NETGEAR 8 Port 10/100 Switch helps to supply power to wireless access points and surveillance cameras over Cat-5 cabling. It has IEEE 802.3af power on up to 4 ports and 8-10/100 Mbps Ports with AutoUplink.
The ProSafe FS108P provides power and data from a single point, using Power over Ethernet (PoE) over a single Cat-5 cable. The eight Fast Ethernet ports can be used for any 10/100 Mbps link and four of these ports can supply industry-standard IEEE 802.3af power. It has advanced auto-sensing algorithm which gives power only to 802.3af end devices, so you donâ€™t need to worry about damaging proprietary PoE or non-PoE equipment. Also, it stops the power when PoE devices are disconnected. Easy and reliable, the ProSafe FS108P automatically determines PoE requirements, speed, duplex, and cable type using Auto Uplink.
ProSafe FS108P delivers PoE to any small business network that wants to streamline the installation of wireless access points and IP-based surveillance cameras. These devices are optimally fitted on a ceiling or high on a wall, away from most electrical outlets. PoE eliminates the requirement for a keen electrical outlet to power these devices. This allows for flexibility in situating devices where AC power is difficult to access and lowers installation costs. Compact and flexible, the ProSafe FS108P is perfect for small business networks that need to reasonably use PoE to deploy wireless access points and IP-based network surveillance cameras.
You can choose to plug in up to eight Ethernet or Fast Ethernet devices and mix in up to four 802.3af IP-based devices like wireless access points or IP-based network surveillance cameras. Place these 802.3af-compliant devices where they belong â€“ high up on walls and ceiling for maximum coverage â€“ or anywhere else you need them. Power and data are carried over standard Cat 5 cabling.
The standards-based ProSafe FS108P senses and adjusts for network speed and cabling type automatically, for easy integration into your existing 10/100 Ethernet network. For PoE, the switch automatically detects 802.3af-compliant devices, and supplies power as needed. Front panel LEDs keep you informed of switch and PoE status. ProSafe FS108P is engineered for compact convenience. It features a 9-inch, durable metalcase that is easily placed on your desktop or a wall, using the included mounting hardware. The fan-less design quietly integrates with your small office environment.
With data switching and Power over Ethernet integrated into one unit, the FS108P saves space, reduces cables and eradicates the requirement for dedicated electrical outlets, lowering installation costs, simplifying installation of PoE-capable devices, and avoiding the need for electricians or extension cords.
