The D-Link DGS-1008MP 8-Port Desktop Gigabit Max PoE Switch is an ideal solution for small offices and enterprise environments looking to expand the network with a set of Power over Ethernet devices such as wireless access points, IP cameras, and IP phones. Built with small business and enterprise users in mind, the D-Link DGS-1008MP is a high-speed, flexible switch that features a fan less, quiet design so it can be conveniently placed anywhere in a working environment.
The D-Link DGS-1008MP features eight 10/100/1000BASE-T ports that support the IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) standard. Each of the eight PoE ports can supply up to 30 W, with a total combined PoE budget of 125 W, allowing users to power up to eight IEEE 802.3at-compliant devices without requiring an additional power supply. This allows devices to be installed in locations without their own power outlet, saving on installation costs and reducing the time it takes to install new devices.
The D-Link DGS-1008MP is a plug-and-play device, meaning installation is quick and easy and requires no additional configuration. Support for Auto MDI/MDI-X on all ports eliminates the need for crossover cables when connecting to another switch or hub. Auto-Negotiation on each port senses the link speed of a network device (either 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps) and intelligently adjusts for optimal compatibility and performance. With store-and-forward switching, the D-Link DGS-1008MP also maximises network performance while minimising packet loss during data transmission. Combining the convenience of PoE, superior performance, and ease of use, the D-Link DGS-1008MP is the ideal choice for flexibly expanding your network while remaining cost efficient.
The D-Link DGS-1008MP has a compact 11” design, so that it can be deployed in any accessible location on the work floor, allowing you to power a set of PoE-powered devices while avoiding additional cable clutter. Alternatively, the standardised 1U-sized housing means the switch can also be mounted in a standard 19” rack and be integrated into the server infrastructure. The D-Link DGS-1008MP is furthermore built around a fan less 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
The D-Link DGS-1008MP supports IEEE 802.3az Energy-Efficient Ethernet (EEE), reducing the power consumption of the switch when network utilisation is low and minimising operating costs during periods of inactivity. By using EEE-compliant devices with the D-Link DGS-1008MP, organisations can noticeably reduce power consumption by having the switch automatically put ports into sleep mode when they are not being used.
