Pakedge Showcases New S8Wpde 8-Port Gigabit Switch, Powered by PoE

Easy-to-use and ideal for expanding an in-home network, multi-room AV setup, security, and other applications

Hayward, CA - Pakedge Device & Software has just announced the release of a new switch. The S8Wpde 8-Port Gigabit Switch, Powered by PoE is easy-to-use and ideal for expanding an in-home network, multi-room AV setup, security, and other applications. This switch replaces the Pakedge S8W, which is being discontinued.

The S8Wpde provides eight gigabit data ports. An additional port can provide the switch with power via PoE. This additional port can also be AC-powered, letting the S8Wpde function seamlessly in both new and old buildings alike. Plug-and-play features allow this switch to run without any installation of software. The S8Wpde is fully compliant with all network protocols.

With compact dimensions of 7.16" W x 3.6" D x 1.4" H, the S8Wpde takes up only a portion of 1U on a wiring rack. This switch comes with a newly designed flange-mount bracket, providing easier installation than traditional, cradle-type brackets.

The S8Wpde features a compact metal housing for maximum durability and easy placement on a flat surface, in a media panel, or mounted on a wall. The S8Wpde requires no fan, allowing it to run silently.

This switch offers a host of reliable, integration-friendly features. The S8Wpde can automatically adjust its network speed and duplex mode with connected devices, running its ports at speeds of 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps.

The S8Wpde supports auto MDI / MDI-X functionality and 9K jumbo frames, providing better network performance, thanks to simultaneous data-sending. In larger installations, each port can connect to another switch or hub. No crossover RJ-45 cables are required.

The Pakedge S8Wpde comes with a AC power adapter and user manual. Available now. Contact for pricing.
