TP-Link’s TL-SG116 10/100/1000 Mbps Desktop switch with 16 connections provides an easy way to make the switch to gigabit Ethernet. The speed of network server and backbone connections can be increased, or make gigabit a reality on a desktop. The TL-SG116 also has low power consumption. Thanks to its innovative power-saving technology, the TL-SG116 can save up to 72% on power consumption, making it an environmentally friendly solution for an enterprise network.
The new generation of TL-SG116 10/100/1000 Mbps desktop switch is equipped with the latest energy-saving technologies, which increase network capacity and significantly reduce power consumption. Power consumption is automatically adjusted according to connection status and cable length to reduce the network’s carbon footprint.
No power for unused ports
When a computer or network device is off, the associated connection of a traditional switch continues to consume significant amounts of power. The TL-SG116 can monitor the connection status of each connection and reduce the power consumption of connections that are not active, consuming up to 72% less power.
Supply budget by cable length
Ideally, a shorter cable should consume less power and give less power loss. However, this is not the case with most devices as they consume the same amount of power through the cable. The TL-SG116 analyzes the length of the connected Ethernet cable and adjusts the power consumption accordingly.
Quality of Services and IGM Snooping
This switch supports Quality of Services (QoS) which allows priorities to be indicated within the network. It can be set to prioritize certain data, such as data for video applications, over standard Internet traffic. This ensures that a stable internet connection for the most important data is always guaranteed. In addition, the switch supports IGMP snooping to optimize multimedia traffic for IPTV, for example.
Plug & Play installation
The automatic features of this gigabit switch make installation plug-and-play hassle-free. No configuration is required. Thanks to Auto MDI/MDIX, no crossover cables are needed. Auto-negotiation on each port detects the connection speed of a network device (10, 100, or 1000 Mpbs) and automatically adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance.
