TRENDnet (7/1/2009)

TORRANCE, Calif. –June 23, 2009–TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces the launch of the 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). The switches feature TRENDnet’s embedded environmentally friendly GREENnet™ technology.

GREENnet™ is a TRENDnet switch-based technology that 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. GREENnet™ technology can reduce port-based power consumption by up to 70%.

GREENnet™ solutions automatically detect if an Ethernet port is not in use and will reduce the amount of power sent to the respective unused port. A port may not be in use when either no device is connected to the port or when the device that is connected to the port is powered down or in Standby mode. Less power is required to send data over shorter cable lengths. GREENnet™ technology automatically detects the length of respective connected cables and adjusts the power supply accordingly. GREENnet™ technology functions automatically, requires no management and has no effect on product performance.

TRENDnet’s compact 8-Port 10/100Mbps GREENnet Switch, model TE100-S80g, has eight 10/100Mbps Auto-Negotiation RJ-45 ports which support Full Duplex mode and deliver a cumulative 1.6Gbps switching capacity.
