The GS-7308 is a Gigabit Ethernet desktop switch designed for small office or home office applications. It provides Eight 10/100/1000 Mbps auto-negotiation ports and supports auto-MDI/MDIX. The ports can be used to connect to a PC or Server as well as uplink ports to connect other network devices. With the GS-7308, users can keep their original 100 Mbps network cabling in place and, if supported by network devices, increase transmission rate by replacing it with a Gigabit Switch. The GS-7308 supports automatically shifting to power-saving mode when ports are not in use.
