QNAP gears up with affordable new switches

QNAP has released their new QSW-1208-8C and QSW-804-4C 10GbE/NBASE-T unmanaged switches to help home and small businesses users upgrade their networks.

“The QNAP unmanaged switch series is excellent for home and small business users,” said Ken Cheah, Product Manager of QNAP. “The versatility of these 10GbE switches allows users to 10GbE-equipped QNAP NAS and virtually all 10GbE/NBASE-T ready servers to fully leverage the high-speed potential of their devices, services and infrastructure for greatly improving workflows and enhancing day-to-day tasks.”

The NBASE-T-based switches delivers a cost-effective solution for improving network performance while using existing Cat 5e, 6 and 6a cables.

The QSW-1208-8C has twelve ports, including four SFP+ and eight SFP+/RJ45 combo ports and the QSW-804-4C has eight ports, including four SFP+ and four SFP+/RJ45 combo ports to ensure an optimised investment in 10GbE networking.

The QSW-1208-8C and QSW-804-4C are also backward compatible with legacy devices, and support the IEEE 802.3az standard for reducing power consumption while maintaining high network performance and quality.

The QSW-1208-8C and QSW-804-4C can function as a desktop-based or rackmount-based solution. Both switches feature a sleek modern design to blend in with other devices in digital homes and offices. The smart fan mechanism enables efficient heat dissipation to ensure high performance while staying near-silent for minimising background noise.

The QSW-1208-8C unmanaged switch is now available; the QSW-804-4C will be available in April, 2018. For more information and to view the full QNAP NAS and peripheral lineup, please visit www.qnap.com.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
