PLANET introduces a new member in the 802.3af PoE Gigabit Ethernet Switch family – GSD-804P, the 8-Port Gigabit with 4-Port PoE Switch which features high performance Gigabit IEEE 802.3af PoE (Up to 15.4 Watts) and totally 55 Watts PoE budget on half of the 10/100/1000Mbps TP ports of GSD-804P. The four 802.3af PoE ports provide PoE power injector function which is able to drive 4 IEEE 802.3af compliant powered devices. The GSD-804P also provides a simple, cost-effective, and non-blocking wire-speed performance with 10-inch metal shape for desktop deployment in compact housing, SOHO office or department network application.
Providing data transfer and PoE in one unit, the GSD-804P shall reduce the need of extension cables and dedicated electrical outlets on the wall, ceiling or any unreachable place. It helps to lower the installation costs and simplify the installation effort. Besides, the first important key feature is energy saving. With more efficient switching power supply, the efficiency of the GSD-804P would be much better than four linear power adapters in the long run. Furthermore, it is the ideal device for bridging among Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet workgroups and networks. With Gigabit throughput and four 802.3af PoE interfaces supported, the GSD-804P is ideal for small business and workgroups to efficiently deploy the PoE network for the wireless access points, IP-based surveillance camera or IP phones in any places.
