16-port 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet ProSwitch

Page 9


The NetComm16-port 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet ProSwitch can be used to split parts of the
network into different collision domains, making it possible to expand your Fast Ethernet
network beyond the 205-meter network diameter limit for 100BASE-TX networks. Switches
supporting both traditional 10Mbps Ethernet and 100Mbps Fast Ethernet are also ideal for
bridging between the existing 10Mbps networks and the new 100Mbps networks.

Desktop Switching

The 16-Port ProSwitch can be used as a desktop switch to build a small network that enables
users to have 100 Mbps access to a file server.

Note: If a full-duplex adapter card is installed in the server or PC, a 200 Mbps

connection is possible on the port where the server or PC is connected.
