This new Linksys rackmount switch delivers non-blocking, wire speed switching for your 10, 100, and 1000 megabit network clients, plus multiple options for connecting to your network backbone. Twenty-four 10/100/1000 ports wire up your workstations, while the two mini GBIC ports allow future expansion to alternate transmission media like optical fiber for your backbone. All ports have automatic MDI/MDI-X crossover detection, so you dont have to worry about the cable type, and polarity detection will even automatically correct wiring errors. Each port independently and automatically negotiates for best speed and whether to run in half- or full-duplex mode. Head-of-line blocking prevention keeps your high-speed clients from bogging down in lower-speed traffic and fast store-and-forward switching prevents damaged packets from being passed on into the network.
From the Manufacturer
Cementing Your Network's Foundation. A strong business network needs a solid foundation. Formerly part of the Linksys Business Series, the Cisco SRW2024 24-Port Gigabit Switch provides that essential core. It supports gigabit networking, offering exceptional performance over 24 separate connections. Because security is a priority on the SRW2024, no attached device receives information before it authenticates with the switch, and access levels can be customized in multiple ways. The SRW2024 prioritizes dataflow with a variety of traffic-shaping mechanisms to help ensure high performance and clarity for heavy-traffic communications like video teleconferencing. The switch's robust management functions are easy to access with a variety of clients, and its internal monitoring software keeps tabs on your network's every operation.
If your business was a building, its network would be the foundation. And Cisco Small Business Managed Switches would be at the core, offering the perfect mix of configurability, speed, and stability to keep your network running smoothly.
