For Small Businesses and Home Offices
- Unmanaged switches are easy to set up and ideal for small businesses and home offices, providing simple network expansion with minimal configuration. These switches complement our Routers and Mesh Systems for a seamless networking experience.
For Growing Networks and Workgroups
- Smart switches, which offer a middle ground with some management features, are suitable for networks that may require scalability and some degree of network management. They pair effectively with our Network Storage Solutions for efficient workgroup access.
Essential Features to Consider
Port Count and Types
Choose a switch with enough ports to accommodate all your networked devices, and consider future expansion. Gigabit Ethernet ports are recommended for faster data transfer speeds.
Power over Ethernet (PoE)
For devices like IP cameras and Wi-Fi access points, PoE-enabled switches can provide both power and data over a single cable, simplifying installation and reducing cabling needs.
Managed and smart switches offer features like VLAN support, traffic prioritization (QoS), and network monitoring, useful for more complex networks.
