Complies with IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE)
The GS-1008PH features 4 IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports, which supply up to 30 watts of power per port. It can convert standard 100-240V AC power into low-voltage DC, which runs over existing LAN cables to supply power to IEEE 802.3at compliant network accessories. The GS-1008PH also features PoE detection, to verify whether the connected device is IEEE 802.3at compliant; if it is not a PoE device, only data will be sent through the LAN cable. The GS-1008PH can connect with a variety of PoE products, including access points, IP cameras and IP phones. It is the best solution for when power outlets are difficult to install or the power outlets are too far from the device.
No Special Networking Cable Required
The standard Cat-5 Ethernet cable is used to link the GS-1008PH and the powered devices. This Ethernet cable can transmit both data and power. No separate power cable is needed for the powered devices, thus reducing installation time and costs.
Since the fan-less design ensures quiet operation in small office spaces, the GS-1008PH is an ideal solution for SOHO environments.
