The DGS-1016D 16-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Desktop Switch offers an economical way for SOHO and small to medium businesses (SMB) to benefit from the increased bandwidth of Gigabit Ethernet. The DGS-1016D provides 16 Gigabit ports for fast server deployment to meet increasing network loads.
D-Link’s DGS-1016D is part of a new series of SOHO/SMB devices that make use of D-Link’s Green Ethernet technology, featuring IEEE802.3az EEE and EEE+ modes to provide more energy savings and a longer product life without sacrificing operational performance or functionality. IEEE802.3az EEE is a power-saving feature that reduces energy use when the switch is at low utilization. EEE+ is a power-saving feature that is similar to IEEE802.3az EEE. However, unlike EEE, EEE+ can function regardless of whether the switch’s link partner is EEE-compliant or not. Recyclable packaging and minimized use of harmful substances (RoHS compliant) make this switch truly environmentally friendly.
By building on the foundation of D-Link’s Green Ethernet technology, the DGS-1016D helps you conserve energy automatically through several methods. It automatically powers down ports that have no link, allowing the switch to save substantial amounts of power by cutting power usage for unused ports or ports connected to computers that have been shut down. It can also detect connected cable lengths, and adjusts power usage accordingly, helping you save energy without affecting networking performance. This helps you reduce your power usage and your energy bill.
The DGS-1016D was designed with the environment in mind, and was built to follow RoHS standards to minimize the use of hazardous materials. It uses recyclable packaging that helps reduce waste, and complies with the WEEE directive.
IEEE 802.1p QoS
QoS prioritizes network traffic so that time-sensitive data is delivered efficiently, even during bursts of high data traffic. This helps ensure an optimal experience for streaming media, VoIP calls, and online gaming.
Cable Diagnostics Function
The D-Link Cable Diagnostics Function enables users to efficiently detect cable conditions through the LEDs on the front-panel. Users can determine whether the pin connections of their cables’ connectors are correct, facilitating network troubleshooting.

|Switching Fabric||32 Gbps|
The DGS-1016D provides three key benefits through its cutting edge, innovative D-Link Green eco-friendly technology:
Power Savings by Number of Connected Ports and Link Status
Computers do not require Internet access all the time; neither do switches utilize all ports at all times. 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, D-Link switches can automatically detect link status and reduce power usage of ports that are idle. Computers or any connecting parties set to standby mode (not power off), however, will not provide significant power savings.
Power Savings 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.
Overall Power Savings Per Day
For a traditional switch, power consumption remains constant even when the ports are not in use. In a standard workday scenario where PCs are used for 10 hours a day and powered off 14 hours a day, and connected to the switch using 20 meter cables, D-Link Green Technology can save up to 20%* power used for each system.
Note: Switch uses switching power adapter. The cable length which PCs are connected to switch is 20m cables.
Get the bling speed of Gigabit Ethernet with the D-Link GigaExpress DGS-1016D, an 16-port 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Switch that delivers power, performance, and reliability in one cost-effective, space-saving design. Increase the speed of your network server and backbone connections, or make Gigabit to the desktop a reality.
Power users in the office, workgroup, or creative production environment can now move large, bandwidth-intensive files faster. Transfer graphics, CGI, CAD, or multimedia files across the network instantly. The versatile and compact 1RU height design of the DGS-1016D enables the device to be rackmounted in a standard 19 inch rack, while conserving valuable rack space.
It features a non-blocking switching architecture that filters and forwards packets at full wire-speed for maximum throughput. An 8K MAC address table provides scalability for even the largest networks. Address learning and aging, 802.3x Flow Control for full-duplex mode, and back pressure flow control for half-duplex mode alleviates traffic congestion and ensures reliable data transmission.
Designed using industry standards, it is compatible with virtually all 10, 100, and 1000Mbps Ethernet devices and other vendor equipment. The D-Link DGS-1016D 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Switch protects your existing network investments while providing you with a straightforward migration path to faster Gigabit speeds.
Easy to use
The auto features of this gigabit switch make installation plug and play and hassle-free. No configuring is required. Auto MDI/MDI-X crossover on all ports eliminate the need for crossover cables or uplink ports. Auto-negotiation on each port senses the link speed of a network device (either 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps) and intelligently adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance.
The switch also features diagnostic LEDs which display status and activity, allowing you to quickly detect and correct problems on the network. Every port also supports a cable diagnostic feature that helps to detect cable related problems.
