Switch DGS-3710-12C is a line of high-performance multi-layer switches 2+. The switch features 12 ports Combo 1000Base-T / SFP Gigabit Ethernet. Gigabit ports of the device can be used to connect the access layer switches or servers. Availability of SFP-ports allows for the switch in networks MAN (Metropolitan Area Networks) using fiber-optic communication lines.
Using a network provider
Switch DGS-3710-12C in a compact 1U enclosure size for mounting in a rack, supports operating temperatures up to 65˚C. Furthermore, for ease of installation, troubleshooting and maintenance, all the access connection located on the front panel. Have a modular cooling system and dust filter allows you to replace the damaged fan or clean the device from dust, without removing the switch from the rack itself or telecommunications closet. The result is greatly simplified network maintenance and minimizing downtime.
Switch DGS-3710-12C is ideal for users who require high availability and maximum uptime. The switch supports load sharing between the two power supplies (AC / DC) to provide redundancy and maintain continuous availability in the event of failure of one of the power supplies. The switches also support functions 802.1D Spanning Tree (STP), 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree (RSTP) and 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree (MSTP), Loopback Detection (LBD), and protection from broadcast storms that enhance network resilience. Thanks to the G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) during crash recovery takes about 50 ms. For load balancing and fault tolerance by using multiple switches, DGS-3710-12C supports dynamic 802.3ad Link Aggregation Port Trunking.
Enhanced security features
Switch DGS-3710-12C supports the latest security features such as multi-level access control lists (ACL), protection from the storm, and IP-MAC-Port Binding with DHCP Snooping. Function IP-MAC-Port Binding allows administrators to bind IP-addresses and MAC address of the user to a specific port number on the switch, thereby prohibiting the user to change the network settings.
Moreover, thanks to the DHCP Snooping, the switch automatically detects pairs of IP / MAC-addresses issued by the server, DHCP-tracking packages and storing them in a "white list" IMPB. These features play a significant role in keeping the network secure. Built-in D-Link Safeguard Engine identifies and prioritization of packets to be processed directly by the CPU of the switch, in order to prevent malicious attacks and neutralize the effects of spurious traffic to the switch CPU. In addition, DGS-3710-12C support List for access control (ACL). This functionality enables administrators to restrict access to network services and does not affect the performance of the switch.
Identity Driven Network Policies
Switch DGS-3710-12C support mechanisms such as the authentication 802.1X, Access Control Web-based interface (WAC), access control MAC-based (MAC) or a combination thereof, which greatly expands the possibilities of access control. After authentication, individual policies such as belonging VLAN, QoS policies, and ACL rules can be assigned to each host. In addition, the switch supports Microsoft® NAP. With these advanced features for authentication and authorization switch reduces the risk of viruses and malicious attacks.
Traffic Management for Triple Play services
This switch provides a set of features multi-level QoS / CoS, to ensure that critical network services such as VoIP, video conference, IPTV and IP-surveillance are served with proper priority. "The three colors of the" Traffic Shaping and provide guaranteed bandwidth for data services in the case of a high network load.
Thanks to the support functions of multicast Layer 2/3 switch provides the opportunity to work with IPTV-services, enjoys a growing demand in the market. IGMP / MLD Snooping allows host-based connection of multiple customer multicast group to a single network interface. When you use the ISM VLAN multicast traffic for the purpose of efficient spending of bandwidth transferred in a separate Vlan. ISM VLAN profiles allow users to quickly and easily assign / change the preset settings on ports multicast subscribers.
For the implementation of the Agreement on the level of quality of service SLA (Service Level Agreement), service providers must reduce the mean time to repair performance device (Mean Time to Repair - MTTR) and increase service availability. A functional Ethernet OAM contributes to solving these problems and allows service providers to ensure the best quality of service. Switches DGS-3710-12C support standardized OAM, including IEEE 802.3ah, IEEE802.1ag and ITU-T Y.1731. Connectivity Fault Management (CFM) provides monitoring functions, and troubleshooting networks Ethernet, allowing you to control the connectivity, isolate network issues, and identify customers affected by network issues.
Switch DGS-3710-12C is fully compatible with the next-generation networks based on IPv6 protocol, and supports remote management of IPv6 through telnet, HTTP or SNMP. In addition, the switch supports static routing between different VLAN on the basis of IPv6.
To organize secure IPv6-network switches use IPv6 ACL and IPv6 RADIUS to protect the network from unauthorized IPv6-customers.
Connecting to a high-speed line
DGS-3710-12C can be used as an access layer switch with features such as VLAN translation and Selective QinQ, allowing, for example, create a VPN-tunnel Layer 2 through the backbone network to support MPLS.
