Business Series Smart Gigabit Ethernet Switches deliver cost-effective
switching solutions that are ideal for small businesses or workgroups within
larger organizations. These high-speed switches offer entry-level management
without the cost and complexity of a full Layer 2 managed switch.
The SLM2005 switch is ideal for conference
rooms, labs, shipping/receiving departments or in marketing, design or
audio/visual workgroups. The five 10/100/1000 Mbps (Gigabit Ethernet) ports
enable companies to link to other Gigabit devices on the network (servers,
workstations and network storage) to quickly move bandwidth-intensive files
while still supporting 10/100 Mbps clients.
The SLM2005 supports the IEEE802.3af
standard for Power over Ethernet (PoE) for obtaining its power over a
designated PD port or from an external AC power adapter. This gives
companies the option to install the switch in places where a power outlet
may not be present, such as in ceilings and in walls.
The SLM2005 is able to secure the network
through IEEE 802.1Q VLANs and IEEE 802.1X port authentication. For
environments where IP multicast applications are used, the switch is capable
of limiting the traffic to only the ports that have requested that traffic
with support of IGMP Snooping. Additional QoS capabilities like IEEE 802.1p,
DSCP, and 4 hardware queues make it possible to maintain good quality for
real-time applications like voice and video.
The SLM2005 offers an easy-to-use browser
interface for the management and configuration of the features, making it
ideal for small businesses without an IT staff or that have minimal
