The DGS-108 8-Port Gigabit Switch is an economical, plug-and-play networking switch solution for SOHO and small and medium businesses wanting 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.
With data transfer speeds of up to 2000 Mbps on Gigabit Ethernet, the D-Link DGS-108 8-Port Gigabit Switch is ideal for transfering files quickly and online gaming. The DGS-108 features front, easy-to-access Ethernet ports with two color LED indicators per port to easily distinguish link status. Additionally the switch features a Kensington Security Slot on the rear panel where users can fasten the unit to a shelf or desk.
The 8-Port Gigabit Switch features D-Link’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 can detect when a connected computer is shut down or when there is no Ethernet traffic, and will proceed to power down the idle port, 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 only as much power as is required. Both of these features work together to help you save power automatically.
The 8-Port Gigabit Switch was designed with the environment in mind. It is compliant with Energy Star Level V, CEC, and MEPS regulations 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 EnergyStar Level V qualified power adapter in a recyclable packaging making this product truly environmental friendly.
The DGS-108 features QoS which prioritizes network traffic so that timesensitive 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.
