Copy edit[edit]

Performed requested copy edit. Updated out-of-date text. Clarified that this is an article about a trademark, not a generally used term or an industry standard term. Added references where I could find them. Removed unsubstantiated claims.

I think it doesn't quite read like an advertisement now, but I'll leave removing that tag to someone else.

The article is, however, mostly sourced from D-Link press releases and presentations. Leaving aside the ref I added for Ethernet cable length limits, the only third-party ref I found was in IndustryWeek, and that article pretty much blatantly parrots D-Link's press releases. If reliable third-party sources can't be found to back some of the claims, and to add weight to the idea that this is a notable topic, I'd support a RfD. // Macwhiz (talk) 01:54, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Broadcom or D-Link?[edit]

Lead says this is a D-Link technology. First section seems to say it is Broadcom's. Can someone clarify this? --Kvng (talk) 03:34, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Broadcom makes the switch chips D-Link uses in their switches. I've added a line, and a source, to clarify. // ⌘macwhiz (talk) 04:14, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
