Gigabit Connection for Small Business
The D-Link® 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet PoE Switch (DGS-1008P) enables office users the ability to easily connect and supply power to Power over Ethernet (PoE) devices such as IP cameras, IP phones, and wireless access points (APs) to a network. The 8 Gigabit ports provide connectivity for devices and applications that require high speed network access and reduce bottlenecks that can interrupt communication. The DGS-1008P also provides the opportunity to add additional Ethernet devices like computers, printers, and Network Attached Storage (NAS) onto a network. This compact PoE switch operates quietly, making it ideal for use in virtually any room or office.
Power Over Ethernet (PoE)
The first four ports of the DGS-1008P supports the IEEE 802.3af PoE protocol. Each of these four ports can supply up to 15.4 watts for a total PoE budget of 52 watts, allowing users to attach an IEEE 802.3af compliant device to the DGS-1008P that requires no additional power. Use PoE for applications that are far from power outlets or when you want to minimize the clutter of extra cables.
Auto MDI/MDIX Crossover
All ports support automatic MDI/MDIX crossover, eliminating the need for crossover cables or uplink ports. Each port can be plugged directly to a server, hub, router, or switch using regular straight-through twisted-pair Ethernet cables.
Easy Installation, no Additional Setup
The DGS-1008P 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch is plug-and-play and requires no additional configuration. Its compact size and fan-less design allow for installation anywhere data or power is required. In addition, the switch supports IEEE 802.1p QoS, which automatically classifies and prioritizes compliant device traffic to ensure time sensitive data such as VoIP is forwarded without delay.
The DGS-1008P 8-Port Gigabit Switch makes use of D-Link Green™ eco-friendly technology, providing energy savings, reduced power consumption, and a longer product life without sacrificing operational performance or functionality. This switch helps to conserve energy through methods such as Link Status and Cable Length Detection. The Link Status feature automatically powers down ports that have no link, allowing the switch to save substantial amounts of energy by cutting power for unused ports or ports connected to computers that have been shut down. It can also detect connected cable lengths, and adjust power usage accordingly, helping you save energy without affecting networking performance. In addition, the fan-less design extends the product’s life and also reduces noise.

The DGS-1008P PoE Gigabit Desktop switch provides a cost-effective way for office users to easily connect and supply power to Power over Ethernet (PoE) devices such as wireless access points (APs), IP cameras, and IP phones. It also provides the opportunity to add additional Ethernet devices like computers, printers, and Network Attached Storage (NAS) onto a network. This compact PoE switch is equipped with Gigabit ports for faster speeds and operates quietly, making it ideal for use in virtually any room or office. In addition, D-Link's Green Ethernet technology saves power when the switch is active and inactive.
Cable diagnostics function
Every time the DGS-1008P is powered up, it runs a micro diagnostics routine to check the integrity of the connected Ethernet cables. If a failure is detected, the switch will flag it by means of its front panel LEDs, making it easy for the user to troubleshoot wiring problems.
