Hardware Overview
Front Panel

Ubiquiti Networks 8-Port PoE-Powered Gigabit Switch with PoE Passthrough Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 5

   Port   Description
  Ports 1-8   RJ45 ports support 10/100/1000 Ethernet

connections.

  PoE In

(Port 1)

  Supports 802.3af/at or 48V Passive PoE to power the switch and can provide 48V (2-pair)     PoE passthrough to port 8.
  PoE Out

(Port 8)

  PoE output is Off by default. Enabling PoE output requires 24W input power via PoE In or      DC input.
