Product Information for D-link DSS-16+ 16-Port 10/100Mbps Switch

Highlights for D-link DSS-16+ 16-Port 10/100Mbps Switch

  • Product Type:Ethernet Switch
  • Number of Ports:16

The D-Link DSS-16+ is a powerful desktop Dual Speed 16-port 10/100Mb Ethernet/Fast Ethernet NWay auto-negotiating Switch. Designed to bring switching to the small office and small business, the DSS-16+ delivers high speed switching capabilities at a price per port under $34, which makes it the lowest cost per port in the industry.

It functionally eliminates unnecessary traffic and relieves data congestion by delivering dedicated bandwidth for each of the sixteen ports. An individual port can connect to either an Ethernet or Fast Ethernet device. NWay auto-negotiation automatically determines the transmission speed of the attached device on each port.

The DSS-16+ provides dynamic buffer allocation that employs network-load balancing for faster data handling. The uplink interface connection enables easy expansion. The DSS-16+ uses fast store and forward architecture to ensure low latency and high data integrity. It supports stacking through two MDI-II uplink shared ports.

  • Overview

    With the D-Link 16-Port 10/100 Unmanaged Desktop or Rackmount Switch, you can easily expand your business or home network by adding more computers and devices, each achieving speeds up to 200 Mbps per port in full-duplex mode. Quickly and securely connect employees working in small offices with one another and all of the servers, printers, and other devices they use. High performance and reliable connectivity help speed file transfers and data processing, improve network uptime, and keep your employees connected and productive.
  • Expand and Upgrade Your Network

    The DSS-16+ offers an economical way for SOHO and small to medium businesses (SMB) to benefit from high-speed networking. It provides sixteen ports for easy expansion of your network and a quick way to upgrade your network to Fast Ethernet connectivity.

    Conserve Energy

    The DSS-16+ 16-Port 10/100 Unmanaged Desktop or Rackmount Switch helps you conserve energy through IEEE802.3az EEE, which works when both the switch and its link partner are EEE-compliant devices. This power saving feature automatically puts the switch into a low power idle state when the switch utilization is zero, allowing you to lower your energy usage and save on your energy costs.

    Designed with the Environment in Mind

    The DSS-16+ is compliant with Energy Star Level V, as well as with the stringent CEC and MEPS regulations that require the use of energy efficient power adapters. They use recyclable packaging that helps reduce waste, complying with the WEEE directive. It’s innovatively designed to run cool and quiet without sacrificing performance.

  • Limited Lifetime Warranty

    D-Link offers a Limited Lifetime Warranty on the DSS-16+ to further its commitment to product quality and long-term customer confidence. The Limited Lifetime Warranty applies for as long as the original customer owns the product or five (5) years after product discontinuance, whichever occurs first.
