TRENDnet Releases 2.5G Unmanaged Network Switches

Both switches include 2.5GBASE-T RJ-45 ports, which allow users to achieve up to 2.5Gbps over existing Cat5e (or better) cabling.

TORRANCE, Calif. — TRENDnet announces the debut of what it says is one of the world’s first 2.5G unmanaged network switches.

Expanding its existing portfolio of multi-gigabit networking solutions, TRENDnet’s budget-friendly 2.5G unmanaged switches launch with two models.

The 8-port unmanaged 2.5G switch (TEG-S380) and the 5-port unmanaged 2.5G switch (TEG-S350) are the latest additions to TRENDnet’s multi-gigabit networking solutions family.

Both switches include 2.5GBASE-T RJ-45 ports, which allow users to achieve up to 2.5Gbps over existing Cat5e (or better) cabling.

TRENDnet says the new 2.5G switches are cost-effective means of increasing a network’s throughput, and helping to reduce or eliminate network bottlenecks.

“The world continues to evolve into a more and more digital place every day, and we’re finally seeing networking speeds that can manage the sheer volume of data that we have collected and need to share on a daily basis,” says Evan Davis, senior manager of solutions engineering at TRENDnet. “Today we have Wireless 6 routers and access points, as well as storage devices, with increased transfer speeds, that can greatly benefit from network switches that support higher throughput speeds, ultimately reducing bottlenecks and future-proofing the network.”

These multi-gigabit switches also feature a durable metal housing, as well as a fanless design to eliminate operating noise. For installation flexibility, the 2.5G switches are conveniently constructed to be mounted on the wall or placed on a desktop, according to the company.

These TRENDnet switches are IEEE 802.3bz compliant; they are also backward compatible with legacy technology hardware. No special configurations are required for these switches to connect and network devices to high-speed 2.5G Ethernet.

The introduction of these 2.5G unmanaged network switches are the latest additions to TRENDnet’s growing line of high-performance multi-gigabit networking solutions. TRENDnet recently launched its 2.5G PoE+ injector (TPE-215GI), said to be one of the first multi-gigabit PoE+ injectors available in the market.

Additionally, TRENDnet multi-gigabit solutions also currently include PCIe network adapters, such as the 2.5GBASE-T PCIe network adapter (TEG-25GECTX), and USB-C to Ethernet adapters, such as the USB-C 3.1 to 2.5GBASE-T Ethernet adapter (TUC-ET2G).
