RJ45 Ports

The RJ45 Ports or Ethernet Ports are the ports where you connect your networking devices such as computers, printers, VoIP phones, access points, and other devices. For the SF220 Series models, these ports provide speed from 10 to 100 Mbps. For the SG220 Series models, these ports provide 10 to 1000 Mbps speed.

Note: The availability of the LEDs on the RJ45 Ports described below depends on the exact model of your switch.

  • LINK/ACT LED — (Green) Located on the left of the port. The light goes steady when a link between the corresponding port and other device is detected. The light flashes when the port is passing traffic.
  • PoE LED (if present) — (Amber) Located on the right of the port. The light goes steady when power is being supplied to a device attached to the corresponding port.

  • 100M LED (if present) — (Green) Located on the right of the port. The light goes steady when another device is connected to the port, is powered on, and a 100 Mbps link is established between the devices. The light goes off when the connection speed is under 100 Mbps, or nothing is connected to the port.

  • GIGABIT LED (if present) — (Green) Located on the right of the port. The light goes steady when another device is connected to the port, is powered on, and a 1000 Mbps link is established between the devices. . The light goes off when the connection speed is under 1000 Mbps, or nothing is connected to the port.

SFP Ports

  • The Small Form-Pluggable (SFP) ports are connection points for modules so that the switch can link to other switches. These ports are also commonly referred to or known as mini Gigabit Interface Converter (miniGBIC) ports.
  • The SFP ports are compatible with Cisco modules MFEBX1, MFEFX1, MFELX1, MGBLH1, MGBLX1, MGBSX1, MGEBX1, and MGBT1.
  • The SFP port is shared with one other RJ-45 port, called a combo port. When the SFP port is active, the adjacent RJ-45 port is disabled.
  • The LEDs of the corresponding RJ-45 ports flash green to respond to the SFP port traffic.
