the d-link 8-port Gigabit Switch is part of d-link’s new series of Soho devices that make use of d-link’s Green technology, providing energy savings, reduced
heat, and a longer product life without sacrificing performance or functionality. an energy-efficient power adapter (energyStar level V qualified), minimized
use of harmful substances (rohS compliant), and recyclable packaging make this switch truly environmentally friendly.
conSerVeS enerGy
the dGS-1008a 8-port Gigabit Switch helps you conserve energy automatically through several methods. it automatically powers down ports that have no link,
allowing the switch to save substantial amounts of power by cutting power usage for unused ports or ports connected to computers that have been shut down.
enVironmentally friendly
the 8-port Gigabit Switch was designed with the environment in mind, and is compliant with energy Star level V, as well as with the stringent cec and mePS
regulations that require the use of energy efficient power adapters. the switch is also built to follow rohS standards to minimize use of hazardous materials,
and uses recyclable packaging that helps reduce waste, complying with the weee directive.
