Save Energy, Save Money
D-Link Green technology conserves energy by powering down unused ports, cutting operational costs while reducing your carbon footprint.
Advanced management functions make for a truly versatile series of switches that integrate performance and scalability.
Fully IPv6 compatible and ready for enterprise deployment, giving you a head start on the next Internet standards evolution.
Incorporating D-Link’s Green technology, the DGS-1210-52 switch is capable of saving power without sacrificing operational performance or functionality. Link status drastically reduces power consumption by automatically toggling ports without a link into a sleep mode. The DGS-1210-52 takes the approach to green IT one step further by incorporating a special chipset with advanced silicon technology for efficient use of energy.
Extensive Management and Layer 2 Features
The DGS-1210-52 comes equipped with a complete lineup of L2 features, including IGMP snooping, port mirroring, Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), 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 significantly speeds up troubleshooting by automatically detecting and shutting down switching loops.The cable diagnostics feature, designed primarily for administrators and customer service representatives, determines the cable quality and quickly discovers errors, allowing for hassle-free diagnostics and maintenance.
Quality of Service and Bandwidth Control
The DGS-1210-52 supports Auto Surveillance VLAN (ASV) and Auto Voice VLAN, which are best suited for VoIP and video surveillance deployments. Auto Surveillance VLAN is a new, industry-leading technology that consolidates data and surveillance video transmission through a single DGS-1210-52 switch, thus sparing businesses the expense of dedicated hardware and facilities. ASV also ensures quality real-time video monitoring and control without compromising the transmission of conventional network data. Auto Voice VLAN technology enhances the VoIP service by automatically placing voice traffic from IP phones to a designated VLAN. With higher priority and an individual VLAN, these features guarantee the quality and security of VoIP traffic. The Differentiated Service Code Point (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 require higher priority or more bandwidth.
Secure your Network
D-Link’s innovative Safeguard Engine protects the switches against traffic flooding caused by malicious attacks. The DGS-1210-52 supports 802.1X port-based authentication, allowing the network to be authenticated through external RADIUS servers. The Access Control List (ACL) feature enhances network security and helps to protect the internal IT network. The DGS-1210-52 also features Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) spoofing prevention, which provides protection from attacks on the network that could allow an intruder to sniff data frames, modify traffic, or bring traffic to a halt altogether by sending fake ARP messages. To prevent ARP spoofing attacks, the switch uses packet control ACLs to block invalid packets that contain fake ARP messages. For added security, the DHCP server screening feature filters DHCP replies on unauthorized ports to prevent them from being assigned an IP address.
The DGS-1210-52 comes with the D-Link Network Assistant (DNA) utility that enables administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level. The D-Link Network Assistant utility furthermore allows customers to easily discover multiple D-Link Smart Managed Switches within the same L2 network segment and display them on-screen for instant access. With this utility, users do not need to change the IP address of their PC. This allows for simultaneous configuration and basic setup of all discovered devices, including password changes and firmware upgrades. The DGS-1210-52 also supports D-View 6.0 and 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.
The DGS-1210-52 comes with Ethernet and Gigabit copper ports capable of connecting to existing Cat. 5 twisted-pair cables. With a large variety of port configurations, the DGS-1210-52 offers businesses a wide range of options, including PoE support and SFP ports, to build and expand a flexible and adaptive network that meets the network requirements of today and the future.
