Buffalo's BS-GSP Series of Multi-Port Gigabit PoE Smart Switches offer an easy and cost-effective way to extend your business network at gigabit speeds with advanced management features and the convenience of Power over Ethernet. Plug and play installation requires no additional software or configuration; each auto-sensing gigabit port automatically detects and configures the correct connection while available SFP slots on the BS-GS2016P and BS-GS2024P models offer fiber connectivity. Jumbo frame support and full duplex operation provide maximum performance for a total switching capacity up to 16 Gbps on the BS-GS2008P, up to 32 Gbps on the BS-GS2016P and up to 48 Gbps on the BS-GS2024P.

Buffalo's Multi-Port Gigabit PoE Smart Switches provide a host of comprehensive HTTP/HTTPS web-based network management features including VLAN, SNMP, port trunking/link aggregation, DHCP snooping, STP support and 802.1p QoS. Along with 802.3az Green Ethernet technology, the BS-GSP Series includes an energy conservation feature that monitors the activity status of each port to reduce the total power consumed.

Gigabit speeds, eco-minded operation, performance-minded features and a lifetime warranty make Buffalo's BS-GSP Series of Multi-Port Gigabit PoE Smart Switches a perfect network extension solution for your office.
