The D-Link DGS-1210 Series Smart Managed Switches are the latest generation of switches to provide increased Power over Ethernet (PoE) output, a range of physical interface types, multiple management interfaces, and advanced Layer 2 features. With all of these features combined, the DGS-1210 Series provides a cost-efficient and flexible solution for expanding any business network.
The DGS-1210 Series includes a wide range of port and media types, including 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 ports, 100/1000 Mbps combo ports, and 100/1000 Mbps SFP ports. The DGS-1210-10, DGS-1210-26, DGS-1210-10P, and DGS-1210-10MP models feature 2 100/1000 Mbps SFP ports, while all other DGS-1210 Series models feature 4 GbE/SFP combo ports, allowing you to choose the most suitable media type for your requirements. All DGS-1210 Series PoE switches include support for IEEE 802.3af/at and higher power budgets, allowing more PoE devices to be powered by the switch and for devices to be installed in remote locations without immediate access to power outlets.
The DGS-1210 Series comes equipped with a complete lineup of L2 features, including IGMP snooping, port mirroring, Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), 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 transfers. The DGS-1210 Series also supports advanced features such as static routes, which allow network administrators to divide the network into VLANs, increasing network efficiency. Network maintenance features include loopback detection and cable diagnostics. Loopback detection significantly speeds up troubleshooting by automatically detecting and shutting down switching loops. The cable diagnostics feature, designed primarily for administrators and customer service representatives, determines the cable quality and quickly discovers errors, allowing for hassle-free diagnostics and maintenance.
The DGS-1210 Series supports Auto Voice VLAN and Surveillance Mode, which allows voice and video traffic to be automatically identified and handled differently than regular network traffic. Auto Voice VLAN detects Voice over IP (VoIP) traffic and automatically segments it from the rest of the network, adding a layer of isolation and allowing Quality of Service (QoS) to be applied. Surveillance Mode detects compatible ONVIF cameras and places them in a surveillance VLAN, allowing a single switch to be used for voice, video, and data, removing the need for dedicated hardware and reducing maintenance costs. Surveillance Mode also includes its own Web UI, making surveillance features easily accessible and simplifying management of your surveillance network.
Advanced Access Control
D-Link’s innovative Safeguard Engine helps to protect the switches against traffic flooding caused by malicious attacks. The DGS-1210 Series supports 802.1X port-based authentication, allowing the clients to be authenticated through external RADIUS servers. The Access Control List (ACL) feature helps to enhance network security and helps to protect the internal IT network. The
DGS-1210 Series also features Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) spoofing prevention, which helps to provide protection from attacks on the network that could allow an intruder to sniff data frames, modify traffic, or bring traffic to a halt altogether by sending fake ARP messages. To help prevent ARP spoofing attacks, the switch uses packet control ACLs to block invalid packets
that contain fake ARP messages. The DHCP server screening feature filters DHCP replies on unauthorized ports to prevent them from being assigned an IP address.
The DGS-1210 Series comes with the D-Link Network Assistant (DNA) utility that enables administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level. The D-Link Network Assistant utility furthermore allows customers to easily discover multiple D-Link Smart Managed Switches within the same L2 network segment and display them on-screen for instant access.
With this utility, users do not need to change the IP address of their PC. This allows for simultaneous configuration and setup of all discovered devices, including password changes and firmware upgrades. The DGS-1210 Series also supports D-View 7.0 and Command Line Interface (CLI) through Telnet. D-View 7.0 is a network management system that allows for the central of network assets, remote configuration, and logging functions.
