• Full duplex IEEE 802.3x and half duplex backpressure flow control
• Power input 12~48 VDC wide range redundant power inputs
• Automatic MDI/MDI-X crossover for plug-and-play
The NSM-216 has 16 Ethernet ports that support 10/100 Base-TX, with a 10/100M auto negotiation feature and auto MDI/MDI-X function. It can connect 16 workstations and automatically switches the transmission speed (10 Mbps or 100 Mbps) for corresponding connections. All Ethernet ports have memory buffers that support the store-and-forward mechanism, which assures that data can be transmitted properly. The NSM-216 supports advanced network standards to optimize network performance, reduce maintenance costs, and secure network safety. The flow control mechanism is also negotiated. There is link/data rate LEDs for each port to aid troubleshooting.
