What This Product Does
The TP-Link 8-Port Gigabit desktop switch TL-SG1008D provides you an
easy way to make the transition to Gigabit Ethernet. Increase the speed
of your network server and backbone connections, or make Gigabit to the
desktop a reality. Moreover, TL-SG1008D adopts lower power consumption
design. With the innovative energy-efficient technology, the TL-SG1008D
can save up to 80%* of the power consumption, making it an eco-friendly
solution for your home or office network.
Featured with 8 10/100/1000Mbps ports, TL-SG1008D greatly expands your
network capacity, enabling instant large files transferring. Soï¼Œpower
users in the home, office, workgroup, or creative production
environment can now move large, bandwidth-intensive files faster.

Go Green With Your Ethernet
You now have the choice to go green when upgrading to a gigabit
network! This new generation TL-SG1008D 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch
features the latest innovative energy-efficient technologies that can
greatly expand your network capacity with much less power. It
automatically adjusts power consumption according to the link status
and cable length to limit the carbon footprint of your network.
Power down Idle Ports
When a computer or network equipment is off, the corresponding port of
a traditional switch will continue to consume considerable amounts of
power. The TL-SG1008D can automatically detect the link status of each
port and reduce the power consumption of ports that are idle, resulting
in up to an 80% reduction in power use.
Power Budget According to Cable Length
Ideally, shorter cable would use less power because of less power
degradation over their length; this is not the case with most devices
as they will use the same amount of power across the cable regardless
of the length.
Easy to Use
The auto features of this gigabit switch make installation plug and
play and hassle-free. No configuring is required. Auto MDI/MDIX
eliminate the need for crossover cables. 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
* Maximum power savings when compared to a TP-LINK conventional switch,
the real saving rate may vary based on the usage condition.
