The non-administrative network switches are virtually the first standard configuration for small networks. SMC offers models with up to 24 ports, which are suitable for offices and similar environments. However, you do not have to do without the performance, as switches are also offered in this area, which have, for example, integrated functions or connections for SFP. The smaller models with 5 to 8 ports, however, are visually designed differently and can therefore be mounted at the desk, if many network devices must be operated, but only one connection is a ilable.
In this segment, SMC has established the TigerSwitch product line, which stands for high-performance switches and management options. Included are two models, so you can dec depending on the network size for the right switch. Whether you choose the TigerSwitch with 26 or 50 ports, in any case, four Gigabit combo ports and other high-performance features are integrated. The latter includes, for example, IP clustering and MultiLink with . Overall, these switches are therefore particularly suitable for the small business sector, whereby e.g. small busine s are addre d.
Of course, SMC also makes other accessories for a modern and efficient network. This also allows existing environments to be expanded and equipped with new functions. For example, use the injectors to power cameras, s, and other devices through the network port, even if the switch does not actually support it. With the help of in particular the wiring can be simplified, since only network cables must be laid.
The SMC selection tool is less of an in-house product, as it simply helps to find the right network solution for your needs. So just select the size of the network, the required features of the network device and the desired data transfer rate, and get the right recommendation from SMC directly.
