    A switch is a viable solution even if demanding applications, such as multimedia production and video conferencing, are on the horizon.The most promising techniques,...
  • Page 5 For Ethernet networks, a switch is an effective way of eliminating the problem of chaining hubs beyond the “two-repeater limit.” A switch can be used to split parts of the network into different collision domains, making it possible to expand your Ethernet network beyond the 205-meter network diameter limit for 100BASE-TX networks.

    200Mbps, any one of its five ports may be used to cascade to an additional switch to open a Full-Duplex Fast Ethernet pipe. • The DES-1108 is the perfect choice for a department or office planning to upgrade to Fast Ethernet. The DES-1108 can accommodate 10Mbps or 100Mbps devices, providing a flexible solution for existing (10Mbps) Ethernet workgroups.
  • Page 7 • Flow control for any port. This minimizes dropped packets by sending out collision signals when the port’s receiving buffer is full. • Data filtering rate eliminates all error packets, runts, etc., per port at wire-speed for 100Mbps operation and 10Mbps operation.

    Front Panel (LEDs) Power: This green indicator light is on when the DES-1108 is receiving power; otherwise, it is off. Link/Activity (1-8): This LED indicator light is green when the port is connected to a 100Mbps Fast Ethernet station. The green indicator blinks as Ethernet data is transmitted or received.

    Hub/Switch to DES-1108 A hub (10 or 100BASE-TX) can be connected to the DES-1108 via a two-pair Category 3, 4, or 5 UTP/STP Straight-Through or Crossover cable. For 100Mbps operation a Category 5 cable must be used. The connection is accomplished from any port of the hub to any port of the DES-1108.

    Crossover) and adjust themselves accordingly to pass data over the network. 3. What is the maximum length of Category 3, 4 or 5 twisted pair cable that can be used between the DES-1108 and other devices such as routers, switches, computers, etc.? The maximum length of Category 3, 4 or 5 twisted pair cable that can be used between computers and other devices on a network is 100 meters or about 328 feet.
