Product information: ProSafe FS108P 8-Port 10/100 Ethernet Switch with 4-Ports POEThe ProSafe FS108P provides power and data from a single point, using Power over Ethernet
(PoE) over a single Cat-5 cable. The eight Fast Ethernet ports can be used for any 10/100 Mbps
link and four of these ports can supply industry-standard IEEE 802.3af power. Advanced
auto-sensing algorithm gives power only to 802.3af end devices, so no need to worry about
damaging proprietary PoE or non-PoE equipment. In addition, it discontinues the power when
PoE devices are disconnected. Easy and reliable, the ProSafe FS108P automatically determines
PoE requirements, speed, duplex, and cable type using Auto Uplink™.
The affordably priced ProSafe FS108P delivers PoE to any small business network that wants
to simplify the installation of wireless access points and IP-based surveillance cameras. These
devices are optimally installed on a ceiling or high on a wall, away from most electrical outlets.
PoE eliminates the requirement for a dedicated electrical outlet to power these devices. This
allows for flexibility in situating devices where AC power is difficult to access and lowers
installation costs. Compact and flexible, the ProSafe FS108P is ideal for small business networks
that need to inexpensively use PoE to deploy wireless access points and IP-based network
Choose to plug in up to eight Ethernet or Fast Ethernet devices and mix in up to four 802.3af
IP-based devices like wireless access points or IP-based network surveillance cameras. Place
these 802.3af-compliant devices where they belong – high up on walls and ceiling for maximum
coverage – or anywhere else you need them. Power and data are carried over standard
Cat 5 cabling.
The standards-based ProSafe FS108P senses and adjusts for network speed and cabling type
automatically, for easy integration into your existing 10/100 Ethernet network. For PoE, the
switch automatically detects 802.3af-compliant devices, and supplies power as needed. Front
panel LEDs keep you informed of switch and PoE status.
Engineered for compact convenience, it features a 9-inch, durable metal case that is easily
positioned on your desktop or a wall, using the included mounting hardware. The fan-less
design quietly integrates with your small office environment.
With data switching and Power over Ethernet integrated into one unit, the FS108P saves space,
reduces cables and eliminates the requirement for dedicated electrical outlets – lowering
installation costs, simplifying installation of PoE-capable devices, and eliminating the need for
electricians or extension cords. All in all, a great benefit for a modest price.
