Introducing i3 International's new 8 port Power over Ethernet switch. The S81 is a next generation L2 Managed PoE switch offering a full suite of L2 features, additional RJ45/SFP uplink connections, better PoE functionality and usability including advanced L3 features such as Static Route that delivers better cost performance and lower total cost of ownership. This switch is made for megapixel IP Camera installations using high performance Gigabit Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).
The S81 delivers 8 (10M/100M/1G) RJ45/PoE/PoE+ ports plus 2 RJ45 SFP combo ports and one RJ45 console port. It delivers high hardware performance and environment flexibility for businesses of all sizes. All the RJ45 ports support automatic MDI/MDI-X operation, auto-negotiation and IEEE 802.3x auto-negotiation of flow control, so the optimum data rate and transmission can be selected automatically.
The S81 performs a wire-speed, non-blocking switching fabric. This allows wire-speed transport of multiple packets at low latency on all ports simultaneously. The switch also features full-duplex capability on all ports, which effectively doubles the bandwidth of each connection.
This switch uses store-and-forward technology to ensure maximum data integrity. With this technology, the entire packet must be received into a buffer and checked for validity before being forwarded. This prevents errors from being propagated throughout the network.
