The TPE-TG44G 8-Port Gigabit GREENnet PoE+ Switch from TRENDnet offers users 4 x Gigabit PoE/PoE+ ports, 4 x Gigabit ports, a 16 Gbps switching capacity, and a PoE power budget of 60W. It supports IEEE 802.3, 802.3u, 802.3x, 802.3ab, 802.3af, 802.3at, and 802.3az standards and Ethernet data transfer rates of 10 Mbps (half duplex) and 20 Mbps (full duplex), Fast Ethernet data transfer rates of 100 Mbps (half duplex) and 200 Mbps (full duplex), and Gigabit data transfer rates up to 2,000 Mbps (full duplex).
The TPE-TG44G allows for an easy and convenient network configuration and users can take advantage of a variety of features that make this switch easy to setup and manage. Initially, the Plug and Play functionality gets you going with minimal setup needed. Once plugged in you can then take advantage of the Power over Ethernet capabilities of this switch. Power over Ethernet, or PoE, enables you to run power through the Ethernet cabling to compatible devices, such as wireless access points, Internet cameras, VoIP telephony systems, and more, eliminating the need for additional power sources. This switch recognizes non-PoE, PoE, and PoE+ devices and will automatically supply the required amount of power. PoE devices receive up to 15.4W, while PoE+ devices receive up to 30W.
The full duplex ports found on this switch help to enable consistent data transfer. Full duplex ports allow for simultaneous data transfer that not only increases data speeds, but also increases efficiency, as data no longer has to wait to be transferred. This TRENDnet switch also gives you more ports, thus allowing for increased connections. With an enhanced switching capacity, you will have the expanded ability to transfer more data faster.
With integrated LED indicators, you no longer need to delve into the configuration settings of the switch to display its various aspects. The on-off switch allows for increased power efficiency, making it simple to turn off the switch when not in use. If you have non-PoE devices connected to the switch, the switch automatically recognizes them, cutting the power to those devices to conserve power. The TPE-TG44G operates using 100 - 240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and 1.5A. It includes a 52 VDC / 1.38A power adapter.
