D-Link's DGS-105 and DGS-108 Gigabit Ethernet switches provide a cost-effective way for small and medium sized businesses to create a small network and connect computers, wireless Access Points, IP cameras, network printers and other Ethernet devices quickly and easily without complicated configurations. These switches come with 5 or 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports with an auto-sensing function to detect the maximum speed of the connected devices, allowing you to run your network with the best possible performance. Their fanless design and solid metal housing makes them completely silent so they are ideal for offices, libraries or meeting rooms, and for industrial and hazardous environments like factories and warehouses.
The DGS-105 and DGS-108 are designed with durability and performance in mind. Their sturdy metal housing will protect them against accidental harm, while helping to dissipate heat and to reduce stress on internal components. The LEDs allow for an easy reading of each port status and speed, helping to troubleshoot connectivity problems. For a convenient placement, these switches come with a wall mounting kit and a slot for a Kensington security lock to protect them from theft.
Despite being unmanaged, Plug and Play switches, the DGS-105 and DGS-108 are able to classify network traffic by assessing the 802.1p field in the Ethernet frames, and forward them out of its ports depending on their priority. This allows for a smooth integration of video, voice and data traffic without delays or loss of quality.
The cable diagnostics function enables users to quickly troubleshoot faulty network cables that may lead to transmission errors. At startup, the switch performs a micro-test to assess the quality of the cables connected to its ports. If a fault is detected, the ambar LED will lit up. If the cables pass the test, the green LED will be illuminated, indicating that the network is error-free. This feature can save valuable time when trying to single out a faulty cable that causes problems in the whole network.
The DGS-105 and DGS-108 are part of D-Link Green, D-Link's eco-friendly technology, providing energy savings, reduced power consumption, and a longer product lifespan without sacrificing operational performance or functionality. These switches implement the 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) standard, which can save a substantial amount of energy by detecting the port status, putting them in low-power, stand-by mode when no network traffic is detected. Additionally, the Green Ethernet technology in the DGS-105/108 can detect the length of the network cables connected to their ports and provide only the right amount of energy required. This helps businesses to save money by reducing their electricity bills with no compromise on performance.
- Effortless Gigabit networking
With data transfer speeds of up to 2000 Mbps on Gigabit Ethernet, the D-Link DGS-108 8-port unmanaged Gigabit switch is ideal for transferring files quickly. Easy access front Ethernet ports with two color LED indicators per port allows you to quickly distinguish link status and speed. The switch supports IEEE 802.1p QoS, which organizes and prioritizes time-sensitive and important data for efficient delivery, allowing for smooth media streaming and VoIP calling.
- Gigabit connection for home and SOHO
The DGS-108 8-port Gigabit switch offers an economical way for SOHO and small/medium businesses to benefit from the increased bandwidth of Gigabit Ethernet. It provides eight Gigabit ports for easy expansion of your network and a quick way to upgrade your network to Gigabit connectivity.
- Think green
The DGS-108 is a Plug-and-Play networking switch that offers D-Link's Green technology to save energy and reduce heat, which in turn extends product life without sacrificing performance or functionality. The switch supports IEEE 802.3az Energy-Efficient Ethernet (EEE) which detects when a connected computer is shut down or when there is no Ethernet traffic, at which time the switch will automatically power down the idle port, saving a substantial amount of power. In addition, the switch can also save energy by detecting the cable length and using only as much power as necessary. Working together these features drastically reduce power consumption and heat dissipation, resulting in extended life and substantial cost savings.
- IEEE 802.1p QoS
QoS prioritizes network traffic so that time-sensitive data is delivered efficiently, even during bursts of high data traffic. This helps ensure an optimal experience for streaming media and VoIP calls.
- Cable diagnostics function
The D-Link cable diagnostics function enables users to be instantly aware of cable conditions through the LED display on the front-panel. Users can determine whether the pin connections of their cable connectors are correct, facilitating prompt network troubleshooting if required.
