Fountain Valley, Calif. — Home networking maker D-Link today launched several green initiatives.
The first is a new device — the D-Link Green 16-port managed gigabit switch — while the second is centered on a new Web site, www.dlinkgreen.com.
The DGS-3200-16 switch uses D-Link Green Technology. This enables the unit to automatically detect the power usage required by each port and to automatically adjust its power consumption,generating a 14 percent power savings. The switch also has a thermal sensor that turns its fan on and off to both save power and lower noise levels.
With this introduction, the company said it now offers a complete suite of green products, including routers, network-attached storage systems and photo frames.
D-Link’s next environmentally friendly venture will be green powerline network adapters.
The new Web site offers an overview of D-Link’s green programs.
