Linksys LGS308MP Overview

  • 1Description

Boost the switching capacity and network security of your business with the Business LGS308MP PoE+ Smart 8-Port Gigabit Network Switch from Linksys. Boasting a total switching capacity of 16 Gb/s and a 11.9 Mpps forwarding rate, the LGS308MP comes equipped with 8 RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet PoE+ ports.

The switch's support for PoE+ is ideal for powering PoE+-enabled devices such as access points, security cameras, and door security systems without the need for additional power cables. Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol support helps to prevent data loops, while storm control allows for the monitoring and management of traffic levels. IGMP snooping helps to boost network efficiency by directing multicast traffic to only the ports that need it, while MAC-based port security requires clients to authenticate before transferring data.

Facilitates Network Expansion
Ideal for complex network environments that demand multiple switches, Linksys Gigabit switches are designed to scale alongside the needs of your growing workforce. They help ensure smooth and seamless network expansion by leveraging IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol, which prevents formation of loops that can be deadly to your network. Multiple high-bandwidth trunks carry data smoothly between the switches, helping alleviate congestion and improve availability. Thanks to storm control, the switches also help minimize loss of service by monitoring and suppressing traffic levels.
Quality of Service
Equipped with numerous QoS features, the LGS308MP switch intelligently manages traffic to help deliver an optimal user experience. The switch leverages IGMP snooping to limit IP multicast traffic to ports that request it. This allows users to engage in video streaming, VoIP calls, high-volume file uploads, and other bandwidth-intensive tasks while keeping network slowdowns to a minimum.
Advanced Security
The LGS308MP switch is designed to safeguard your network's mission-critical data from unauthorized access using port authentication and MAC-based port security, which require clients to authenticate themselves before any data is transferred. DHCP snooping filters out traffic from untrusted sources, and IP-MAC binding functions help promote overall network integrity to protect against attacks.
PoE+ Support
Linksys PoE+ switches can power PoE+ enabled devices such as surveillance cameras, access points, door access control systems, and ProAV systems. This will eliminate the need for additional power cables and outlets, making installation simpler and less expensive.
Link Aggregation
IEEE 802.3ad LACP, up to 4 groups with up to 8 ports per group.
Port-based and 802.1q tag-based VLANs, management VLAN, guest VLAN support, dynamic VLAN assignment via RADIUS server with 802.1x client authentication.
Auto Voice VLAN
Voice traffic is automatically assigned by OUI to a voice-specific VLAN and treated with appropriate levels.
Port Mirroring
Traffic on multiple ports (up to 4 ports) can be mirrored to another port for analysis with a network analyzer.
Embedded remote monitoring (RMON) software agent support for enhanced traffic management, monitoring, and analysis.
HTTP, HTTPS, Telnet (menu-driven), DHCP client, system log, configuration unload and backup via HTTP or TFTP, PING, dual images, and SNTP.
Firmware Upgrade
Supported via web browser (HTTP/HTTPS) and TFTP.

    Linksys LGS308MP Reviews

    Business LGS308MP PoE+ Smart 8-Port Gigabit Network Switch is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Little Switch I received this switch about a week ago, to say the least i work with a lot of enterprise class switches and routers from different vendors, even though this is a very small switch, it is packed with a lot of great enterprise class features, like vlans, link aggregation, mac filtering, acls, port security and whole lot of other features. If you are a network admin, I would definitely recommend this little but powerful device to run a small department or a small office. Really easy and fast set up, and performance. I can not speak about the reliability as much as i would like to since I've had it for only about a week but i haven't had any issues or problems so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from True POE power and rock solid switch Put two of these in an office where we are running IP phones and IP cameras. We had been suffering from phone call drops. We couldn't tell if it was our connection or something internal. Put the LGS308MP in place and our problems went away! Though the switches we had installed were rated to handled the POE needs it is our belief that it wasn't a true rating. Whatever the case, the LGS308MP solved our problems! We also used another one for IP Cameras feeding a server. No dropouts, no disrupted video feed, just clean recordings. Very pleased with the LGS308MP!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great GUI I love this Business LGS308MP PoE+ Smart 8 Port Gigabit Network switch. If you enter its IP address in your browser, you will find a host of helpful options in the GUI. One that helped me a lot was the cable checker. One of my ethernet cables had an issue and another was not inserted properly. I also believe this switch is faster than my previous Netgear switch. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal Switch for Sm Business and Home Office The Linksys Business LGS308MP PoE+ Smart 8 Port Gigabit Network Switch (130W) is a solidly built quiet switch with lots of great features. It comes at an affordable price and is easy to configure. You can connect your IP phones and IP cameras without having to run a separate power source. The switch can be used as a DHCP server and also has advanced Security configurations. The VLAN capablitiy allows you to segregate your network by having voice and data traffic separated. QoS allows you to prioritize your voice traffic to avoid quality issues. The switch offers numerous features that I doubt most businesses will not leverage but its great to have them. In a nutshell this compact switch packs quite a punch! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! Replaced an existing 10/100 Mbps switch with this Gigabit switch and the speed is incredible. In addition to the obvious improvement in speed, we had 4-PoE cameras that were using dedicated PoE injectors that were cumbersome and created a messy install. This PoE switch worked great with the cameras and everything else we have thrown at it. Having a small business class PoE switch that can be wall mounted is fantastic!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of the box networking made simple With an easy to use interface, we were able to get the product configured in a timely fashion. With power over ethernet capability and management as well, it's easy for anyone to get started. We powered a range of POE cameras without issue, as well as a couple POE access points. I could only ask for SPF ports to make this a completely well rounded product that is a good fit for practically any network. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 130W LGS308MP Switch The LGS308MP is very easy to set up out of the box. The instructions are well documented in the included quick start guide. I was up and running in minutes. I applied a few QOS settings to prioritize the video streams from 4 POE cameras I have running through this switch as well as my VOIP traffic. This switch has been running in a small business environment for a few weeks now with no hiccups or dropped connections. The only small complaint I have about this device is it does not include brackets to use it in a rack, which is understandable since it is only an 8-port switch. It does have two mounting points on the bottom for mounting to a wall, which I have done. I would recommend this product to a colleague. So far I believe it is very well constructed and well designed. If I have any further updates, I will post them as an amendment to this review. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
