Features and benefits

Ease of use


  • Unmanaged

provides plug-and-play simplicity

·       Auto-speed negotiation

selects individual port speed automatically, depending on client capabilities; removing the need for manual intervention enables simple plug-and-play operation

·       Comprehensive LED display with per-port indicators

provides an at-a-glance view of the status, activity, speed, and full-duplex operation of the switches

·       Flow control

helps ensure reliable communications during full-duplex operation

·       HPE/IEEE Auto-MDIX

automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables on all RJ-45 ports




  • Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000 Connectivity

supports high-speed Ethernet connections over highly affordable copper Category 5 cabling.

·       10-Gigabit fiber connectivity

Future-proof 10-Gigabit technology allows high-speed fiber connection to servers or other switches, with connection flexibility using optional SFP+ or SFP transceivers.

·       IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE+)

provides up to 30 W per port, which allows support of the latest PoE+-capable devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, and security cameras, as well as any IEEE 802.3af compliant end device; reduces the cost of additional electrical cabling and circuits that would otherwise be necessary in IP phone and WLAN deployments (for PoE model)




  • Energy-efficient Ethernet support

supports new IEEE 802.3az standard; and allows lower power consumption, when operated with IEEE-compliant client devices in 100 Mb/s mode only

·       Half-/full-duplex auto-negotiating capability on every port

doubles the throughput of every port.

·       Jumbo frame support

allows frames up to 9,216 bytes to be switched through the network




  • Fanless design

enables quiet operation for deployment in open spaces

·       Internal power supply

delivers operational convenience and an environment suitable for business operations


Quality of Service (QoS)


  • IEEE 802.1p prioritization




delivers data to devices, based on the priority and type of traffic

·       DiffServ Code Point (DSCP) support

allows real-time traffic prioritization, based on L3 TOS/DSCP parameters
