L-Com Gigabit Ethernet Desktop Switches

Introduction

L-Com isn’t a company you hear much about in the tech industry circles; indeed their primary market has been industrial applications, where durability is just as important as performance. Today we’ll be taking a look at a pair of Gigabit Ethernet switches from L-Com, the LC-SW805G 5 port switch and the LC-SW808G 8 port switch. They’re not designed to withstand triple digit temperatures and dusty environments clogged with industrial chemicals, but that same mindset of durability obtains here as well.

A Closer Look

The packaging here is purely functional; brown cardboard with black ink. Inside, more cardboard is used to wedge the switch in place, with an anti-static bag protecting the unit itself. Aside from a thin manual, the only included accessory is the AC adapter.

The front of both units is simple, status LEDs arranged in two neat rows. Each port has two status lights associated with it: link/activity and gigabit link. If you see both lights lit, that port is talking to the switch at 1000 Mbit and life is good. If you only see the top light lit, it’s talking at 10/100 Mbit.

Both units are very similar from the sides; the space is entirely given over to ventilation.

On the back, we see the ports lined up in a row, numbered, with the AC adapter plug alongside.
