Pathway Connectivity 6742
VIA 12 LC Gigabit Ethernet Switch

OUR PART #  P6742

Pathway's VIA 12 LC (Model #6742) is a gigabit Ethernet switch designed specifically for lighting, sound and video signal routing in live entertainment applications. With built-in OpticalCON DUO fiber connectors for LC multimode fiber.

Unlike switches designed and marketed for office and communication applications, VIA ships as an unmanaged switch, pre-configured and optimized for entertainment network use, with twelve Ethercon® RJ45 copper ports and two OpticalCON® DUO locking connectors for multi-mode fiber. When needed, VLANs, EAPS and other Layer 2/3 management features are easily accessed and configured through the front panel interface and the Pathscape software suite.
