ClearBOX HS024P

Layer 2 Gigabit Aggregation PoE Switch

The ClearBOX HPS2400 is a Gigabit Ethernet access switch with 24 Gigabit PoE ports and four 10G uplink ports. The switch is an ideal Gigabit access switch for SMB, enterprise, and campus networks. The ClearBOX HPS2400 is packed with features that bring high availability, comprehensive security, robust multicast control, and advance QoS to the network edge, while maintaining simple management. The switch also supports the most advance IPv6 management, IPv6 security, and IPv6 multicast control in accordance with the growth of IPv6 deployment.

Performance and Scalability

The ClearBOX HPS2400 is a high-performance Gigabit Ethernet Layer 2+ managed switch with 128Gbps switching capacity. The switch delivers wire-speed switching performance on all Gigabit ports, taking full advantage of existing high-performance Gigabit CPEs, PCs, 11n/ac Wi-Fi APs etc, significantly improving the responsiveness of applications and file transfer times. The four built-in 10G SFP+ ports provide uplink flexibility, allowing the insertion of fiber or copper, Gigabit or 10G transceivers, to create up to 10 Gbps high-speed uplinks to servers or service provider, corporate, or campus networks.

PoE Features ClearSW 2400P can provide up to 30 Watts of power to attached devices, such as VoIP phones, wireless access points, surveillance cameras, etc, all over existing Cat. 5 cables. This eliminates the need for individual power sources for devices in the network, saving on costs for power cables and avoiding power outlet availability issues. If the power demand exceeds the switch’s maximum power budget, ports can be prioritize to receive power.
