The device is a powerful, high-performance Gigabit Ethernet Switch, with all 8 ports capable of 10/100/1000Mbps auto-negotiation operation (NWay), which means the switch could automatically negotiate with the connected partners on the network speed and duplex mode. It is ideal for micro-segmenting large networks into smaller, connected subnets for improved performance, enabling the bandwidth demanding multimedia and imaging applications. Moreover, the 10/100/1000Mbps auto-sensing ability provides an easy way to migrate 10/100Mbps to 1000Mbps network with no pain.This switch supports PoE, which supplies power for connected devices via CAT 5 and above twisted cables. By integrating the data transmitting cable and power cord, it eliminates the effort constructing your network. You could easily connect a Wireless AP or a VoIP phone to this switch without looking outlets for them. Over current protection and circuit shorting protection are also supported to ensure the safety.The switch is plug-n-play without any software to configure and also fully compliant with all kinds of network protocols. Moreover, the rich diagnostic LED indicators on the front-panel provide the operating status of individual port and whole system.
