We’re proud to announce a second-generation version of our ground-breaking S100 data switch, the S100/2.
As part of our continual improvement programme, the new S100/2 offers upgrades in two key areas and now includes higher-bandwidth connectivity, plus a new and improved internal power supply.
The new model includes trickle-down technology and design ideas from our flagship S10 switch, and just like our digital music libraries, the S100/2 is also hand-made in Japan.
When conceptualising the second-generation version, our engineers identified the increasing demands placed on networks and data switches in the home where, in addition to audio devices, TVs, set-top boxes and games consoles etc. all put demands on bandwidth.
The S100/2 now benefits from an upgrade to six one-gigabit Ethernet ports, coupled with two 100 megabit Ethernet ports for audio. The configuration retains the speed-mix advantages of the original and now offers greater speeds to bandwidth-hungry devices while retaining dedicated audio ports.
Internally, the S100/2 gains an improved power circuit board with a carefully selected AC adapter, plus the S100/2 also retains the SFP (small form factor pluggable) connections seen in the original S100, which allow upgrades to optical fibre connections with compatible devices
Finally, we’ve also added an LED indicator on/off button to switch off the ‘flash’ effect as data is being transferred. Melco dealers are standing by to ship S100/2s and arrange demonstrations. Find your local dealer here.
