Conclusion

Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch network switch, networking, Rosewill 1

 

On the Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch box, the words Enterprise Networking Solution appears. However, I doubt that I would put a non-managed switch in an enterprise environment.

In the testing, I decided to pit the Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch against a small business class switch as well as an enterprise class switch for throughput testing only. From a purely throughput stand point, the Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch does fine. An enterprise networking solution is a bit of a stretch for the Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch however, for a small office or home environment is well suited to handle any task.

With Jumbo Frames turned off the Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch easily kept up with both of the Cisco switches and averaged over the standard Ethernet frame speeds of 850 Mbp/s transfer rate. Considering the Cisco SG-300 is currently priced at $200.00 and the Cisco Catalyst 2960G can be had for 615.00-730.00. With Jumbo Frames on the Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch was  able to keep up with the more expensive Cisco switches.

I thought the Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch was going to be outclassed by the more expensive Cisco gear, but that clearly is not the case.  The Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch is a very capable switch. It was able to handle network traffic with ease and easily kept pace with more expensive managed switches. From a POE stand point it was able to run both of my Cisco WAP321 Wireless Access points (POE+) with no noticeable issues as well as a couple of older POE IP cameras (POE). Currently the Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch can be had for $99.99. I would, without hesitation, recommend the Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch for any small network.
