Buffalo's BS-GU Series of Multi-Port Gigabit Switches offer an easy and cost-effective way to extend your business network at gigabit speeds. Plug and play installation requires no additional software or configuration; each auto-sensing gigabit port automatically detects and configures the correct connection while optional jumbo frame support and full duplex operation provide maximum performance for a total switching capacity up to up to 48 Gbps on the BS-GU2024. Additionally, Buffalo's Multi-Port Gigabit Switches include power-savings features, like 802.3az Green Ethernet technology and an energy conservation feature that monitors the activity status of each port to reduce the total power consumed, therefore reducing related operational costs.
