FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — D-Link today announced two new unmanaged, rack-mountable, 10/100 PoE switches – the 8-port+ and the 16-port . 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.
“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+ and 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 www.dlink.com.
