Gigabit Managed Switches
The DGS-1210/ME Series Gigabit Managed Switches provide a diverse range of Gigabit port densities to accommodate various enterprise and public sector connectivity needs. With optional PoE to conveniently power edge devices, SFP ports to extend network connectivity, and advanced Layer 2 functionalities, the DGS-1210/ME Series is ideal for any enterprise access layer or large multi-site deployment and allows businesses to build a more secure and efficient network with advanced network security features and QoS.
Flexible Hardware Design
Wide range of port and media types, including 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 ports, 100/1000 Mbps GbE/SFP combo ports, and 100/1000 Mbps SFP ports.
High Switching Capacity and PoE Budget
Up to 104 Gbps switching capacity with a maximum PoE budget up to 370W.
Layer 2 with Layer 3 Lite features
Equipped with a complete lineup of L2 features, and supports IP interfaces, ARP, IPv6 neighbor discovery (ND) and default routing.
D-Link’s innovative Safeguard Engine™ protects the switches against traffic flooding caused by malicious attacks.
Simple management through user-friendly web configuration or command line interface (CLI) via Telnet or SSH for ease-of-use.
The DGS-1210/ME Series Gigabit Managed Switches come in a variety of port setups, including Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 and SFP ports. The DGS-1210-10P/ME, DGS-1210-28P/ME and DGS-1210-52MP/ME switches feature Power over Ethernet (PoE), allowing compatible devices to be installed and powered in remote locations without immediate access to power outlets.
Efficient and Resilient Networking
For mission critical environments, the DGS-1210/ME Series Gigabit Managed Switches support IEEE 802.1D 2004 edition, 802.1w, and 802.1s Spanning Tree Protocols (STP). The Spanning Tree Protocol allows the switches to participate in Spanning Tree topology, providing an alternative Layer 2 path in the event of a network failover. The switches also support IEEE 802.3ad link aggregation, which enables multiple ports to be grouped to form a single virtual port, increasing bandwidth and redundancy for higher availability. This series furthermore features IEEE 802.1p Quality of Service (QoS), allowing for real-time traffic classification into Weighted Round Robin (WRR) and strict priority levels mapped to 8 queues. Advanced traffic classification parameters allow the network to be tuned for flexible configurations for specific multimedia applications such as VoIP or IPTV.
Traffic & Bandwidth Control
Integrated bandwidth control allows network administrators to define the throughput levels for ingress and egress bandwidth. It provides a minimum granularity of 64 Kbps for ingress port and flow-based bandwidth control, and a minimum granularity of 64 Kbps for egress queue bandwidth. The DGS-1210/ME Series also supports traffic control, which optimizes performance by dropping packets when exceeding a set threshold, while port mirroring helps administrators facilitate traffic diagnostics and track network performance. The DGS-1210/ME Series also provides IGMP snooping with IGMP authentication to prune multicast traffic and to optimize available bandwidth.
A user-friendly web interface gives administrators access to advanced management features such as DHCP auto-configuration. This enables switches to load their configuration from a TFTP server once they have been assigned an IP address, allowing central management of device configurations. The switches support Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP), which advertises the device’s capabilities and identity to the local network, allowing administrators to better manage their network topology. Each port also supports cable diagnostics, which can be used to troubleshoot cable length and functionality problems remotely, resulting in lower management overheads.
The DGS-1210/ME Series features a full set of L2 multicast functions, including IGMP snooping, IGMP filtering, fast leave, and multicast traffic configuration for specific ports. With L2 multicast support, the DGS-1210/ME Series is ready and capable of handling growing IPTV applications. Host-based IGMP/MLD snooping allows for multiple multicast subscribers per physical interface, and ISM VLAN sends multicast streams in a multicast VLAN, saving bandwidth on the backbone. Additionally, ISM VLAN profiles allow users to bind or replace the predefined multicast registration information to subscriber ports quickly and easily.
Security & Authentication
The DGS-1210/ME Series supports IEEE 802.1X port-based/host-based access control, guest VLAN, and RADIUS/TACACS+ authentication for strict access control to the network. The IP-MAC-Port Binding (IMPB) feature allows administrators to associate a source IP address with a designated MAC address and also offers the flexibility to define the port number to enhance user access control. The built-in D-Link Safeguard Engine™ protects the CPU from broadcast, multicast, and unicast flooding by automatically trapping packets and logging events in these situations. In addition, the Access Control List (ACL) feature enhances network security and switch performance.
