More details on the NETGEAR GS308PP
SOHO Ethernet Switch: The NETGEAR SOHO Ethernet Unmanaged Switch (GS308PP) provide easy and affordable network connectivity to small offices and home/offices. It is easy to use, reliable, and rugged with metal enclosures. Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) support is also available for supplying both power and data across a single CAT-5 ethernet cable to devices such as IP security cameras, VoIP phones, wireless access points, etc. With the SOHO Ethernet Switch you can quickly and easily expand your network connections to multiple devices, with no configuration required.
8 Gigabit Ports: The NETGEAR GS308PP Switch is outfitted with 8 Gigabit Ethernet (RJ45) ports. It offers auto-negotiation for automatic connection at the highest common speed between switch and an end device, while support for auto-MDI/MDIX eliminates the need for crossover cables. Its non-blocking switching architecture delivers maximum throughput at wire speed. Standards-based technology ensures interoperability with any standards-based devices in the existing network.
PoE+ (Power-Over-Ethernet): The GS308PP provides PoE+ or PoE power on ports 1-8 and up to 30W to each port, with a PoE power budget of 83W across all active PoE ports. You can increase the PoE power budget by replacing the included 90W AC power adapter with a 130W adapter (sold separately - see Accessories Tab) for 123W PoE power budget. Power-Over-Ethernet can be used for IP cameras, VoIP/Internet-based phones, wireless access points, and other PoE compatible devices. NETGEAR's unique PoE power autobalance and allocation technology automatically balances the PoE power based on the device needs independent of PoE class detected.
- If the power requirements for the attached powered devices (PDs) exceed the total power budget of the switch, the PD on the highest-numbered port is disabled to make sure that the PDs connected to the higher-priority, lower numbered ports are supported first.
- Just because a PD is listed as an 802.3at PoE powered device does not necessarily mean that it requires the maximum power limit of the specification. Many PDs require less power, potentially allowing more PoE ports to be active simultaneously.
- The GS308PP is not compatible with NETGEAR's 200W external AC power adapter.
NETGEAR Insight App: The NETGEAR Insight App (for Apple iOS 9.0+ and Android OS 4.3+) lets you instantly discover, configure, and continuously monitor and manage your network of select NETGEAR Wi-Fi access points, switches and storage devices from your compatible smartphone or tablet device. NETGEAR Insight enables multi-device, multi-network configuration of your NETGEAR Insight Managed switches, wireless access points, and network storage devices either locally or remotely. It provides network management, monitoring and service deployment across multiple remote and local sites for the easiest and most user-friendly networking experience. You can choose between two NETGEAR Insight subscription plans - Insight Basic or Insight Premium.

With a larger screen real estate, users will have a single-pane view of all their devices and their locations in an intuitive interface. The Insight Cloud portal is only available with the Insight Premium offer.
AC Power Adapter: The included AC power adapter plugs into the back of the Ethernet Switch and into an AC power outlet or surge protector (sold separately).
LED Indicators: When you connect the included external AC power adapter to the NETGEAR SOHO Ethernet Unmanaged Switch and plug it into an electrical outlet, its front-panel LEDs will indicate the status.
Mounting Options: The NETGEAR SOHO Ethernet Unmanaged Switch (GS308PP) supports desktop, wall-mount, and rack-mount placement.
