24 Port 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet Switch - Rackmountable

The Monoprice 24-port Fast Ethernet Switch is a professional networking switch that conforms to the IEEE802.3 10Base-T Ethernet and IEEE802.3u 100Base-TX Fast Ethernet standards. The rack-mountable, 24-port design is perfect for use as a network switch for stack of servers or as a distribution switch to a roomful of server racks.

This device is designed to be mounted into a server rack, and features front panel RJ-45 LAN connections, as well as front-panel link/activity status LEDS. the switch is powered by a standard AC 3-prong equipment cable and has an on/off rocker switch on the back panel. A green LED on the front panel indicates when power is applied.

Although it is designed for professional, power networking applications, installation is as simple as plugging the unit into a power source inserting Cat5/Cat5e STP or UTP cables into the ports. The switch automatically detects the use of straight (MDI) or crossover (MDIX) cables and switches the connection to whichever is needed for the connected device. Therefore any of the twenty-four ports can be connected to the upstream hub or router and the others connected to downstream servers, hubs, or other switches.

This Monoprice network switch has an integrated 8K MAC address table and supports MAC address auto-learning and auto-aging. All ports can automatically diagnose half-/full-duplex modes and a dynamic buffer area automatically allocates to perform real-time network load balancing. The switch also examines error frames and adjusts itself as necessary to ensure reliable data packet transfers.

With all speeds, connections, and functions automatically configured and supported, there is no manual configuration or setup required. Simply plug it in and start using it right away!

Not for 220V racks

Pros: Nice price for a rack mount switch

Cons: Monoprice support informed us that the switch is not compatible with 220V rack power

I'm guessing this is a fine switch, but we had to return it because it was not compatible with the PDU for our rack.

Good choice but plan for the layout

Pros: This device is smart, easy to set into motion and needs no instructions. The price is excellent for all this.

Cons: Not so much a con as a warning: The power cord sticks out a lot at the back and so will not fit in many shallow racks. I had to order a right angle plug cord to make anything work in the space I had.

I Recommend this switch.

Pros: Fast, cheap, reliable

Cons: No uplink ports

This is a great switch, providing you don't need to daisy chain multiple units. It's quite unfortunate that you can't use this switch with a fully-utilized 24 port patch panel. 2 uplink ports would go a long way into making this a fully-useful switch.
