Fast Ethernet Switch

Power-saving, High-performance Ethernet Networking

PLANET Green Networking Switch- FNSW-1601 is an ideal solution in line with the energy-saving trend worldwide. The FNSW-1601 is a 16-port 10/100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet Switch upgraded from earlier version and brings both benefits of energy saving and high performance.

Brand-New Hardware DIP Switch for Functional Operation Modes Selection

The new hardware version of the FNSW-1601 offers “Standard”, “Flow Control Off”, “VLAN” and “Extend” modes.

The FNSW-1601 operates as a normal Fast Ethernet Switch in the “Standard” operation mode. The “VLAN” operation mode features port-based VLAN function that can help to prevent the connected clients’ multicast or broadcast storm from influencing each other.


In the “Extend” operation mode, the FNSW-1601 operates on a per-port basis at 10Mbps duplex operation but can transmit data over a distance of up to 200 meters overcoming the 100m limit on Ethernet UTP cable. With this brand-new feature, the FNSW-1601 provides an additional solution for distance extension, thus saving the cost of Ethernet cable installation. Its VLAN isolation function isolates each port so as to prevent broadcast storm and defend DHCP spoofing in the “Extend” operation mode.

Energy Saving

The FNSW-1601 incorporates advanced Green Networking technology:

  • Intelligent scales power based on cable length
    The intelligent scales power is an intelligent algorithm that actively determines the appropriate power level based on cable length. The FNSW-1601 would automatically detect the Ethernet cable length and adjust power usage accordingly. The connected device can substantially reduce overall power consumption, which makes a significant contribution to energy saving. The FNSW-1601 uses new engine that provides power savings of up to 22% but maintains high performance efficiently.

Power Savings

High Performance

The high performance throughput (filtering / forwarding rate: 14,880 packets per second at 10Mbps, 148,800pps and 100Mbps) helps the FNSW-1601 boost bandwidth, eliminates unnecessary traffic, and relieves congestion on your critical server path. The FNSW-1601 is the ideal choice to alleviate bottlenecks in client / server and peer-to-peer environments in a cost-effective way.

Plug and Play

The FNSW-1601 provides users with high-speed network connections. With its auto-negotiation capability, all the RJ45/STP ports of the FNSW-1601 can be configured to speeds of 10/20Mbps or 100/200Mbps automatically. What’s more, the MDI/ MDIX auto-detection is for easy, plug and play connection, regardless of the cabling type, straight-through or crossover.
