TRENDnet Expands GREENnetT Product Portfolio

TORRANCE, Calif. - January 8, 2010 - TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces the launch of the 8-Port Gigabit GREENnetT Switch, model TEG-S80Dg, which features TRENDnet's embedded power saving GREENnetT technology.

GREENnetT 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. GREENnetT technology can reduce port-based power consumption by up to 70%.


GREENnetT 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. GREENnetT technology automatically detects the length of respective connected cables and adjusts the power supply accordingly. GREENnetT technology functions automatically, requires no management, and has no affect on product performance.

The 8-Port Gigabit GREENnetT Switch, model TEG-S80Dg, boosts efficiency and eliminates network congestion with a total switching capacity of 16Gbps with Full-Duplex mode support for all eight Gigabit Auto-Negotiation RJ-45 ports. The device offers a convenient built in power supply, simple Plug and Play installation, diagnostic LEDs convey port status, and Jumbo Frame support transfers more data in less time. The TEG-S80Dg comes with a five year limited warranty and will be available from TRENDnet's online and retail partners this month. The MSRP for the TEG-S80Dg is US $49.99.

"TRENDnet has released 14 products with integrated GREENnetT power saving technology over the last 12 months," stated Zak Wood, Director of Global Marketing for TRENDnet. "An additional 10 GREENnet products are scheduled for launch in 2010. Our actions support our commitment to develop network hardware solutions that help reduce our carbon footprint."
