Networking & Datacom Benefits

Reliable, redundant office or industrial networking solutions from Black Box are easy to manage and provide built-in security. Scalable networks connect PoE over copper, or extend copper to fiber cable to economically and efficiently increase distance between devices. Remote power management and serial-over-IP technology round out the benefits you get with Black Box network solutions.

High Availability, Reliability, & Redundancy

Provide high reliability and redundancy needed for mission-critical networks and improve network resiliency with a 30-ms failover time in a ring configuration.

Flexible Remote Management
Flexible, Remote Management

Use protocols such as SNMP to collect, organize, and modify information to change the device’s behavior.

Built in Security
Built-in Security

To protect vital data, look for 802.1X port-based network access control, access control lists (ACLs), and virtual LANs (VLANS) to isolate guest traffic from the corporate network.

PoE Support

Add IP phones, wireless access points, security cameras, and other Ethernet-enabled devices to a network.


Easily expand the network as the business grows with Gigabit links, higher port densities, fiber uplinks, and management features.

Seamless Converter of Copper to Fiber
Seamless Converter of Copper to Fiber

Connect 10/100/1000/10G Ethernet to fiber segments without using crossover cables.

Autosensing Ports

Allow media converters to automatically recognize the current local network’s speed and adjust their own settings accordingly.


Enable the device port to automatically detect the cable type (straight-through or cross-wired).

Out of Band Management
Out-of-Band Management

Proactively perform ongoing maintenance and disaster recovery of mission-critical IT infrastructure, even when the network is down.

Remote Power Management

Unified power management of PDU and UPS equipment allow a user to trigger a soft shutdown of any server.

Standalone or Chassis Based
Standalone or Chassis-Based

Standalone media converters are deployed to convert one copper connection to fiber; chassis-based media converters can be installed in a variety of configurations for enterprise-wide deployment.

Serial over IP Access
Serial-over-IP Access

Get IP access and control of serial devices like servers, networking devices, security appliances, rack PDUs, virtual hosts, and wireless/telecom equipment.
