D-Link GES-1008P 8-Port 10/100 Desktop Switch with 4 PoE Ports
Gigabit Connection for Small Business
8-Port Gigabit Ethernet PoE Switch (DGS-1008P) enables office users the
ability to easily connect and supply power to Power over Ethernet (PoE)
devices such as IP cameras, IP phones, and wireless access points (APs)
to a network. The 8 Gigabit ports provide connectivity for devices and
applications that require high speed network access and reduce
bottlenecks that can interrupt communication. The DGS-1008P also
provides the opportunity to add additional Ethernet devices like
computers, printers, and Network Attached Storage (NAS) onto a network.
This compact PoE switch operates quietly, making it ideal for use in
virtually any room or office.
Power Over Ethernet (PoE)
The first four ports of the DGS-1008P supports the IEEE 802.3af PoE
protocol. Each of these four ports can supply up to 15.4 watts for a
total PoE budget of 52 watts, allowing users to attach an IEEE 802.3af
compliant device to the DGS-1008P that requires no additional power. Use
PoE for applications that are far from power outlets or when you want
to minimize the clutter of extra cables.
Auto MDI/MDIX Crossover
All ports support automatic MDI/MDIX crossover, eliminating the need
for crossover cables or uplink ports. Each port can be plugged directly
to a server, hub, router, or switch using regular straight-through
twisted-pair Ethernet cables.
Easy Installation, no Additional Setup
The DGS-1008P 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch is plug-and-play and
requires no additional configuration. Its compact size and fan-less
design allow for installation anywhere data or power is required. In
addition, the switch supports IEEE 802.1p QoS, which automatically
classifies and prioritizes compliant device traffic to ensure time
sensitive data such as VoIP is forwarded without delay.
The DGS-1008P 8-Port Gigabit Switch makes use of D-Link Green™
eco-friendly technology, providing energy savings, reduced power
consumption, and a longer product life without sacrificing operational
performance or functionality. This switch helps to conserve energy
through methods such as Link Status and Cable Length Detection. The Link
Status feature automatically powers down ports that have no link,
allowing the switch to save substantial amounts of energy by cutting
power for unused ports or ports connected to computers that have been
shut down. It can also detect connected cable lengths, and adjust power
usage accordingly, helping you save energy without affecting networking
performance. In addition, the fan-less design extends the product’s life
and also reduces noise.
