Take advantage of Gigabit transfer rates across all ports with the LGS528 28-Port Managed Gigabit Ethernet Switch from Linksys. In addition to Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, users also benefit from dual combo mini-GBIC (SFP) ports for high speed local network links. This high-performance switch features an energy efficient design complete with support for Layer 3 static routing, IPV6, and IP telephony.
To accompany the high-speed network connections offered by the LGS528 switch, Linksys has included intuitive Quality of Service (QoS) functionality to ensure bandwidth intensive tasks have priority on the network. Security features include MAC-based port security, advanced DHCP snooping, and IP-MAC-Port binding. The network can even be expanded beyond the capabilities of this switch with support for multiple high-bandwidth trunks between switches for enhanced availability and redundancy.
Once configured, the Linksys LGS528 switch comes equipped with 28 Gigabit Ethernet ports along with dual combo RJ-45+SFP ports. A 56 Gbps switching capacity, a 16K MAC address table, and a 9K jumbo frame ensures optimal performance even when the switch is being pushed to its limit. Network administrators also benefit from dedicated LED indicators showing both system and link/activity status.
