Introduction 

 

 

The 

GSW-0504/0804

 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-0504/0804

 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 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. The details of LED indicator description refer 

to the LED Indicator section. 

 

 

Rear Panel 

 

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

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

„

 

RJ-45 Ports (Auto MDI/MDIX):

 5/8-port 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 power cord 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.
