TRENDnet, a global provider of networking solutions to small and medium size business and home users, has launched its energy saving 8-Port 10/100Mbps GREENneT Switch (model TE100-S80g), 5-Port 10/100Mbps GREENneT Switch (model TE100-S50g) and 5-Port Gigabit GREENneT Switch (model TEG-S5g).
These newly launched switches feature TRENDnet's embedded environmentally friendly GREENnetT technology which allows reduction of power consumption by incorporating certain key features.
The GREENnetT switch-based technology determines and supplies the appropriate amount of electrical power to each hardwired switching port as required by the connected device, by the port, or by the length of the connected Ethernet cable.
"In these challenging times, consumers are looking closely at every product purchase," said Brian Chu, Director of Information Technology for TRENDnet.
"TRENDnet GREENnetT switches deliver energy savings at the same performance and price levels as other less efficient products," said Chu.
