The ComWorx™ CWGE2FE8MSPOE Managed Ethernet Switch provides eight ports of 10/100 BASE-TX PoE and two ports of 10/100/1000TX or 100/1000FX transmission. These units are available for use with either conventional CAT-5e copper or optical transmission media. The eight electrical ports support the 10/100 Mbps Ethernet IEEE 802.3 protocol, and auto-negotiating and auto-MDI/ MDIX features are provided for simplicity and ease of installation. All eight ports support IEEE.802.3af based POE (Max total PoE budget is 77W). Two ports are 10/100/1000 configurable for copper or fiber media for use with multimode or single mode optical fiber, selected by optional SFP modules. These network managed layer 2 switches are optically (100/1000 BASE-FX) and electrically compatible with any IEEE 802.3 compliant Ethernet devices. Plug-and-play design ensures ease of installation, and no electrical or optical adjustments are ever required. The CWGE2FE8MSPOE incorporates LED indicators for monitoring the operating status of the managed switch and network. One switch, or two switches positioned side-by-side, can be mounted within any standard 19-inch equipment rack using the ComNet RMB Rack Mount Bracket Adaptor Kit (sold separately).
