8-Port 10/100/1000 Unmanaged Switch
The DGS-1008D 8-Port 10/100/1000 Unmanaged Switch is an economical, plug-and-play networking switch solution for SOHO and small and medium businesses that seek to benefit from the increased bandwidth of Gigabit Ethernet. It provides five/eight Gigabit ports that enable you to easily expand your network and provide a quick way to upgrade your network to Gigabit connectivity. Rounding out the feature list are Quality of Service (QoS) support and Energy-Efficient Ethernet (EEE) for smoother performance and cost savings.
Fast and Reliable Networking
With data transfer speeds of up to 2000 Mbps on Gigabit Ethernet, the D-Link DGS-1008D 8-Port 10/100/1000 Unmanaged Switch is ideal for tasks such as file transfers and Internet telephony. Support for 802.3x Flow Control and Quality of Service means smoother network traffic and fast data transfer speeds for priority data types, resulting in an overall boost in performance and reliability.
Versatile Business-friendly Features
The DGS-1008D features front, easy-to-access Ethernet ports with two color LED indicators per port to easily distinguish link status. Cable Diagnostics simplifies troubleshooting for defective network cables at a glance of the LED panel and plug-and-play lets administrators quickly connect the switch to devices with no hassles. Additionally, the DGS-1008D features a Kensington Security Slot on the rear panel where users can fasten the unit to a shelf or desk so the device wonвЂ™t be accidentally moved or stolen.
The 8-Port 10/100/1000 Unmanaged Switch features D-LinkвЂ™s Green Technology to save energy and reduce heat, which in turn extends product life without sacrificing performance or functionality. The switch supports IEEE 802.3az Energy-Efficient Ethernet (EEE) which cuts down on power consumption during periods of low data activity, and will proceed to put the unused port into sleep mode, saving a substantial amount of power. In addition, the switch can also save energy by detecting the length of cable connected to a port and use as little power as possible. Both of these features work together to help you save power automatically.
The 8-Port 10/100/1000 Unmanaged Switch was designed with the environment in mind. It is compliant with Energy Star Level VI, CEC, and MEPS egulations which require the use of energy efficient power adapters. The switch is built to comply with RoHS standards to minimize use of hazardous materials and is packaged with an Energy Star Level VI qualified power adapter in a recyclable packaging making this product truly environmental friendly.
The DGS-1008D features QoS which prioritizes network traffic so that time-sensitive data is delivered efficiently, even during bursts of high data traffic. This helps ensure an optimal experience for streaming media, VoIP calls, and online gaming.
