When it comes to Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) switch, D-Link DGS-1008MP is a gem. This compact-looking switch provides the PoE standard of 802.3af on all eight Gigabit Ethernet ports, with up to 30 W per port and is capable of delivering up to 140 W total PoE power. In other words, you can power devices such as access points, IP phones, and surveillance cameras by simply connecting them with an Ethernet cable, without the need for an additional power supply. The PoE power supply is especially suited to applications away from electrical outlets, or when you want to minimize cable clutter.
The auto-negotiation on each port in DGS-1008MP senses the speed of network devices (10, 100, or 1000 Mbps) and intelligently adjusts the compatibility and optimal performance. Further, the switch comes with fan-less feature, ensuring quiet operation wherever it is installed. Thanks to the filtration speed of the cable and at the store-and-forward switching, the DGS-1008MP maximizes network performance while minimizing the transmission of network packets ruined. DGS-1008MP comes equipped with two mounting brackets for rack installation.
D-Link DGS-1008MP 8-Port PoE desktop switch is an ideal solution for small offices and enterprise environments looking to expand the network with a set of PoE devices such as wireless access points, IP cameras, and IP phones. Additionally, DGS-1008MP is a plug-and-play device, meaning installation is quick and easy and requires no additional configuration.
DGS-1008MP supports both D-Link Green 3.0 technology and IEEE802.3az energy-efficient Ethernet (EEE). The switch constantly monitors the link status and puts the ports into sleeping mode when not in use. It also reduces transmission power usage for shorter distance cable connections. This in turn results in overall reduction of operating costs without sacrificing operational performance or functionality.
