 148,800 packets per second in 100Mbps) and 448K bit packet buffer help the SW-804 to boost bandwidth, eliminate unnecessary traffic, and relieve congestion on your critical server path. With an intelligent address recognition algorithm, the SW-804 could recognize up to a 1K different MAC address and provide 1.6Gbps switching capacity, which makes the SW-804 offer wire-speed packets transfer performance without risk of packet loss.

    Flexible Desktop Size Design
    The SW-804 is the fancy-shaped plastic model to fit into space-limited environment. With concepts of “Easy to install and use“, “Compact sized design“, and “Simple troubleshooting“, the SW-804 provides cost-conscious business and home users with the foundation from an integrated system of small-office / home-office networking.

    Plug & Play and Easy Installation
    All RJ-45 copper interfaces in the SW-804 support 10/100Mbps auto-negotiation for optimal speed detection through RJ-45 Category 5/5e cables. Supporting standard for auto-MDI/MDI-X can detect the type of connection to any Ethernet device without requiring special straight or crossover cables. The Flow Control function allows the SW-804 to support routers and servers for direct connection to this switch with fast and reliable data transfer.
  • Applications
  • Ideal Switch for Home / SOHO Network
    With eight 10/100Mbps ports, the SW-804 provides a cost-effective and high-performance solution for Home and SOHO network applications. To segment the network and ease the network traffic, the SW-804 is perfect for SOHO switched networks as the friendly network backbone. In addition, the network status can be monitored at a glance by the SW-804 providing array LED indicators.
