Devices with an embedded Network Management Card 1 include (but are not limited to): Metered/Switched Rack PDUs (AP78XX, AP79XX), Rack Automatic Transfer Switches (AP77XX, Environmental Monitoring Units (AP9320, AP9340, Netbotz 200).
Many users are upgrading their networking environments and looking to understand if APC Network Management Card devices support 1GB/10GB Ethernet connections.
APC Network Management Card enabled devices support 10/100mbps Ethernet connections. Generally, 1GB Ethernet switches will support 100mbps (either by auto-negotation or configuration modification) but 10GB switches will not. Though, sometimes vendors offer special hardware modules that can provide 100mbps capability for 10GB Ethernet Switches.
It is suggested that users can check the documentation on their networking equipment to find out if the equipment is capable of 10mbps or more commonly 100mbps and how it can be accomplished. If it can, then APC Network Management Cards will operate normally in a 100mbps environment.
