The DGS-1016D provides three key benefits through its cutting edge, innovative D-Link Green eco-friendly technology:
Power Savings by Number of Connected Ports and Link Status
- Reduces power consumption & creates less heat
- Extended product life
- Reduces operating costs
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.
