Network Speeds

Ethernet network speeds have evolved significantly over time and typically range from Ethernet (802.11) at 10 Mbps, Fast Ethernet (IEEE 802.3u) at 100 Mbps, Gigabit Ethernet (IEEE 802.3-2008) at 1000 Mbps and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (IEEE 802.3a) at 10 Gbps. But many other Ethernet speeds are available for specialized applications. These include 2.5 Gbps, 5 Gbps, 25 Gbps, 40 Gbps, 50 Gbps and 100 Gbps speeds.

These switch speeds are designed to allow tiered network building for any-to-any rate connectivity. Access switches might support 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet speeds for connecting to end users. This traffic is aggregated into distribution switches over faster connections, typically 10 Gbps. The final aggregation is to a core switch which utilizes 10 Gbps connections. Other speeds are for specialized access applications such as using 2.5Gbps connections for high-performance wireless access points, or in the data center where server links can utilize 10/25/40 Gbps connections.

Transition Networks supports all of these different networking speeds to provide the most flexibility to all of our customers. Our switches are available in enterprise grades or hardened temperature grades as well as managed or unmanaged so that you can get the network switch that will work best for your needs. Lastly, our switches are available with Power-over-Ethernet to provide power and connectivity to your network.

I have been specifically using Transition Networks’ products on my engineering products for over 10 years. I have always been pleased with their products, their support, and their willingness to listen to requests for new product development.
