D-Link’s DGS-1100 Series EasySmart Switches provide an affordable solution for SOHOs and Small and Medium Businesses as well as enterprise deployment, such as in branch offices and meeting rooms that require simple network management. Each model comes in a compact desktop-sized metal case and features either 5, 8, 16, or 24 Gigabit ports.
D-Link Green/Power Saving Performance
Compliant with IEEE802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet, these switches consume less energy by cutting down on power consumption when port utilization is low. By deploying EEE devices, users can cut operating costs and even cut down on necessary cooling equipment, helping small and medium-sized businesses stay within their budgets. The DGS-1100 Series also features D-Link Green Technology that helps automatically save energy. The switches automatically detect the length of the connected cables and can adjust power usage for cables shorter than 20 meters. In addition, the switches monitor the link status of every port and will drastically reduce power consumption when a port link is down.
Easy to deploy
The DGS-1100 Series EasySmart Switches support an intuitive SmartConsole Utility and a web-based management interface. The SmartConsole Utility allows customers to discover all switches in the D-Link Smart Switch family within the same L2 network segment. With this utility, users do not need to change the IP address of their PC, and this also makes initial setup of the Smart Switches quick and easy. Switches within the same L2 network segment that are connected to the user’s PC are displayed on-screen for instant access. This allows for extensive switch configuration and basic setup of discovered devices, including password changes and firmware upgrades. The graphic web-based management interface provides a user-friendly interface that enables network administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level.
Surveillance VLAN and Bandwidth Control
The DGS-1100 Series supports Surveillance VLAN for video surveillance deployment. Surveillance VLAN gives video traffic high priority and an individual VLAN, guaranteeing the quality of surveillance traffic through a single DGS-1100 switch, thus sparing businesses the added expenses required for dedicated hardware and facilities. Bandwidth Control can reserve bandwidth on a per port basis for important functions that require larger bandwidth or might have high priority.
These EasySmart Switches feature Loopback Detection and Cable Diagnostics to help network administrators find and solve network problems quickly and easily. Loopback Detection is used to detect loops created by a specific port and automatically shut down the affected port. The Cable Diagnostics feature is designed for network administrators to quickly examine the quality of the copper cables, recognize the cable type, and detect cable errors.
DGS-1100 Series is equipped with advanced security features such as Static MAC, Storm Control, and IGMP Snooping. Static MAC allows users to create a MAC whitelist for specific ports, helping administrators limit network access to authorized devices only. Storm Control monitors broadcast, multicast, or unknown unicast traffic and will start blocking or discarding packets which could flood the network when the defined threshold is exceeded. IGMP Snooping is able to reduce the loading of L3 multicast routers and save bandwidth in network throughput.
