D-Link's DGS-1210 Series Gigabit Smart+ Switch with Fibre Uplinks integrates
advanced management as well as security functions that provide performance
Management options for the switch include SNMP, Web Management, D-Link
Network Assistant Utility and compact command lines.
The DGS-1210 Series uses Auto Voice VLAN, ensuring bandwidth is prioritised
for a smoother voice performance. The DGS-1210-10/10P/20/28 features a
fanless design that allows for quieter operation and helps to extend the
device's lifetime, saving energy and cutting costs without sacrificing
Extensive Management and Layer 2 Features
Equipped with a complete line-up of L2 features, the DGS-1210 Series
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.
The DGS-1210 Series 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 the
DGS-1210 Series Gigabit Smart+ Switch with Fibre Uplinks provides. This
technology consolidates data and surveillance video transmission through a
single DGS-1210 Series, 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 transmission of
conventional network data. The Auto Voice VLAN technology enhances the VoIP
service by automatically placing voice traffic from an IP phone to an
assigned VLAN. With higher priority and individual VLAN, these features
guarantee the quality and security of VoIP traffic. 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 are higher
priority or require a larger bandwidth
Secure your Network
D-Link's innovative Safeguard Engine protects the switches against traffic
flooding caused by virus attacks. The DGS-1210 Series 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 helps to protect the internal IT network. The
DGS-1210 Series includes ARP spoofing prevention, which protects from
attacks on the network that may 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 routes DHCP server packets from
user ports to prevent unauthorised IP assignment.
The DGS-1210 Series 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. It
also simplifies the initial setup by taking switches, within the same L2
network segment, that are connected to the user's PC, and displaying them 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 Series 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.
D-Link Insight will track all the devices connected to the smart switch and list them by MAC, IP and switch port. Insight also provides alerts to notify you when more devices are found on the network. Each client device's operating system can also be fingerprinted.
Simple, automated configuration management creates a backup of the switch settings for easy restore. Return to the last known state or bring a device online without cumbersome configuration.
Always know the status of your network through Insight alerting. Should one of your web smart switches go offline or reboot, you're immediately notified. No more guessing or waiting for an outage report. Configure smart list alerts to inform you when unexpected computers are discovered on the network.
Active compliance monitoring with insight plus
Windows and Mac OS clients are screened by D-Link Insight Plus, which acts as an active security sentry to validate compliance to policies on a client's operating system patch level, firewall, antivirus and anti-spyware. Reports and alerts provide you with the data you need to properly determine status and access privileges.
