The RUGGEDCOM RSG2300/RSG2300P is a utility-grade, fully managed, 32-Port Managed Ethernet Switch with 4 Modular Gigabit Uplink Ports. The RSG2300's modular flexibility offers 10BaseFL /100BaseFX /1000BaseX fiber and 10/100/1000BaseTX copper port combinations.


The RUGGEDCOM RSG2300 is a utility-grade, fully managed, 32-Port managed Ethernet switch with 4 modular gigabit uplink ports. With its modular flexibility, the RSG2300 offers 10BaseFL /100BaseFX /1000BaseX fiber and 10/100/1000BaseTX copper port combinations. Optional front or rear mount connectors make the RSG2300 highly versatile and suitable for any application. It can support multiple fiber connectors (ST, MTRJ, LC, SC) without loss of port density.


The RUGGEDCOM RSG2300P is a utility-grade, fully managed, power-over-Ethernet (PoE) enabled, modular Ethernet switch. It is specifically designed to operate reliably in electrically harsh and climatically demanding utility substation and industrial environments. The RSG2300P comes standard with 2 10/100BaseTX 802.3af (PoE) compliant Ethernet ports, with the option to add an additional 2 PoE ports. It offers modular flexibility for up to 6 additional Ethernet ports, including 10BaseFL/100BaseFX/1000BaseX fiber and 10/100/1000BaseTX copper port combinations. The highly versatile RSG2300P can support multiple fiber types and connectors (ST, MTRJ, LC, SC) without loss of port density. It is an ideal solution to power and connect several Ethernet devices (e.g. IP phones, video cameras and wireless access points) where AC power is not available or cost-prohibitive to provide locally.
