The DGS-1008P features Auto-MDI/MDI-X support on all ports which removes the need for crossover cables when connecting to another switch or hub. Auto-negotiation on each port intelligently adjusts the port speed for optimal compatibility with the connected device. With wire-speed filtering and store-and-forward switching, the DGS-1008P maximizes network performance while minimizing the transmission of bad network packets.
The DGS-1008P has a compact design, meaning it can be placed virtually anywhere, including small offices and work spaces where space is at a premium. The desktop form-factor provides everything you need to set up a new network, or expand an existing network by connecting it to other switches. The fanless design ensures silent operation, making the switch suitable for office spaces, work floors, and noise-sensitive areas such as meeting rooms.
The DGS-1008P features four 10/100/1000BASE-T ports that support the IEEE 802.3af and IEEE 802.3at PoE protocols, enabling these ports to supply up to 30 W of power to connected devices for a total PoE power budget of 68 W. This allows compatible devices to be connected without requiring an additional power supply, saving on cabling and allowing devices to be installed in locations without immediate access to power outlets.
The DGS-1008P features green technology, including IEEE 802.3az Energy-efficient Ethernet (EEE), link status detection, and cable length detection. Energy-efficient Ethernet dynamically reduces the power consumption of the switch when network utilization is low, reducing the cost of ownership during periods of inactivity. Link status detection automatically powers down ports when there is no link detected, saving power when the connected device has been shut down or disconnected. Cable length detection automatically adjusts the power output of the port based on the length of the cable, reducing the power requirements of the switch to only what is necessary for the installation.
