Product Description

Product Description

Affordable Power over Ethernet switching

The ProSafe FS108P provides power and data from a single point, using Power over Ethernet (PoE) over a single cat-5 cable. The eight fast ethernet ports can be used for any 10/100 Mbps link and four of these ports can supply industry-standard IEEE 802.3af power. 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 ProSafe FS108P automatically determines PoE requirements, speed, duplex, and cable type using Auto Uplink.

The affordably priced ProSafe FS108P 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 FS108P is ideal for small business networks that need to inexpensively use PoE to deploy wireless access points and IP-based network surveillance cameras.


  • Supply power to wireless access points and surveillance cameras over cat-5 cabling
  • IEEE 802.3af power on up to four ports
  • Eight 10/100 Mbps ports with AutoUplink

Performance specifications

  • Forwarding modes: Store-and-forward
  • Bandwidth: 1.6 Gbps
  • Network latency: Less than 20 μs for 64-byte frames in store-and-forward mode for 100 Mbps to 100 Mbps transmission
  • Buffer memory: 96 KB embedded memory per unit
  • Address database size: 1,000 media access control (MAC) addresses per system
  • Addressing: 48-bit MAC address
  • Mean time between failure (MTBF): 190,000 hours (~21 years)
  • Acoustic noise: 0 dB


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 ProSafe FS108P 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 features a 9-inch durable metal case that is easily positioned on your desktop or a wall using the included mounting hardware. The fan-less design quietly integrates with your small office environment.

Great value

With data switching and PoE integrated into one unit, the FS108P 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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Keep Away 1 Feb 2014
Style Name:16-port|Verified Purchase
I have bought three of these with each one failing in exactly same way, we have a rural power supply subject to occassional 'stability' problems in other words it goes off on a regular basis. despite the external psu, each one has die after a power outage. I've now replaced them with Cisco and have not had any more problems

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little POE Switch 7 Dec 2009
Style Name:8-port|Verified Purchase
Ordered on Monday, arrived Tuesday.
Great unmanaged switch that provides 4 standards based 802.1af POE ports - connected 4 POE SIP IP phones and worked perfectly, while leaving 4 non POE ports available fro PC's.
POE only active if POE device plugged in to 1 of 4 the POE ports, so you can use all 8 ports for non POE devices.
Note, this is a true switch and not a HUB - so for those looking for a true HUB for packet tracing via something like Wireshark, this is NOT the product. If you are looking for a true HUB, Netgear DS108 or EN104 HUB's are great.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dead after a year or two 18 July 2012
By L. Roy
Style Name:16-port
After a year or two the switch started making a loud hissing noise and then finally gave up the ghost. On opening it up there were swollen capacitors inside (TEAPO brand - cheap as you can get!). These cheapo components can explode in spectacular fashion taking anything connected with them. That would include your expensive PoE devices plugged into the Netgear.

Considering the price avoid. A quiet PoE switch from one of the other big network switch companies would be a better bet.
