You now have the choice to go green when upgrading to a gigabit network! This new generation TP-Link TL-SG1016D 16-Port Gigabit Desktop/Rackmount Switch
features the latest innovative energy-efficient technologies that can greatly expand your network capacity with much less power. It automatically adjusts power consumption according to the link status and cable length to limit the carbon footprint of your network.
When a computer or network equipment is off, the corresponding port of a traditional switch will continue to consume considerable amounts of power. The TL-SG1016D can automatically detect the link status of each port and reduce the power consumption of ports that are idle.
