24-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Desktop/Rackmount Switch



The D-Link 16-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Desktop or Rackmount Switch and the 24-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Desktop or Rackmount Switch each offer an economical way for SOHO and small to medium businesses (SMB) to deploy an energy-efficient switch that features the increased bandwidth of Gigabit ports.

Gigabit on Every Port
These switches bring the speed of Gigabit Ethernet to each and every port for a truly high-speed network. If your network has a mix of legacy and modern computing capabilities, each port allows for 10Mbps standard Ethernet, 100 Mbps Fast Ethernet, or 1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet connections. You have the latest technology available to every computer and device connected to your network.

Conserves Energy
The DGS-1016D and DGS-1024D help you conserve energy automatically through several methods. They automatically power down ports that have no link, saving substantial amounts of power by cutting power usage for unused ports or any ports connected to computers that have been shut down.

Easy to Install and Maintain
These switches were designed for Plug-and-Play and hassle-free installation.  Auto-MDI/MDI-X crossover on all ports eliminates the need for crossover cables when connecting to another switch or hub. Auto-negotiation on each port senses the link speed of a network device and intelligently adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance. Diagnostic LEDs and cable diagnostics allow for quick detection and correction of network problems.

Improved Network Efficiency
The DGS-1016D and DGS-1024D switches incorporate several optional advanced features to help simplify and improve network management and efficiency. Flow Control throttles connections to ensure connectivity during heavy usage periods by reducing packet loss and wasteful data retransmission.  In addition, Storm Control and Port Isolation mitigates the effects of broadcast storms caused by rogue software and malware, which propagate across networks and can bring communication to a standstill.

Limited Lifetime Warranty
D-Link offers a Limited Lifetime Warranty on the DGS-1016D and DGS-1024D unmanaged switches to further its commitment to product quality and long-term customer confidence.
