QNAP Releases the QSW-1208-8C and QSW-804-4C 10GbE/NBASE-T Switches

QNAP Releases the QSW-1208-8C and QSW-804-4C 10GbE/NBASE-T Switches

QNAP Systems, Inc. (QNAP) today released the QSW-1208-8C (twelve-port) and QSW-804-4C (eight-port) 10GbE/NBASE-T unmanaged switches to help home and small business users upgrade their networks to accommodate 10GbE speeds for bandwidth-demanding tasks. The NBASE-T-based switch delivers a cost-effective solution for improving network performance while using existing Cat 5e, 6 and 6a cables.

The QSW-1208-8C has twelve ports, including four SFP+ (fiber) and eight SFP+ (fiber)/ RJ45 (copper) combo ports while the QSW-804-4C has eight ports, including four SFP+ (fiber) and four SFP+ (fiber)/ RJ45 (copper) combo ports to ensure an optimized investment in 10GbE networking. The QSW-1208-8C and QSW-804-4C are also backward compatible with legacy devices, and support the IEEE 802.3az (Energy Efficient Ethernet, EEE) standard for reducing power consumption while maintaining high network performance and quality.

“The QNAP unmanaged switch series is excellent for home and small business users,” said Ken Cheah, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “the versatility of these 10GbE switches allows users of 10GbE-equipped QNAP NAS and virtually all 10GbE/NBASE-T-ready servers to fully leverage the high-speed potential of their devices, services, and infrastructure for greatly improving workflows and enhancing day-to-day tasks.”

The QSW-1208-8C and QSW-804-4C can function as a desktop-based or rackmount-based solution (a free rackmount kit is included in the package). Both switches feature a sleek modern design to blend in with other devices in digital homes and offices. The smart fan mechanism enables efficient heat dissipation to ensure high performance while staying near-silent for minimizing background noise.

Key specifications

QSW-1208-8C: 12-port (4 SFP+ fiber ports, 8 SFP+/ RJ45 copper combo ports)
QSW-804-4C: 8-port (4 SFP+ fiber ports, 4 SFP+/ RJ45 copper combo ports)
Dual desktop/rackmount; 5-speed (10GBASE-T/5GBASE-T/2.5GBASE-T/1000BASE-T/100BASE-TX), IEEE 802.3az compliant.

The QSW-1208-8C unmanaged switch is now available; the QSW-804-4C will be available in April, 2018. For more information and to view the full QNAP NAS and peripheral lineup, please visit Qnap.
