16-Port 10/100 Unmanaged Desktop or Rackmount Switch




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.
