Netgear Prosafe FS116P 16-Port 10/100 Desktop Switch with 8-Port POE
The Netgear Prosafe FS116P Desktop Switch provides power and data from a single point, using Power over Ethernet (PoE) over a single Cat-5 cable. The Netgear 16 Port Switch with 8 port PoE sixteen Fast Ethernet ports can be used for any 10/100 Mbps link and eight of these ports can supply industry-standard IEEE 802.3af power.
Netgear FS116P Key Features
- Data switching & Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) in one unit
- 16 data switching ports, 8 of which provide PoE
- Reduces cables & eliminates need for dedicated electrical outlets
- Locate wireless devices high on walls or ceilings for max coverage
- AutoUplink auto detects speed, duplex & cable type
- Automatically detects PoE devices & supplies power as needed
- Compact & Flexible design at an attractive price
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 Netgeaar FS116P automatically determines PoE requirements, speed, duplex, and cable type using AutoUplink.
Affordable Power over Ethernet Switching
The affordably priced Prosafe 16-Port 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 FS116P is ideal for small business network that want to inexpensively use PoE to deploy wireless access points and IP-based network surveillance cameras.
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.
Plug and Play
The standards-based Netgear Prosafe 16-Port 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.
Quiet and Compact
Engineered for compact convenience, it is only 1-inch high and 4-inches deep, with a durable metal case that is easily positioned on your desktop or a wall, using the included mounting hardware. The fan-less design quietly integrates in your small office environment.
With data switching and Power over Ethernet integrated into one unit, the FS116P 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.
