D-Link DES-1016D

The D-Link DES-1016D is a switch with a 10/100Mbits/sec speed. It weighs about 1.9kg and is recommended for business users. The D-Link DES-1016D comes with a 1 year warranty.

Features

The D-Link DES-1016D is IT manager friendly as its front face is far more communicative due to the three rows of LEDs. The first row denotes links and activity, the second shows whether there are collisions taking place in the network and the third shows whether each link is functioning at 100Mbits/sec or not. This is all very useful as it allows the user to quickly tell if cable is faulty or a PC is configured wrongly and is causing packet collisions or even whether a network card is running at its full 100Mbits/sec capacity. Besides that, the D-Link DES-1016D provides 16 ports, all supporting the NWay standard. These ports negotiate between 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX network speeds, as well as between full and half duplex. In the full duplex mode the switch’s embedded flow control provides a means to protect users against possible data loss during transmission on the network. In additon to that, when connected to a LAN adapter (in a server PC) that supports flow control, the switch sends signals to the PC regarding buffer overrun during peak usage periods. The PC then delays transmission until the switch is ready again to accept new data.
