Cost-effective Gigabit Solution for SOHO and Department Networking
The GSD-1603 incorporates two advanced green networking technologies and is able to provide power saving up to 40% less energy but maintains high performance efficiently.
(1) Hibernation Link Down power saving
The Hibernation Link Down power saving goes beyond IEEE specifications to automatically lower power consumption for a given port when it is not linked. With the Hibernation Link Down power saving technology, the GSD-1603 will automatically adjust power usage of the ports that are shut down or not connected to network device.
(2) Intelligent scales power based on cable length
Intelligent scales power, the other technology adopted, is an intelligent algorithm that actively determines the appropriate power level based on cable length. When the GSD-1603 is connected with Ethernet cable shorter than 20m, a device can obtain maximum power saving because the GSD-1603 would automatically detect the Ethernet cable length and diminish power usage. The connected device can substantially reduce the overall power consumption, which makes a significant contribution to energy saving.
|Stable and High Performance Switch Architecture
The GSD-1603 has an 8K MAC address table, featuring high performance switch architecture capable of providing the non-blocking 32Gbps switch fabric and wire-speed throughput as high as 23.8Mpps, which greatly simplifies the tasks of upgrading the LAN for catering to increasing bandwidth demands. Besides, the 802.3x full-duplex flow control function of the GSD-1603 enables routers and servers to be directly connected to the switch for wire-speed packet transfer performance without the risk of packet loss.
Flexible Desktop Size and Fanless Design
The GSD-1603 is the standard metal model to fit into a space-limited environment. Designed with compact size, fanless and noiseless features, the GSD-1603 is able to operate stably and quietly in any environment without affecting its performance.
Plug & Play
All RJ45 copper interfaces of the GSD-1603 support 10/100/1000Mbps auto-negotiation for optimal speed detection through RJ45 Category 5, 5e or 6 cables. They support standard auto-MDI/MDI-X feature which can detect the type of connection to any Ethernet device without requiring special straight-through or crossover cables.
