Pakedge Introduces Its First 8-Port Fully Managed PoE Gigabit Switch

pakedge-s8-0613More and more AV is going IT. And, Pakedge’s new S8Mpd allows for all resolutions of uncompressed video and audio to be routed simultaneously via Ethernet and fiber. Adding to its flexibility, the S8Mpd can be powered Power over Ethernet (PoE) – a major advantage in a retrofit situation where it may not be possible to connect to AC power or where only one Cat5e cable is available in a room.

The Pakedge S8Mpd is a fully managed enterprise-grade switch that allows for maximum dealer customization via its Web-based graphical user interface and CLI programming capabilities.

The S8Mpd is VLAN-capable, allowing the integrator to set up segmented virtual local area networks. Each device on the network — for example, A/V streaming hardware, VoIP phones, gaming systems and guest networks – can be prioritized to enable faster, more efficient network operation.

The S8Mpd is extremely quiet in operation and like other Pakedge products, all cables are installed from the back for a faster, cleaner installation without any messy wires protruding from the front. This switch can either be rack-mounted or wall-mounted using the supplied brackets. These brackets are uniquely designed to be used for rack mounting, and can be flipped around and also be used for wall-mounting.
