D-Link’s new ‘green’ switch saves 14pc power
Dubai, April 8, 2009
D-Link, the end-to-end networking solutions provider, has introduced its first energy-saving managed switch, which can save up to 14.28 per cent in power consumption without sacrificing on network performance.
D-Link’s DGS-3200-16 ‘green’ switch automatically detects a device’s link status and reduces the power usage of ports that are not linked.
In addition to its energy-saving features such as detecting the actual cable length and idle ports, the D-Link DGS-3200-16 managed gigabit switch further includes a fan with heat sensors that maintain the temperature of the device for optimum performance.
In order to reduce noise and energy consumption, the fan turns off by default and automatically turns on when the system operation temperature reaches or surpasses 35°C.
D-Link’s ‘green’ technology has enabled to provide environmentally-friendly managed switches to the growing demand of eco-conscious corporate organisations, governments and educational institutions.
As the first company to introduce “green” networking solutions, D-Link now offers a complete line of green technology products, including switches, wi-fi routers, network attached storage, Internet-enabled digital photo frames and, coming soon, the new D-Link green powerline network adapters.
“Public awareness and legislative action worldwide have created demands for improvements in energy efficiency for networking equipment,” said Harrison Albert, regional sales director at D-Link Middle East.
“D-Link is committed to taking the lead in developing innovative, power-saving networking technology that is ideal for both home and business environments yet doesn’t add extra costs or sacrifice in performance,” Harrison added. – TradeArabia News Service
