Introduction 

 

 

In the modern business society, communication and sharing information is 

essential. Computer networks have proven to be one of the fastest 

methods of communication. 

 

Gigabit Ethernet over copper technology is a cost effective way for 

network equipments to be upgraded from Fast Ethernet to Gigabit speeds. 

By using standard 4-pair Category 5 copper cabling, it doesn’t need to pull 

expensive fiber optics cabling. This Technology will create high-speed 

backbone connections between switches, servers, database, and end 

stations. 

 

The 

GSW-0503T/0803T

 5/8-Port Gigabit Switch is an ideal solution 

for solving traffic block at the core of the network. It offers 5/8 

auto-negotiation 10/100/1000Base-T Gigabit Ethernet ports which 

can significantly improve your network backbone performance. 

Besides, this Switch will fit into any enterprise level network to act as 

an exit to the backbone switch.

 

 

The 

GSW-0503T/0803T

 5/8-Port Gigabit Switch features 

Auto 

MDI/MDIX 

function for each port. [In general, MDI means connecting to 

another Hub or Switch while MDIX means connecting to a workstation or 

PC. Therefore, Auto MDI/MDIX means that you can connect to another 

Switch or workstation without changing non-crossover or crossover 

cabling. Besides, it also features a store-and-forward switching and can 

auto-learn and store source address on a 4K MAC address table.

Hardware Description 

 

 

This Section describes the hardware of the 5/8-Port Gigabit Switch.   

 

Front & Rear Panel   

 

The Front Panel of the 5/8-Port Gigabit Switch consists of LED-indicators 

(100/1000, Link/Activity, Full duplex/Collision) for each Gigabit port and 

power LED-indicator for unit. 

 

 

 

 

Figure 2-1. The Front Panel of the 5/8-Port Gigabit Switch 

 

The Rear Panel of the 5/8-port Gigabit Switch consists of 5/8 

auto-negotiation 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet RJ-45 connectors (support 

Automatic MDI/MDIX

 function). 

RJ-45 Ports (Auto MDI/MDIX):

 5/8 auto-negotiation 10/100/1000 

Mbps Ethernet RJ-45 connectors   

 

[

Auto MDI/MDIX

 means that you can connect to another switch or 

workstation without changing straight through or crossover cabling.]

LED Indicators   

 

The LED Indicators gives a real-time indication of system operating 

statuses. There are 3 LED-indicators (100/1000, LNK/ACT, FDX/COL) for 

each Gigabit port and one Power LED for unit.

 The following table 

provides descriptions of LEDs status and their meaning.

Installation 

 

This section shows the installation procedures of the switch. 

 

Set the Switch on a sufficiently large flat space with a power outlet nearby. 

The surface where you put your Switch should be clean, smooth, level, 

and sturdy. Make sure there is enough clearance around the Switch to 

allow attachment of cables, power cord and air circulation.   

 

Attaching Rubber Feet 

 

A.  Make sure mounting surface on the bottom of the Switch is grease and 

dust free. 

B.  Remove adhesive backing from your Rubber Feet. 

C.  Apply the Rubber Feet to each corner on the bottom of the Switch. 

These footpads can prevent the Switch from shock/vibration. 

 

Power On   

 

Connect the cord of power adapter to the power socket on the rear panel 

of the Switch. The other side of power cord connects to the power outlet. 

Check the power indicator on the front panel to see if power is properly 

supplied.

Network Application 

 

 

This section provides you one sample of network topology in which the 

5/8-Port Gigabit Switch is used. In general, the 5/8-Port Gigabit Switch is 

designed as a high-bandwidth backbone switch. 

 

You can use the 5/8-Port Gigabit Switch to connect servers, switches, 

workstation, and PCs (Of course, the Gigabit 1000Base-T NIC has 

installed into the PC) to each other by connecting these devices directly to 

the Switch. The Switch automatically learns node address, which are 

subsequently used to filter and forward all traffic based on the destination 

address.  

 

For enterprise networks where large data broadcast are constantly 

processed, this switch is an ideal suitable for departmental switches to 

connect to the Core Switch. 

 

All ports can connect to departmental switches, and the departmental 

switches can be connected to the 5/8-Port Gigabit Switch. Then all the 

devices in this network can communicate with each other. Connecting 

servers to the Core Switch allow each end station to access the server’s 

data. 

 

This switch is an ideal solution for backbone connectivity. In the above 

example, servers, department switches, and workstation are directly 

connected to the Core Switch, 5/8-Port Gigabit Switch.
