L3 Gigabit Stack Multi-Layer Routing Switch
Where to buy


The xStack DGS-3610 series of the D-link’s next generation Layer 3 Gigabit switches delivers performance, fexibility and enhanced security for the MAN (Metropolitan Area Network). Two models are available for selection, the DGS-3610-26 and DGS-3610-26G. Each switch provides 24 Gigabit ports and two optional 10-Gigabit ports in a low-profle rack-mount case. The DGS-3610-26 is equipped with 12 10/100/1000BASE-T and 12 combo 10/100/1000BASE-T/SFP ports, and the DGS-3610-26G supports 12 SFP and 12 combo 10/100/1000BASE-T/SFP ports. The 10/100/1000BASE-T ports provide inexpensive copper Gigabit connection to the local nodes. While the SFP slots and our wide-range of SFP transceivers offer fexible long/medium/short fber connections suitable for FTTX and MAN applications. Two open slots on the back of each switch allow users to install two optional single-port 10-Gigabit XFP modules for copper or fber connections. These 10-Gigabit connections can be used for switch unit stacking, or attachment to a 10-Gigabit backbone or servers. The switches offer advanced L3 features including IPv4/v6 routing, BGP, QoS and ACL fltering. Packet routing and protocol fltering/inspection enable the switch act as a Layer 4 switch.

High Reliability. The DGS-3610 switches support a number of link reliability technologies including Rapid Ether Ring Protocol (RERP). RERP is a network protection mechanism which ensure normal operations without impacting network convergence time. It can rapidly start up the backup link when a link or node on the Ethernet ring is disconnected. Other network resiliency features include Spanning Tree, Rapid Spanning Tree and Multiple Spanning Tree protocol support.

Comprehensive IPv6 Support.
Emerging applications such as Internet-enabled wireless devices, home and industrial appliances, Internet-connected transportations, integrated telephony services, sensors networks, and distributed computing or gaming requirements are further addressed to ensure the continued growth of the Internet. The use of globally unique IPv6 addresses simplifes the mechanisms used for reachability and end-to-end security for network devices. This vital functionality is crucial for applications and services that are driving the demand for IP addresses.

Enterprise Wide Security. Access security is provided through comprehensive policy-based ACL, port security, IP-MAC-Port binding features and Defeat IP Scan. Meanwhile malicious attacks hidden behind control protocols are thwarted to prevent the switch’s CPU from being overwhelmed with redundant tasks and cause performance degradation. The DGS-3610 also supports SSH v2 and SNMP v3 functions to ensure secure management access to switches with authentication and encryption of network management traffc.

QoS & Bandwidth Management. The DGS-3610 supports numerous advanced traffic management options including flow-based bandwidth control and broadcast/multicast storm control. It also supports egress traffc bandwidth control with minimum granularity of 64Kbits. With a combination of Rate Limiting function (applicable to CPE subscribers)and access control-based accounting, the DGS-3610 provides useful functions for carriers that offer services to home users in a Metropolitan Ethernet Network.

Comprehensive Management. A comprehensive set of management features is provided to ensure enterprise wide visibility and control for configuration, access/traffic monitoring and troubleshooting to network administrators. These features are accessible through a CLI, Telnet or SNMP console. RMON monitoring, and complete debug system information, alert information and interface management are also supported.
