ASUSTOR Switch’nstor: A truly compact 5-port 2.5 GbE switch

Designed to quickly and easily upgrade small 100-Megabit and Gigabit networks to 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet, this powerful and compact ASUSTOR Switch’nstor allows you to double the performance of traditional Gigabit Ethernet, while ensuring full backward compatibility with the devices they have. of previous generation connectivity

ASUSTOR, one of the most important and innovative NAS manufacturers founded in 2011 with a direct investment from ASUSTek Computer Inc., presents Switch ?? ‘nstor, its first 5-port switch, which allows you to easily bring the benefits of 2.5 GbE connectivity to small LANs. Based on the controller Realtek 2.5GbE and able to combine aesthetics and high performance in the best possible way, this compact 5-port switch allows you to easily update small 100/1000 local networks via CAT5e cables, doubling the performance compared to a traditional Gigabit network.

ASUSTOR Switch’nstor: small switch, but lots of connectivity

Ideal for maximizing the performance of ASUSTOR NAS with 2.5GbE connectivity and taking advantage of the speeds of transfer of PCs and laptops with USB 3.2 port, to which the ASUSTOR AS-U2.5G2 adapter can be connected, the new Switch’nstor guarantees, in addition to high performance and reliability, also full backward compatibility with devices equipped with Gigabit and 100-Megabit connectivity.

Equipped with a sturdy metal chassis, which allows it an optimal heat dissipation without having to use fans and at the same time also gives it an attractive look, this 5-port switch, thanks to the weight of only 350 grams and at its very small size, it can be placed anywhere, even on the wall, with extreme simplicity. The new Switch ?? nstor, which is covered by a 2 year warranty, will be available in Italy starting from November with a retail price of Euro 144.90 including VAT.
