Dubai, July 4, 2009
D-Link Middle East, a leading computer network solutions provider, has launched its second-generation 8-port gigabit desktop switch, which reduces power consumption by up to 84 per cent without sacrificing network performance.
The DGS-1008D is one of four environmentally-friendly small office/home office (SOHO) unmanaged gigabit switches that will ship in 2009 with newly enhanced power-saving features, including a power supply that is Energy Star-compliant.
Already available is the next-generation D-Link 5-port gigabit desktop switch DGS-1005D.
This second-generation release of the D-Link Green switches is part of an award-winning company-wide D-Link Green technology computing initiative that includes manufacturing environmentally-responsible products, eco-friendly packaging, optimizing devices for Energy Star compliance, and providing consumer education and recycling programs.
"Our goal is to maintain industry leadership as a pioneer of green networking technology by implementing even more energy-saving features into our products without sacrificing performance,” said Harrison Albert, regional sales director at D-Link Middle East.
“We plan to continue the momentum of success we’ve realized with our first generation green products as we seek new avenues that protect the environment and help our customers save money in the process,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
