D-Link Green

Eco-Friendly Switches

In recent years, D-Link have also turned their attention to going eco-friendly. Their D-Link Green Promise aims to increase green products from 35% to 85% of their product portfolio.

As part of their D-Link Green technology range, the D-Link DGS‑1210 Series Network Switches have a brilliant set of eco-friendly features. The majority of the DGS1210 series utilises fanless designs, which helps reduce unnecessary power consumption.

Through D-link Green, the company aims to

  • Reduced power consumption, less heat dissipation
  • Extended product life
  • Reduced operating costs

The D-Link Green ethos extends beyond the product. D-Link seeks to reduce emissions generated by transporting the products from factories and warehouses. These initiatives include better load capacity on pallets, more eco-friendly packaging and using sea freights over air shipments


D-Link Switch

D-Link DGS‑1210 Series Overview

As we mentioned earlier, D-Link DGS‑1210 Series Network Switches are packed with a staggering amount of management and security features. All aimed to boost your network and make it easy to manage.

The D-Link DGS‑1210 Series Network Switches have 8, 24, or 48-gigabit ports. Each switch also supports an additional 2 or 4 Gigabit SFP ports for optical connections using multimode or singlemode SFP transceivers.


Energy Saving

The Switches use the Energy Efficient Ethernet standard to automatically decrease the power usage when traffic is low with no setup required.

D-Link DGS‑1210 Series Network Switches also offers advanced level power-saving settings:

  • Link Status detection
  • LED Shut-Off
  • Port Shut-Off
  • System Hibernation
  • Time-based PoE

The D-link DGS-1210 Series switches can also detect the length of connected cables to reduce power usage on shorter cable connections automatically.


Fibre Uplink Ports

The D-Link DGS‑1210 Series Network Switches range uses fibre uplinks and SFP ports to connect across longer distances. This makes the switches perfect for factory lines and university campuses where speed across long distances is key.

Businesses can ensure this speed by using lightweight, secure, and energy‑efficient fibre optic cabling that’s immune to interference and which has access to higher throughput.


PoE and PoE+

The D-Link DGS‑1210 range includes a range of PoE-enabled switches. These switches have a power budget of up to 193W. This is perfect for powering VoIP phones, wireless access points and network cameras.


Layer 2 Features

D-Link DGS‑1210 Series Network Switches come equipped with a complete lineup of L2 features, plus some exclusive technology.

The D-Link DGS-1210 Series switches include:

  • IGMP Snooping
  • Port Mirroring
  • Spanning Tree
  • Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP)


Additionally, 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

Network maintenance features on the D-Link DGS‑1210 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 is designed primarily for administrators and customer service representatives. It can rapidly discover the type of error and determine cable quality.



D-Link’s innovative Safeguard Engine protects the switches against traffic flooding caused by virus attacks. Safeguard Engine enhances the robustness of switches, and increase overall network reliability. It identifies unusually high traffic and throttles unwanted interruption, all while protecting switch operations.

The Safeguard engine can also set a CPU utilisation threshold. Then that threshold is crossed, the switch will take action to prevent the over-use of switch resources.

The switches also support 802.1X port-based authentication, allowing the authentication of network clients through external RADIUS servers.

Access Control List (ACL) 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 unauthorised IP assignment.


Auto Surveillance VLAN And Voice VLAN

The process of setting up IP surveillance and VoIP on a network is automated and cannot be easier.

Auto Surveillance VLAN (ASV) 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 their highest levels.

Similarly, the Auto Voice VLAN guarantees clear audio quality and efficient transmission for all voice communication. Surveillance Mode also includes its own Web UI, making surveillance features easily accessible and simplifying management of your surveillance network.


D-View 7 – Free Network Design And Management Software

The D-Link DGS‑1210 Series Smart Managed Switches can be easily managed through the D-View 7 Software. D-Link’s Network Management system allows easy management and reporting for your network. And the best bit? It has a free licence for up to 25 nodes and two probes.

The D-View 7 Network Management System has a fantastic graphical dashboard which helps you monitor your network in real time.  The scheduling system allows you to schedule tasks for outside of peak hours.

The software is web-based, meaning all operating systems can access with most popular web browsers, such as Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera. The software can be accessed remotely so that you can work on the network remotely.

The software also lets you tailor your topology in a way that makes sense to your business. You can organise them by geographical location, functional responsibility or by organisational hierarchy.

In addition, the D-View 7 software allows you to manage third-party devices on your network. You can customise SOIDs, and other information, as well as check the health status of devices.

Deployment Ideas

The D-Link DGS‑1210 Series Smart Managed Switches are highly flexible, meaning they can be used for a range of deployment areas.

Office Networks

These switches are perfect for data-intensive medium-sized businesses who need a robust system. The switches are ideal for setting up office networks, especially with the build in network assistant software.

The PoE switches give ample power for VoIP devices, meaning office phone systems can be scaled to suit your needs.


IP Surveillance

The PoE features also help create a robust IP security camera network. The PoE watt budgets on the switch, and the high transfer speeds allow video to be captured and transferred in high quality.

But the switches have another trick up their sleeve.

Turning on Surveillance Mode in the Web UI gives you access to amazing features which enable you to manage your surveillance network effortlessly.

It automatically detects your security devices and segments them into a dedicated Auto Surveillance VLAN to handle video surveillance traffic securely and efficiently.


School And Industrial Campuses

The fibre uplink feature allows data to travel across long distances at a much higher speed. This makes the D-Link DGS‑1210 Series Smart Managed Switches perfect for large campuses and areas. Additionally, the PoE functions are ideal for powering Wireless Access Points, which help boost connectivity across a large area.
