The DGS-3200-24 provides a new generation of intelligence and defense in a compact, smart fan form, providing quieter, cooler performance for any office that requires silence.
The DGS-3200-24 Managed Gigabit Switch offers a new generation of intelligence and defense with high performance, flexibility and robust security. This switch secures your network from viruses using its Access Control List (ACL), IP-MAC-Port Binding (IMPB) and Safeguard Engine™ function.
The DGS-3200-24 supports twenty Gigabit ports with four combo SFP ports and comes with a smart fan feature that has heat sensors and a fan that maintains the temperature of the device for optimal performance.
The DGS-3200-24, compared to any other model, is ideal for an office environment or circumstances that require silence.
D-Link Green™ Technology
D-Link® is striving to take the lead in developing innovative and power-saving technology without sacrificing operational performance or functionality. The DGS-3200-24 implements D-Link Green™ technology, which includes a power-saving mode to reduce power consumption and heat dissipation. If a port does not have a cable link or the connected device is powered down, the port automatically goes into “sleep mode”, reducing power usage and saving energy.
The xStack DGS-3200-24 offers a complete list of endpoint security features, bringing confidence and assurance to your network. It executes firm network security and comes with user-based identity control by implementing host-based 802.1X Authentication/Authorization, along with clientless Web-based Access Control (WAC) and MAC-based Access Control (MAC) for easy deployment. The incorporation of sophisticated ACL user-defined functionality secures your network against viruses and worms while innovative IMPB prevents ARP spoofing and man-in-the-middle attacks by recognizing malicious users who falsify their IP or MAC address, assuring administrators that the IP information on the syslog server or firewall log is always correct. Other security features such as port security and traffic segmentation provide granular control to business environments, allowing administrators to enhance network security.
For clients with Windows® XP SP3, Windows Vista® or servers with Windows Server® 2008, the xStack DGS-3200-24 works in conjunction with the Microsoft® Network Access Protection (NAP) as part of an ecosystem that enforces compliance with network health policies. The switch will grant access only when network hosts comply with IT security policies such as up-to-date anti-virus signatures and operating system patches. This prevents an infected client or server from gaining access and further contaminating the network. D-Link combines NAP with D-Link ZoneDefense™ technology for joint security that provides admission control and real-time defense. The D-Link ZoneDefense technology allows businesses to integrate the switch with a D-Link NetDefend™ firewall to implement full coverage with a proactive security architecture.
IPv6 and IPv4 Technology
The xStack DGS-3200-24 provides current IPv4 networks with a simple migration path to IPv6 and protects your investment for future network upgrades when greater security and larger addressing becomes necessary. The IPv6 multicast host, the latest in protocol technology, enables maximum hardware performance. MLD snooping enhances efficiency in selective distribution by forwarding multicast data to receiving ports, rather than flooding all ports in a VLAN. Features such as an ACL that is based on IPv6 Traffic Class, as well as QoS also based on IPv6, provide faster and more efficient service. IPv6 Management supports Web, Telnet, and SNMP.
To enhance network resilience, the xStack DGS-3200-24 provides Spanning Tree protocols 802.1D, 802.1w, and 802.1s for redundant bridge paths. Link Aggregation provides aggregated bandwidth between switches or servers to increase redundancy for higher availability. Quality of Service (QoS) incorporates multilayer functions that support eight queues including 802.1p priority and packet classification based on TOS, DSCP, MAC, IP, VLAN ID and L4 TCP/UDP ports, enabling smooth Internet voice, video and streaming media applications. The switches also provide a Safeguard Engine™ for network protection to increase network reliability, serviceability, and availability.
Network administrators can define throughput levels for each port to allocate its essential bandwidth. Broadcast Storm Control and flow-based Bandwidth Control can reduce the level of damage from virus attacks or P2P applications to the network.
Single IP Management
To simplify and speed up your management tasks, multiple switches can be configured, monitored and maintained from any workstation running a web browser through one unique IP address. This virtual stack is managed as a single object, having all units maintained by one IP address. Up to 32 D-Link switches, each supporting Single IP Management, can be managed under a single IP address.
