D-Link DGS-1016TL/DGS-1024TL Gigabit Ethernet Switch Safety Instructions (continued)
â€˘ To help prevent an electric shock, plug the system and peripheral power cables into properly grounded
electrical outlets. These cables are equipped with three-prong plugs to help ensure proper grounding. Do not use adapter plugs or remove the grounding prong from the cable. If you must use an extension cable, use a 3-wire cable with properly grounded plugs.
â€˘ Observe extension cable and power strip ratings. Make sure that the total ampere rating of all products
plugged into the extension cable or power strip does not exceed 80 percent of the ampere ratings limit for the extension cable or power strip.
â€˘ To help protect your system from sudden, transient increases and decreases in electrical power, use a
surge suppressor, line conditioner, or uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
â€˘ Position system cables and power cables carefully; route cables so that they cannot be stepped on or
tripped over. Be sure that nothing rests on any cables.
â€˘ Do not modify power cables or plugs. Consult a licensed electrician or your power company for site
modifications. Always follow your local/national wiring rules.
â€˘ When connecting or disconnecting power to hot-pluggable power supplies, if offered with your system,
observe the following guidelines:
â€“ Install the power supply before connecting the power cable to the power supply. â€“ Unplug the power cable before removing the power supply. â€“ If the system has multiple sources of power, disconnect power from the system by unplugging all power cables from the power supplies.
â€˘ Move products with care; ensure that all casters and/or stabilizers are firmly connected to the system.
Avoid sudden stops and uneven surfaces.
General Precautions for Rack-Mountable Products
Observe the following precautions for rack stability and safety. Also refer to the rack installation documentation accompanying the system and the rack for specific caution statements and procedures. Systems are considered to be components in a rack. Thus, "component" refers to any system as well as to various peripherals or supporting hardware.
CAUTION: Installing systems in a rack without the front and side stabilizers installed can cause the rack to tip over, potentially resulting in bodily injury under certain circumstances. Therefore, always install the stabilizers before installing components in the rack.
After installing system/components in a rack, never pull more than one component
out of the rack on its slide assemblies at one time. The weight of more than one extended component could cause the rack to tip over and may result in serious injury.
â€˘ Before working on the rack, make sure that the stabilizers are secured to the rack, extended to the floor,
and that the full weight of the rack rests on the floor. Install front and side stabilizers on a single rack or front stabilizers for joined multiple racks before working on the rack.
D-Link DGS-1016TL/DGS-1024TL Gigabit Ethernet Switch Safety Instructions (continued) Always load the rack from the bottom up, and load the heaviest item in the rack first. Make sure that the rack is level and stable before extending a component from the rack. Use caution when pressing the component rail release latches and sliding a component into or out of a rack; the slide rails can pinch your fingers. After a component is inserted into the rack, carefully extend the rail into a locking position, and then slide the component into the rack. Do not overload the AC supply branch circuit that provides power to the rack. The total rack load should not exceed 80 percent of the branch circuit rating. Ensure that proper airflow is provided to components in the rack. Do not step on or stand on any component when servicing other components in a rack.
NOTE: A qualified electrician must perform all connections to DC power and to
safety grounds. All electrical wiring must comply with applicable local or national
codes and practices.
CAUTION: Never defeat the ground conductor or operate the equipment in the
absence of a suitably installed ground conductor. Contact the appropriate electrical
inspection authority or an electrician if you are uncertain that suitable grounding is
CAUTION: The system chassis must be positively grounded to the rack cabinet frame. Do not attempt to connect power to the system until grounding cables are
connected. Completed power and safety ground wiring must be inspected by a
qualified electrical inspector. An electrical hazard will exist if the safety ground
cable is omitted or disconnected. Protecting Against Electrostatic Discharge Static electricity can harm delicate components inside your system. To prevent static damage, discharge static electricity from your body before touching any of the electronic components, such as the microprocessor. You can do so by periodically touching an unpainted metal surface on the chassis. You can also take the following steps to prevent damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD):
1. When unpacking a static-sensitive component from its shipping carton, do not remove the component
from the antistatic packing material until you are ready to install the component in your system. Just before unwrapping the antistatic packaging, be sure to discharge static electricity from your body.
2. When transporting a sensitive component, first place it in an antistatic container or packaging. 3. Handle all sensitive components in a static-safe area. If possible, use antistatic floor pads and
workbench pads and an antistatic grounding strap.
D-Link DGS-1016TL/DGS-1024TL Gigabit Ethernet Switch SECTION 1 Introduction Gigabit Ethernet Technology Switching Technology Switch Description Features Front Panel Components LED Indicators Rear Panel Description Side Panel Description
Gigabit Ethernet Technology Gigabit Ethernet is an extension of IEEE 802.3 Ethernet utilizing the same packet structure, format, and support for CSMA/CD protocol, full duplex, flow control, but with a tenfold increase in theoretical throughput over 100- Mbps Fast Ethernet and a hundredfold increase over 10-Mbps Ethernet. Since it is compatible with all 10-Mbps and 100-Mbps Ethernet environments, Gigabit Ethernet provides a straightforward upgrade without wasting a companyâ€™s existing investment in hardware, software, and trained personnel.
The increased speed and extra bandwidth offered by Gigabit Ethernet are essential to coping with the network bottlenecks that frequently develop as computers and their busses get faster and more users use applications that generate more traffic. Upgrading key components, such as your backbone and servers, to Gigabit Ethernet can greatly improve network response times as well as significantly speed up the traffic between your subnets.
