The patent pending 5-port 10/100 Ethernet Switch (DCSW-1005PT) is another innovation by Dualcomm that offers unique and low cost solution for any network applications where port-mirroring is required. Port-mirroring used to be a feature found in many more expensive managed switches requiring software configurations, but DCSW-1005PT makes it plug and play without any software manipulations at a much lower price point. DCSW-1005PT supports PoE inline pass-through so that it can be used to work with a PoE powered device such as an PoE powered IP phone. DCSW-1005PT is also engineered with a efficient power circuitry capable of receiving power on a USB port and to operate reliably with up to five Ethernet connections at full speeds. With DCSW-1005PT, an otherwise inconvenient AC/DC power adapter becomes not necessary! For home or small business users, DCSW-1005PT can be best used for a cost-effective packet sniffing setup to record VoIP calls. For IT professionals, DCSW-1005PT is surely a favorite gadget that soon will be found in their tool bags!
