5-Port Fast Ethernet Unmanaged Metal Desktop Switch with 1 PoE Port




The D-Link DES-1005P 5-port 10/100 Unmanaged Desktop Switch with one PoE Port allows you to easily connect a Power over Ethernet (PoE) device such as a wireless access point (AP), IP camera, or IP phone to your existing network. The switch also gives you the opportunity to add additional Ethernet devices such as computers, printers, and Network Attached Storage (NAS) onto your network. This compact PoE switch operates quietly, making it ideal for use in virtually any room or office.

Power Over Ethernet (PoE)

The first port of the DES-1005P supports the IEEE 802.3af PoE standard. The port supplies a total PoE budget of 15.4 watts, allowing users to attach any IEEE 802.3af compliant device to the DES-1005P. Use PoE for applications that are far from power outlets or when you want to minimize the clutter of extra cables.

Conserves energy

The DES-1005P makes use of D-Link Green™ eco-friendly technology, providing energy savings, reduced power consumption, and a longer product life without sacrificing operational performance or functionality. This switch helps to conserve energy through methods such as Link Status and Cable Length Detection. The Link Status feature automatically powers down ports that have no link, allowing the switch to save substantial amounts of energy by cutting power for unused ports or ports connected to computers that have been shut down. It can also detect connected cable lengths, and adjust power usage accordingly, helping you save energy without affecting networking performance. In addition, the fan-less design extends the switch’s life and also reduces noise.

Auto MDI/MDIX crossover

All ports in the DES-1005P support automatic MDI/MDIX crossover, eliminating the need for crossover cables or uplink ports. Each port can be plugged directly to a server, hub, router, or switch using regular straight-through twisted-pair Ethernet cables.
