Setup Guide
Chapter 1 Introduction
In today’s society, communication and sharing information are
essential to our lifestyle. Computer networks have proven to be one
of the fastest methods of communication.
The FM2008/2009 switches are compact desktop-sized switches
that are an ideal solution for the SOHO (Small Office or Home Office) network user. They provide a full wire-speed, Fast Ethernet
switching function that allows a high-performance, low-cost connection. Each switch features store-and-forward switching and can
auto-learn and store source addresses on an 8K-entry MAC address table.
The switches provide 8 switched, auto-sensing 10/100 Mbps RJ-45
Ethernet ports. Each switch will automatically detect the speed of
the device(s) connected to it, allowing the use of both 10 and
100Mbps legacy devices. The 10Mbps bandwidth will accommodate
10Mbps workgroup hubs while simultaneously providing the
100Mbps bandwidth needed to accommodate multimedia applications. In addition, each RJ-45 port supports Auto MDI/MDIX function.
The FM2009 switch also provides one 100Base-FX fiber port. Four
types of fiber connectors are available: SC, MT-RJ, VF-45 (multimode), and SC (single-mode). The fiber port can be used to connect to a remote site up to 2 kilometers (multi-mode) or 15–60 kilometers (SC single-mode) away.
With its built-in Web-based Management, managing and configuring the switch is easy: From cabinet management to port-level control and monitoring, you can visually configure and manage your
