Power over Ethernet
The DGS-1008MP features 8 x 10/100/1000BASE-T ports that support the IEEE 802.3at PoE+protocol. Each of the 8 PoE+ ports can supply up to 30 watts with a total PoE power budget of 140 watts, allowing users to attach an IEEE 802.3at-compliant device to the DGS-1008MP without requiring additional power. PoE is especially suitable for devices that are far from power outlets or when you want to minimise the clutter of extra cables.
No configuration is required and installation is quick and easy. Support for Auto MDI/MDI-X on all ports eliminates the need for crossover cables when connecting to another switch. AutoNegotiation on each port senses the link speed of a network device (10, 100 or 1000 Mbps)and intelligently adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance. The switch has been designed without fans ensuring silent operation wherever it is installed. With wire-speed filtering and store-and-forward switching, the DGS-1008MP maximises network performance while minimising the transmission of bad network packets. Combining the convenience of PoE, superior performance and ease of use, the 8-Port Desktop Gigabit PoE Switch is the ideal choice for adding PoE devices to a small to medium business network.
