PoE makes cable mess a thing of the past

For SOHO offices looking to connect WiFi access points, IP cameras, laptops or a wide range of connected devices to the Internet, the GS1200-5HP/8HP v2 PoE switches save users from the cable mess by supplying power and data through one cable instead of two. Users will be able to get past installation limits and place connected devices anywhere they like, even where there is no power socket available. The 60W total PoE budget provides sufficient power to accommodate even the latest WiFi APs or cameras commonly used in SOHO offices.

Break the bottleneck with smart traffic control

For those who make use of streaming services or applications in offices, the GS1200-5HP/8HP v2 switches are compatible with multicast IGMP snooping v1/v2 and v3 to intelligently forward traffic to devices groups without slowing down the entire network. When multiple devices are connected, the QoS (Quality of Service) feature of the switches will prioritize traffic for applications that need it the most, ensuring your bandwidth-hungry applications run without stuttering.

Manage your network with ease

The GS1200-5HP/8HP v2 series makes managing networks a breeze – the graphical user interface helps users gain a clear view of their device status and manage all the simple control functions for office networks through clicks – without bothering with complicated command lines or console interfaces. The simple and elegant metal box carrying a power- saving design easily blends into modern eco-friendly offices.
