PowerConnect™ switches not only provide the quality, reliability and capability you expect from Dell™, but also the peace of mind that guarantees hardware for life — a true Lifetime Warranty. For more details see www.dell.com/LifetimeWarranty
The Dell PowerConnect™ 2816 switch offers incredible value to customers by delivering Web-managed capabilities that allow users to manage the switch through an intuitive Web interface. This 16-port version is scalable from small workgroups to aggregation solutions at the branch office requiring Gigabit Ethernet. The 16-port switch also saves power by reducing power consumption up to 64 percent on copper ports with short cables, and has energy efficient capabilities that automatically decrease power on any ports that detect unused or powered down devices — saving both energy and money.
The 2816 ships to you as an unmanaged switch for plug and play deployment, but with a push of a button, you can easily convert the switch from unmanaged to a Web-managed switch with the ability to set IP address, configure virtual LANs (VLANs), set Quality of Service (QoS) priorities, and port mirror for intrusion detection and troubleshooting.
