Taipei, Taiwan, October 29, 2007 --- The 8-port EDS-P308 , an unmanaged industrial Ethernet switch offered by Moxa, was selected as a finalist for Plant Engineering magazine's 2007 Product of the Year. This is the 20th year for the magazine's Product of the Year competition, and it is widely recognized as the premier honor for new products in the plant engineering market.

The EDS-P308 is an 8-port Ethernet switch providing PoE (Power over Ethernet) on ports 1 to 4.
