D-Link’s DGS-1210 Series Web Smart Switches are the latest generation of switches featuring
D-Link Green Technology. The DGS-1210 Series integrates advanced management as
well as security functions that provide performance and scalability. 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 prioritized 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, while the
DGS-1210-28P/52/52P/52MP feature a smart fan design that powers on after the switch reaches
a certain temperature, saving energy and cutting costs without sacrifiing performance.
Incorporating D-Link Green technology, the DGS-1210 Series switches are capable of powersaving without sacrifiing operational performance or functionality. Link status drastically
reduces power consumption by automatically toggling ports without a link to sleep mode.
The DGS-1210 Series takes the approach to green IT one step further by incorporating a special
chipset with advanced silicon technology for effient use of energy.
Extensive Management and Layer 2 Features
Equipped with a complete lineup 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 flw 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 fielity. Network maintenance features include
loopback detection and cable diagnostics. Loopback detection is used to detect loops created
by a specifi port and automatically shut down the affcted 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 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 Web Smart Switch 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 traff from an IP phone to an assigned VLAN. With higher priority
and individual VLAN, these features guarantee the quality and security of VoIP
traffi The DSCP markings on Ethernet packets enable diffrent levels of service
to be assigned to network traffi 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 traff
floding 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 spoofig prevention, which protects from
attacks on the network that may allow an intruder to snif data frames, modify
traffi or bring traff to a halt altogether by sending fake ARP messages. To
prevent ARP spoofig 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
unauthorized 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
simplifis 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 confiuration and basic setup
of discovered devices, including password changes and fimware 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.
The DGS-1210 Series comes with Ethernet and Gigabit copper ports capable
of connecting to existing Cat5 twisted-pair cables. Additionally, with
its 8/16/24/48 10/100/1000 Mbps plus four 1G SFP ports for the DGS-1210-
20/28/52 models; plus two 1G SFP ports for the DGS-1210-10/10P and 24/48
10/100/1000 Mbps PoE plus four 1G SFP ports for the DGS-1210-52MP/28P/52P
models, the switch can provide a more flxible solution for upstream or
downstream server connections.
