Safety Instructions (continued)
General Precautions for RackMountable Products
Observe the following precautions for rack stability and safety. Also refer to the
rack installation documentation accompanying the system and the rack for
specific caution statements and procedures.
Systems are considered to be components in a rack. Thus, "component" refers
to any system as well as to various peripherals or supporting hardware.
CAUTION: Installing systems in a rack without the front
and side stabilizers installed could cause the rack to tip
over, potentially resulting in bodily injury under certain
circumstances. Therefore, always install the stabilizers
before installing components in the rack.
After installing system/components in a rack, never pull
more than one component out of the rack on its slide
assemblies at one time. The weight of more than one
extended component could cause the rack to tip over
and may result in serious injury.
Before working on the rack, make sure that the stabilizers are secured to the
rack, extended to the floor, and that the full weight of the rack rests on the floor.
Install front and side stabilizers on a single rack or front stabilizers for joined
multiple racks before working on the rack.
D-Link DGS-1016D/DGS-1024D Unmanaged Gigabit Ethernet Switch
Safety Instructions (continued)
Always load the rack from the bottom up, and load the heaviest item in the rack
Make sure that the rack is level and stable before extending a component from
the rack.
Use caution when pressing the component rail release latches and sliding a
component into or out of a rack; the slide rails can pinch your fingers.
After a component is inserted into the rack, carefully extend the rail into a locking
position, and then slide the component into the rack.
Do not overload the AC supply branch circuit that provides power to the rack.
The total rack load should not exceed 80 percent of the branch circuit rating.
Ensure that proper airflow is provided to components in the rack.
Do not step on or stand on any component when servicing other components in
a rack.
CAUTION: Never defeat the ground conductor or
operate the equipment in the absence of a suitably
installed ground conductor. Contact the appropriate
electrical inspection authority or an electrician if you are
uncertain that suitable grounding is available.
CAUTION: The system chassis must be positively
grounded to the rack cabinet frame. Do not attempt to
connect power to the system until grounding cables are
connected. Completed power and safety ground wiring
must be inspected by a qualified electrical inspector.
An energy hazard will exist if the safety ground cable is
omitted or disconnected.

Switch Description
The 16-port DGS-1016D and 24-port DGS-1024D Switches provide
dedicated 10, 100 or 1000 Mbps Ethernet bandwidth on each port. The
ports will automatically detect the speed, duplex and MDI/MDIX status
of the device it is connecting to, and adjust these settings accordingly.
The Switch ports can be used to network computers, printers, servers,
routers, other switches or any device equipped with an Ethernet port.
For best performance, use Category 5 or better Ethernet cabling.
This stand alone Switch is very easy to set up. There is no network
management is required; simply power on the Switch and connect the

Gigabit Ethernet Technology
Gigabit Ethernet is an extension of IEEE 802.3 Ethernet utilizing the
same packet structure, format, and support for CSMA/CD protocol, full
duplex, flow control, and management objects, but with a tenfold
increase in theoretical throughput over 100-Mbps Fast Ethernet and a
hundredfold increase over 10-Mbps Ethernet. Since it is compatible
with all 10-Mbps and 100-Mbps Ethernet environments, Gigabit
Ethernet provides a straightforward upgrade without wasting a
company’s existing investment in hardware, software and trained
The increased speed and extra bandwidth offered by Gigabit Ethernet
is necessary to coping with the network bottlenecks; more computers
and their bus speeds getting faster, and more applications generate
more traffic in the network. Upgrading key components, such as your
backbone and servers to Gigabit Ethernet can greatly improve network
response times as well as significantly speed up the traffic between
your subnets.
Gigabit Ethernet supports video conferencing, complex imaging and
similar data-intensive applications. Likewise, since data transfers occur
10 times faster than Fast Ethernet, servers outfitted with Gigabit
Ethernet NIC’s are able to perform 10 times the number of operations in
the same amount of time.
