Energy-saving and Gigabit High-performance Networking Solution
PLANET GSD-805 8-Port 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet Switch is a green networking solution in line with the energy-saving trend worldwide, but it comes with Gigabit wire-speed performance. Its compact metal housing makes the deployment of Gigabit networks easy for homes, SOHOs and SMBs that are space limited. The operating switch is noiseless as it has a fanless feature. Its internal power supply can be directly plugged into an electrical outlet without having to use a power adapter.
The GSD-805 is equipped with the VLAN Isolation feature. When switching the DIP to the “Enable” position, ports 1 to 7 are not able to communicate with one another. This helps to prevent the IP camera’s multicast or broadcast storm from influencing one another.
Saving Power by 40%
The GSD-805, incorporating two advanced Green Networking technologies, is able to save power by up to 40% but maintains high performance efficiently.
(1) Hibernation Link Down Power Saving
The Hibernation Link Down Power Saving goes beyond IEEE specifications to automatically lower the power supply for a given port when it is not linked. With the Hibernation Link Down Power Saving technology, the GSD-805 will automatically adjust power usage of the ports that are shut down or not connected to a network device.
(2) Intelligent Scales Power based on cable length
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-805 is connected with Ethernet cable shorter than 20m, a device can obtain maximum power saving because the GSD-805 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.
The GSD-805 protects against the ESD 4KV surge to improve product stability and also protects users’ networks from devastating ESD attacks, making sure the flow of operation does not fluctuate.
Leading Home, SOHO and Workgroup Users to High-speed Networking Generation
Providing 16Gbps internal switching fabric, the GSD-805 can handle an extremely large amount of data in a secure topology linking to a backbone or high capacity servers. The GSD-805 provides 8K MAC address table, and wire-speed packet transfer performance without risk of packet loss. The high data throughput of the device makes it ideal for Gigabit environments, especially for the network upgraded to a Gigabit environment.
Plug & Play
All RJ45 copper interfaces of the GSD-805 support 10/100/1000Mbps auto-negotiation for optimal speed detection through RJ45 Category 5, 5e or 6 cables. They support standard auto-MDI/MDI-X feature which can detect the type of connection to any Ethernet device without requiring special straight-through or crossover cables.
