The DES-1008C 8-Port 10/100 Switch is an 8-port 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet switch that allows you to quickly set up a wired network. Connect the DES-1008C to multiple computers together to share files and folders, or connect it to a router to share an Internet connection.
D-link DES-1008C Features
Auto-sensing 10/100 Ports
The D-Link DES-1008C 8-Port 10/100 Switch uses auto-sensing 10/100Mbps ports, allowing a small workgroup to flexibly connect to Ethernet and Fast Ethernet devices to create an integrated network. These ports detect the network speed and auto-negotiate between 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX, as well as full and half-duplex, allowing you to get the maximum speed possible for each device connected to your network.
Auto MDI/MDIX CrossOver
All ports support automatic MDI/MDIX crossover, eliminating the need for crossover cables or uplink ports. Each port can be plugged directly to a server, hub, router, or switch using regular straight-through twisted-pair Ethernet cables.
Flow Control for Secure Transmission
802.3x flow control on each port minimizes dropped packets when the port’s receiving buffer is full. This gives you a more reliable connection for all of your connected devices, ensuring smooth and uninterrupted network connection.
Additional Salient Features
The DES-1008C 8-Port 10/100 Desktop Switch comes with some built-in utilitarian features to provide you snag-free internet connectivity. The 802.3x flow control of this device provides you a safe avenue for data transmission as dropped packets lower down in number on every port in scenarios when a port’s receiving buffer gets completely filled up. This allows for improved performance in terms of a more fluid and hassle free networking for all the connected devices in your set-up. You would also not be spending too much and saving your bills with the IEEE802.3az EEE power saving built-in in this DES-1008C 8-Port 10/100 Desktop Switch.
You will be in a position to instantaneously check your connection and network status through the LED indicators located on the front panel of the DES-1008C 8-Port 10/100 Desktop Switch. An LED indicator next to each port shows you the link/activity status and an LED indicator shows you the power on/off status for each connected device. You can get ahead with your internet networking the moment you install this DES-1008C 8-Port 10/100 Desktop Switch in your personal computing area. The high 2,137,319 hours MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) featured by the device testifies to its efficient functionality and trouble-free internet connectivity. The RoHS compliant product is also made with eco-sensitive materials and does not harm the nature.
