CITY OF INDUSTRY, CALIF.—Networking product provider TP-LINK introduces a new plug and play, fully-enabled 8-port Power over Ethernet Plus gigabit desktop/rackmount switch to expand an existing wired network.

The TL-SG1008PE transfers electrical power and data in a single Ethernet cable, enabling users to expand their network to hard-to-power locations. The 124W total power budget is intended to extend networks to IP surveillance cameras, IP phones, access points or other PoE+ enabled devices. The TL-SG1008PE supplies power to any IEEE 802.3af/at compliant device across all eight available 10/100/1000Mbps RJ45 ports.

The built-in priority function protects the system in the event of a power overload and is intuitively arranged according to the number of each port. If all connected devices consume power that is greater than or equal to 124W, the switch will cut off power from the lowest-priority port.

No additional configuration or management is required to install the TL-SG1008PE. It can be placed on a desktop or fitted to any standard 1U rack with its 13-inch steel case. Its energy efficient design can save up to 75 percent of the power usage.

The TL-SG1008PE is now available.
