5/8-Port 10/100Mbps N-Way Ethernet Switch Specification Sheet

TE100-S55E/TE100-S88E 5/8-Port 10/100Mbps N-Way Ethernet SwitchTRENDnet’s TE100-S55E+ / TE100-S88E, 5/8-port palm-sized 10/100Mbps N-way Ethernet Switch, present the perfect choice for small workgroups for any desktop space. They allow users to simply plug any port to either a 10Mbps or 100Mbps network to multiply bandwidth, boost response time and satisfy heavy load demands. With 5 or 8 ports readily available, TE100-S55E / S88E are easy to install and expand. The N-way ports automatically negotiate between 10Base-T and 100Base-TX network speeds, as well as between half- and full-duplex modes. Thus, any port is capable of uplinking to Fast Ethernet or downlinking to Ethernet. The TE100-S55E / TE100-S88E provide cost-effective, and high-performance solutions.
