This plug-n-play 8-port optical fiber switch offers eight available SFP (Small Form Factor) slots which may be populated with most brands of SFP modules in either Singlemode or Multimode types. In this bundle, we include a one Singlemode SFP to get you started. The other seven slots are empty and ready to be populated with additional modules. Zero configuration is required and all ports will see all traffic. The base unit also includes the single 1GB auto-negotiating 10/100/1000 Ethernet Port.
Customers use the Cable Rack 8 Port fiber switch for a variety of reasons including connecting diverse fiber network topologies together with both single mode and multi mode fiber. In addition, security camera applications are very popular use cases when deploying either SX transceiver or LH type fiber transceivers for connections to home, business or commercial optic camera deployments. Because this 8 port switch with SFP includes a one singlemode optic, you'll be able to immediately connect to your existing singlemode fiber network using and LC style patch cord.
