The D-Link DGS-1005A 5-Port Gigabit Desktop Ethernet Switch is equipped with five ports providing dedicated 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps bandwidth. These ports can be used for connecting PCs, printers, servers, routers, switches, hubs, and other network devices. The five multi-speed ports use standard twisted pair cabling and are ideal for segmenting networks into small, connected subnets. This stand-alone switch enables the network to use some of the most demanding multimedia and imaging applications concurrently with other user applications without creating bottlenecks. The DGS-1005A 5-port 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet switch was designed for easy installation and high performance in an environment where traffic on the network and the number of users increase continuously.
