VigorSwitch P-1090 Professional 8-Port PoE+ Switch

The DrayTek VigorSwitch P-1090 Gigabit Ethernet switch is an 8-port device providing all ports with full-power PoE and four of them with extended power PoE+ (802.3at). PoE is ideal for any PoE-enabled devices, including:

  • IP telephones (for example as part of an IP PBX)
  • Wireless access points
  • IP Cameras (Network cameras)
  • Any other device supporting PoE (802.3af / 802.3at)

All 8 ports are full speed Gigabit (1000Mb/s) Ethernet; as well as ensuring that your wired Ethernet devices get maximum speed, Gigabit on PoE is is particularly useful on a network where your PoE devices are providing Gigabit devices to a secondary device, for example IP phone to desktop PC using their loop/passthrough support if it supports Gigabit Ethernet. Of course, regular, non-PoE devices can connect to the switch so will also still take advantage of the Gigabit speed so ideal for a mixed environment. Its predecessor (VigorSwitch P1080) was only 10/100BaseT and only standard PoE. The P1090 also now includes the rack mounting bracket/kit as standard. The units (P1080 vs. P1090) are otherwise identical in features.

PoE - Power over Ethernet

PoE+ is a higher power version of PoE, required for some devices which require up to 30W, such as some external IP cameras or wireless transmission systems. PoE alleviates the need for local power supplies at the equipment location, instead providing the power to the unit over the Ethernet cable, with the data. Using PoE reduces clutter (multiple PSUs) and enables your equipment to be positioned where there is no power outlet. Using PoE also enables you to remotely reboot a device without having to climb up to or go to the device - just remove its Ethernet cable from the switch.

All ports are auto-sensing, meaning that they will only provide power when they detect a PoE device. That saves power and prevents compatibility issues or possible damage/hazard. The P-1090 is designed to meet its full specification - i.e. it can genuinely deliver the stated power, to all 8 ports simultaneously without overload or power being reduced on any ports. The P-1090 can be rack mounted (brackets included) or operated on a desk/shelf. The unit is carefully engineered to be reliable and maintenance free.
