The DGS-105/108 5/8-Port Gigabit Desktop 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 Smooth Networking
With data transfer speeds of up to 2000 Mbps on Gigabit Ethernet, the D-Link DGS-105/108 5/8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch is ideal all types of networking tasks. Support for 802.3x Flow Control means smoother network traffic, resulting in an overall boost in performance and reliability. Featuring QoS, the DGS-105/108 prioritizes network traffic by type 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.
Versatile Business-friendly Features
The DGS-105/108 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-105/108 features a Kensington Security Slot on the rear panel where users can fasten the unit to a shelf or desk so the device won’t be accidentally moved or stolen.
The 5/8-Port Gigabit Desktop 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 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.
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 and VoIP calls.
The 5/8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch was designed with the environment in mind. It is compliant with Energy Star Level VI, 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 Energy Star Level VI qualified power adapter in a recyclable packaging making this product truly environmental friendly.
