Use it to take Gigabit Ethernet directly to the desktop! Standards-based for easy integration of 10-, 100-, and 1000-Mbps devices, these unmanaged, rack-mountable switches feature 10/100/1000 automatic speed and full/half-duplex sensing plus Auto Uplink™ on every port. Users can take advantage of the their ability to deliver large amounts of multimedia, image, and video information in no time at all. Ideal for workgroups, labs, departments, or growing offices looking for oustanding performance at a low price.

High Capacity

1000-Mbps speeds and a switching capacity of up to 48 Gbps meet the performance needs for even the most bandwidth-hungry applications. The JGS500 series are perfect for graphics, multimedia, and other applications that have to move large files across the network quickly.


Aggressive prices enable your workgroup, department or small network to ramp up to Gigabit speeds, even all the way to the desktop.


Each port is equipped with automatic speed and duplex sensing, plus Auto Uplink to adjust for straight-through or crossover cables to make the right link. Standards-based design makes it easy to combine 10-, 100-, and 1000-Mbps devices on your network.


Easy to set up and easy to use, these unmanaged switches have per port LED’s for effortless network monitoring. They are compact enough for the desktop but come with a rack-mount kit. They are also compatible with PC, Macintosh, Linux, and Unix operating systems.
