D-Link's DES-105 and DES-108 Fast Ethernet switches provide a cost-effective way for small to medium sized businesses to create a small network and connect computers, wireless Access Points, IP cameras, network printers and other Ethernet devices quickly and easily without complicated configurations. These switches come with 5 or 8 Fast Ethernet ports with an auto-sensing function to detect the maximum speed of the connected devices, allowing you to run your network with the best possible performance. Their fanless design and solid metal housing makes them completely silent so they are ideal for offices, libraries or meeting rooms, and for industrial and hazardous environments like factories and warehouses.
The DES-105 and DES-108 are designed with durability and performance in mind. Their sturdy metal housing will protect them against accidental harm, while helping to dissipate heat and to reduce stress on internal components. The visible LEDs allow for an easy reading of each port status, helping to troubleshoot connectivity problems. For a convenient placement, these switches come with a wall mounting kit and a slot for a Kensington security lock to protect them from theft.
Despite being unmanaged, Plug and Play switches, the DES-105 and DES-108 are able to classify network traffic by assessing the 802.1p field in the Ethernet frames, and forward them out of its ports depending on their priority. This allows for a smooth integration of video, voice and data traffic without delays or loss of quality.
The DES-105 and DES108 are part of D-Link Green, D-Link's eco-friendly technology, providing energy savings, reduced power consumption, and a longer product lifespan without sacrificing operational performance or functionality. These switches implement the 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) standard, which can save a substantial amount of energy by detecting the port status, putting them in low-power, stand-by mode when no network traffic is detected. This helps businesses to save money by reducing their electricity bills with no compromise on performance.
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-105 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.
The DES-105 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.
