QNAP Introduces QSW-M2108 2.5GbE & 10GbE L2 Web Managed Switch Series, Providing Cost-Effective High-Performance Network Management for SMBs
Taiwan, Taipei, December 15, 2020 - QNAP® Systems, Inc., a leading computing, and storage solutions innovator, today released the QSW-M2108 Series Layer 2 Web managed Switches, including the QSW-M2108-2C and QSW-M218-2S. Featuring 2.5GbE, 10GbE and practical Layer 2 management functions, the QSW-M2108 series enables efficient bandwidth utilization to offer an entry-level network management solutions for SMBs.
The QSW-M2108-2C comes with two 10GbE SFP+/RJ45 combo ports and eight 2.5GbE RJ45 ports (ten ports in total). The QSW-M2108-2S comes with two 10GbE SFP+ ports and eight 2.5GbE ports (ten ports in total). The QSW-M2108-2C is compatible with 10GbE and NBASE-T technologies to support five networking speeds (10Gbps, 5Gbps, 2.5Gbps, 1Gbps and 100Mbps), allowing administrators to realize higher network speeds with existing Cat 5e and 6a cables. QSW-M2108 series switches also provide Layer 2 management functions (such as LACP, VLAN, ACL and LLDP) via a user-friendly Web GUI for efficient network bandwidth controls and enhanced network security.
"With increasing demand for high-speed networking in SMBs, the QSW-M2108 series not only provides eight 2.5GbE RJ45 ports but also two 10GbE SFP+ ports or SFP+/RJ45 combo ports,” said Frank Liao, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “the QNAP QSW-M2108 switch series allows users to flexibly deploy bandwidth and enjoy an easy-to-use Web GUI to simplify network setup and management."
The QSW-M2108 series is one of the few web-managed switches that supports the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and is compliant with IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet and IEEE802.3x Flow Control in full-duplex mode. Users can deploy small/medium-scale networks that support expansion, redundancy, and loop prevention, while avoiding packet loss from unparalleled bandwidth, and reducing power consumption for low-speed and inactive connections. With its smart cooling system, the QSW-M2108 series switch ensures high-speed network performance while minimizing distracting background noise.
- QSW-M2108-2C: 10 ports (2 10GbE SFP+/RJ45 combo ports and 8 2.5GbE RJ45 ports.
- QSW-M2108-2S: 10 ports (2 10GbE SFP+ ports and 8 2.5GbE RJ45 ports.
Compliant with IEEE 802.3x and IEEE 802.3az; Auto Negotiation; QSW-M2108-2C is compatible with 10GbE and NBASE-T technologies to support five network speeds (10Gbps, 5Gbps, 2.5Gbps, 1Gbps, and 100Mbps).
