TRENDnet just debuted a set of 2.5G unmanaged network switches. The 8-Port Unmanaged 2.5G Switch (TEG-S380) and the 5-Port Unmanaged 2.5G Switch (TEG-S350) are the latest additions to TRENDnet’s Multi-Gigabit Networking Solutions family. Both switches include 2.5GBASE-T RJ-45 ports to achieve up to 2.5Gbps over existing Cat5e (or better) cabling.
These multi-gigabit switches also feature a metal housing, as well as a fan-less design. For installation flexibility, the 2.5G switches are constructed to be mounted on the wall or placed on a desktop. These TRENDnet switches are IEEE 802.3bz compliant; they are also backward compatible with legacy technology hardware. No special configurations are required for these switches to connect and network devices to high-speed 2.5G Ethernet.
The introduction of these 2.5G unmanaged network switches are the latest additions to TRENDnet’s line of high-performance Multi-Gigabit Networking Solutions. TRENDnet recently launched its 2.5G PoE+ Injector (TPE-215GI), one of the first multi-gigabit PoE+ injector available in the market. Additionally, TRENDnet multi-gigabit solutions also currently include PCIe Network Adapters, such as the 2.5GBASE-T PCIe Network Adapter (TEG-25GECTX), and USB-C to Ethernet Adapters, such as the USB-C 3.1 to 2.5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter (TUC-ET2G).
