A Closer Look

Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch

Like most business class networking products the Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch come packaged in a plain cardboard box. Listed on the box are the features and specifications as well as the model number.

The Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch is considered a “desktop” switch. The term desktop switch doesn’t mean that it can only be used to connect desktops together rather it refers to the form factor. Typically switches come in two sizes: desktop and rack mount. The dimensions on this switch are 10.32″x7.24″x1.61″. Compared to Cisco’s desktop switch the Catalyst 2960G the Cisco is deeper by about 1/2 inch.

The Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch is un-managed. This means all you need to do is plug it in and in about 15 seconds, the switch will be up and running.

The sides of the Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch contain the vents for the switch. During switching and especially while providing power over Ethernet, the internal switch components can get quite warm. The vents ensure the switch will have adequate cooling for most environments.

One of the things rarely seen in business class switches is a power switch on the device. Rosewill has included one on the Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch.

Remember a few minutes ago when I said the Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch was a “desktop” switch? Rosewill also included a set of rack mount brackets for the switch. These mounts will allow the Rosewill RGS-108P POE Gigabit Network Switch to be mounted in any standard 19″ rack.
