DescriptionGigabit PoE Ethernet Switch
Part #FG2178-63
This Product Has Been Replaced By: NXA-ENET8-POE+

The NXA-ENET8-2PoE Gigabit Ethernet Switch features 8 x 1000 Base-T ports and 2 x 100/1000 Base-X SFP ports. It is designed for homes and businesses that require a managed network to efficiently handle voice, video, and data applications. Transmit both power and data through a single cable to eight remotely located Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) enabled devices such as AMX Touch Panels, Wireless Access Points, VoIP Phones and IP Surveillance cameras. And easily adjust settings to improve throughput, data prioritization and security with the user-friendly web-based management interface.

NXA-ENET8-2PoE is a cost-effective solution that brings continuous availability, network security, and an easy management interface for customers who are looking to migrate from unmanaged to managed networks. It is perfect for homes and businesses. PoE capabilities enable one Ethernet cable to deliver both data and power devices such as AMX Touch Panels, WAPs and VoIP phones.


  • Gigabit Ethernet Switch - Gigabit switching capacity significantly improves the performance of a network's backbone delivering the throughput needed to support a broad range of advanced network applications and reduce file transfer times
  • Multiple 10/100/1000 Base-T Ports - supports three different transfer rates on the same port and auto-selects the best speed and duplex supported by both connected devices for maximum data throughput
  • Two Gigabit Ethernet 100/1000 Base-X SFP Ports - Provides uplink flexibility, offering extended fiber connections to the network
  • Provides Power over Ethernet - can deliver maximum power up to 15.4W for 4 ports or 7.5W simultaneously for 8 ports over twisted pair cable up to 100 meters.
  • Simplified Set-Up - The embedded web interface is user-friendly and enables users to quickly and simply configure the NXA-ENET8-2PoE.
  • Comprehensive Quality of Service - Four queues per port enable differentiated management of up to four traffic types - traffic is prioritized providing optimal performance for real-time applications such as voice and video.
  • Enhanced Security Features - IEEE 802.1X port-based access control ensures all users are authorized before being granted network access, plus user authentication can be managed using a RADIUS server.
  • Power Management Capabilities - the NXA-ENET8-2PoE can auto-detect powered devices and power consumption, cutting power to ports with devices that have been powered off and prioritization of ports to ensure power to important devices is retained if the power demand exceeds the maximum power supply.
  • Supports IGMP Snooping - The NXA-ENET8-2PoE supports multicast video for solutions such as AMX Vision¬≤.
  • Send Signals Extreme Distances - The NXA-ENET8-2PoE can send data over fiber for distances to 70 kilometers depending on the cable type using the shared RJ-45/SFP combo port.
  • Fanless Design - Less moving parts reduces potential failures and runs quieter.
