8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch: The TP-Link 8-Port Gigabit
Desktop Switch (TL-SG1008D) provides you an easy way to make the transition to
Gigabit Ethernet. Increase the speed of your network server and backbone
connections, or make Gigabit to the desktop a reality. Moreover, TL-SG1008D
adopts lower power consumption design. With the innovative energy-efficient
technology, the TL-SG1008D can save up to 80% of the power consumption, making
it an eco-friendly solution for your home or office network.
8 Gigabit Ports: Featuring eight Gigabit ports (10/100/1000Mbps),
TL-SG1008D greatly expands your network capacity, enabling instant large files
transferring. So users in the home, office, workgroup, or creative production
environment can now move large, bandwidth-intensive files faster. Transfer
graphics, CGI, CAD, or multimedia files across the network instantly. Supports
IEEE 802.3i/802.3u/ 802.3ab/802.3x.
QoS (Quality of Service) Traffic Prioritization: QoS
(Quality of Service) prioritizes traffic to particular devices or activities &
maintain mission-critical data throughput regardless of network congestion.
Energy-Efficient Design: This new generation 8-Port Gigabit Desktop
Switch (TL-SG1008D) features the latest innovative energy-efficient technologies
that can greatly expand your network capacity with much less power. It
automatically adjusts power consumption according to the link status and cable
length to limit the carbon footprint of your network.
- Power down Idle Ports: When a computer or network equipment is
off, the corresponding port of a traditional switch will continue to consume
considerable amounts of power. The TL-SG1008D can automatically detect the
link status of each port and reduce the power consumption of ports that are
idle, resulting in up to an 80% reduction in power use.
- Power Budget According to Cable Length: Ideally, shorter cable
would use less power because of less power degradation over their length;
this is not the case with most devices as they will use the same amount of
power across the cable regardless of the length.
Auto-Sensing: The auto features of this gigabit switch make
installation plug-and-play and hassle-free. No configuring is required. Auto
MDI/MDIX eliminate the need for crossover cables. Auto-negotiation on each port
senses the link speed of a network device (either 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps) and
intelligently adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance.
Mounting Options: The TP-Link 8-Port Gigabit
Desktop Switch can simply be placed horizontally on a desk, shelf, or table. It
can also be mounted vertically on a wall using the integrated keyhole slots
(mounting screws sold separately).
Power Requirements: The TL-SG1008D comes with an AC power adapter
which plugs into the back of the switch and into an AC wall outlet or surge
protector (sold separately).
