8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch - Managed - Wall Mount with Front Access

Easily deploy or scale your network with this Gigabit Ethernet switch, adding eight copper Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) connections. This IP30 industrial network switch provides intelligent Layer 2 management. Its rugged, compact design and wall-mount option with front access make it ideal for demanding applications, even where space is limited.

Expand your network

This GbE switch lets you expand your network by connecting up to eight RJ45 devices. The 8-Port switch enables up to eight users to share files and devices, such as printers and scanners, over a LAN connection, by enhancing your existing network capacity with additional ports.

Wall-mountable with front access

With its compact design, you can wall-mount the Gigabit switch to provide convenient front access to ports and indicators. It’s ideal for a wide range of applications, including tight installation areas with significant electromagnetic interference, such as control cabinets and panels. The network switch is also DIN-rail mountable.

Efficient Layer 2 management

The scalable switch delivers efficient and stable performance, with Layer 2 management capabilities. This lets you control packet traffic on a busy network, and customize your settings to achieve optimal network performance, offering improved efficiency and reliability.

Rugged industrial design

This rugged network switch features an IP30-rated metal housing and extended operating temperature range of -40°C to 75°C, which makes it ideal for a wide range of conditions. The sturdy metal enclosure offers durability, even in harsh industrial environments.

Reliable connection for seamless network performance

With support for 10/100/1000Mbps transfer speeds, this managed switch supports full/half-duplex auto-negotiation, jumbo frames, and auto MDI/MDIX operation. This lets you connect your network devices quickly and easily, with little to no configuration required.

To help prevent any unnecessary downtime, the switch features redundant 12-58V DC terminal block power inputs, which ensures seamless operation in the event of power dips or failures.

The IES81GW is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
