Product Details

TP-Link 16-Port Gigabit Desktop/Rackmount Switch, Model TL-SG1016D

What This Product Does
The TL-SG1016D 16-Port Gigabit switch provides an easy way to make the transition to Gigabit Ethernet. All 16 ports support auto MDI/MDIX, no need to worry about the cable type, simply plug and play. Moreover, with the innovative energy-efficient technology, the TL-SG1016D can save up to 40%* of the power consumption, making it an eco-friendly solution for your business network.

Gigabit Switch
Featured with 16 10/100/1000Mbps ports, TL-SG1016D greatly expands your network capacity, enabling instant large files transferring. So,power users in the home, office, workgroup, or creative production environment can now move large, bandwidth-intensive files faster. Transfer graphics, CGI, CAD, or multimedia files across the network instantly.

Go Green With Your Ethernet
You now have the choice to go green when upgrading to a gigabit network! This new generation TL-SG1016D 16-Port Gigabit Switch features the latest innovative energy-efficient technologies that can greatly expand your network capacity with much less power. It automatically adjusts power consumption according to the link status and cable length to limit the carbon footprint of your network.

  • Power down Idle Ports
    When a computer or network equipment is off, the corresponding port of a traditional switch will continue to consume considerable amounts of power. The TL-SG1016D can automatically detect the link status of each port and reduce the power consumption of ports that are idle.
  • Power Budget According to Cable Length
    Ideally, shorter cables would use less power because of less power degradation over their length; this is not the case with most devices as they will use the same amount of power across the cable regardless of whether it is 10 or 50 meters (32.8 or 164.0 feet )in length. The TL-SG1016D analyzes the length of the Ethernet cable connected and adjusts the power usage accordingly, rather than keeping the power consumption in a conventional solution.

Easy to Use
The auto features of this gigabit switch make installation plug and play and hassle-free. No configuring is required. Auto MDI/MDIX eliminates the need for crossover cables. Auto-negotiation on each port senses the link speed of a network device (10, 100, or 1000 Mbps) and intelligently adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance.

Excellent 16-Port Switch


from La Palma, CA


  • Desktop or rackmount switch
  • Doesn't overheat
  • Small foot print

      Comments about TP-Link 16-Port Gigabit Desktop/Rackmount Switch:

      Submitted as part of a free sample program. The 16-Port Gigabit Switch has been a wonderful addition to my home network. It fits nicely in my rack and it replaces multiple switches I had prior to having this installed. There is no slow down in speed when everything is connected and was easy to setup. The throughput is also amazing with the gigabit switch. I also like the smaller footprint as it is a desktop/rackmount switch. There is very little latency while using the device and doesn't give off much heat after extended use.

        Comments about TP-Link 16-Port Gigabit Desktop/Rackmount Switch:

        This switch is perfect if you want something that just works, where you don't have to tweak QOS/Routing/VLans/Link Aggregation/SNMP/Port Mirroring etc. It requires no setup. Just plug in your cables and you are ready to go!

        Since this is a fanless design, it is also very, very silent. Another advantage of not having a fan is that it is less likely to suffer from dust build up that can lead to overheating. Though not mentioned on the box or product description, this has an internal power supply (no cable bricks or large wall plugs).

        This can easily be used for a 24x7 setup, and can be completely neglected in a closet/desktop/rack mounting. I can't say yet how well it will hold up over the long term, but I'm not too worried since it comes with a lifetime warranty too. So far I have had zero issues with downtime, speeds, latency, heat, etc. This switched replaced multiple smaller switches, and every device that was working on the original switches, immediately came up at 1Gb on the new switch.

        As an added bonus, this switch came with an excellent pair of rack ears for rack-mounting, and also some rubber feet stickers in case you decide to use this on a desktop. This is great forward thinking from TP-Link as in my experience all desktop placed switches scratch and ruin the tabletops.
