Magnum Quad-Series Fiber Switches
up to 16 ports, configurable


• Quad-switch modules allow user selection of mixed-media Fiber ports (all connector types) and 10/100 Mb Twisted-Pair ports
• Provides switching services to enhance the performance of 10/100 Mb Ethernet networks by segmenting the network traffic
• High performance operation, plug-and-play installation for switching services, transparent to system software
• Has a compact package for installation in offices and labs, with metal case and autoranging internal power supply
• Available options include AC, or -48VDC, 24VDC, 100VDC, and 125VDC power, dual-source, “Reverse” rack mount, ETSI and 23” Telco brackets


Magnum Quad-Series Fiber Switches boost the performance of large Ethernet LANs, with the flexibility of both fiber and twisted-pair switched ports. Any mix of fiber or RJ-45, 100 Mb or 10 Mb switched ports and connector types may be configured. The Magnum Quad-Series provide the switching speed and the reliability needed for increased network performance using any available fiber media type or twisted-pair cabling.

The Magnum Quad-Series Fiber Switches offer the maximum in application flexibility with a series of fiber and twisted-pair port connector types. All applicable fiber port types (100 Mb FX-ST, SC, MTRJ, and 10 Mb FL) and cable modes (2Km multi-mode, 20Km single-mode and 40Km “long reach” single-mode) are configurable in 4-port modules.  Mixed-media combination modules (4-port modules with one fiber port and three twisted-pair ports) are also supported in all of the Quad-Series switch models.

In a common application, groups of standard dual-speed 10/100 hubs, 10 Mb hubs, or 100 Mb hubs and switches would form a series of subnets for workgroups or multi-system power users. A separate switched port on a Magnum Quad-Series Switch would serve each subnet, and each of these subnets would have full 100 Mb or 10 Mb bandwidth. Local traffic on one subnet, either 100 Mb or 10 Mb, is switch-isolated from the other subnets for high overall network performance.

Designed for use in organizations with multiple workgroups, remote offices and network traffic centers, the Magnum Quad-Series
Switches are easy to install and use. Addresses of attached nodes are automatically learned and maintained, adapting the switching services to network changes and expansions to provide plug-and-play operation.  Front-mounted LEDs provide status information on each port. Large 8 MB packet buffers provide advanced performance, even with unbalanced loads. Store-and-forward switching filters all faulty packets to minimize traffic congestion.

Magnum Quad-Series Fiber Switches have a rugged metal case and an auto-ranging power supply for operation with standard AC power worldwide. The Quad-series and all other Magnum products are designed and manufactured in the USA and backed by a three-year warranty.
