To switch manually, simply depress the front panel pushbutton and the switch will change to the new selected position as indicated by the front panel LED's. Remote switching of the unit is done through an RS-232 (DB-9) serial port located on the rear of the QuickSwitch® 4187, which may be connected to any standard RS-232 port on a computer. The computer, once connected to the remote port, may use any common terminal emulation software.
Also called "Fast Ethernet", is a 100 Mbps version of Ethernet (IEEE 802.3u standard). 100BaseFX transmits at 100 Mbps rather than 10 Mbps. Like regular Ethernet, Fast Ethernet is a shared media LAN. All modes share the 100 Mbps bandwidth. To guarantee proper signal timing, a 100BaseFX link cannot exceed 1312 feet (400 meters) in length.
