The UniFi® 8 Port Switch is the base model in the UniFi® switch range. The US-8 model has 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports Port 1 is PoE In and Port 8 is a Passthrough port. The UniFi® US-8 can also be powered by PoE on Port 1. Port 8 Passthrough is use to power you PoE devices. The item comes with a passive power supply. When the UniFi® US-8 is powered by 802.3af PoE Switch then the Passthrough port doesn’t pass power. If powered by 802.3at PoE Switch the Passthrough port passes 802.3af. When the Passive Power supply is use then passive 48V power is available on Port 8.
Like all products in the UniFi® range these switches are fully manageable via the Ubiquiti UniFi® Cloud Key / UniFi® Controller and deliver robust performance and intelligent switching for your expanding networks.
Switching Performance: The US-8 offers the forwarding capacity to simultaneously process traffic on all ports at line rate without any packet loss. Each port supports up to 8 Gbps total, non-blocking, throughput with a total switching capacity of 16Gbps.
