Enterprise switch. (New Products).
The PowerConnect 5212 is an all-gigabit, 12-port switch for medium-
to large-sized organizations requiring high-performance connectivity to
centralized resources, such as servers or high-speed network backbones,
or gigabit connectivity to desktop computers. The switch offers advanced
management and security features, including dynamic VLANs, multilayer
class of service, SSL/SSH encryption and support for the rapid spanning
tree protocol. The maximum switching capacity across 12 Gigabit Ethernet ports is 24 Gbps, while the maximum forwarding rate is 17.9 Mpps. The
switch provides flexibility with four SFP transceiver slots that can be
used in lieu of up to four copper gigabit ports (any copper/SFP
configuration will yield exactly 12 usable ports of Gigabit Ethernet).
The SFP slots provide the option of inserting different types of fiber
media using small form-factor pluggable modules.--Dell Computers
