ProSafe® 16-port 10/100 Desktop Switch with 8-port PoE FS116P
The ProSafe FS116P provides power and data from a single point, using Power over Ethernet
(PoE) over a single Cat-5 cable. The sixteen Fast Ethernet ports can be used for any 10/100
Mbps link and eight of these ports can supply industry-standard IEEE 802.3af power. Advanced
auto-sensing algorithm gives power only to 802.3af end devices, so no need to worry about
damaging proprietary PoE or non-PoE equipment. In addition, it discontinues the power when
PoE devices are disconnected. Easy and reliable, the ProSafe FS116P automatically determines
PoE requirements, speed, duplex, and cable type using AutoUplink™.
The affordably priced ProSafe FS116P delivers PoE to any small business network that wants
to simplify the installation of wireless access points and IP-based surveillance cameras. These
devices are optimally installed on a ceiling or high on a wall, away from most electrical outlets.
PoE eliminates the requirement for a dedicated electrical outlet to power these devices. This
allows for flexibility in situating devices where AC power is difficult to access and lowers
installation costs. Compact and flexible, the ProSafe FS116P is ideal for small business network
that want to inexpensively use PoE to deploy wireless access points and IP-based network
Choose to plug in up to 16 Ethernet or Fast Ethernet devices and mix in up to eight 802.3af
IP-based devices like wireless access points or IP-based network surveillance cameras. Place
these 802.3af-compliant devices where they belong - high up on walls and ceiling for maximum
coverage - or anywhere else you need them. Power and data are carried over standard
Plug and Play
The standards-based ProSafe FS116P senses and adjusts for network speed and cabling type
automatically, for easy integration into your existing 10/100 Ethernet network. For PoE, the
switch automatically detects 802.3afcompliant devices, and supplies power as needed. Front
panel LEDs keep you informed of switch and PoE status.
Quiet and Compact
Engineered for compact convenience, it is only 1-inch high and 4-inches deep, with a durable
metal case that is easily positioned on your desktop or a wall, using the included mounting
hardware. The fan-less design quietly integrates in your small office environment.
With data switching and Power over Ethernet integrated into one unit, the FS116P saves space,
reduces cables and eliminates the requirement for dedicated electrical outlets - lowering
installation costs, simplifying installation of PoE-capable devices, and eliminating the need for
electricians or extension cords. All in all a great benefit for a modest price.
