The DGS-1008P 8-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Desktop Switch with 4 PoE Ports enables office users to easily connect and supply power to Power over Ethernet (PoE) devices such as IP cameras, IP phones, and wireless access points (APs). 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 can also connect to 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 support the IEEE 802.3af PoE and 802.3at PoE+ protocols. Each of these four ports can supply up to 30 W for a total PoE budget of 68 W, allowing users to attach multiple IEEE 802.3af/at compliant devices to the DGS-1008P. 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 is plug-and-play and requires no additional configuration. Its compact size and fanless design allow for installation almost anywhere. 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 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 save energy without affecting networking performance. In addition, the fanless design extends the product’s life and also reduces noise.
