Pakedge Device & Software’s new S28fe and S20fe are 28-port and 16-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switches, respectively, with four fiber ports with simultaneous gigabit Ethernet and fiber optic port connectivity.
Aimed at AV integration applications, both models feature a commercial design that accommodates Pakedge’s new 1U brush plate and 2U/3U cover plate. In addition, these switches incorporate Pakedge’s new black “stealth” data ports over standard silver ones everyone else offers for a more professional finish.
The S28fe and S20fe are unmanaged plug-and-play switches, providing easy and quick installations to dealers. Each data port offers speeds of 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps, depending on the quality of connected devices. In additon, the S28fe and S20fe’s store-and-forward architecture filters errors and forwards data packets without any blockage. This flow control ensures that correct data is transmitted and backpressure flow control mechanisms work for both full and half-duplex modes. The S28fe and S20fe support the NWay auto-negotiation protocol that automatically detects network speed (10/100/1000 Mbps) and full/half duplex modes. In addition, Auto-MDI/MDI-X functionality eliminates the need for crossover cables (in larger installations, each port can connect to a larger switch or hub with no crossover cable). Blue LED lights on the front panel provide real-time diagnostics.
