13 – 18 Port Ethernet Switches
Switches that feature port counts between 13 – 18 ports meet the networking needs of small-medium businesses or serve as workgroup switches for large enterprises. Higher-speed devices in this category can serve network intensive workgroups working on graphics, CAD/CAM or multimedia projects. These switches have a modest footprint and can be used in desktop, wall mount or rack mount applications. Backplanes on these switches feature a backplane capacity to support non-blocking operation. Switches in this category can be unmanaged or can feature SNMP management for end-to-end network visibility. With hardened Ethernet features and certifications, these switches can also be used to connect industrial equipment in non-enterprise applications.
Ethernet switches in the 13 – 18 port count range feature high-performance Layer 2 networking for 10/100/1000 Ethernet. Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) switch models are also available for providing power and connectivity to IP phones, IP cameras and wireless access points. Backbone connectivity is a requirement and switches in this category typically support between 2 – 4 fiber-optic backbone connections.
Transition Networks’ 13 – 18 Port Ethernet Switches are the ideal solution for small-medium businesses because of their high-performance flexibility through the higher-density port count. Also, these switches are a powerful tool with advanced management and PoE to make management and connectivity of your network easy.
