D-Link’s DGS-1100 Series provide an affordable solution for SOHOs and Small and Medium Businesses as well as enterprise deployment, such as in branch offices and meeting rooms that require simple network management. Most models comes in a compact desktop-sized metal case and features a wide selection of Gigabit port configurations with optional Gigabit fibre uplink ports. There are 4 switches in the series supporting Power-over-Ethernet with 2 of the switches in the offering high-power-budget PoE for businesses looking to power VoIP phones, wireless access points or network cameras. The 10-port DGS-1100-10MP supports up to 30W on eight ports with a power budget of 130W, whereas the DGS-1100-26MP provides 24 PoE-enabled ports, a power budget of 370W, and all PoE-enabled ports supports up to 30W. Advanced management features, diagnostic and troubleshooting tools, and energy efficient technologies provide a flexible solution to suit your networking requirements.
The DGS-1100 Series supports an intuitive D-Link Network Assistant Utility and a web-based management interface. The D-Link Network Assistant Utility allows customers to discover all switches in the D-Link Smart Managed Switch family within the same L2 network segment. With this utility, users do not need to change the IP address of their PC, which also makes the initial setup of the Smart Managed 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 graphic web-based management interface provides a user-friendly interface that enables network administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level.
The DGS-1100 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 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 have high priority.
The DGS-1100 Series features 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, recognise the cable type, and detect cable errors.
DGS-1100 Series is equipped with advanced security features such as Static MAC, Storm Control, and IGMP Snooping. Static MAC allows users to create a MAC whitelist for specific ports, helping administrators limit network access to authorised 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.
The DGS-1100-08P/24P/10MP/26MP provide support for Power over Ethernet (PoE), reducing deployment time for IP cameras, VoIP phones, and access points. Dedicated power adapters are no longer required, as the DGS-1100-24P/10MP/26MP comply with IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at PoE standards and provide up to 30 watts per port. The DGS-1100-08P complies with the 802.3af standard and provides up to 15.4 watts per por.
