The D-Link DGS-1024D is a switch for small and medium companies that do not want to waste time configuring connecting their computers. With a space for connecting up to 24 different computers via cable, this silent accessory will become a very useful tool invisible in the office. And the D-Link DGS-1024D is able to automatically manage each of the wires connected by proper length and the need for energy. As a result, we can expect to save more than 70% energy compared to other models. All with an affordable price of 120 euros that make it an excellent choice for businesses and small offices.
The switch D-Link DGS-1024D has an ability to connect up to 24 different computers via cable, both computers and printers and all types of devices that want to connect to the company network. It uses 24 port interface, compatible with Ethernet, Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet. This capacity should be sufficient for most SMEs and small businesses. These ports are capable of handling speeds of 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps and even 1000 Mbps, making it a durable device for companies planning to grow over the years and that may require more bandwidth.
And the D-Link DGS-1024D is capable of withstanding a high switching capacity of up to 48 Gbps. It should also be noted that this system is compatible with IMDM and MDIX cable and is compatible with devices that exchange these two interfaces automatically. This feature saves you the headache of having to connect wires crossed correctly to work well.
One of the keys to this switch is the simplicity with which you can install in the office. Simply we turn on the computer and then introduce the cables of all equipment that we will use. The D-Link DGS-1024D automatically detects the speed with which each team operates and transmits the necessary capacity. Moreover, it also analyzes individually the length of each wire to how much energy must be transmitted. The result is a team that reaches a significant energy saving up to 73%. Another of the highlights of the switch from D-Link is that it can work as Full-Duplex.
This mode allows two-way communication over the wire simultaneously, so that it can receive and transmit data simultaneously. One of the advantages of working with this mode is that you can reach speeds up to 2000 Mbps and also possible minimizes data loss. For example, if we have our switch connected to a LAN card (PC or server) support flow control, in the event of a subsequent data overload switch stops sending information. Until the buffer is not empty, no information is sent back to the team.
In the field of design, the D-Link DGS – 1024D bets for compact and classical forms. The company has opted for the black colored throughout its surface to provide an elegant touch to the device while in the area in which ports and status lights show used brushed metal gray color. As usual in this type of device, the sides have a grid design in small circles that serve to facilitate ventilation of the appliance and keep the temperature ranges acceptable even in times when more network congestion occurs. We also noticed the print on the top of the logo of the brand, sinking on the metal piece itself and is quite attractive.
The ports are placed in the front area of the device. We have 24 different ports shown in three groups, each with two rows with four ports each. As usual in such devices, the Ethernet cables are connected in reverse order at the top and bottom so that it easier to perform the connection of the same. Besides these lines to ports on the left side we have four rows six LED lights each. These lights shine differently if the cable is plugged in, or if you are producing some form of data transmission. In addition, we see a difference in color in case you are using speeds of 10 and 100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps addition of LED lights for all ports also have a last LED light that lets us know if the switch is on correctly.
The device dimensions are 28 x 18 x 4.4 inches, while its weight is at 1.8 kilos. Undoubtedly, one of the advantages of this equipment is a compact for easy installation in a corner of the office, and makes it a recommended device for businesses that have little space to display their information structures.
The D-Link DGS-1024D can be found in the market for a price of around 120 euros. This switch reaches a switching capacity of up to 48 Gbps, and is capable of operating at speeds up to 1000 Mbps. This makes for a device that will stand the test of time. Its 24 ports allow us to connect all the computers of SMEs without problems, and in addition this equipment is able to efficiently manage the energy according to the demanded speed and the length of each wire.
