Unmanaged industrial or hardened switches allow for a user to create a basic “plug-and-play” installation in environments that may have extreme temperatures, harsh, or other adverse conditions. With an unmanaged industrial switch, setup time is greatly reduced due to the simplistic nature of the devices. The fixed configuration provided by these switches is great for smaller networks where traffic is not required to be monitored or controlled such as a single home, a small business network, a single office etc. Since there is no ability to control the ports on these devices, unmanaged switches use auto-negotiated ports to determine data rate/network speed as well as whether to use full or half duplex modes. Unmanaged industrial switches provide you with a cost-effective solution while still allowing your fiber and Ethernet devices to communicate with each other seamlessly in less than ideal environmental conditions.
