Description: D-Link DES 1008D - Switch - unmanaged - 8 x 10/100 - desktop
Mfr Part #: DES-1008D/BD-Link DES-1008D is an unmanaged 10/100Mbps switch designed to enhance small workgroup performance while providing a high level of flexibility. Powerful yet easy to use, this device allows users to simply plug any port to either a 10Mbps or 100Mbps network to multiply bandwidths, boost response time and satisfy heavy load demands.
The switch comes with 8 10/100Mbps ports, allowing a small workgroup to flexibly connect to Ethernet and Fast Ethernet and integrate. These intelligent ports detect the network speed and auto-negotiate between 10Base-T and 100Base-TX, as well as between Half and Full-Duplex.
The flow control function minimizes dropped packets by sending out collision signals when the port's receiving buffer is full. The flow control is available in the half-duplex mode.
All ports support auto-negotiation of MDI/MDIX cross over. This eliminates the need for cross over cables or uplink ports. Any port can simply plug to a server, a hub or a switch, using usual straight-through twisted-pair cable.
With 8 plug-and-play ports, the switch is a perfect choice for the small workgroup to upgrade performance in a client/server environment. The ports can be connected to servers in full-duplex or to hubs in half-duplex.
With low-cost connection per-port, the switch can also be set up for direct connection from the PCs. This relieves data bottleneck by giving each workstation a dedicated bandwidth on the network.
