Linksys Business LGS308MP PoE+ Smart 8 Port Gigabit Network Switch (130W)

Designed for business-class management, security, speed, and quality of service, Linksys Smart PoE+ Gigabit Switches provide a network your business can grow on.

Designed for business-class management, security, speed, and quality of service, with 8 PoE+ gigabit ethernet ports.

• Integrated Power Over Ethernet Plus (130W)

• Easy Configuration and Management

• Advanced Network Security

• Meets EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) 802.3az standard

Remotely manage your access points through the cloud Built to deliver business-class performance, the Linksys Business LGS308MP PoE+ Smart 8-Port Gigabit Network Switch offers the efficiency, security, and scalability needed to support your growing business. This high-powered network switch dramatically streamlines installation of peripheral devices and eliminates the need for dedicated electrical wiring thanks to Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+), which allows network cables to transfer power. With 130 total watts dedicated to PoE+, the smart network switch delivers substantially more power than ordinary PoE switches-making it ideal for supporting expansive surveillance cameras, door access control systems, ProAV systems, access points, video VoIP phones, and other demanding applications.

An ideal choice for demanding LAN environments, the 8-port gigabit switch intelligently manages traffic to ensure peak efficiency and performance. Flexible network expansion options and advanced security features make this switch a suitable solution for business-class applications.

Facilitates quick-and-easy network expansion Ideal for complex network environments that demand multiple switches, Linksys gigabit switches are designed to scale alongside the needs of your growing workforce. They help ensure smooth and seamless network expansion by leveraging IEEE802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol, which prevents formation of loops that can be deadly to your network. Multiple high-bandwidth trunks carry data smoothly between the switches, helping alleviate congestion and improve availability. And thanks to Storm Control, the switches also help minimize loss of service by monitoring and suppressing traffic levels.

Quality of service (QOS) for optimal performance Equipped with numerous QoS features, the LGS326MP switch intelligently manages traffic to help deliver the best user experience possible. The switch leverages IGMP snooping to limit IP multicast traffic to ports that request it, enabling the rest of the network to operate at peak efficiency. This allows users to engage in video streaming, VoIP calls, high-volume file uploads, and other bandwidth-intensive tasks without worry of slowing down the network.

Keeps network protected wiith advanced security The LGS308MP switch safeguards your network's mission-critical data from unauthorized access using port authentication and MAC-based port security that require clients to authenticate themselves before any data is transferred. DHCP snooping filters out traffic from untrusted sources, and IP-MAC binding functions help promote overall network integrity to protect against attacks.

How does it work? Linksys PoE+ switches can power PoE+ enabled devices such as surveillance cameras, access points, door access control systems, and ProAV systems. This will eliminate the need for additional power cables and outlets, making installation simpler and less expensive.

Quality of Service (QoS) Numerous QoS features ensure that traffic is prioritized properly to deliver the best possible user experience for real-time applications like voice and video along with bandwidthintensive graphic/video file uploads and downloads. IGMP snooping limits IP multicast traffic to the ports that requested it, enabling the rest of the network to operate at peak efficiency.

Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) Linksys smart switches support the latest 802.3at (PoE+) standards and provide up to double the power budget per Gigabit Ethernet port while offering 802.3af (PoE) backwardcompatibility. Power over Ethernet reduces electrical wiring costs, simplifies installation, and supports network devices such as IP cameras and wireless access points in optimal indoor and outdoor locations.

Network Security Unauthorized access to the network and mission-critical data is a constant concern. Linksys smart switches help secure networks through port authentication and MAC-based port security, requiring clients to authenticate themselves before any data is passed. Advanced DHCP snooping and IP-MAC binding functions ensure network integrity and help prevent network attacks.

Network Expansion Linksys smart switches include features for quickly expanding and growing your network. Multiple high-bandwidth trunks between switches enhance availability and redundancy. Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) and Storm Control features help control planned or inadvertent cable loops, so you can confidently build a mesh of switches and quickly expand your network to support your growing workforce.