802.1p and QoS
The DGS-1024D and DGS-1016D Switches support 802.1p priority
queuing Quality of Service. The implementation of QoS (Quality of
Service) and benefits of using 802.1p priority queuing are described
Advantages of QoS
QoS is an implementation of the IEEE 802.1p standard that allows
network administrators a method of reserving bandwidth for important
functions that require a large bandwidth or have a high priority, such as
VoIP (voice-over Internet Protocol), web browsing applications, file
server applications or video conferencing. Not only can a larger
bandwidth be created, but other less critical traffic can be limited, so
bandwidth can be saved. The Switch has separate hardware queues on
every physical port to which packets from various applications are
mapped to and assigned a priority. The illustration below shows how
802.1P priority queuing is implemented on the Switch. The eight IEEE
802.1P priority levels defined by the standard are mapped to the four
class queues used in the Switch.
Mapping QoS on the Switch
The picture above shows the default priority setting for the Switch.
Class-3 has the highest priority of the four priority queues on the Switch.
In order to implement QoS, the user is required to instruct the Switch to
examine the header of a packet to see if it has the proper identifying tag
tagged. Then the user may forward these tagged packets to designated
queues on the Switch where they will be emptied, based on priority.
"The DUT support strict mode for 802.1p QoS. The untagged pkt will
follow the priority 0 to work (i.e. class 1)."
Understanding QoS
The Switch has four priority queues. These priority queues are labeled
as 3, the high queue to 0, the lowest queue. The eight priority tags,
specified in IEEE 802.1p are mapped to the Switch's priority tags as
Priority 0 is assigned to the Switch's Q1 queue.
Priority 1 is assigned to the Switch's Q0 queue.
Priority 2 is assigned to the Switch's Q0 queue.
Priority 3 is assigned to the Switch's Q1 queue.
Priority 4 is assigned to the Switch's Q2 queue.
Priority 5 is assigned to the Switch's Q2 queue.
Priority 6 is assigned to the Switch's Q3 queue.
• Priority 7 is assigned to the Switch's Q3 queue.
The Switch uses strict priority for Scheduling. Strict priority-based
scheduling, any packets residing in the higher priority queues are transmitted first.
D-Link Green Technology
• IEEE 802.3az Energy-Efficient Ethernet (EEE):
It is the first standard in the history of Ethernet to address proactive
reduction in energy consumption for networked devices. The IEEE
802.3 EEE standard defines mechanisms and protocols intended to
reduce the energy consumption of network links during periods of
low utilization, by transitioning interfaces into a low-power state
without interrupting the network connection.
• EEE+:
• D-Link provides an EEE+ function allowing the user to reduce
energy when the device is at low utilization and the link partner is
a non-EEE compliance switch.
• By default, the EEE+ function is disabled. Users can manually
turn on the EEE+ function by the switch on the front panel to
enable power savings.
• Power Saving Technology:
• Power saving by link status.
If there is no link on a port, such as when there is no computer
connected to the port or the connected computer is powered off,
D-Link’s Green Technology will enter a "sleep mode", drastically
reducing power used for that port.
• Power saving by cable length: 0~20m, 21~100m.
D-Link’s Green Technology detects the length of connected
Ethernet cable and adjusts power usage accordingly without
affecting performance. This way, a port connected to a 20m
cable only uses as much power as it needs, instead of using full
power, which is only needed for 100m cables.
Front-Panel Components
On the front panel of the Switch you will see the following.
LED status indicators
16 Auto-Negotiating 10/100/1000Mbps ports on the DGS-1016D
24 Auto-Negotiating 10/100/1000Mbps ports on the DGS-1024D
EEE+ on/off switch: By default, the EEE+ mode is disabled.
Front Panel View of the Switch
LED Indicators
The LED indicators of the Switch include a Power status indicator and
Link/Act/Speed indicator for each port. When the Switch is powered on
or restarted, it initiates a diagnostics function as part of the boot up
process. The Link/Act/Speed indicators are also used to display Cable
Diagnostics information when the Switch boots up.
