The energy-efficient NGS16C2 16-Port Gigabit L2 Web-Smart Managed Network Switch features 16 twisted-pair RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet ports that support auto-negotiable 10/100/1000 Mbps and auto MDI/MDIX cross-over detection functions for convenient plug-and-play capability. Two dedicated mini-GBIC SFP ports are also included for uplinking data to other switches via optical fiber or copper.

Easy-to-read LEDs indicate connection and activity status for each port. Built-in web-smart management software lets you monitor and control each connected device via secure web-based interface. Each port supports up to 2 Gbps with full duplex.

The heavy-duty metal housing mounts into 1U of an EIA-standard 19-inch rack using the included brackets and user-supplied hardware. Or attach the included rubber feet to the bottom of the unit for installation on a flat desktop surface. The five-foot input cord with NEMA 5-15P plug connects to a protected UPS, generator or mains input AC source.

Frequently Asked Questions

Gigabit Ethernet provides 10X the performance of Fast Ethernet technology. Gigabit Ethernet provides data throughput of up to 1 Gigabit/second, while Fast Ethernet delivers only 100 Mbits/second. Installation of Gigabit Ethernet technologies helps future proof network installations and ensures higher internal network performance.
Yes, however, in an application where managed switches are required, such as I/O over Ethernet, it is advisable to use all managed switches. Large networks, more than 10 devices ( PLCs, HMIs, drives, etc. ) should use only managed switches for multicast control and diagnostics.
The SFP fiber uplink ports (also called mini-GBIC ports) allow multiple switches to be connected together or connected to the network backbone with fiber cables.
Dedicated SFP ports each have their own dedicated switching capacity (2 Gbps per port with full duplex). Shared or combo SFP ports share their switching capacity with designated RJ45 ports, so using a shared SFP port makes the associated RJ45 port unavailable.

Additional FAQs may be available on the NGS16C2 model support page.
