Was looking for a cheap gigabit switch and found this one, supports jumbo frames too!
may not be a main stream brand name, but edimax have been around for ages, thought it wasa very good price!
The Edimax ES-5500P is an ideal energy saving switch integrated with five 10/100/1000Mbps gigabit ports. It is designed to meet the demands of transferring large files across the network with faster speeds. The switch is capable of detecting the length of an Ethernet cable connected and automatically supply with the right amount of energy. It also reduces its power consumption if ports are idle.
* Supports wire-speed and flow control
* Supports jumbo frame
* Plug and play supporting auto-MDI/MDI-X
* Green Ethernet switch
Supports wire-speed and flow control
This Edimax switch complies with IEEE802.3, IEEE802.3u and IEEE802.3ab standards. The switch is using non-blocking switching architecture, featuring your network with full-wire speed connections. It accommodates with flow control for full duplex mode and back pressure for half-duplex mode which ensures reliable data transfer and helps to prevent data lost. Use ES-5500P to create a gigabit high-speeds network and benefit from its ultimate performance and reliability.
Supports jumbo frame
In addition, the ES-5500P supports jumbo frame which allows you to extend the Ethernet frame size to maximum 9600 bytes to increase data rate. This cost-efficient switch is the best choice for Small office/Home office.
Supports auto MDI/MDI-X
Easy plug and play installation because ES-5500P supports auto-MDI/MDI-X. You can use either straight-through or cross-over Ethernet cable and combine 10, 100 and 1000 Mbps devices into ES-5500P. The switch will automatically detect the right cable and speed for your device.
