The Tenda Fast Ethernet Switch Desk Top S8 8-Port 10/100 for desktop installation provides eight 10/100M ports for easy expansion of your network for connecting printers, scanners, storage, and backup devices to any network to transfer files, share storage, or create a multiplayer gaming environment. Just plug in your Ethernet cables, connect a power cord, and you are good to go. The switch is a Plug-and-Play unmanaged device that requires no configuration or software. Once you connect the hardware, the switch starts operating. With a fan-less design, it operates silently, helping maintain a peaceful atmosphere in your busy office. This compact switch is housed in a sturdy plastic case for years of dependable use.
The switch adopts the store-and-forwarding forwarding mode and auto-learns/-updates MAC addresses to boost data transmit and switching capacity. Each port on the switch can automatically figure out if the link needs a straight-through or cross-over connection, and make the right choice, eliminating the need for toggle switches or special crossover cables. Full duplex flow control and half duplex backpressure flow control help prevent frame drops over congested network.
