DescriptionThe first of the Green Ethernet products the DGS-1008A provides 3 key benefits to end users through its cutting edge innovative eco-friendly technology
- Reduces power consumption & creates less heat
- Extended product life
- Reduces Operating Costs
Power Savings by Number of Connected Ports and Link Status
Computers do not require Internet access all the time; neither do switches utilize all ports at all times. When a computer or network equipment is shutdown, switches often remain on and continue to consume considerable amount of power. With Green Ethernet technology, D-Link switches can automatically detect link status and reduce power usage of ports that are idle. Computers or any connecting parties set to standby mode (not power off), however, will not provide significant power savings.
Power Savings by Cable Length
The Green Ethernet switches have the ability to analyze the length of any Ethernet cable connected to them for adjustment of power usage accordingly. Shorter lengths require less power.
Overall Power Savings Per Day
For a traditional switch, power consumption remains constant even when the ports are not in use. In a standard workday scenario where PCs are used for 10 hours a day and powered off 14 hours a day, and connected to the switch using 20 meter cables, D-Link's Green Ethernet can save up to 40%* power used for each system.
Note: Switch uses switching power adapter. The cable length which PCs are connected to switch is 20m cables.
Get the blazing speed of Gigabit Ethernet with the D-Link DGS-1008A, an 8-port Gigabit Switch that delivers power, performance, and reliability in one cost-effective, space-saving design. Increase the speed of your network server and backbone connections, or make Gigabit to the desktop a reality.
Power users in the home, office, workgroup, or creative production environment can now move large, bandwidth-intensive files faster. Transfer graphics, CGI, CAD, or multimedia files across the network instantly.
The D-Link DGS-1008A Gigabit Switch features a non-blocking switching architecture that filters and forwards packets at full wire-speed for maximum throughput. An 8,000 MAC address table provides scalability for even the largest networks. Address learning and aging, 802.3x Flow Control for full duplex mode, and back pressure flow control for half-duplex mode alleviates traffic congestion and ensures reliable data transmission.
Designed using industry standards, it is compatible with virtually all 10, 100, and 1000Mbps Ethernet devices and other vendor equipment. The D-Link DGS-1008A 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Switch protects your existing network investments while providing you with a straightforward migration path to faster Gigabit speeds.
Easy to use
The auto features of this gigabit switch make installation plug and play and hassle-free. No configuring is required. Auto MDI/MDI-X crossover on all ports eliminate the need for crossover cables or uplink ports. Auto-negotiation on each port senses the link speed of a network device (either 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps) and intelligently adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance.
It also features diagnostic LEDs which display status and activity, allowing you to quickly detect and correct problems on the network.
|Switch type What switch device has, managed or unmanaged.
|Ports & interfaces
|Basic switching RJ-45 Ethernet ports quantity The number of basic switching RJ-45 Ethernet ports (sockets).
|Networking standards The way in which the network is working, e.g. IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g.
|IEEE 802.3,IEEE 802.3ab,IEEE 802.3az,IEEE 802.3u,IEEE 802.3x
|10G support The product can use Oracle 10G, which is a database management system introduced in 2003.
|Copper ethernet cabling technology
|Full duplex A full-duplex system allows communication in both directions, and unlike half-duplex, allows this to happen simultaneously.
|Flow control support
|Supported data transfer rates Rates at which data can be transferred. May vary according to network configurations.
|MAC address table The MAC address is the 'Media Access Control Address'. It is a unique address given to a network interface controller (NIC) in a device. A MAC address table shows the addresses in a table format.
|Maximum data transfer rate
|Packet buffer memory
|MAC address filtering Security access control method whereby the 48-bit address assigned to each network card is used to determine access to the network. MAC addresses are uniquely assigned to each card, so using MAC filtering on a network permits and denies network access to specific devices through the use of blacklists and whitelists.
|Product colour The colour e.g. red, blue, green, black, white.
|Housing material What the casing of the product is made of.
|Safety List of regulatory safety standards for all countries in which this product has been certified.
|AC input voltage The voltage of the AC electricity that is inputted into the product.
|100 - 240 V
|AC input frequency
|50 - 60 Hz
|Power over Ethernet (PoE)
|Power over Ethernet (PoE) The device supports Power over Ethernet (PoE), which is one of several standardized or ad-hoc systems which pass electrical power along with data on Ethernet cabling. This allows a single cable to provide both data connection and electrical power to devices such as wireless access points or IP cameras.
|Operating temperature (T-T)
|32 - 104 °F
|Storage temperature (T-T) The minimum and maximum temperatures at which the product can be safely stored.
|-10 - 70 °C
|5 - 95%
|Weight & dimensions
|Width The measurement or extent of something from side to side.
|Depth The distance from the front to the back of something.
|Height The measurement of the product from head to foot or from base to top.
|Input frequency The frequency (Hz) which is required to power the product.
|Input voltage The voltage (V) which is required to power the product.
