The D-Link DGS-1008P 8-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Desktop PoE Switch enables both home and office users to connect Power over Ethernet (PoE) devices such as wireless Access Points (APs), IP cameras, and IP phones to the network in remote locations without the need for external adapters. Built with home and small business users in mind, the DGS-1008P is compact and operates silently, making it ideal for virtually any room or office.
Power over Ethernet
The DGS-1008P features 4 10/100/1000BASE-T ports that support the IEEE 802.3af and IEEE 802.3at PoE protocols, supplying between 15 and 30 W on each PoE port and providing a total power budget of 68 W. This allows compatible devices to be connected without requiring an additional power supply, saving on cabling and allowing devices to be installed in locations without immediate access to power outlets. When a device is not PoE-compatible, the D-Link DPE-301GS PoE Splitter can turn any regular Ethernet port into a PoE-capable Ethernet port.
The DGS-1008P features plug-and-play installation with no additional configuration required.
Auto-MDI/MDI-X support on all ports removes the need for crossover cables when connecting to another switch or hub, and auto-negotiation on each port intelligently adjusts the port speed for optimal compatibility with the connected device. With wire-speed filtering and store-and-forward switching, the DGS-1008P maximizes network performance while minimizing the transmission of bad network packets.
The DGS-1008P features green technology, such as IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), link status detection, and cable length detection. Energy Efficient Ethernet reduces power consumption of the switch when network utilization is low, reducing the cost of ownership during periods of inactivity. Link status detection automatically powers down ports when there is no link detected, saving power when the connected device has been shut down or disconnected. Cable length detection automatically adjusts the power output of the port based on the length of the cable, reducing the power requirements of the switch to only what is necessary for the installation.
Compact and Silent
The DGS-1008P has a compact design, meaning that it can be placed in almost any convenient location. This includes small offices and work spaces where space is at a premium. The desktop form factor provides everything you need to set up a new network, or expand an existing network by connecting it to other switches. The fanless design ensures silent operation, making the switch suitable for office spaces, work floors, and areas which are sensitive to noise, such as meeting rooms.
