Using 10/100-Base-T connection and either Telnet commands or a GUI, Electro Standards Laboratories’ Model 7339 Cat5e RJ45 A/B automatic fallback switch can share one workstation or device among two other devices connected to the A and B ports with remote access functionality. The unit offers the security of Automatic Fallback mode, monitoring data is active on port A and if activity is lost, the unit checks for data on port B and switches to position B in the presence of data. The component automatically returns to the position A. The user can also override automatic fallback operation from the front panel or GUI interface and force the unit to operate as an A/B switch.
