D-Link's DSS-24+ is a high performance unmanaged Layer 2 Switch that provides
users with 24 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet ports with NWay auto-negotiation
per port. Designed with a new chipset, the DSS-24+ can automatically detect
either MDI/MDIX cable type through any of the Ethernet ports, which eliminates
the need for an uplink port. The DSS-24+ includes support for an optional
2-port 100BASE-FX module with an "SC connector" increasing cable connectivity
to other servers and switches. The DSS-24+ is targeted for both small office
and small business environments.
DSS-24+ switching function forwards data packets at wire speeds for both
10Mbps and 100Mbps. In addition, the DSS-24+ data filtering design eliminates
all errors of packets at each port at wire speeds of 10Mbps and 100Mbps.
As a switching solution, the DSS-24+ initiates a MAC address-learning table
aging features. MAC addresses are automatically updated reducing any broadcast
among network segments, which provides dynamic filtering through auto-learned
MAC addresses and static filtering.
