The Web Smart Switch is designed to provide SMB users with complete control over their
network. With Ethernet and Gigabit copper ports capable of connecting to existing CAT5/5E/6
twisted-pair cables, these switches eliminate the need for expensive network re-building. The
DES-1210-28 allows for flexible connections to a network backbone or server. Additionally,
all ports support auto-negotiation of MDI/MDIX crossover, eliminating the need for crossover
cables or uplink ports.
Extensive Layer 2 Features
Equipped with a complete lineup of L2 features, these switches include IGMP Snooping, Port
Mirroring, Spanning Tree, and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). IEEE 802.3x Flow
Control allows servers to directly connect to the switch for reliable data transfer. Network
maintenance features include Loopback Detection and Cable Diagnostics. Loopback Detection
is used to detect loops created by a specific port and automatically shuts down the affected
port. Cable Diagnostics allow network administrators to quickly examine the quality of the
copper cables and also determine the type of cable error.
QoS, Bandwidth Control
The DES-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 DES-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 DES-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 DES-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 DES-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.
