8-Port 10/100 Unmanaged Metal Desktop Switch

DES-108

Share

Overview

The DES-108 8 Port 10/100 Unmanaged Metal Desktop Switch provides a quick, easy and economical way to add high speed networking to home offices, small and medium businesses. With data transfer speeds of up to 200 Mbps the DES-108 is ideal for fast file transfers. It provides eight ports for easy expansion of your network for connecting printers, scanners, storage, and backup devices to any network.

Effortless High Speed Networking

Features easy access auto sensing 10/100 front Ethernet ports with two LED indicators per port to quickly distinguish link status and speed. The DES-108 switch also supports Auto MDI/MDIX Crossover allowing each port to be plugged directly to a server, hub, router, or switch using regular straight-through twisted-pair Ethernet cables. Support for IEEE 802.1p QoS is included, which organizes and prioritizes time-sensitive and important data for efficient delivery.

Think Green

The DES-108 is a plug-and-play networking switch that offers 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 detects when a connected computer is shut down or when there is no Ethernet traffic, at which time the switch will automatically power down the idle port, saving a substantial amount of power.

IEEE 802.1p QoS

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.

Environmentally Friendly

The DES-108 switch was designed with the environment in mind.  It is compliant with Energy Star Level V, CEC, and MEPS regulations which require the use of energy efficient power adapters. It is built to comply with RoHS standards to minimize use of hazardous materials and is packaged with an Energy Star Level V qualified power adapter all with recyclable packaging making this product truly environmental friendly.
