HIGH POWER POE
Buffalo's BS-GS2008P Gigabit Green Ethernet High Power PoE Switches offers network design flexibility without the reliance of AC power through its high power PoE feature. Many devices including routers, surveillance cameras and home automation equipment can be powered through PoE which allows you to place these devices anywhere in your home or office, regardless of whether there is an AC outlet available. In addition, the fact that PoE eliminates additional AC power cables reduces clutter and gives your home or office a cleaner appearance.
FAST AND EASY SET UP
Easy to read LED indicators for each port clearly and quickly communicate which ports have active connections as well as which ports have gigabit speed devices attached. Auto-MDIX provides fast plug and play setup, eliminating the need for a crossover cable while auto-negotiation detects the link speed of the attached device and adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance, making the switch backwards compatible with older network devices.
SAVE ENERGY AND OPERATIONAL EXPENSES
802.3az Green Ethernet technology monitors the link status of each port and only provides power to those that have a connected device that is powered on and puts transmitters into sleep mode when no information is being sent or received. In addition, the length of cable connected to each port is detected and the amount of power supplied is adjusted accordingly. All of these features add up to energy savings of up to 79% over traditional switches.
DETECT NETWORK DISRUPTIONS
Buffalo's BS-GS2008P Gigabit Green Ethernet PoE Switches come with loop prevention which shuts down the port(s) where a network loop is detected.
EASILY EXTEND YOUR HOME NETWORK
