EASILY EXTEND YOUR HOME NETWORK
Integrates any Ethernet enabled device with plug and play setup including PCs, TVs, gaming consoles and other digital home appliances
Multiple gigabit Ethernet ports provide fast transfer rates of large bandwidth intensive files including graphics and multimedia.
FAST AND EASY SETUP
Easy to read LED indicators for each port clearly and quickly communicate which ports have active connections as well as which ports have gigabit speed devices attached. Auto-MDIX provides fast plug and play setup, eliminating the need for a crossover cable while auto-negotiation detects the link speed of the attached device and adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance, making the switch backwards compatible with older network devices.
SAVE ENERGY AND OPERATIONAL EXPENSES
802.3az Green Ethernet technology monitors the link status of each port and only provides power to those that have a connected device that is powered on and puts transmitters into sleep mode when no information is being sent or received. In addition, the length of cable connected to each port is detected and the amount of power supplied is adjusted accordingly. All of these features add up to energy savings of up to 74% over traditional switches.
DETECT NETWORK DISRUPTIONS
Buffalo's BS-GU2008 8-Port Desktop Gigabit Green Ethernet Switch comes with a loop detection feature which will alert you of a loop in your network by lighting an LED on the front of the switch.
