AECONNECT Unmanaged Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches are basic plug-and-play devices with no remote configuration, management, or monitoring options.AECONNECT offers a full line of Commercial and industrial unmanaged PoE switches that boast a variety of port-count, speed (including 10Gigabit), mounting, and fiber. Each PoE switch distributes 30 watts per port, which delivers high-speed data transmission while powering devices over long distances. With an industrial-grade design focus, our switches can provide surge and static protection to help ensure consistent operation in irregular and harsh conditions. If you need to simplify your network, deploying unmanaged PoE switches can streamline your management and maintenance practices
An unmanaged switch is simple, connecting Ethernet devices with a fixed configuration that you cannot make any changes to, often used for small networks or to add temporary groups of systems to a larger network.
The advantage to unmanaged switches when it comes to performance is that you can plug and play immediately with your network. There’s no need to set anything up, and it has in-built QoS services to ensure its working well.
Unmanaged switches, on the whole, have very basic security. They’re secured by ensuring you have no vulnerabilities from system to system, which accessories like a lockable port cover can ensure no-one is tampering with the device directly.
Size is not the only thing that matters when deciding on the right switch, as you can get switches with any number of ports, both managed and unmanaged. However, when it comes to smaller networks, such as for small businesses, the home, a single office, or so on, then an unmanaged switch is more likely to be used.
