The TL-SG1008 8-Port Gigabit desktop/rack-mount switch is an easy way to greatly expand your network capacity and make the transition to Gigabit Ethernet. With all 8 ports supporting auto MDI/MDIX, setup is plug and play so there is no need to worry about cable compatibility. The TL-SG1008 also employs innovative energy-saving technology that can save up to 60%* on power consumption, making it an eco-friendly solution for your business network.
Featured with 8 10/100/1000Mbps ports, the TL-SG1008 greatly expands your network capacity with instant large file transferring suitable for users at the office, home or creative production environments. In this manner, you can transfer graphics, CGI, CAD, or multimedia files across your network instantly.
Go Green With Your Ethernet
You now have the choice to go green when upgrading to a gigabit network! The TL-SG1008 features innovative energy-saving technologies that can greatly expand your network capacity while using much less power. It automatically adjusts power consumption according to the link status and cable length, limiting the carbon footprint of your network.
• Save Power with Idle Ports When computer or network equipment is off, the corresponding port of a traditional switch will continue to consume considerable amounts of power. The TL-SG1008 can automatically detect the link status of each port and reduce the power consumption of ports that are idle.
• Cable Length Power Budgeting Ideally, shorter cables should use less power due to less power degradation over their length. The TL-SG1008 does exactly this. Unfortunately, most other devices use the same amount of power across the cable regardless of the length.
The TL-SG1008 features non-blocking wire-speed architecture with a 96Gbps switching capacity for maximum data throughput. An 8K MAC address table provides scalability for even the largest networks. It also supports 802.3x Flow Control for full-duplex mode, and back pressure flow control for half-duplex mode. This alleviates traffic congestion and ensures reliable data transmission.
Ease of Use
The auto features of this gigabit switch make for an easy plug-and-play installation. No configuring is required. Auto MDI/MDI-X crossover on all ports eliminate the need for crossover cables or uplink ports. Auto-negotiation on each port senses the link speed of a network device (either 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps) and intelligently adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance. Furthermore, its’ compact sized shell and Rackmountable attributes make it safe, convenient, and ideal for desktops with limited space. The TL-SG1008 also comes with Dynamic LED lights that display real-time work status and basic fault diagnosis.
