D-Link logoLinksys has announced new additions to its small-biz switch and access point families.

The company is fleshing out its previously introduced line with six smart switches including 8, 18 and 26 Gigabit port models, both with and without PoE+ (802.3at).

All models feature energy efficient design and strong feature sets including port-based and 802.1q VLANs, automatic Voice VLAN tagging, 802.3ad link aggregation, priority and class-based QoS, port mirroring and more.

The PoE+ models support PoE on all ports (except combo ports) with total power budgets of 72 W, 125 W and 192 W for the 8, 18 and 26 port models, respectively.
