D-Link has launched its second-generation 5-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch (DGS-1005D), which the company claims provides up to 73% reduced power consumption without sacrificing network performance.
The D-Link DGS-1005D Unmanaged Gigabit is the first out of a series of four environmentally friendly small office/home office (SoHo) Unmanaged Gigabit Switches and, equipped with enhanced power-saving features, is being shipped globally as of today.
“We are very proud of our advancement in the development and furtherance of our “green”, energy-conserving solutions. The next-generation 8-Port, 16-Port and 24-Port Unmanaged Gigabit Switches (DGS-1008, DGS-1016D and DGS-1024D) will also provide the enhanced power-saving features and will be launched later this year”, says Harrison Albert, Regional Sales Director at D-Link Middle East.
“Our goal is to maintain industry leadership as a pioneer of Green networking technology by building in even more energy-saving features into our products without sacrificing performance,” said Tony Tsao, President and CEO of D-Link Corporation. “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.”
