CHICAGO –June 22, 2004 – Power up a small network to Gigabit speeds with U.S. Robotics’ 24-Port and 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switches and 32-bit PCI NIC, announced today at SuperComm 2004 (Booth # 13547 & 13548). Ideal for graphics, multimedia, audio and other bandwidth intensive applications, the new switches are capable of transferring extremely large files across a network at gigabit speeds.
“U.S. Robotics new gigabit switches provide an instant boost of speed and capacity for any office network,” said Frank Sugino, strategic development manager, U.S. Robotics. “These new products represent our ongoing efforts to expand our networking solutions for small and medium-sized businesses. Our extensive line of affordable, business-class devices and accessories now includes gigabit switches, VPN security firewalls and wireless networking gear that serve as the perfect foundation for this growing customer base.”
The new gigabit switches provide 10/100/1000 Mbps-switching ports. Each port is capable of sensing the line speed and negotiating the operation mode with the link partner automatically. Simple to set up and use, all ports automatically sense half- or full-duplex connections for high-speed server or switch-to-switch configurations for easy integration into your existing 10/100 Ethernet network. Also, all ports feature integrated LEDs for effortless network monitoring. Moreover, the 24-port switch features a sturdy, metal case design, integrated fan and rack-mount hardware, for optimal placement in a 19-inch rack.
New 24-Port and 8-Port Gigabit Switches and 32-bit NIC will be available by U.S. Robotics in Q3 2004 from select e-tailers, retailers and all major distributors. [MSRP $399, $129 and $24.95, respectively.]
