A Green device can tell if there is activity on each individual LAN port. If a 16-port switch only has 10 active devices connected to it, power is saved because no traffic is routed to the inactive ports.
The switch is able to detect the distance of the connected device and adjusts its power accordingly. For example, if you have a Green switch a computer connected to a 10-meter cable will consume less power than a computer connected to a 100-meter cable.
The device will enter sleep/standby mode when the connected devices are powered down and no active links are detected. This helps save energy consumption during extended periods of network inactivity, such as nights, weekends and holidays.
