Simple, Rich-Featured Switching for Diverse Users
The Baseline Switch 2016 is a 16-port unmanaged, 10/100 switch designed for small to midsize offices. This rack mountable, business-class switch can be installed in a wiring closet or as a free-standing unit.
The switch comes preconfigured for fast, easy installation using economical copper wiring. Auto-negotiation adjusts the port speed to match the communicating device.
Any of the switchs nonblocking 16 ports can deliver 10BASE-T Ethernet for users with average bandwidth requirements, or 100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet for power users or those with newer network connections. To simplify connecting cables, all 16 ports come with automatic detection of the Ethernet cable type (MDI/MDIX).
Like all 3Com Baseline products, this switch provides powerful, feature-rich practicality in a sturdy package designed for reliability, long life, and low total cost of ownership.
