2 x 10GBase-T + 2 x SFP+ ports for  stacking and connection to the network core
Physically stack up to 8 switches with a total of 80G stacking bandwidth.

Designed for Wi‑Fi 6

Multi-Gigabit 2.5G ports on the DGS-1520 Series PoE switches eliminate potential bottlenecks when connecting to Wi-Fi 6 access points capable of Gigabit+ wireless speeds.

*For DGS-1520-28MP & DGS-1520-52MP only

Zero‑Touch Provisioning

For multi-site network expansion, the latest firmware and network configurations can be downloaded onto the DGS-1520 Series switches without the need for on-site IT personnel, for rapid and effortless deployment.

Advanced L2 and L3 Functionalities

Advanced software features such as selective Q-in-Q, VRRP, RIP and OSPF allows businesses to adapt to changes in their network. For those with expanding network requirements and bandwidth demands, the DGS-1520 Series is a highly cost-effective upgrade option to add 10 Gigabit connectivity to the network infrastructure.

Guarantee Uptime with Power Redundancy

For a truly resilient network, connect up to four DGS-1520 switches* to the optional redundant power supply (DPS-520). Should the internal power supply unexpectedly fail on any of the connected switches, your network will be unaffected, allowing the business to continue as usual.

*DGS-1520-28 and DGS-1520-52 only

Flexible Hybrid Stacking

Stack up to eight DGS-1520 switches using both copper 10GBASE-T and/or fibre SFP+ ports. The hybrid stacking support adds flexibility as well as lowering the cost of cabling by using copper instead of all fibre.
