PLANET Green Networking Switch-GSD-804 is an ideal solution in line with the energy-saving trend worldwide. The GSD-804 is an 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Switch, bringing both benefits of energy saving and Gigabit wire speed performance. It is specially designed for home networking, SOHOs and enterprises.
The GSD-804 uses new engine that provides power saving up to 40% less energy but maintains high performance efficiently. It incorporates two advanced Green Networking technologies:
• Hibernation Link Down power saving
• Intelligent scales power based on cable length
The Hibernation Link Down power saving goes beyond IEEE specifications to automatically lower power for a given port when it is not linked. With the Hibernation Link Down power saving technology, the GSD-804 will automatically adjust power usage of the ports that are shut down or not connected to network device.
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-804 is connected with Ethernet cable shorter than 20m, a device can obtain maximum power saving because the GSD-804 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.
