D-Link 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet Solutions Raise the Bar for High-Speed Wired Connections

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- CES -- At the Consumer Electronics Show today, D-Link announces their USB-C to 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (DUB-E250), the market's smallest 2.5G adapter solution. A 2021 CES Innovation Award Honoree, the portable adapter enables 2.5X the bandwidth of current Gigabit connections allowing more high-performance online activities than previously possible. D-Link also showcases a new Multi-Gigabit Unmanaged Switch (DMS-106XT) for home and business use.

"2.5GbE is one of the fastest-growing and highly-discussed technology trends of today.  Current digital activities and productivity outpace the capabilities of existing Gigabit Ethernet connectivity," said Raman Bridwell, vice president, products and services at D-Link Systems. "Our new multi-gig unmanaged switch and adapter are helping today's consumer and business users upgrade their systems ushering in more reliable, stable, and improved network performance."

USB-C to 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (DUB-E250)
Answering the high-bandwidth requirements of Wi-Fi 6 along with the increased data traffic straining wired systems, the DUB-E250 adapter provides an affordable, worry-free transition to high-performance networking. With many of today's PCs only offering USB-C connectivity, the DUB-E250 allows customers to connect their PC to multi-gigabit switches such as D-Link's DMS-106XT. This provides the power and speeds needed by content creatorswho need wider data pipelines for file storage and uploads or gamers who want to improve low latency performance.

With ultra-fast 2.5Gbps data transfer rates, the mini DUB-E250 measures smaller in size than a pack of gum, making it easily portable with simple connectivity to an existing PC or laptop. The adapter is backward compatible with existing network equipment eliminating costly, time-consuming equipment updates or replacement costs.

Multi-Gigabit Unmanaged Switch (DMS-106XT)
The innovative DMS-106XT unmanaged switch offers five 2.5G Ethernet ports that accelerate network efficiency and provide uninterrupted Wi-Fi 6 online experiences to 2.5GbE PC notebooks, 4K/HD streaming services, and gaming consoles. In addition, a 10GB Ethernet port allows users to connect a NAS storage device for quick data restoring and backup. With exclusive Smart Turbo Mode, the switch activates extremely low latency for high-quality performance with just the push of a button. Each port is backward-compatible for seamless network integration, and a front-facing LED display provides users simple performance alerts.
