D-Link’s DGS-1016D 16-Port Gigabit Switch and DGS-1024D 24-Port Gigabit Switch are part of a new series of SOHO/SMB devices that make use of D-Link’s 2nd generation Green Ethernet technology, providing more energy savings and a longer product life without sacrificing operational performance or functionality. Recyclable packaging and minimized use of harmful substances (RoHS compliant) make this switch truly environmentally friendly.
By building on the foundation of D-Link’s 1st generation of Green Ethernet technology, the 16/24-Port Gigabit Switch helps you conserve energy automatically through several methods. It automatically powers 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 16/24-Port Gigabit Switch was designed with the environment in mind, and was built to follow RoHS standards to minimize use of hazardous materials. It uses recyclable packaging that helps reduce waste, and complies with the WEEE directive.
