Featuring non-blocking switching architecture, the D-Link DGS-1016D filters and forwards packets at 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 alleviate traffic congestion and ensure reliable data transmission. Designed using industry standards, the DGS-1016D is compatible with virtually all 10, 100, and 1000Mbps Ethernet devices. The DGS-1016D protects your existing network investments while providing you with a straightforward migration path to faster Gigabit speeds.
