QNAP (QNAP), an industry-leading innovator of computing, network and storage solutions, has just launched an eight-port 2.5GbE unmanaged switch suitable for home and small office (SOHO) environments.It is the QSW-1108-8T that supports plug-and-play settings, automatic loop and congestion detection, and auto-negotiation functions. It is a cost-effective solution for upgrading high-speed networks for homes and businesses.
QNAP product manager Ricky Ho said: “One of the main factors hindering people from upgrading Ethernet infrastructure is the cost and availability of switches/adapters.”
With the launch of the QSE-1108-8T switch, QNAP has fulfilled its firm commitment to the 2.5GbE ecosystem. This economical product allows home and business customers to easily upgrade their Ethernet networks to a whole new level.
In terms of specifications, QSW-1108-8T has eight 2.5GbE / NBASE-T RJ45 ports and supports 2.5G / 1G / 100M transmission rate.
Thanks to the auto-negotiation function, customers can provide transmission rate and performance optimization for each networked device without complicated settings.
At the same time, the built-in management mechanism can ensure the smooth transmission of network data packets. The network loop detection function can automatically lock the port that caused the broadcast storm to ensure that the network environment quickly resumes normal operation.
Finally, although QSW-1108-8T usesfanDesign, but the unique air duct design makes it possible to take into account the heat dissipation efficiency and almost silent operation.