LED Indicators
Cable Diagnostics
When the Switch is booted up (when the Switch is first powered on),
the Cable Diagnostics function is initialized and run. The Cable
Diagnostics function will detect two common faults in an Ethernet cable
connecting the Switch to a remote network device: an open circuit (a
lack of continuity between the pins at each end of the Ethernet cable or
a disconnected cable), and a short circuit (two or more conductors
short-circuited). Any of these common cable faults will be detected by
the Cable Diagnostics function and the LEDs will display the results of
the Cable Diagnostics function as follows:
Open or Short circuit
- Link/Act/Speed: Amber
Cable Connection in good status
- Link/Act/Speed: Green
During the diagnostics, each port is scanned to determine if the
Ethernet cable and connectors is in good working order. During the
diagnostics process the LED for each port blinks green in sequential
order. If a cable fault is detected, the corresponding port’s Link/Act/
Speed LED will light amber. The Switch then goes for normal operation.
NOTE: the Cable Diagnostics function does not
detect the length of Ethernet cabling. Remember
that the length of cabling between two Ethernet
devices may not exceed 100 meters (or 300 feet).
LED Indicator
This lights green while the Switch is
receiving power.
When connected to a 1000Mbps device,
this LED indicator light is green when the
port is connected to a device and will blink
as data is transmitted or received.
When connected to a 10/100Mbps device,
this LED indicator light is amber when the
port is connected to a device and will blink
as data is transmitted or received.

1000BASE-T –1000BASE-T - Known as IEEE 802.3ab which is a standard for
Gigabit Ethernet over copper wiring.
100BASE-TX – 100Mbps Ethernet implementation over Category 5 and Type 1
Twisted Pair cabling.
10BASE-T – The IEEE 802.3 specification for Ethernet over Unshielded Twisted
Pair (UTP) cabling.
aging – The automatic removal of dynamic entries from the Switch Database which
have timed-out and are no longer valid.
ATM – Asynchronous Transfer Mode. A connection oriented transmission protocol
based on fixed length cells (packets). ATM is designed to carry a complete range of
user traffic, including voice, data, and video signals.
Auto-Negotiation – A feature on a port, which allows it to advertise its capabilities
for speed, duplex, and flow control. When connected to an end station that also
supports auto-negotiation, the link can self-detect its optimum operating setup.
Backbone port – A port that does not learn device addresses, and that receives all
frames with an unknown address. Backbone ports are normally used to connect the
Switch to the backbone of your network. Note that backbone ports were formerly
known as designated downlink ports.
Backbone – The part of a network used as the primary path for transporting traffic
between network segments.
Bandwidth – Information capacity, measured in bits per second, that a channel can
transmit. The bandwidth of Ethernet is 10Mbps. the bandwidth of Fast Ethernet is
Baud rate – The switching speed of a line. Also known as line speed.
BOOTP – The BOOTP protocol allows you to automatically map an IP address to a
given MAC address each time a device is started. In addition, the protocol can
assign the subnet mask and default gateway to a device.
Bridge – A device that interconnects local or remote networks no matter what higher
level protocols are involved. Bridges form a single logical network, centralizing
network administration.
Broadcast – A message sent to all destination devices on the network.
Broadcast Storm – Multiple simultaneous broadcasts that typically absorb available
network bandwidth and can cause network failure.
Console port – The port on the Switch accepting a terminal or modem connector. It
changes the parallel arrangement of data within computers to the serial form used
on data transmission links. This port is most often used for dedicated local
CSMA/CD – Channel access method used by Ethernet and IEEE 802.3 standards,
in which devices transmit only after finding the data channel clear for some period of
time. When two devices transmit simultaneously, a collision occurs and the colliding
devices delay their retransmissions for a random amount of time.
Data Center Switching – The point of aggregation within a corporate network
where a switch provides high-performance access to server farms, a high-speed
backbone connection, and a control point for network management and security.
Ethernet – A LAN specification developed jointly by Xerox, Intel, and Digital
Equipment Corporation. Ethernet networks operate at 10Mbps using CSMA/CD to
run over cabling.
