D-Link in carbon footprint milestone
Dubai, December 22, 2010
D-Link Middle East & Africa said it has become the first manufacturer of networking solutions to achieve compliance with a new international carbon footprint standard.
D-Link said its 5-Port (DGS-1005D) and 8-Port (DGS-1008D) desktop switches are now certified compliant with ISO/CD 14067-1:20101 and PAS 2050:20082.
These two standards reinforce D-Link's commitment to energy saving through lowering the carbon footprint of its products and services throughout their entire life cycle-from materials to manufacturing, distribution, use and disposal.
In 2005, D-Link became the first corporation to introduce green networking technology and has always been aware of the importance of making goods or services that are less carbon intensive.
'Since 2005, D-Link has manufactured energy-efficient products by utilizing Green practices and is now extending this initiative to develop products that deliver even better performance using less energy and materials,' said Harrison Albert, regional director at D-Link Middle East & Africa.
'As a leading global networking corporation, we are constantly enhancing our R&D capabilities as well as our supply chain to help protect the planet while at the same time maximizing the benefits for our customers,' Harrison added.
Built with D-Link Green technology, the two desktop switches conserve energy by recognizing when a port is active or inactive, and automatically adjusting the power usage based on cable length to save energy without any loss of performance, the company said.-TradeArabia News Service
