The DGS-3000-10TC is part of the Layer 2 family of D-Link's managed switch product line that provides wired Gigabit speed access for metro and campus networks. The DGS-3000-10TC is designed as a 1U rackmount case suitable for enterprise access or service provider telecom cabinets, maximizing network performance without compromising on reliability and security. Green technology decreases energy costs by reducing power consumption, without compromising on performance.
All Ethernet ports of the DGS-3000-10TC support 6 kV surge/lightning protection. This feature protects the switch from power surges due to lightning or improper electrical wiring when the Ethernet cables are exposed in open spaces, such as in older buildings. The switch also provides an additional power connector for connection to D-Link's DPS-200 Redundant Power Supply, or to a stable, protected 12VDC backup power source in case of a main power failure. For Ethernet link fail-over, the DGS-3000-10TC supports 802.1D Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), and 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), to allow automatic backup of bridge paths. Using these features, the transmission and reception of frames can be guaranteed even during a network failure.
Solid security with high availability
The DGS-3000-10TC offers various user/device authentication features including 802.1X, Web-based Access Control (WAC) and MAC-based Access Control (MAC). The clientless WAC and MAC functions provide convenience for IT managers implementing user/device authentication into a network. They allow administrators to control security without installing client software on each network device, which is especially important for devices on which the software cannot be installed. For a greater security level, the DGS-3000-10TC also supports compound authentication, letting IT managers choose between multiple authentication methods for any single device. Selectable host-based authentication and authorization provide the option to finely control access by each device in the network.
The DGS-3000-10TC is IPv6 ready and supports various IPv6 functions such as MLD Snooping, WAC, IPv6 ACL/QoS, and IMPBv6 to ensure seamless integration of next generation networks. The DGS-3000-10TC is certified IPv6 Ready Logo Phase 2, which guarantees interoperability for IPv6 environments.
Easy maintenance and troubleshooting
The DGS-3000-10TC features rich Operations, Administration, and Management (OAM) features to help network administrators reduce the burden of maintenance and troubleshooting. Cable diagnostics display the status of Ethernet cables and locate the position of cable errors remotely, helping cut onsite support costs. 802.1ag Connectivity Fault Management (CFM) provides administrators with convenient tools to monitor and troubleshoot end-to-end service networks. This allows service providers to check connectivity, isolate network issues, and identify the affected customers.
Deliver triple play services
The DGS-3000-10TC features full L2 multicast functions, including IGMP/MLD snooping, fast leave, and filtering. With L2 multicast support, the switch is ideal for use with IPTV services. Host-based IGMP/MLD Snooping provides service to multiple IPTV subscribers per physical interface and ISM VLAN registers multicast streams in a multicast VLAN to save bandwidth on the network backbone. The ISM VLAN profiles allow users to bind or replace the channel profiles of subscription ports quickly and easily. The DGS-3000-10TC also supports IGMP authentication, which can prevent rogue IPTV subscriptions by authenticating set top boxes as well as channel switching to secure Internet Service Provider (ISP) revenues.
