GREENnet is a TRENDnet switch-based technology that determines and supplies the appropriate amount of electrical power for each switching port as required by the connected device, by the port or by the length of the connected Ethernet cable. GREENnet technology can reduce power consumption by up to 70%.
How 'GREENnet' Technology Works
GREENnet technology incorporates the following three primary features to reduce power consumption:
1. Link Down Detect
A TRENDnet GREENnet switch will detect if an Ethernet port is not in use and will reduce the power sent to the given port. A port may not be in use either when no device is connected to the port or when the device that is connected to the port is powered down or in standby mode. Regular switches do not have this capability and therefore consume more power while performing the same functions.
2. Cable Length Detect
Less power is required to send data over shorter cable lengths. A TRENDnet GREENnet switch automatically detects the length of the cable that connects the switch to the given networked device and adjusts the power supply accordingly. This technology functions automatically and requires no management.
GREENnet 10/100Mbps Switch Ports · 1-20 meters (1 - 65 ft) = Reduced Power · 21+ meters (66+ ft) = Full Power
GREENnet Gigabit Switch Ports · 1-10 meters (1- 32 ft) = Significantly Reduced Power · 11-60 meters (32 - 197 ft) = Reduced Power · 61+ meters (198+ ft) = Full Power
3. Standby Mode
A TRENDnet GREENnet switch reduces the amount of power consumed by operating in standby mode when it is not being used.
