The Smart Mode enables IT administrators to quickly set up important features such as basic IP settings, Energy Efficient Ethernet, Web Authentication, DHCP Snooping, and the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP). The Advance Mode provides more comprehensive options for users to configure the advanced settings. In addition, the GS1510 Series provides Auto-discovery tool for topology management as well. This tool helps the network administrator to find the IP address of a GS1510 on the network by performing a scan process; this function is useful if the default IP address has been changed and the device could not be located on the network. The GS1510 Series has environment-awareness along with Gigabit Ethernet speeds critical for the next-generation network applications and provides power saving functions to reduce energy consumption and to help businesses save cost. Traffic detection - IEEE Energy-Efficient-Ethernet (EEE) compliance. The feature automatically detects network traffics and adjusts power consumption accordingly in a dynamic manner. It reduces power consumption during periods of low link utilization. Inactive link detection. The power usage adjustment feature automatically reduces power usage when any shut down network device or inactive link is detected. That is, power consumption of the Series can be adjusted according to the link status or the number of active network devices when possible. Cable length detection. The devices equipped with this green feature can automatically detect the length of connected Ethernet cables and adjust power usage accordingly. The shorter the cable length, the less power it consumes. Since the fanless design ensures quiet operation in small office spaces, the GS1510 Series is the perfect solution for small business and SOHO office deployments. The design promotes quieter environments and less heat dissipation, and it offers energy and cost saving properties without affecting the desirable performance, making it an ideal solution for growing businesses and operators.
