16‑Port Fast Ethernet Unmanaged Desktop Switch
- Product Status (Revision A): Live
With the D-Link 16-Port Fast Ethernet Unmanaged Switches, 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 with all of the servers, printers, and other devices they use.
Where to buy
10/100Mbps Unmanaged Switch The DES-1016D is an unmanaged 10/100Mbps switch designed to enhance workgroup performance while providing a high level of flexibility. Powerful yet easy to use, this device allows users to simply plug any port to either a 10Mbps or 100Mbps network to multiply bandwidths, boost response time and satisfy heavy load demands.
16 Auto-sensing 10/100Mbps Ports
The switch comes with 16 10/100Mbps ports, allowing a small workgroup to flexibly integrate to Ethernet and Fast Ethernet. These intelligent ports detect the network speed and auto-negotiate between 100BASE-TX and 10BASE-T, as well as between full and half-duplex.
Flow Control for Secure Transmission
All ports support flow control. This function minimizes dropped packets by sending out collision signals when the port's receiving buffer is full.
Auto-negotiation of MDI/MDIX Cross Over
All ports support auto-negotiation of MDI/MDIX cross over. This eliminates the need for cross over cables or uplink ports. Any port can simply plug to a server, a hub or a switch, using the usual straight-through twisted-pair cable.
With 16 plug-and-play ports, the switch is a perfect choice for workgroups to upgrade performance in a client/server environment. The ports can be connected to servers in fullduplex, or hubs in half-duplex.
Direct Connection to Workstations
With low-cost connection per-port, the switch can be set up for direct connection from the PCs. This relieves data bottleneck by giving each workstation a dedicated bandwidth on the network.
