It delivers data to devices based on the priority and type of traffic. It allows real-time traffic prioritization based on Layer 3 TOS/DSCP parameters. It automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100 and 10/100/1000 ports. It supports IEEE 802.3az standard; allows lower power consumption when operated with IEEE-compliant client devices. It provides an at-a-glance view of status, activity, speed, and full-duplex operation. It helps ensure reliable communications during full-duplex operation. It automatically selects individual port speed depending on client capabilities without the need for manual intervention, allowing for simple Plug-and-Play operation. It enables quiet operation for deployment in open spaces.
