20-Port Gigabit Web Smart Switch
The DGS- 1210-20 is part of the latest generation of D-Link Web Smart switches. Equipped with 16 10/100/1000 Mbps ports, and 4 10/100/1000SFP ports, the DGS-1210-28 integrates advanced management and security functions for enhanced performance and scalability. Management options include SNMP, Web Management, SmartConsole Utility, and Compact Command Line for easy deployment. The DES-1210-20 provides a complete and affordable solution that is ideal for small and medium businesses and the enterprise edge.
– 16x 10/100/1000BASE-T Ports
– 4x 10/100/1000 SFP Ports
– Loopback Detection automatically disables a port when a loop is detected
– Auto Surveillance VLAN (ASV)
– Safeguard Engine protects against traffic flooding
– Energy Saving
Incorporating D-Link Green technology, the DGS-1210-20 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-1210-20 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-1210-20 comes with Ethernet and Gigabit copper ports capable of connecting to existing Cat5 twisted-pair cables. Additionally, with its 16x 10/100/1000 Mbps plus 4x 10/100/1000 SFP ports for the DGS-1210- 20 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-1210-20 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-1210-20 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-1210-20 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-1210-20 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-1210-20 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.
