Flexible deployment with multiple 10G SFP+ fiber and Gigabit ports
The QSW-M2108R-2C provides two 10GbE SFP+/RJ45 combo ports and eight 2.5 Gigabit ports for connecting various devices and enabling hybrid high-speed networks. With SFP+ interfaces, Direct Attach Copper (DAC) cables can be used for connecting directly to SFP+ devices. You can also use RJ45 ports to connect 10GBASE-T/NBASE-T™ devices through RJ45 Category 6 (or better) cabling. The switching capacity of the QSW-M2108-2C is 80Gbps, guaranteeing the full potential of each port.
Note: 10GbE SFP+ ports are backward compatible with 1GbE SFP; the RJ45 (copper) combo port supports up to five speeds (10G / 5G / 2.5G / 1G / 100M).
Flexible deployment combo ports and 10GbE / NBASE-T
The QSW-M2108R-2C is compatible with 10GbE and NBASE-T technologies to support five speeds (10G / 5G / 2.5G / 1G / 100M) using existing Cat 5e and Cat 6a cables. The SFP+/RJ45 (copper) combo ports provide higher transmission speeds with existing cables. Depending on cable type and lengths, different speeds can be achieved for faster, more efficient data transfer.
Note: If the distance between the switch and the device is less than 45 meters (148 feet), a Cat 6 cable can be used to achieve up to 10Gb/s.
