The devices use IEEE 802.3 Fast Ethernet 10/100BaseTX switching technology that prevents network bottlenecks by eliminating virtually all data collisions and increasing determinism, says the vendor. The products use auto-sensing capabilities to detect network upgrades and modifications, intuitively scaling up or down to meet the demands of the evolving network environment. All 300 Series products automatically configure themselves on the network and auto-negotiate the speed and flow of data. The switches accommodate up to 4,000 MAC switches. Optional N-version switches with N-View Monitoring Software autocast a small Ethernet packet containing a port-by-port status of the switch, including five switch-level data points and 41 data points per port, at regular intervals. Pricing starts at $399.
