The DES-1024D is truly Plug and Play with features like: Auto Speed Sensing - allowing it to automatically sense whether a network device is running at 10Mbps or 100Mbps then automatically adjusting itself for optimal performance; Auto-Negotiation (Full or Half Duplex) - negotiating and running the highest supported transmission rate whether at Half- or Full-Duplex; and Auto MDI/MDIX Crossover - offering auto-negotiating MDI/MDIX detection on every port to eliminate the need for crossover cables or uplink ports.
The DES-1024D features a non-blocking wire-speed architecture with a 4.8Gbps switching capacity, for maximum data throughput. It also features an integrated universal power supply, and per port diagnostics LEDs that make it easy to "spot check" for problems.
With wire-speed filtering and Store-and-Forward switching, the DES-1024D also maximizes network performance while minimizing the propagation of bad network packets. This intelligent, easy-to-use 10/100BASE-T switch will enhance and compliment any existing network infrastructure and deliver the performance that IT managers and other SMB network administrators demand.
