Reliable Plug and Play Installation
The DES-1005A is a Plug-and-Play device that requires no configuration, so setup is simple and hassle-free, so right away you’re easily able to connect multiple computers, share files, music, and video across your home or small office network, or even create a multi-player gaming environment. 802.3x flow control on each port minimizes dropped packets when the port’s receiving buffer is full. This gives you a more reliable connection for all of your connected devices.
The DES-1005A features D-Link Green technology, which drastically reduces energy consumption. If there is no computer connected to a port or a connected computer is powered off, the port will automatically enter ‘sleep mode’, greatly reducing the power used for that port without interrupting the network connection. In addition, the switch automatically detects the length of connected Ethernet cables and adjusts their power usage accordingly without affecting performance. This considerably lowers overall energy usage, which both saves you money and helps the environment, without the need for micro-management.
Compact and Silent
The DES-1005A has a sleek and compact design, so that you can place it in any easily accessible location and have it stay out of your way. The power connector and ports are all located at the rear of the switch allowing you to tuck the cables away conveniently. The DES-1005A does not use a fan, so the switch operates silently but effectively, letting you watch movies streamed off the Internet without distraction, or browse the web in peace.
