8-Port PoE Plus Desktop Switch is designed to pass both data and electrical power to a number of Power over Ethernet-compatible devices via standard Cat5e or Cat6 network cables. Equipped with eight Fast Ethernet ports (all of which support 802.3at/af PoE/PoE Plus), this switch can power wireless LAN access points and bridges, VoIP phones, IP video cameras and more while delivering network speeds of up to 100 Mbps. 10/100 auto-sensing ports automatically detect optimal network speeds. Switch supports the IEEE 802.3at protocol and is designed to inject up to 30 watts of power per port. Total PoE budget for this switch is 40 watts. IEEE802.3af or IEEE802.3at-compliant devices attached to the switch require no additional power, eliminating the time and expense of electrical rewiring and minimizing the unsightly clutter caused by power supplies and adapters in awkward places. Switch supports up to 4096 MAC address entries and 160 kBytes buffer memory.
