N-way

An Ethernet switch capability that automatically detects the speed and type of transmission on each port and adjusts the switch to accommodate it (10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps; half or full duplex). All modern Ethernet switches are N-way. N-way functionality was first developed by National Semiconductor in 1994.
