ASUSTOR Inc. is pleased to introduce the Switch-n-Stor, its first five-port network switch. In addition to its trendy enthusiast design, the Switch-n-Stor employs Realtek 2.5 GbE controllers. The Switch-n-Stor is efficient and works well with any ASUSTOR NAS or computer that supports 2.5 GbE. Is your PC or NAS not compatible with 2.5-Gigabit Ethernet? Purchase an AS-U2.5G2 and plug it into a USB 3.2 port found on a NAS to easily upgrade a device to 2.5-Gigabit Ethernet and experience more than double the speed. The Switch-n-Stor is backwards compatible with Gigabit and 100-Megabit speeds, ensuring that it is compatible with almost any device, albeit at lower speeds, ensuring maximum seamlessness.

The Switch-n-Stor chassis design is made of metal. With both heat dissipation and a beautiful aesthetic, the Switch-n-Stor dissipates heat and does so while looking good. Take advantage of five 2.5-Gigabit Ethernet ports, each providing more than double the performance of traditional Gigabit Ethernet. The ASUSTOR Switch-n-Stor supports backwards compatibility, ensuring that almost any device will plug in seamlessly while Cat5e cables work flawlessly, saving you from unnecessary cable replacements.

The lightweight design of Switch-n-Stor weighs only 350 g, which is currently among the lightest five port 2.5 GbE unmanaged switch. This makes it convenient to place almost anywhere, especially on walls. The fanless design ensures total silence while effectively dissipating heat from the efficient Realtek controllers through the case and internal heatsinks to maintain optimal performance at all times.
