Gigabit Metro Ethernet Switch 12-port 10/100/1000 Mbps PoE and 12-port 10/100/1000 Mbps
D-Link’s Gigabit Metro Ethernet Switches are ideal for Metro Ethernet applications, providing 16/24 copper connections on upgraded Gigabit Ethernet ports along with Gigabit SFP ports for improved uplink bandwidth if needed. They also offer resilience against electrical spikes with built-in surge protection, giving you a reliable solution you can count on.
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/ME Series also features D-Link Green Technology that helps automatically save energy. 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/ME Series support an intuitive D-Link Network Assistant Utility and a command line management interface. The D-Link Network Assistant Utility allows customers to discover all D-Link switches 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 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 command line interface enables network administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level.
QoS and Bandwidth Control
The DGS-1100/ME Series supports Auto Surveillance VLAN (ASV), and Auto Voice VLAN, which are best suited for VoIP and video surveillance deployments. Auto Surveillance VLAN consolidates data and surveillance video transmission through a single DGS-1100/ME Series switch, 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 traffic from an IP phone to an assigned VLAN. With higher priority and individual VLAN, these features guarantee the quality and security of VoIP traffic. Bandwidth Control can reserve bandwidth on a per port basis for important functions that require larger bandwidth or might have high priority.
The DGS-1100-24P/ME delivers Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities, making deployment with IP cameras, VoIP phones, and access points much easier. Power cords will become a thing of the past, as the DGS-1100-24P/ME complies with the 802.3af/802.3at standard for PoE and supports a 100 Watt power budget. The 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet ports mean that even highquality video is no problem.
The DGS-1100/ME Series 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.
The DGS-1100/ME Series is equipped with advanced security features such as Static MAC, Storm Control, and IGMP Snooping. Static MAC allows users to create a MAC white list 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.