Gigabit Ethernet supports video conferencing, complex imaging, and similar data-intensive applications. Likewise, since data transfers occur 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet, servers outfitted with Gigabit Ethernet NICâ€™s are able to perform 10 times the number of operations in the same amount of time. Switching Technology
Another key development pushing the limits of Ethernet technology is in the field of switching technology. A switch bridges Ethernet packets at the MAC address level of the Ethernet protocol transmitting among connected Ethernet or Fast Ethernet LAN segments. Switching is a cost-effective way of increasing the total network capacity available to users on a local area network. A switch increases capacity and decreases network loading by making it possible for a local area network to be divided into different segments which donâ€™t compete with each other for network transmission capacity, giving a decreased load on each. The Switch acts as a high-speed selective bridge between the individual segments. Traffic that needs to go from one segment to another (from one port to another) is automatically forwarded by the Switch, without interfering with any other segments (ports). This allows the total network capacity to be multiplied, while still maintaining the same network cabling and adapter cards. For Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet networks, a switch is an effective way of eliminating problems of chaining hubs beyond the â€śtwo-repeater limit.â€ť A switch can be used to split parts of the network into different collision domains, for example, making it possible to expand your Fast Ethernet network beyond the 205-meter network diameter limit for 100BASE-TX networks. Switches supporting both traditional 10Mbps Ethernet and 100Mbps Fast Ethernet are also ideal for bridging between existing 10Mbps networks and new 100Mbps networks. Switching LAN technology is a marked improvement over the previous generation of network bridges, which were characterized by higher latencies. Routers have also been used to segment local area networks, but the cost of a router and the setup and maintenance required make routers relatively impractical. Todayâ€™s switches are an ideal solution to most kinds of local area network congestion problems.

the length of time stipulated by the Authorized Reseller or D-Link Branch Office nearest to the place of purchase.
This Warranty applies on the condition that the product Registration Card is filled out and returned to a D-Link office
within ninety (90) days of purchase. A list of D-Link offices is provided at the back of this manual, together with a copy
of the Registration Card.
If the product proves defective within the applicable warranty period, D-Link will provide repair or replacement of the
product. D-Link shall have the sole discretion whether to repair or replace, and replacement product may be new or
reconditioned. Replacement product shall be of equivalent or better specifications, relative to the defective product, but
need not be identical. Any product or part repaired by D-Link pursuant to this warranty shall have a warranty period of
not less than 90 days, from date of such repair, irrespective of any earlier expiration of original warranty period. When
D-Link provides replacement, then the defective product becomes the property of D-Link.
Warranty service may be obtained by contacting a D-Link office within the applicable warranty period, and requesting a
Return Material Authorization (RMA) number. If a Registration Card for the product in question has not been returned
to D-Link, then a proof of purchase (such as a copy of the dated purchase invoice) must be provided. If Purchaser's
circumstances require special handling of warranty correction, then at the time of requesting RMA number, Purchaser
may also propose special procedure as may be suitable to the case.
After an RMA number is issued, the defective product must be packaged securely in the original or other suitable
shipping package to ensure that it will not be damaged in transit, and the RMA number must be prominently marked on
the outside of the package. The package must be mailed or otherwise shipped to D-Link with all costs of
mailing/shipping/insurance prepaid. D-Link shall never be responsible for any software, firmware, information, or
memory data of Purchaser contained in, stored on, or integrated with any product returned to D-Link pursuant to this
Any package returned to D-Link without an RMA number will be rejected and shipped back to Purchaser at Purchaser's
expense, and D-Link reserves the right in such a case to levy a reasonable handling charge in addition mailing or
shipping costs. Software:
Warranty service for software products may be obtained by contacting a D-Link office within the applicable warranty
period. A list of D-Link offices is provided at the back of this manual, together with a copy of the Registration Card. If a
Registration Card for the product in question has not been returned to a D-Link office, then a proof of purchase (such as
a copy of the dated purchase invoice) must be provided when requesting warranty service. The term "purchase" in this
software warranty refers to the purchase transaction and resulting license to use such software.
D-Link warrants that its software products will perform in substantial conformance with the applicable product
documentation provided by D-Link with such software product, for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of purchase
from D-Link or its Authorized Reseller. D-Link warrants the magnetic media, on which D-Link provides its software
product, against failure during the same warranty period. This warranty applies to purchased software, and to
replacement software provided by D-Link pursuant to this warranty, but shall not apply to any update or replacement
which may be provided for download via the Internet, or to any update which may otherwise be provided free of charge.
D-Link's sole obligation under this software warranty shall be to replace any defective software product with product
which substantially conforms to D-Link's applicable product documentation. Purchaser assumes responsibility for the
selection of appropriate application and system/platform software and associated reference materials. D-Link makes no
warranty that its software products will work in combination with any hardware, or any application or system/platform
software product provided by any third party, excepting only such products as are expressly represented, in D-Link's
applicable product documentation as being compatible. D-Link's obligation under this warranty shall be a reasonable
effort to provide compatibility, but D-Link shall have no obligation to provide compatibility when there is fault in the
third-party hardware or software. D-Link makes no warranty that operation of its software products will be
uninterrupted or absolutely error-free, and no warranty that all defects in the software product, within or without the
scope of D-Link's applicable product documentation, will be corrected.

non-conforming Software, the price paid by the original licensee for the non-conforming Software will be refunded by D-
Link; provided that the non-conforming Software (and all copies thereof) is first returned to D-Link. The license granted respecting any Software for which a refund is given automatically terminates.
