Gigabit Smart Switches

D-Link’s DGS-1100 Series Gigabit Smart Switches provide an affordable solution for SOHOs and Small and Medium Businesses as well as enterprise deployments, such as in branch offices and
meeting rooms that require simple network management. Each model comes in a compact desktop-sized metal case and features either 8, 16, or 24 Gigabit port. The DGS-1100 Series also
includes an 8-port PoE switch that supports 802.3af PoE with a power budget of 64W.

D-Link Green/Power Saving Performance

Compliant with IEEE802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet, these switches consume less energy by cutting down on power consumption when port utilisation is low. By deploying EEE devices, users can cut operating costs and even cut down on necessary cooling equipment, helping small and medium-sized businesses stay within their budgets. The DGS-1100 Series also features D-Link Green Technology that helps automatically save energy. The switches automatically detect the length of the connected cables and can adjust power usage for cables shorter than 20 meters. In addition, the switches monitor the link status of every port and will drastically reduce power consumption when a port link is down.

Easy to deploy

The DGS-1100 Series Gigabit Smart Switches support an intuitive SmartConsole Utility and a web-based management interface. The SmartConsole Utility allows customers to discover all switches in the D-Link Smart Switch family within the same L2 network segment. With this utility, users do not need to change the IP address of their PC, and this also makes initial setup of the Smart 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 graphics web-based management interface provides a user-friendly interface that enables network administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level.

Surveillance VLAN and Bandwidth Control

The DGS-1100 Series supports Surveillance VLAN for video surveillance deployment. Surveillance VLAN gives video traffic high priority and an individual VLAN, guaranteeing the quality of surveillance traffic through a single DGS-1100 switch, thus sparing businesses the added expenses required for dedicated hardware and facilities. Bandwidth Control can reserve bandwidth on a per-port basis for important functions that require larger bandwidth or might have high priority.

PoE Support

The DGS-1100-08P delivers Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities, making deployment with IP cameras, VoIP phones, and access points much easier. Power cords will become a thing of the past, as the DGS-1100-08P complies with the 802.3af standard for PoE and supports a 64 Watt power budget. The 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet ports mean that even high-quality video is no problem.

Easy Troubleshooting

These Gigabit Smart Switches feature 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.

Advanced Features

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.
