The Intellinet 5-Port Fast Ethernet Office Switch is perfect for the small and medium-size business looking for a durable switch that is reliable and easy to install. The metal case is more durable than a plastic enclosure, and is very appropriate for locations with potentially harsh environments, such as a warehouse, factory or wiring closet.
More often than not, a network switch does not utilize all its ports at all times. Normally, when a computer, notebook, network printer or other network device is powered down, the switch continues to consume the same amount of power as if it were active. Now, thanks to the new energy efficient IEEE 802.3az technology, the Intellinet 10/100 Mbps switch detects link status to all connected devices and reduces the power usage of ports not in use. In addition, the Intellinet switch can adjust the level of power output based on the length of the network cable connected to a particular port. With the Intellinet Network Solutions Fast Ethernet Office Switch you will enjoy maximum network performance, but when things slow down it automatically scales back power usage to conserving energy and save money.
