* SMC adds Gigabit switch for SMB Ethernet
By Brian Santo
SMC Networks has added a new switch to its EZ line for SOHO, SMB and enterprise applications. The EZ Switch 10/100/1000 8-port Gigabit Smart Switch with Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a 1RU 8-port Smart Managed switch designed for Gigabit Ethernet via copper connectivity to desktops.
PoE support reduces network installation costs and complexities by enabling the switch to provide power through the Category 5 cable connections. A Web-based management user interface makes setup and management fast and easy, according to SMC. The switches are available at suggested price of $299.99.
