As well as having a sleek aluminium alloy design, the multi-coloured LED light bar makes the DMS-106XT a great addition to any modern space. The DMS-106XT features five 2.5G ports to connect all your high-speed devices, such as your Wi-Fi 6 Router, Access Points, or your Gaming PC, and an unrestricted, ultra-fast 10G (that’s 10-Gigabit) connection enabling high-bandwidth network uplinks to support such devices as a Home Media Server or a Network-Attached Storage (NAS) device. All of which makes the DMS-106XT ideal as the core switch in a modern high-speed home networking setup.

The DMS-106XT also support Turbo Mode, which provides up to 40% more speeds, and enables port-based QOS allowing you to set the priority for which devices get even more throughput when your home network is carrying lots of data-intensive traffic.
