16-Port 10/100 Unmanaged Rackmount Switch




The D-Link DSS-16+ 16-Port 10/100 Unmanaged Rackmount Switch allows expansion of business and home networks by adding more computers, printers and other networking devices. Each switch can achieve speeds up to 200 Mbps per port in full-duplex mode. Using the DSS-16+ switch, IT professionals can quickly connect employees working in small offices with all of the servers, printers, and other devices they use. With high performance and reliable connectivity, these economical 10/100 switches help speed file transfers and data processing, improve network uptime, and keep employees connected and productive.

Expand and Upgrade Network Resources

DSS-16+ switches offer an economical way for SOHO and small to medium businesses (SMB) to benefit from high-speed networking. Each provides sixteen ports for easy expansion of the network and a quick way to upgrade to Fast Ethernet connectivity. The switches speed file transfer times, improve slow and sluggish networks, keep vital business applications available, and help employees respond more quickly to customers and each other.

Conserve Energy

The DSS-16+ switches help conserve energy through IEEE802.3az EEE, which works when both the switch and its link partner are EEE-compliant devices. This power saving feature automatically puts the switch into a low power idle state when the switch utilization is zero, allowing lower energy usage and saving on energy costs.

Designed with the Environment in Mind

The switches use recyclable packaging that helps reduce waste, complying with the WEEE directive. They are innovatively designed to run cool and quiet without sacrificing performance.
