Designed for SMEs with scalable data and to reduce power consumption
D-Link, a networking infrastructure provider, has launched its third generation Green Ethernet switches, the DGS-1100 series, and its fast Ethernet Web Smart DES-1210 series.
The offerings are designed to allow SMEs to use a fully-featured, managed wireless network at low costs and maintenance.
The DGS-1100 series comply with the new IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) standard. It combines Gigabit Ethernet switching with the latest energy saving technology.
The offering reduces power consumption by switching into a low-power state during periods of low network usage, without interruption to the connection, said the company.
D-Link UK & Ireland general manager Chris Davies said the EasySmart switch is ideal for businesses looking to effectively manage network traffic, but without the cost or complexity usually associated with a traditional managed switch.
Davies said, “The easy installation and range of features of the DGS-1100 removes the barrier of entry for managing networks and ensures that employees will be able to access the network, transfer large files and use online services without loss of speed or quality.”
The EasySmart range is available in both a 16 and 24 port version, with prices starting at £129.99.
Another offering by the company, Ethernet Web Smart DES-1210 series is designed for small and medium businesses (SMBs) looking to construct a secure and productive network environment at an affordable price, said the company.
The DES-1210-08P and DES-1210-28P provide “Power over Ethernet” (PoE) functionality and management capability.
D-Link UK & Ireland general manager Chris Davies said Web Smart switches allow small businesses to work smarter and create highly-flexible networks.
Davies said, “The release of Web Smart further increases the breadth of our switches portfolio and reaffirms our commitment to providing small businesses with reliable, cost-effective and easy-to-use networking products.”
The Web Smart Switches are available in several port configurations, with prices starting at £168.99.
