What’s Inside


  • 1 X PoE Switch
  • 1 X AC Cable
  • 1 X Manual

You have everything you need to get your switch up and operating.  Let’s get started.




To deploy your new PoE+ or IEEE 802.3at switch, you really only need three key things:

  1. AC power – 120 VAC 60 Hz or 220 VAC 50 Hz – 500 watts
  2. Gigabit Uplink Data on the RJ45 port
  3. Space: 8 3/4″ wide by 6 1/2″ long desk or wall space

* Optional: If you’re wall mounting it, you do need screws and wall anchors.

That’s it!  It’s designed to be a simply, cost effective PoE+ powered switch you can implement quickly.  You don’t need configuration cables, software downloads, apps, or certifications to use it!

 Your switch has eight Gigabit PoE ports, two Gigabit data only ports, and LED indicator lights.  Not a lot to worry about here.  Let’s show you how it goes together.

Put it together:


If you’re going to set this on a desk or a shelf, you simply place the switch into the location where you need it close enough to the outlet and network connection to your router or switch.


If you plan to mount this on a wall, simply use two wall screws 7.1″ apart to hang the switch on the wall.  You’ll need a small philips head screwdriver for this.

Now you can plug it in using the included AC cable to power it up.  If you’re grounding your network*, you can use the earthing lug on the back of the switch.*  You might be tempted to overground your network.  Only ground your network in one location and ground it well.  Adding more than one grounding point could actually introduce noise to your network.

Let’s power this thing on and configure it!


Okay, you’re done configuring.  The switch will work right out of the box.

    LED LIGHTS: All the fun blinky lights!

    What you really want to check for is that the LNK/ACT light is blinking properly.  The LED should blink green indicating communication is happening with your device.
