D-Link is the first networking company that is taking on the green challenge. The green technology developed by D-link is going to save power for as much as 40%. The D-Link® Green Ethernet™ technology basically figures out the link status, distance, and network cable length and adjusts power accordingly. It also allows you to schedule the times that you want your network to be turned off. Here are the three new products:
- D-Link Xtreme N Gigabit Router (DIR-655) about $99
- D-Link Xtreme N Duo™ Media Router (DIR-855) about $290
- D-Link Xtreme N Gaming Router (DGL-4500) about $179
I personally admire the fact that D-Link is taking this approach. I hope that it does not take away from the network performance. At the same time, I am sure other companies will jump on this trend. Who says you can’t make money with green?
