Vertical-Mount Managed Fiber Switch Chassis, 125 VDC  

When your network isn't typical, you need more than a typical switch.


3 YEAR DoubleDiamond™ Warranty (Standard)

Product Highlights

  • More than 20 modular port options enable almost unlimited configuration flexibility.
  • Space-saving vertical wallmount.
  • Outfit the switch with copper-only, fiber-only, or mixed-media modules.

  • Further Details

  • Supports up to a total of 16 ports.
  • RJ-45 ports feature Auto MDI/MDI-X.
  • Fiber modules have ranges from 2 to 70 kilometers (1.2 to 43.5 mi.)!
  • GBIC Transceiver Modules uplink to Gigabit Ethernet.
  • Ideal for use in industrial settings.
  • Robust management features.

  • You're not the type for cookie-cutter solutions. When given choices of only A, B, or C, you want D through Z just to explore all your networking options.

    At Black Box, we know how you feel— and we've done something about it. Our Vertical-Mount Managed Fiber Switch is the switch you've always wanted, a variety of 20 modular port options that enable almost unlimited configuration flexibility.

    Plus, the switch withstands an extraordinary temperature range and is engineered to mount vertically against the wall, making it ideal for industrial environments.

    The Vertical-Mount Managed Fiber Switch is a great fit in transportation and traffic control systems, utilities, and factory environments, as well as video surveillance systems with segments requiring Gigabit backbone connections.

    Unleash your inner engineer.
    The Vertical-Mount Managed Fiber Switch is available in an autosensing AC version and three DC-powered versions. Each chassis features an A slot and a B slot that can be outfitted with Multiport Media Modules, Gigabit Slot Modules, or User-Selectable GBIC Transceiver Modules—all this enables you to customize the switch to your network's specifications.

    Multiport Media Modules come in three varieties: Copper Only, Fiber Only, and Mixed Media. You can connect Copper Only and Mixed Media modules with RJ-45 ports to Ethernet or Fast Ethernet.

    Fiber Only modules feature two, four, six, or eight 100BASE-FX or 10BASE-FL fiber ports—and some even handle both fiber standards!

    Mixed Media modules combine four or six RJ-45 ports with two or four fiber ports.

    You can also populate the switch's A or B slot with Gigabit Slot Modules. Start with a Slot Module that provides a slot for your GBIC Transceiver Module to uplink to Gigabit Ethernet.

    Although the Vertical-Mount Managed Fiber Switch has a near-infinite amount of configuration options, the total number of ports added to the A and B slots cannot exceed 16.

    Give this switch a hard hat!
    The Vertical-Mount Managed Fiber Switch operates at environmental extremes, has an optional redundant DC power supply, and provides security—plus it features a sleek, heavy-duty metal enclosure.

    It performs and helps you take charge.
    The Vertical-Mount Managed Fiber Switch is loaded with software that enables management via SNMP, tag- and port-based VLANs, and IGMP Snooping and Port Security. For LANs using ring topologies, Spanning Tree protocol, Link-Loss-Learn™, and S-Ring™ are also available.

    High-performance features include nonblocking speed on all ports and 802.1p Quality of Service (QoS) traffic prioritization. The Managed Fiber Switch is ready for use as a backbone switch where a mix of bursty data traffic and priority streaming traffic for Voice over IP (VoIP) and audio/video applications is present.
