PLANET GSD-8 3 an 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch upgraded from earlier version brings both benefits of energy saving and Gigabit performance. It is specially designed for home networking SOHO and SMB. The GSD-8 3 uses new engine that provides energy saving up to 4 % less energy but does not reduce the performance.The GSD-8 3 incorporates two advanced Green Networking technologies:_††_†† Idle Mode Link Down power saving_††_†† Intelligent Scales Power based on cable lengthThe Idle mode Link Down power saving of GSD-8 3 complies with IEEE 8 2.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) standard to automatically lower power for a given port when it is not linked. With the Idle mode Link Down power saving technology the GSD-8 3 will automatically adjust power usage of the ports that are shut down or not connected to network device. The other technology adopted Intelligent Scales Power is an intelligent algorithm that actively determines the appropriate power level based on cable length. When the GSD-8 3 is connected with Ethernet cable shorter than 2 m a device can obtain maximum power saving because the GSD-8 3 would automatically detect the Ethernet cable length and reduce power usage. The connected device can substantially reduce overall power consumption which makes a significant contribution to energy saving.
