24-Port 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet Switch


  • Overview
  • Power-Saving, High Performance Ethernet Networking
    In line with the energy-saving trend worldwide, PLANET delivers the new generation Green Networking Switch- FNSW-2401. The FNSW-2401 is a 24-port 10/100Base-TX Fast Ethernet Switch upgraded from earlier version and brings both benefits of energy saving and high performance. It is specially designed for SOHO, SMB and Workgroup users. The FNSW-2401 uses new engine that provides power saving up to 12% less energy but maintains high performance efficiently. 

    Energy Saving
    The FNSW-2401 incorporates advanced Green Networking technologies:
    • Intelligent scales power based on cable length

    The intelligent scales power is an intelligent algorithm that actively determines the appropriate power level based on cable length. When connecting to the FNSW-2401 with Ethernet cable longer than 10m, a device can obtain maximum power saving because the FNSW-2401 would automatically detect the Ethernet cable length and reduce power usage. The connected device can substantially reduce overall power consumption, which makes a significant contribution to energy saving.

    High Performance
    The high performance throughput (filtering/forwarding rate: 14,880 packets per second in 10Mbps, 148,800pps in 100Mbps) and dynamic shared memory buffer help the FNSW-2401 boost bandwidth, eliminate unnecessary traffic, and relieve congestion on your critical server path. The FNSW-2401 is the ideal choice to alleviate bottlenecks in client / server and peer-to-peer environments in a cost effective way.

    Plug and Play
    The FNSW-2401provides users with high speed network connections. With its auto-negotiation capability, all the RJ-45/STP ports of the FNSW-2401 can be configured to speeds of 10/20Mbps or 100/200Mbps automatically. What’s more the MDI/ MDIX auto-detection is for easy, plug and play connection, regardless of the cabling type, straight through or crossover.

  • Applications
  • Backbone Switch
    With up to 4.8Gbps switching fabric, the FNSW-2401 can provide high bandwidth connectivity to Fast Ethernet network backbone or as the backbone of your workgroup.

    Department Switch
    Uplink directly by any straight / crossover cable to the backbone switch, the FNSW-2401 provides the connectivity to back plane yet segment the network traffic of the department to your backbone.
