10G Micro Switch


The Original - high performance for efficient networks

25 years after the first FTTO Switch, MICROSENS sets new standards in performance and applications for FTTO networks with the seventh hardware generation, the 7-port 10G Micro Switch, PoE++.


Parallel to the current Gigabit switch, Generation 7 also retains the M45 form factor introduced by MICROSENS in 2003, which is now the market standard.

Modern hardware designed for maximum performance and efficiency makes it possible to connect the workplace with 10G in proven MICROSENS quality.

10G uplinks for higher performance and flexibility

10G at the workplace not only provides FTTO users with more distributed performance, it also opens up new, versatile possibilities for the planning and expansion of FTTO networks.

Redundancy and expansion!

The connection of the micro switch to two separate central units with 10G each and the cascading of several switches to a redundant and cable-optimized ring structure are just two examples of the gain in flexibility combined with a high-performance network structure.


Modern standards in the building - Wi-Fi 6

The trend towards IoT, which is accompanied by a large number of new and mostly Wi-Fi connected network participants, requires high-performance Wi-Fi coverage. The access-protected downlink port of the Micro Switch delivers multi Gigabit performance and PoE++ to connect the decentralized Wi-Fi network IEEE802.3bz-compliant with 2.5G or 5G. At the same time, it supplies the access point with power. The existing, decentralized FTTO infrastructure automatically distributes multi gigabit ports in the building, which means that a high-performance network infrastructure for a comprehensive and optimally covered Wi-Fi network is also available.

Separate cabling for Wi-Fi networks? No more with FTTO and the new 10G Micro Switch!
