Increase the speed of your network server and backbone connections or make gigabit to the desktop a reality. Plus, the TL-SG108 adopts that can save you up to 72% in power consumption, making it an eco-friendly solution for your home or office network.
Faster Network Response TimesThe non-blocking switching architecture adopted in the TL-SG108 greatly improves network response times and significantly speeds up the traffic between subnets by forwarding and filtering packets at full wire speed for maximum throughput.
Diagnostic LED IndicatorsThe TL-SG108 features diagnostic LEDs that display link status and activity, enabling you to quickly detect and correct problems on the network.
Universal System CompatibilityThis TL-SG108 is compatible with all 10, 100, and 1,000 Mbps Ethernet devices, allowing you to protect your existing investments while migrating to a faster network.
Power-Saving FeaturesThe TL-SG108 includes green Ethernet technology and power-saving features to help make your network environmentally friendly without compromising performance. The switch automatically powers down the ports that are idle and budgets power output for different Ethernet cable lengths.
Gigabit SwitchFeatured with 8 10/100/1000Mbps ports, the TL-SG108 greatly expands your network capacity, enabling instant large files transferring. In this way, power users in the home, office, or creative production environment can now move large, bandwidth-intensive files faster. Transfer graphics, CGI, CAD, or multimedia files across the network instantly.
Go Green With Your EthernetYou now have the choice to go green when upgrading to a gigabit network. This new generation TL-SG108 features the latest innovative energy-efficient technologies that can greatly expand your network capacity with much less power. It automatically adjusts power consumption according to the link status and cable length to limit the carbon footprint of your network.
• Power down Idle Ports
When a computer or network equipment is off, the corresponding port of a traditional switch will continue to consume considerable amounts of power. The TL-SG108 can automatically detect the link status of each port and reduce the power consumption of ports that are idle, resulting in up to an 72% reduction in power use.
• Power Budgeting According to Cable Length
While most devices use the same amount of power across cables regardless of their length, shorter cables on the TL-SG108 use less power.
Easy to UseAuto features make the TL-SG105 plug-and-play and hassle-free. No configuring is required. Auto MDI/MDIX eliminates the need for crossover cables. 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.
