The DGS-1008D offers an economical way for SOHO and small to medium businesses (SMB) to benefit from the increased bandwidth of Gigabit Ethernet. It provides eight Gigabit ports for fast server deployment to meet increasing network loads.
The D-Link 8-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Desktop Switch is part of D-Link’s new series of SOHO devices that makes use of D-Link’s Green technology, providing energy savings, reduced heat, and a longer product life without sacrificing operational performance or functionality. An efficient power adapter (EnergyStar Level V qualified), minimised use of harmful substances (RoHS compliant), and recyclable packaging make this switch truly environmentally friendly.
The DGS-1008D helps you conserve energy automatically through several methods. It features the IEEE802.3az EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) standard which reduces energy consumption by transitioning into a low-power state during periods of minimal usage without interrupting your network. The DGS-1008D will also automatically power down ports that have no link, allowing the switch to save substantial amounts of power by cutting power usage for unused ports or ports connected to computers that have been shut down. It can also detect connected cable lengths, and adjusts power usage accordingly, helping you save energy without affecting networking performance.
The 8-Port Gigabit Switch was designed with the environment in mind, and is compliant with Energy Star Level V, as well as with the stringent CEC and MEPS regulations that require the use of energy efficient power adapters. The switch is also built to follow RoHS standards to minimize use of hazardous materials, and uses recyclable packaging that helps reduce waste, complying with the WEEE directive.
IEEE 802.1p QoS
QoS 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.
Cable Diagnostics Function
The D-Link Cable Diagnostics Function enables users to efficiently detect cable conditions through the LED display on the front-panel. Users can determine whether the pin connections of their cables’ connectors are correct, facilitating network troubleshooting.