Fast Ethernet – 100Mbps technology based on the Ethernet/CD network access
Flow Control – (IEEE 802.3z) A means of holding packets back at the transmit port
of the connected end station. Prevents packet loss at a congested switch port.
Forwarding – The process of sending a packet toward its destination by an
internetworking device.
Full-duplex – A system that allows packets to be transmitted and received at the
same time and, in effect, doubles the potential throughput of a link.
Half-duplex – A system that allows packets to be transmitted and received, but not
at the same time. Contrast with full-duplex.
IP address – Internet Protocol address. A unique identifier for a device attached to a
network using TCP/IP. The address is written as four octets separated with full-stops
(periods), and is made up of a network section, an optional subnet section and a
host section.
IPX – Internetwork Packet Exchange. A protocol allowing communication in a
NetWare network.
LAN – Local Area Network. A network of connected computing resources (such as
PCs, printers, servers) covering a relatively small geographic area (usually not larger
than a floor or building). Characterized by high data rates and low error rates.
Latency – The delay between the time a device receives a packet and the time the
packet is forwarded out of the destination port.
Line speed – See baud rate.
Main port – The port in a resilient link that carries data traffic in normal operating
MDI – Medium Dependent Interface. An Ethernet port connection where the
transmitter of one device is connected to the receiver of another device.
MDIX – Medium Dependent Interface Cross-over. An Ethernet port connection
where the internal transmit and receive lines are crossed.
MIB – Management Information Base. Stores a device’s management
characteristics and parameters. MIBs are used by the Simple Network Management
Protocol (SNMP) to contain attributes of their managed systems. The Switch
contains its own internal MIB.
Multicast – Single packets copied to a specific subset of network addresses. These
addresses are specified in the destination-address field of the packet.
Protocol – A set of rules for communication between devices on a network. The
rules dictate format, timing, sequencing, and error control.
Rresilient Llink – A pair of ports that can be configured so that one will take over
data transmission should the other fail. See also main port and standby port.
RJ-45 – Standard 8-wire connectors for IEEE 802.3 10BASE-T networks.
RMON – Remote Monitoring. Subset of SNMP MIB II, which allows monitoring and
management capabilities by addressing up to ten different groups of information.
RPS – Redundant Power System. A device that provides a backup source of power
when connected to the Switch.
Server Farm – A cluster of servers in a centralized location serving a large user
SLIP – Serial Line Internet Protocol. A protocol that allows IP to run over a serial line
SNMP – Simple Network Management Protocol. A protocol originally designed to be
used in managing TCP/IP internets. SNMP is presently implemented on a wide
range of computers and networking equipment and may be used to manage many
aspects of network and end station operation.
Spanning Tree Protocol – (STP) A bridge-based system for providing fault
tolerance on networks. STP works by allowing you to implement parallel paths for
network traffic, and to ensure that redundant paths are disabled when the main
paths are operational and enabled if the main paths fail.
Stack – A group of network devices that are integrated to form a single logical
Standby port – The port in a resilient link that will take over data transmission if the
main port in the link fails.
Switch – A device that filters, forwards, and floods packets based on the packet’s
destination address. The Switch learns the addresses associated with each switch
port and builds tables based on this information to be used for the switching decision.
TCP/IP – A layered set of communications protocols providing Telnet terminal
emulation, FTP file transfer, and other services for communication among a wide
range of computer equipment.
Telnet – A TCP/IP application protocol that provides virtual terminal service, letting a
user log in to another computer system and access a host as if the user were
connected directly to the host.
TFTP – Trivial File Transfer Protocol. Allows you to transfer files (such as software
upgrades) from a remote device using your switch’s local management capabilities.
UDP – User Datagram Protocol. An Internet standard protocol that allows an
application program on one device to send a datagram to an application program on
another device.
VLAN – Virtual LAN. A group of location- and topology-independent devices that
communicate as if they are on a common physical LAN.
VLT – Virtual LAN Trunk. A Switch-to-Switch link which carries traffic for all the
VLANs on each Switch.
VT100 – A type of terminal that uses ASCII characters. VT100 screens have a textbased appearance.
