FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — D-Link today announced two new unmanaged, rack-mountable, 10/100 PoE switches – the 8-port DES-1008P+ and the 16-port DES-1018MP. Both products are designed for demanding applications that require full PoE power (15.4 Watts) on all ports simultaneously, such as surveillance networks with power-hungry IP cameras, or wireless network infrastructures powering 802.11ac access points.

D-Link New PoE Switches

“Some IT professionals and system integrators prefer to future-proof their networks by deploying PoE switches with full power budgets,” said Steven Olen, director of product marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. “D-Link’s new DES-1008P+ and DES-1018MP give them that peace of mind. Even though they may not need all that power today, they can rest easy knowing it will be available when their networking requirements change tomorrow.”

The DES-1008P+ features eight 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet PoE+ ports, all of which support IEEE 802.3at (30W). With a total PoE power budget of 140 Watts, this switch can comfortably handle 15.4 Watts of PoE on all eight ports simultaneously, with extra power to spare. Its fanless design ensures quiet operation in all environments.

The DES-1018MP features 16 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet ports supporting IEEE 802.3af (15.4 Watts). Its 246.4 Watt power budget allows all 16 ports to drive 802.3af devices simultaneously, without concern of going over budget limits. The DES-1018MP also offers two Gigabit SFP/RJ45 combo uplink ports, which provide plenty of bandwidth back to the core of the network. A smart fan automatically adjusts itself to reduce power consumption and noise, and enhanced surge protection on all PoE ports protects the switch when feeding power to outdoor PoE devices.

Both models come in rugged metal housings that can be desktop or rack mounted, and both utilize an internal 100 – 240 VAC power supply. Like all D-Link® business class Ethernet switches, the DES-1008P+ and DES-1018MP offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty, furthering D-Link’s commitment to product quality and long-term customer confidence.

The new DES-1008P+ and DES-1018MP unmanaged 10/100 PoE switches are currently shipping through D-Link’s vast network of channel partners, including value-added resellers and distributors and online retailers. Detailed specifications are available online at

Many see home automation as the next big thing in the consumer electronics space and D-Link is keen to plant a flag in the emerging connected smart home with its new mydlink Home range of smart devices. The line includes five modules aimed at letting homeowners control technology around the home using a smartphone or tablet, be it from the comfort of the sofa or when out and about.


The heart of mydlink is made up of four modules designed to keep an eye (or sensor) on the home and react accordingly. According to D-Link, these made to be simple to set up with one-button installation using QR codes and a setup wizard.

The mydlink modules include:

  • Home Monitor HD: This is a one-megapixel camera with wireless AC connectivity, night-vision with infrared illumination and an integrated microphone. This has a fixed point of view and is intended for monitoring entrances, garages, and similar areas.
  • Home Monitor 360: A fully-featured pan and tilt camera, the Monitor 360 is for monitoring large areas or to reduce blind spots. It boasts real-time H.264 and MJPEG compression, night vision capability and an integrated microphone.
  • Home Smart Plug: This Wi-Fi-enabled module is a simple device that plugs into a wall outlet, with appliances then plugged into the module. This allows users to turn appliances on and off remotely, schedule automatic activation and deactivation, receive activity notifications and monitor energy use. The plug also has a overheating safety cutout.
  • Home Wi-Fi Motion Sensor: This motion sensor is a one-piece module that also plugs into a mains socket. It has one-button setup and can detect any movement within 8 m (26 ft).

These modules are controlled by the mydlink Home mobile app, available for Android or iOS, that allows direct control of the modules and can be used to set schedules to turn appliances on and off. It also sends email alerts when activity is detected by the modules, and can be used to pair the wireless modules so they can work together, such as the Motion Sensor pairing wirelessly with a Smart Plug connected to a lamp to turn it on when someone enters the room.

The mydlink system is designed to work in concert with not only the aforementioned modules, but also the mydlink Home Music Everywhere module. This wirelessly streams music from an Android or iOS device, or any network-connected media player that supports DLNA or AirPlay, to a connected speaker of home stereo with a standard 3.5 mm input jack. Like the other modules, it plugs directly into the mains and operates using a secured Wi-Fi connection.


“Most households now have digital music libraries spread across several devices, combined with music from online streaming services. Music Everywhere makes it incredibly easy to tap into these and stream music around the house, without the short range limitations of Bluetooth,” says Kevin Wen, President of D-Link Europe. “For added convenience, it also boosts Wi-Fi coverage in hard-to-reach areas, such as basements and upstairs bedrooms, ensuring a great listening experience no matter where you are in your home. Music Everywhere helps you turn your simple home into a smart home.”

D-Link says that Music Everywhere can not only increase a home Wi-Fi network’s range, but also the speed to upwards of 300 Mbps.

“D-Link’s motto is ‘Home is where the smart is’ and the new mydlink Home range fulfills that perfectly. Our complete smart home ecosystem truly simplifies home automation, control and security,” says Wen. “Most current ‘smart home’ systems are expensive and complicated to install. We are leading the market in developing this affordable, full-featured do-it-yourself suite of home automation solutions. The devices can be used individually or together, set up quickly and don’t require any monthly fees or subscriptions. Now it’s easy to turn your simple home into a smart home.”

The mydlink Home range and Music Everywhere module will go on sale in Europe on October 7 with pricing yet to be announced.
