The DES-1016D 16-Port Fast Ethernet Unmanaged Desktop Switch is designed to enhance workgroup performance while providing a high level of flexibility. Powerful yet easy to use, this device allows users to simply plug any port to either a 10Mbps or 100Mbps network to multiply bandwidths, boost response time and satisfy heavy load demands.
The DES-1016D has 16 plug-and-play ports; the switch is a perfect choice for workgroups to upgrade performance in a client/server environment. The ports can be connected to servers in full-duplex, or hubs in half-duplex.
Auto speed sensing
The switch senses whether a network device is running at 10Mbps or 100Mbps and automatically adjusts for optimal performance.
Whether you are running at half- or in full-duplex, the switch automatically negotiates and runs the highest supported transmission rate.
Auto MDI/MDIX crossover
All ports support auto-negotiating MDI/MDIX detection, which eliminates the need for crossover cables or uplink ports. The DES-1016D is the perfect choice for Plug-and-Play support for 10BASE-T and 100BASE-T networks.
The DES-1016D features a non-blocking wire-speed architecture, with a 3.2Gbps switching capacity, for maximum data throughput. The DES-1016D also features an integrated universal power supply, and per port diagnostics LEDs that make it easy to "spot check" for problems. With wire-speed filtering and store-and-forward switching, the DES-1016D maximizes network performance while minimizing the propagation of bad network packets.
