The DES-1210 series comes with Ethernet able to connect to the existing network ports Cat.5 ports. In addition, the last 2 or 4 ports DES-1210 series combines SFP and copper connectivity into a port, therefore, provides a more flexible for downstream and upstream connections of servers via fiber interface solution. Using the default settings, the administrator can quickly set up the switch without worrying about reconfiguring any settings and user-friendly delivery access.
Equipped with L2 features, these switches include IGMP snooping, port mirroring, Spanning Tree and Link Aggregation Control (LACP). The IEEE 802.3x Flow Control function allows servers to directly connect to the switch for fast, reliable data transfer. In 2000 Mbps full duplex Gigabit ports provide high-speed pipes servers with minimal loss of data transfer. Network maintenance features include the detection and diagnosis invested Loop cable. Loop detection is used to detect inverted loops created by a specific port and automatically shuts down the affected port. Cable Diagnostics is designed for network administrators to quickly examine the quality of the copper cables and also determine the type of cable error.
Switches are ideal for deployment in VoIP environments as it supports Auto Voice VLAN and Differentiated Code Point Service (DSCP) QoS for VoIP application. Auto Voice VLAN falls into place voice traffic from an IP phone assigned to a VLAN and thus improves VoIP service. With a higher priority and individual VLAN, this feature guarantees the quality and security of VoIP traffic. DSCP marks parts of an IP packet, enabling different levels of service are assigned to network traffic. With control of bandwidth, the network administrator can reserve bandwidth for important functions that require more bandwidth or must be given high priority.
The innovative Safeguard Engine D-Link function protects the switches against traffic flooding caused by virus attacks. The switches also support 802.1X port-based authentication, allowing the network to be authenticated through external RADIUS servers. In addition, the feature Access Control List (ACL) enhances network security and helps to protect the internal IT network
The DES-1210 series provides a SmartConsole utility and a web-based management that allows administrators to remotely control their network port level. The SmartConsole easily allows customers to discover multiple Web Smart Switches D-Link in the same L2 network segment.
