Omnitron FlexSwitch 2X4GT

Omnitron FlexSwitch 2X4GTThe FlexSwitch™ 2X4GT is a six-port Ethernet switch with four 10/100/1000 RJ-45 ports, one 10G (10GBASE-R) SFP+ or XFP fibre port, and one RJ-45 port that auto-negotiates to Gigabit or 10G (1000BASE-T/10GBASE-T). FlexSwitch 2X4GT models that support 10G SFP+ transceivers also support Gigabit transceivers for a seamless upgrade path from Gigabit to 10G. This compact unmanaged standalone unit offers rate-switching, and MAC learning for bridging Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks.

The 10G fibre port is compatible with all MSA compliant 1G SFP, 10G SFP+ and XFP transceivers (depending on the model), including xWDM optics, 10GBASE-LRM, and direct attach cables. The 1G/10G RJ-45 port is capable of full data rate up to 100 meter of CAT-6A (or better) cabling, and conserves energy by operating in Short Reach mode when the cabling is less than 30 meters.

The four RJ-45 ports support 10/100/1000Mbps bridging, with auto-negotiation for data-rate and duplex mode. The RJ-45 ports also support auto MDI/MDI-X, eliminating the need for crossover cables.

Benefits Include

  • Supports MAC learning
  • LEDs for power, port link/activity, data rates and transceiver status
  • DC power input via barrel connector using external AC adapter or 2-Pin terminal connector
  • 10,056 maximum frame size
  • Can be wall-mounted and rack-mounted
  • Commercial (0 to 50ºC), wide (-40º to 60ºC) and extended (-40º to 75ºC) temperature ranges

Application Example

The 2X4GT can connect up to five computers, storage devices, and printers within a local workstation network. The 10Gigbit Ethernet fibre uplink can connect the workgroup network to a 10G core switch which is part of the enterprise network.

The 2X4GT is compact and easy to use, and does not require user configuration for plug-and-play installation with features such as auto-negotiation and auto-crossover.
