The first of
the Green Ethernet products the DGS-1024D 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
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 25%* power used for each system.
Note: Switch uses switching power adapter. The cable length which PCs are connected to switch is 20m cables.
the blazing speed of Gigabit Ethernet with the D-Link GigaExpress
DGS-1024D, an 24-port 10/100/1000Mbps 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.
users in the 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
versatile and compact 1RU height design of the DGS-1024D enables the
device to be rackmounted in a standard 19 inch rack, while conserving
valuable rack space.
Power-Packed It features a
non-blocking switching architecture that filters and forwards packets
at full wire-speed for maximum throughput. An 8K 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-1024D
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. Every port also
supports a cable diagnostic feature that helps to detect cable related
