D-Link's DES-1008D is a powerful 8 port 10/100Mbps desktop switch that is an ideal choice for small workgroups. The D-Link DES-1008D allows users to simply plug any port to either a 10Mbps Ethernet or 100Mbps Fast Ethernet network for compatibility, convenience, and faster connection. The switch comes in a small compact size designed for easy installation and high performance. The D-Link DES-1008D eliminates unnecessary traffic and relieves data congestion by delivering dedicated bandwidth for each of the five ports.
Each port on the D-Link DES-1008D supports automatic MDI/MDIX detection providing true 'plug and play' capability without the need for confusing crossover cables or crossover ports. With the media auto-sensing feature, plug in the network cable to the D-Link DES-1008D directly without the need to worry if the end node is a NIC (Network Interface Card) or switch/hub. The D-Link DES-1008D also supports flow control and auto-negotiation of half or full duplex transfer modes for each port.
The D-Link DES-1008D provides dynamic memory allocation for data flow control to guarantee against possible packet loss. The D-Link DES-1008D uses fast store-and-forward switching to ensure low data latency and prevents error packages from transmitting among segments.
