The Cisco Systems-owned network hardware provider Linksys last week announced the release of eight new “smart switches,” for use in both business and home networking settings. The switches, Linksys said in a statement, are aimed at “mall environments, corporate workgroups or network edge applications requiring simple Web management, network security and easy installation.”
Called the Linksys Business Series Smart Ethernet Switches, the switches offer such features as many-in-one port mirroring, cable analysis, rate limiting, and various security settings.
The switches range in price from $199.99 to $514.99. For more information on the switches, visit www.linksys.com
