Historically, ethernet switches come in fixed configurations (16-port, 48-port, etc). However as AV and IT collide, a new class of switch has come to market. The modular ethernet switch combines the configurability of a matrix switch with the power and scalability of ethernet to allow systems more custom-tailored to each end users' needs. Learn about this new class of ethernet switch. Understand how to configure and design AV systems with a flexible modular ethernet switch at the core. Compare and contrast the flexibility of a hybrid copper/fiber modular ethernet switch against the traditional configurable matrix.
