3Com Korea (www.3com.co.kr) recently introduced its "3Com Baseline Plus" line, a new family of versatile, easy-to-use local area network (LAN) switches that take unmanaged networks - common among many small-tomedium (SMB) businesses - to the next level of enterprise-level, network intelligence.
The new Baseline Plus Switches can add "smart" switching, such as link aggregation, virtual LAN (VLAN) segmentation, traffic prioritization and traffic port monitoring to value-priced SMB solutions.
The 3Com Baseline Switch 2816-SFP Plus adds Gigabit Ethernet performance to business networks that don't need sophisticated management capabilities, but can increase control and enhance the intelligence of the network.
"As the unmanaged Gigabit switch with intelligence can configure a network under 500 users, business customers can now get more enterprise-class features in a switched network at the same price as traditional unmanaged switches," said Choi Ho-won, president of 3Com Korea. "The new Baseline Plus solution is designed to solve SMB customer problems, such as the poor use of network bandwidth, network-dragging traffic bottlenecks, the possibility of undetected "suspect" data, and adverse effects on business-critical applications. We will continue to lead the SMB market by providing network products that can add intelligence network function so that SMB customers can cope with changing environments."
