Incorporating D-Link Green technology, the DGS-1210-28 switch is capable of powersaving
without sacrificing operational performance or functionality. Link status drastically
reduces power consumption by automatically toggling ports without a link to sleep mode.
The DGS-1210-28 takes the approach to green IT one step further by incorporating a special
chipset with advanced silicon technology for efficient use of energy.
The DGS-1210-28 comes with Ethernet and Gigabit copper ports capable
of connecting to existing Cat5 twisted-pair cables. Additionally, with
its 24 10/100/1000 Mbps plus four 1G SFP ports for the DGS-1210-
28 the switch can provide a more flexible solution for upstream or
downstream server connections.
Extensive Management and Layer 2 Features
Equipped with a complete lineup of L2 features, the DGS-1210-28 includes IGMP snooping,
port mirroring, spanning tree protocol and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). The IEEE
802.3x flow control function allows servers to directly connect to the switch for fast, reliable
data transfers. At 2000 Mbps full duplex, the Gigabit ports provide high-speed data pipes to
servers with minimum impact to data transfer fidelity. Network maintenance features include
loopback detection and cable diagnostics. Loopback detection is used to detect loops created
by a specific port and automatically shut down the affected port. The cable diagnostic feature,
designed primarily for administrators and customer service representatives, can rapidly discover
errors and determine the cable quality, allowing hassle free diagnostics and maintenance.
QoS, Bandwidth Control
The DGS-1210-28 supports Auto Surveillance VLAN (ASV), and Auto Voice
VLAN, which are best suited for video surveillance and VoIP deployments. Auto
Surveillance VLAN is a new, industry-leading technology that consolidates
surveillance video transmission and data through a single Web Smart Switch,
thus sparing businesses the expense of dedicated hardware and facilities.
ASV also ensures the quality of real-time video for monitoring and control
without compromising the flow of conventional network data. The Auto
Voice VLAN technology enhances the VoIP service by automatically routing
voice traffic from an IP phone to an assigned VLAN. With higher priority
and a dedicated VLAN, these features guarantee the quality and security of
VoIP traffic. Furthermore, the DSCP markings on Ethernet packets enable
different levels of service to be assigned to network traffic. As a result, these
voice and video packets take precedence over other packets. In addition,
with bandwidth control, network administrators can reserve bandwidth for
important functions that might require higher bandwidth or priority.
Secure Your Network
D-Link’s innovative Safeguard Engine protects against traffic flooding caused
by virus attacks. The DGS-1210-28 also supports 802.1x port-based
authentication, allowing the network to be authenticated through external
RADIUS servers. In addition, the Access Control List (ACL) feature enhances
network security and protects the internal IT network. The DGS-1210-28P
supports Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) Spoofing Prevention, which
prevents the network from being compromised by hackers using spoofed
ARPs that pretend to be trusted PCs, servers, routers, or gateways. For added
security, DHCP Server Screening filters rogue DHCP server packets from user
ports to prevent unauthorized IP assignment.
The DGS-1210-28 provides a D-Link Network Assistant Utility that enables
administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level. The
D-Link Network Assistant Utility allows customers to easily discover multiple
D-Link Web Smart Switches within the same L2 network segment. With this
utility, users do not need to change the IP address of their PC, and the initial
setup of the switches will be greatly simplified. Switches within the same L2
network segment that are connected to the user’s PC are displayed on-screen
for instant access. This allows extensive switch configuration and basic setup
of discovered devices, including password changes and firmware upgrades.
The DGS-1210-28 also supports D-View 6.0 and Compact Command Line
Interface (CLI) through Telnet. D-View 6.0 is a network management system
that allows for the central management of critical network characteristics
such as availability, reliability, resilience, and security.
