D-Link Releases Two New ‘Full-Power’ PoE Switches

DES-1008P+ and DES-1018MP switches are designed for demanding applications that require full PoE power (15.4 Watts) on all ports simultaneously, such as IP cameras, IP phones, wireless access points, and more.

D-Link has released two new unmanaged, rack-mountable, 10/100 PoE switches – the 8-port DES-1008P+ and the 16-port DES-1018MP. Both products are designed for demanding applications that require full PoE power (15.4 Watts) on all ports simultaneously, such as surveillance networks with power-hungry IP cameras or wireless network infrastructures powering 802.11ac access points.

“Some IT professionals and system integrators prefer to future-proof their networks by deploying PoE switches with full power budgets,” says Steven Olen, director of product marketing, D-Link Systems Inc. “D-Link’s new DES-1008P+ and DES-1018MP give them that peace of mind.† Even though they may not need all that power today, they can rest easy knowing it will be available when their networking requirements change tomorrow.”

The DES-1008P+ features eight 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet PoE+ ports, all of which support IEEE 802.3at (30W). With a total PoE power budget of 140 Watts, this switch can handle 15.4 Watts of PoE on all eight ports simultaneously.

The DES-1018MP features 16 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet ports supporting IEEE 802.3af (15.4 Watts). Its 246.4 Watt power budget allows all 16 ports to drive 802.3af devices simultaneously. The DES-1018MP also offers two Gigabit SFP/RJ45 combo uplink ports, enabling businesses to increase their network bandwidth. A smart fan automatically adjusts itself to reduce power consumption and noise, and enhanced surge protection on all PoE ports protects the switch when feeding power to outdoor PoE devices.

Both models come in rugged metal housings that can be desktop or rack mounted, and both utilize an internal 100 – 240 VAC power supply.

The new DES-1008P+ and DES-1018MP unmanaged 10/100 PoE switches are currently shipping through D-Link’s network of channel partners, including value-added resellers, distributors, and online retailers. Detailed specifications are available online at
