When a computer or network device is off, the corresponding port of a traditional switch will continue to consume considerable amounts of power. The TL-SG1008 can automatically detect the link status of each port and reduce the power consumption of ports that are idle. The TL-SG1008 also analyses the length of the connected cable and adjusts the power usage accordingly, rather than keeping the power consumption in a conventional solution.
The TL-SG1008 features non-blocking wire-speed architecture with a 96 Gbps switching capacity for maximum data throughput. An 8K MAC address table provides scalability for even the largest networks. It also supports 802.3x Flow Control for full-duplex mode, and back pressure flow control for half-duplex mode alleviates traffic congestion and ensures reliable data transmission.
The auto features of this gigabit switch make installation quick and hassle-free, no configuring is required. Auto MDI/MDI-X crossover on all ports eliminate the need for crossover cables or uplink ports. 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. The compact size makes it ideal for desktops with limited space, while it is also rack mountable, convenient and safe. Dynamic LED lights provide real-time work status display and basic fault diagnosis.
