Managed Network Switches
Fully managed network switches give you total control over all devices connected to the switch. Managed switches offer a varying array of interfaces to control various aspects of the switch, from adjusting port speed to increase network efficiency to creating and modifying VLANs, all available for next day delivery from Servers Plus.
For assistance with selecting the best switch for your network please call our Networking Team on 03333 11 00 66.
Network switches are used to connect wired devices together in your business or home to create or expand a network. By far the most common switches available today have RJ45 connections for Ethernet connections, and some feature one or more SFP or SFP+ sockets in order to join multiple switches together without creating a bottleneck. At ServersPlus.com we specialise in products from Aruba, Cisco, HPE, Ubiquiti, Dell, Juniper, Netgear and ZyXEL.
Switches typically come in three types: - Fully Managed switches are ideal for large networks as they have a wide range of management features to help you configure and maintain the network. Smart Managed switches are generally cheaper than fully managed switches, they can be configured by a simple web interface but often lack some of the higher-end management options available with fully-managed switches. Unmanaged switches are simple ?plug-and-play? with no management or configuration options, and are the cheapest switch option as a result.
PoE Switches have the ability to send power and data down some or all of their Ethernet ports, in order to power the networked devices.
.SFP and SFP+ (Small Form-factor Pluggable) is a standard socket that supports a range of transceivers and direct-attach cables for connecting devices at high speeds, often with fibre-optic cables at speeds in excess of 10GbE.
