Product Description

xSwitch is the world’s only zero-configuration Ethernet switch optimized for Livewire® IP-Audio applications. Fast setup requires only IP address assignment via front-panel OLED display or Axia® iProbe software. Features 8 10/100MBit Ethernet ports — 4 with Power-over-Ethernet to power Axia xNodes, Telos® VSet phones, and other networked devices compatible with the IEEE 802.1af PoE standard. Two Gigabit ports are provided for trunking, both with RJ-45 (copper) and SFP (fiber) connections; supports redundant copper/SFP Gigabit connections with auto-switching. Supports 2,000 Multicast groups and 2,000 ARP table entries (8x more than other small-form Ethernet switches). Web-based management interface uses built-in HTTP server. 9.5” x 11” half-rack form factor allows two xSwitches to be racked side-by-side, or placed in a rackmount with Axia xNode IP-Audio interfaces. Noiseless and fan-free; can be conveniently placed adjacent to your audio devices, rack-mounted using included hardware, or wall-mounted (with an accessory kit available separately).

10/100/1000 Ports

The 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports use standard RJ-45 connectors.

Connecting to 100BASE-T-Compatible Devices

When connecting the ports to 100BASE-TX-compatible devices, you can use a two or four twisted-pair, Category 5e, straight-through cable.

Connecting to 1000BASE-T Device

When connecting the ports to 1000BASE-T devices, you must use a four twisted-pair, Category 6, straight-through cable.

SFP Module Ports

The SFP module slot on a dual-purpose port uses SFP modules for fiber-optic and copper uplink ports. xSwitch works with the following supported SFP modules:

Cisco Copper SFP Model:GLC-T=

Cisco Copper SFP Model: SFP-GE-T=

Cisco Multimode fiber model: GLC-SX-MMD=

Cisco Multimode fiber model: GLC-SX-MM-RGD


Complies with the European Union Directive 2002/95/EC on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS), as amended by Commission Decisions 2005/618/EC, 2005/717/ EC, 2005/747/EC (RoHS Directive), and WEEE.
