The EGS5212FP is a full featured Gigabit Ethernet switch with comprehensive Layer 2 switching capabilities and PoE+ support. It provides 8 Gigabit ports that support IEEE802.3at/af PoE+, two 1 GbE connectivity for uplinks that allow SMBs to deliver higher bandwidth for congestion relief and 2 SFP slots for fiber transceivers that can extend the reach of the network beyond the limitation of
Ethernet cabling. With rich Layer 2 management features, the EGS5212FP allows quick deployment and simplified maintenance as well as seamless upgrades, making it the ideal networking solution for businesses looking for the best combination of features, performance and value.

8 Gigabit PoE+ Ports, IEEE802.3at/af support

For connecting standard PoE client devices (IP Surveillance Cameras, VoIP telephone systems and wireless access points) and for PoE client devices that require more operational power like some 802.3at-rated access points (i.e., the EnGenius EAP900H Dual Band N900 Ceiling Mount Access Point).


2 Gigabit uplink ports and 2 SFP slots for additional connectivity

Two Gigabit uplink ports that allow network administrators to deliver higher bandwidth for congestion relief and two SFP (copper/hot-swappable small form-factor pluggable) Gigabit ports for optional fiber connectivity for VARs expanding network deployments for businesses, schools, resorts and hotels, or other large properties.


Layer 2 Management and Visibility

Designed for easy network management and can quickly be added to an existing rack of other branded L2 and L3 switches. Configuring the switch is made through an intuitive and user-friendly Web interface for quick and easy management.


VLAN and Voice VLAN

Provides 802.1Q VLAN support for improved convergence and bandwidth utilization


IEEE802.1X and RADIUS Authentication
So IT managers can authenticate clients via external RADIUS servers

Neutron WiFi Integration Compatible (Switch only, not a controller)

*PoE switches and injectors can be used to power PoE compliant devices up to the total power output supported for the LAN port and the switch or injector as a whole.

Users must ensure that their connected device keeps within the maximum PoE power permitted per LAN port of the switch or injector and also the total power for all connected devices is less than the maximum total PoE power that the switch or injector can provide. For example, if the PoE switch is maximum 30W per port (so it conforms to 802.11at) but the maximum PoE power for the switch is 60W and the access point you are connecting is 18W maximum then, even if the switch has 8 PoE LAN ports, you can still only power a maximum of three access points.

Damage caused to the switch or injector by over loading the power budget is NOT covered by warranty.
