Even gigabit Ethernet switches are already mainstream in the market, for some reason, 10/100 Mbps Ethernet switches are still alive in the market. 10/100 Mbps Ethernet switches are released in the market earlier than gigabit and 10G Ethernet switches. The transmission rate of 10/100 Mbps means 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps auto-adapted. When we say a switch is 10/100Mbps, it means the switch supports both transmission rates and nowadays most industrial switch hubs are designed with auto-adaptive features. It will detect and adapt different rates according to the devices connected with it. Under certain network needs for simple network demands, 10/100 Mbps switch is still enough for the end-users. Normally, such network demands simply mean internet surfing and browsing. For more complicated internet and network activities, especially when file transfer and video involved, gigabit switches would be a much better choice.
Generally speaking, Ethernet network speeds cover from Ethernet (802.11) at 10Mbps, Fast Ethernet (IEEE 802.3u) at 100 Mbps, Gigabit Ethernet (IEEE 802.3-2008) at 1000 Mbps and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (IEEE 802.3a) at 10 Gbps. Nowadays, industrial switch hub have been upgraded to a gigabit type of 10G or even 100G.
H3B has developed a full range of 10/100 Mbps Ethernet switches as they are the basic models for Ethernet switches. At the moment we have 5/8/16/24 ports models for you to choose from. They are designed with different mounting solutions. They can be installed by both wall-mounted or rack-mounted. And we've modified and improved according to customers' feedbacks. Now our models are improved with the best function as well as perfect packing details. We also have rich experience in both ODM and OEM. For 16 ports and 24 ports, the basic design is a 19-inch rack mount size that can fit perfectly in the cabinets. In order to meet different needs, we also developed a mini size version to help customers to reduce the shipping cost and enable them to be used in limited spaces. We are always open to innovation and we embrace changes, just to make the best products for you.
