About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

Ethernet devices

All the networking systems are ballooning up, requiring you to send or receive packets of data in an increasing amount. Thus, the local area networks (LAN) and wide-area networks (WAN) call for well-designed protocols and communication formats to ensure better data transfer speeds. But what device or platform will fulfill this specific criterion without any hassle. That's the Ethernet, of course! But there are plenty of reasons why you need to own these high-speed Ethernet Networks in your arsenal. With that being said, we, at ALLHDD, brought you the fast Ethernet switches, which will be bliss for your computer networking setup. Here's how!

Ethernet Protocols Are Out-Of- This World!

These protocols are not just customary but are necessary for effective communication between all the connected devices. Whether the communication message is delivered, pending, or in unknown status, these communication protocols ensure more comfortable and faster communication.

All the connected devices send a packet of data that contains the essential information and is necessary to pass on. Thus, equipping your unit with a faulty and flawed Ethernet protocol might ruin the overall setup. Also, the packet collisions can destroy the Ethernet networks or computer networking this way.

Ethernet Types And Functionalities:

Ethernet usually has a standard range of up to 10km of the periphery. But under special conditions, this range can be extended. The fiber optic media converter can convert an Ethernet device into a fiber optic cable network containing the CAT5/CAT6 Copper cable before.

There are generally three types of Ethernet Devices which let you boom your connectivity range and ensure a seamless wired connection between your LAN devices.

Fast Ethernet is bliss!

The first and foremost type of Ethernet is the ''Fast Ethernet,'' which utilizes twisted-pair cables (CAT 5) for effective communication. The maximum speed that this internet connectivity can produce is up to 100mbps.

Gigabit Ethernet is a little extra!

Gigabit Ethernet is way more beyond the previous one! This type of connectivity offers up to 1000mbps speed. Therefore, considering the physical layer, this gigabit Ethernet is supported by the four pairs of twisted-pair cables contributing a little extra to the faster internet connectivity.

If you're into the video calling system or want to connect your camera, Gigabit Ethernet can be the best choice for your local area networks. Also, utilizing the CAT5e cables for connectivity will not confine your expectation. You can even use 1000Base SX fiber optic cables or Ethernet cable to cover up the range of 500m or above. 1-Port Gigabit Ethernet is the most common type in this category.

10 Gigabit Ethernet- Speed Beyond Expectations!

As mentioned in the name, 10-Gigabit Ethernet can support up to 10gbps speed, backed up by the CAT6a and CAT7 twisted-pair cables. However, a replacement with the fiber optic cables can extend the range up to 10000 meters.
