The PathWay® Model 7321 12-Channel RJ45 Cat6 A/B/C/D Switch with Telnet, GUI, and Cascade Operation allows the user the capability of sharing a single port RJ45 interface device, connected to the "COMMON" port, among four other devices, connected to the A, B, C, and D ports, for each channel.  The Model 7321 is enclosed in a 3U, full rack size, all metal, black chassis designed to provide EMI/RFI shielding and fit in a standard 19" rack.

The unit can be operated by either the front panel pushbuttons or the 10/100Base-T LAN Ethernet Remote.  The unit also supports cascade operation, where other supported units can be connected and operated through a single remote port interface.  The state of the unit can be obtained from the front panel LED's or through the Remote Telnet Commands or Graphical User Interface. 

Ethernet Remote Port, I.P. Addressable, with GUI


To connect to the switch from a workstation or computer having access to the LAN that the switch's LAN port is connected to and simply launch a standard web browser and type in the appropriate IP address.  The Java Applet will be automatically uploaded from the switch upon connection.  The environment requirement for the GUI is Java 1.7 and above.

When a Model 7320 is selected from the cascade, a couple of things will be different.  First, since the Model 7320 is an 8-channel unit, channels 9-12 will be blocked off.  Second, polling, and status updates, and even sometimes commands for cascaded units will be a bit slower due to latency and cascade protocol timing requirements.  All other operations can be performed as normal. (See Figure 2)
