Targeting small and medium sized businesses, the DES-1210-28 provides functionality, security, and manageability for a fraction of the standard cost of ownership.
Capable of conserving power without sacrificing operational performance or functionality by using D-Link Green 3.0 technology. Using the Energy Efficient Ethernet standard, the network will automatically decrease the power usage when traffic is low with no setup required. For environments not fully supporting the standard, these switches offer advanced power-saving settings including port shutoff and standby, LED shutoff, and system hibernation based on custom time profiles
All configurations can be made through a Web interface regardless of the host PC’s operating system. Furthermore, the web UI contains ten language options to make operations more straightforward. In the initial installation, the D-Link Network Assistant Utility will automatically discover all D-Link Smart switches in the network, allowing administrators to assign IP addresses and subnet masks quickly. It also allows simultaneous firmware upgrades to multiple switches, saving a great deal of time
Auto Surveillance Auto Surveillance VLAN and Voice VLAN
Auto Surveillance VLAN consolidates data and surveillance video transmission through the network, sparing businesses the expense of maintaining dedicated facilities. ASV also protects the quality of real time video by grouping IP surveillance devices on a single high priority VLAN. This ensures that surveillance video streams will not be affected when ordinary data traffic is at a high level. Similarly, the Auto Voice VLAN guarantees clear quality and efficient transmission for all voice communication
Gigabit Ethernet Ports
Supports 4 Gigabit ports – two are dedicated 10/100/1000Mbps copper (RJ45), while the other two are Gigabit ‘combo’ ports and can be used for either copper (RJ45) or SFP optical.
Extensive Layer 2 Features
Equipped with a complete lineup of L2 features, the DES-1210-28 switch include IGMP Snooping, Port Mirroring, Spanning Tree, and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). The IEEE 802.3x Flow Control function allows servers to directly connect to the switch for fast, reliable data transfer. At 2000 Mbps Full Duplex, the Gigabit ports provide high-speed data pipes to servers with minimum data transfer loss. Network maintenance features include Loopback Detection and Cable Diagnostics. Loopback Detection is used to detect loops created by a specific port and automatically shut down the affected port. The Cable Diagnostic feature designed primarily for administrators and customer service representatives, can rapidly discover the type of error and determine the cable quality.
Secure your Network
D-Link’s innovative Safeguard Engine protects the switch against traffic flooding caused by virus attacks. The switch also support 802.1X port-based authentication, allowing the network clients to be authenticated through external RADIUS servers. In addition, the Access Control List (ACL) feature enhances network security and protects the network by screening traffic from illegal MAC or IP addresses. ARP Spoofing Prevention prevents malicious intruders from sending massive fake ARP messages through a manipulated source. This protects important data from being stolen by Man-in-the-Middle attacks, and prevents wasting CPU cycles on these packets. For added security, the DHCP Server Screening feature blocks rogue DHCP server packets from user ports to prevent unauthorized IP assignment.
