The 24 ports are uniquely rear-mounted for convenient use in a typical AV equipment rack, company officials said. Full IEEE 802.3af PoE is furnished simultaneously, eliminating the need for additional power supplies and wiring while providing a centralized power source for numerous PoE devices, such as the Crestron TPMC-4SM touch panel, MPC-M5 controller, and CEN-IDOCV interface for Apple iPod. Dual gigabit Ethernet uplink/stacking ports ensure ample bandwidth for the 24 high-speed 10/100 Base-T ports.

"Crestron continues to maximize system performance and simplify installation with products that capitalize on the high-speed of Ethernet and the convenience of PoE," said Vincent Bruno, Crestron director of marketing, in a statement. "When we pioneered the use of Ethernet for control system networking, we defined a whole new standard for systems integration and control."

A front panel management port enables mirroring of any rear port for easy monitoring and troubleshooting. Customizable front panel labeling makes it easy to designate each port with clear, descriptive names.
