24-Port Gigabit SwitchEOL
D-Link's next generation Web Smart Gigabit switch series blends plug-and-play simplicity with exceptional performance and reliability for small and medium-sized business (SMB) networking. With 3 models to choose from, this series provides flexible choices for different network size requirements. All models are housed in a new style rack-mount metal case with easy-to-view front-panel diagnostic LEDs, and provide advance features including up to 4 combo SFP fiber connections, network security, traffic segmentation, QoS and versatile management.
A Switch for Each Business Size. Choices of 16, 24 and 48 copper Gigabit ports are available for selection. Supporting the Cat. 5 copper twisted-pair cables with auto-detection of MDI/MDIX, these switches bring inexpensive and easy Gigabit connection to the desktops. Each switch provides 2 or 4 combo SFP slots for flexible connection to a fiber backbone or servers.
Extensive Layer 2 Features. Implemented as complete L2 devices, these switches include functions such as Jumbo frame support, IGMP snooping, port mirroring, Spanning Tree, port trunks and 802.3x Flow Control to enhance performance and network resiliency.
Traffic Segmentation and QoS. The switches support 802.1Q VLAN T agging for traffic segmentation by groups to enhance network security and performance. They also support 802.1p Priority Queues, enabling users to run bandwidth-sensitive applications such as streaming multimedia and VoIP on the network. These functions allow the switches to work seamlessly with managed VLAN and 802.1p traffic on the network.
Network Security. The switches provide MAC address filters screen access to the network. They support 802.1x port-based authentication, allowing the network to be configured with external RADIUS servers. Additional features like D-Link Safeguard Engine protect the switches against traffic flooding caused by virus/worm outbreaks.
Versatile Management. Switch configuration and management is through the SmartConsole Utility or a web-based GUI. SmartConsole is an easy way to access the switch from a local PC; users do not have to type in any IP address or subnet, and all switches connected on the network are displayed on the screen for instant access. The web-based GUI allows switch access from any location on the network or from a remote site, using a web-browser. It allows extensive switch configuration setting, which can be backed up for duplication in other switches.
In addition, users can also use the built-in MIB to poll the switches for information about their status and send traps of abnormal events. MIB support allows users to integrate the switches with other third-party devices for management in an SNMP environment.
