Green Technologies

   
Power Saving by Link Status
When a computer or network equipment is shut down, switches often remain on and continue to consume considerable amounts of power. With D-Link Green Technology allows switches to automatically detect link status and reduce power usage of ports that are idle.
 
 
Power Saving by Cable Length
D-Link Green verified switches have the ability to analyze the length of any Ethernet cable connected to them for adjustment of power usage accordingly. Shorter lengths require less power.
 
 
 
 
 
Time-Based Power over Ethernet (PoE)
Time-based PoE optimization turns PoE on or off based on a schedule to save power. When PoE devices are not in use (i.e. during the night, or on the weekend) PoE can be disabled until needed.
 
 
 
Wi-Fi Scheduler
Scheduled Wireless allows administrators to configure specific hours when the wireless network will be powered off to save energy and enhance security.
 
 
 
 
 
SharePort
SharePort technology saves power by eliminating the need to connect a printer or storage device to a dedicated PC or print server.
 
 
 
LCD Standby
Devices with LCDs such as photo frames and storage routers include a feature to automatically disable the screen/backlight when no motion or activity is detected.
 
 
 
Power Saving by Hard Drives Hibernation
 
In conventional network attached storage (NAS) systems, hard drives are constantly spinning even when they are not actively being accessed. With green hard drive power management, the hard drive is automatically powered down during periods of inactivity, saving power, reducing heat and prolonging the life of the equipment.
 
 
 
Smart FAN
Conventionally, fans in network equipment run constantly regardless of if they are needed or not. Green technology makes use of Smart Fan technology to automatically turn off or lower the speed of the fan to reduce noise and power consumption whenever system temperatures are low.
 
 
 
 
 
Fanless
 
Switch designs usually require a fan to cool the device down. By adopting advanced design, these devices keep the device cool without the need of a fan.
 
 
 
 
PLC (Power Line Communication) Power Saving
 
Energy powers down when no Ethernet activity is detected by the device.
 
 
 
 
Digital Photo Frame Power Saving (Motion Detection Sensor)
 
Rather than constantly powering a device, the motion detection sensor detects if people are within the vicinity. When users are not present, the device automatically turns off to minimize energy consumption.
 
 
 
 
Wireless On/Off Button
 
Even when wireless connection is not needed it is still being used. This function allows users to simply turn off the function, which saves energy.
 
 
 
 
Power On/Off Button
 
The Power On/Off button allows customers to turn off their router/gateway when not in use. This feature allows users to simply switch off their device rather than physically unplugging a power cord.
 
 
 
 
Wireless Output Power Management
 
Tri-level Wi-Fi transmit power setting provides the flexibility to control the Wi-Fi Transmit power to optimize the wireless range. Wi-Fi power consumption for a router or gateway could be reduced by up to 75% of its peak power consumption for serving a small to medium size home, while boosted to maximum power for a large homes and businesses.
 
 
 
 
Wake On LAN
 
Allows the device to be turned on or woken up by a network message.
