The DGS-1210-10/10P/20/28 features a fanless design that allows for quieter operation and helps to extend the device's lifetime. While the DGS-1210-28P/52/52P feature a smart fan design that powers on after the switch reaches a certain temperature, saving energy and cutting costs without sacrificing performance.
The DGS-1210 series provides 48 10/100/1000 Mbps ports plus 4 SFP ports.
D-Link Green technology
D-Link Green device is about providing eco-friendly alternatives without compromising performance. D-Link Green technology to reduce energy consumption on DGS-1210 series such as shutting down a port, or turning off some LED indicators, or adjusting the power usage according to the Ethernet cable connected to it.
Extensive L2 features
Implemented as complete L2 devices, the switch include functions such as IGMP snooping, port mirroring, spanning tree, 802.3ad LACP and loopback detection to enhance performance and network resiliency.
Traffic segmentation, QoS and auto surveillance VLAN
The switch supports 802.1Q VLAN standard tagging to enhance network security and performance. The switch also supports 802.1p priority queues, enabling users to run bandwidth-sensitive applications such as streaming multimedia by prioritizing that traffic in network. These functions allow switch to work seamlessly with VLAN and 802.1p traffic in the network. Auto surveillance VLAN will automatically place the video traffic from pre-defined IP surveillance devices to an assigned VLAN with higher priority, so it can be separated from normal data traffic. Asymmetric VLAN is implemented in the switch for a more efficient use of shared resources, such as server or gateway devices.
D-Link's excellent safeguard engine function protects the switch against traffic flooding caused by virus attacks. Additional features like 802.1x port-based authentication provide access control of the network with external RADIUS servers. ACL is a powerful tool to screen unwanted IP or MAC traffic. Storm control can help to keep the network from being overwhelmed by abnormal traffic. Port security is another simple but useful authentication method to maintain the network device integrity.
The D-Link web smart switch provides growing business with a simple and easy management of their network, using an intuitive smart console utility or a web-based management interface that allows administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level. The smart console easily allows customers to discover multiple D-Link web smart switch with the same L2 network segment connected to the user's local PC. With this utility, users do not need to change the IP address of the PC and provide easy initial settings of the smart switch. The switch within the same L2 network segment connected to the user's local PC are displayed on the screen for instant access. It allows extensive switch configuration settings, and basic configuration of discovered devices, such as a password change or firmware upgrade.
