    Introducing the Switch 408 Front of the Switch 100/Fdx Select Button To optimize the amount of information that can be displayed for each of the switch ports without overwhelming you with LEDs, the Switch 408 uses a dual-function 100/Fdx LED for each port. The operation of this LED is controlled by the 100/Fdx Select button situated at the end of the row of LEDs.

    Introducing the Switch 408 Switch Operation Overview Forwarding, Filtering, Flooding. When the switch receives a packet, it determines the destination address, and looks for the address in the address table. Based on the port location of that address, the switch then determines whether to forward, filter-out, or flood the packet.

  • Page 16: Simultaneous Network Communications

    Introducing the Switch 408 Switch Operation Overview Simultaneous Network Communications As a part of the traffic isolation benefits provided by the Switch 408 address table operation, the switch enhances network performance because it can conduct multiple, simultaneous network connections. Instead of sharing the network bandwidth, as in connections to a hub, each connection has its own 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps bandwidth.

    Installing the Switch 408 Installation Procedures Installation Precautions: Follow these precautions when installing your Switch 408. Cautions Make sure that the power source circuits are properly grounded, then use the power adapter supplied with the switch to connect it to the power source. When installing the switch, since the unit does not have an On/Off power switch, an AC power outlet must be located near the switch and should be easily accessible...

    Installing the Switch 408 Installation Procedures Connect no devices that have a fixed full-duplex configuration. Because the switch 408 complies with the IEEE 802.3u standard, if a device connected to the switch has a fixed configuration of full duplex, the device will not connect correctly to the switch.
