The DGS-2208 provides three key benefits through its cutting edge,
innovative D-Link Green eco-friendly technology:
- Reduces power
consumption & creates less heat
- Extended product life
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 shut down, switches often remain on
and continue to consume considerable amounts of power. With D-Link Green
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
D-Link Green verified 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.
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 Green Technology can save up to 40%* power used for each
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 DGS-2208, an
8-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.
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-2208 10/100/1000 Mbps 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-2208 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit
Switch protects your existing network investments while providing you
with a straightforward migration path to faster Gigabit speeds.
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.
switch also features diagnostic LEDs which display status and activity,
allowing you to quickly detect and correct problems on the network.
