8 Ports 10 / 100 Mbps PoE + 8 Ports 10 / 100 Mbps + 2 10 / 100 / 1000BASE-T / SFP Combo Ports Unmanaged Switch
The D-Link® DES-1018P/DES-1018MP 18-Port Unmanaged Desktop PoE Switch enables users to easily connect and supply power to PoE-capable devices such as wireless Access Points (APs), IP cameras, and IP phones. The DES-1018P/DES-1018MP can also connect other Ethernet devices like computers, printers, and a Network Attached Storage (NAS) to fit into any type of network application.
Power Over Ethernet IEEE 802.3af
The DES-1018P/DES-1018MP features 8 or 16 ports (respectively) that support the IEEE 802.3af PoE protocol. Each of the PoE ports can supply up to 15.4 watts, with a total PoE budget of 80 watts (DES-1018P) or 246.4 watts (DES-1018MP), allowing users to attach an IEEE 802.3af-compliant device to the DES-1018P/DES-1018MP without requiring additional power. PoE is especially suitable for devices that are far from power outlets or when users want to minimize the clutter of extra cables as power is supplied via the Ethernet cables themselves.
Expand Your Network
The addition of two Gigabit combo uplink ports means businesses can increase their network bandwidth using the speed of Gigabit Ethernet while offering redundancy so voice and surveillance data are transferred reliably. The combo design can increase bandwidth by offering two Gigabit copper or fiber connections, giving administrators more options for expansion.
Cut Your Energy Costs
To help small businesses save on operating costs, the DES-1018P/DES-1018MP supports IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE). This feature senses network traffic to automatically put ports that are not being used to sleep, powering them on only when they are required. The DES-1018MP also features a smart fan that automatically adjusts itself to reduce power consumption and noise whenever possible to conserve energy, so users can reinvest the cost savings back into their business.*
The DES-1018P/DES-1018MP is a Plug-and-Play device that requires no configuration, so setup is simple and hassle-free. Simply connect the switch to a network and then connect multiple omputers, share files, and make Voiceover-IP calls across the network. Support for Auto MDI/MDIX on all ports eliminates the need for crossover cables when connecting to another switch or hub. Auto-Negotiation on each port senses the link speed of a network device (either 10 or 100) and intelligently adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance. Combining the convenience of PoE, fast performance, reliability, and ease of use, the 18-Port Unmanaged Desktop PoE Switch is the ideal choice for adding PoE devices to a network.
