Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Overview

The evolution of WLAN technology, from 11ac to WiFi 6/6E and upcoming WiFi 7, pushes wireless connectivity boundaries for improved efficiency and network capacity. To match these advancements, wired speed must also upgrade. Unlike costly 10 Gigabit Ethernet upgrades, Multi-Gigabit Ethernet utilizes existing Cat 5e and Cat 6 wiring, saving expensive re-cabling expenses.

Worry-free PoE Power Budget

Auto-Speed Detection

The Multi-Gigabit technology supports network speeds of 100Mbps, 1Gbps, 2.5Gbps, 5Gbps, and 10Gbps. It enables each switch port to automatically detect the required speed of the connected device.

Worry-free PoE Power Budget

Budget-Friendly Solution

You can utilize existing Cat 5e cables to upgrade network speed to 5G with the Multi-Gigabit solution, offering a cost-efficient way to increase network speeds by up to 5 times. This helps you save on infrastructure costs.

Worry-free PoE Power Budget

Affordability Meets Performance

If a 10G upgrade isn't currently feasible, the more affordable 2.5G option delivers a significant improvement in Ethernet speeds for your network.

Experience Multi-Gig in Your Daily Life

You can enjoy high-quality, buffer-free 4K or 8K video streaming and lag-free gaming at home with our 5/8-port 2.5G small switch. In your studio, boost transfer speeds for file backups with our web-managed Gigabit with 2.5G or 10G switch. And for medium to large offices, upgrade to WiFi 6/6E infrastructure with our 2.5G smart managed switch.
