The DGS-1008MP 8-Port PoE Gigabit Desktop Switch is an ideal solution for small to medium businesses looking to easily connect and supply power to Power over Ethernet (PoE) devices such as wireless access points, network cameras, and IP phones while adding more Ethernet devices like computers, printers as well as network attached storage onto a network. Built with small business and enterprise users in mind, this rack mountable PoE switch operates quietly, making it ideal for use in virtually any room or office.
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 Max PoE Switch is the ideal choice for adding PoE devices to a small to medium business network.
Compact and Silent Design
The DGS-1008MP has a compact 11” design, so that it can be deployed in any easily accessible location on the work floor, allowing you to power a set of PoE-powered devices while avoiding additional cable clutter. Alternatively, the standardized 1U-sized housing means the switch can also be mounted in a standard 19” rack and be integrated in the server infrastructure. The DGS-1008MP is furthermore built around a fanless design. This makes the switch suitable to be used closer to, or in populated areas where it works efficiently while guaranteeing a quiet working environment.
D-Link Green 3.0 Technology
DGS-1008MP switches feature both D-Link Green 3.0 Technology and IEEE802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) to cut operating costs without sacrificing operational performance or functionality. With D-Link Green technology, the switches constantly monitor the link status and network utilisation of every port. The switches also automatically detect cable length and can reduce transmission power usage for shorter cables. By pairing EEE capable devices with DGS-1008MP switches organizations can drastically reduce power consumption by automatically putting ports into a sleep mode when not being used.
