The DGS-1510 Series is D-Links latest generation of SmartPro switches with 10G port connectivity, making them ideal for deployment in SME/SMB aggregation environments. The DGS-1510 Series provides a reliable and scalable interconnection between core switches and edge switches with rich capabilities and simplified flexibility. Available in 16, 24 or 48 10/100/1000 Mbps port models, with additional fiber ports for Physical Stacking and / or Uplinks.
The DGS-1510 Series PoE-enabled switches are ideal for businesses looking to power VoIP phones, wireless access points or network cameras. The DGS-1510-28P 24-port PoE Switch supports up to 30W of power output giving you flexibility in power allocation for a variety of powered devices. This enables you to scale your operations to meet business growth and incorporate new technologies all with affordable installation costs.
10G SFP+ Stacking/Uplink Ports
Depending on whether linear or fault-tolerant ring stacking is implemented, users can use one or two 10-Gigabit SFP+ ports to create a physical stack. 6 units or 288 Gigabit ports can be configured as a stack using optional direct attach cables to provide high bandwidth on the DGS-1510 Series with cost efficiency. Users can mix from any of the DGS-1510 SmartPro series in a single stack to allow simultaneous and easy configuration, management and troubleshooting. With 20Gbps full duplex, the DGS-1510 offers 10G connectivity to core networks as well as servers with 10G capability while maintaining high performance and minimal impact to the data transfer rates.
Layer 3 Traffic Management
The DGS-1510 Series provides static route, allowing you to segment your network into workgroups and communicate across VLANs without degrading application performance. With these capabilities, you can boost the efficiency of your network by offloading internal traffic-handling tasks from your router and allowing it to manage external traffic and security.
Extensive Layer 2 Features
The DGS-1510 Series switches are equipped with a complete lineup of Layer 2 features including IGMP Snooping, Port Mirroring, Spanning Tree, and Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP). The IEEE 802.3x Flow Control function allows servers to directly connect to the switch for fast, reliable data transfer. Network maintenance features include Loopback Detection and Cable Diagnostics. Loopback Detection is used to detect loops created by a specific port or VLAN and automatically shuts down the affected port or VLAN. The Cable Diagnostics feature, designed primarily for administrators and customer service representatives, can quickly discover the type of error on cables as well as determine cable quality.
Traffic Classification & QoS
The DGS-1510 Series supports Auto Surveillance VLAN (ASV) and Auto Voice VLAN, which are best suited for VoIP and video surveillance deployments. Auto Surveillance VLAN is a new, industry-leading technology built into D-Link Smart Switches. This technology consolidates data and surveillance video transmission through a single SmartPro switch, sparing businesses the expense of maintaining expensive dedicated hardware and facilities. ASV also ensures the quality of real-time video for monitoring and control without compromising the transmission of conventional network data. The Auto Voice VLAN technology enhances VoIP service by automatically placing voice traffic from an IP phone to an assigned VLAN. With higher priority and an individual VLAN, these features guarantee the quality and security of VoIP traffic. Furthermore, the DSCP markings on Ethernet packets enable different levels of service to be assigned to network traffic. As a result, these voice and video packets take precedence over other packets. In addition, with per flow Bandwidth Control, network administrators can reserve bandwidth for important functions that require more bandwidth or might require high priority.
Securing Your Network
D-Links innovative Safeguard Engine protects the switches against traffic flooding caused by malicious attacks. The switches also support 802.1X port-based authentication, allowing the network to be authenticated through external RADIUS servers. The DGS-1510 Series has both MAC & Web-based Access Control supported, these provide a user friendly way to alleviate deployment time, giving customers an effective and efficient authentication choice without the complexity in securing their networks. Additionally, the Access Control List (ACL) feature enhances network security and helps to protect the internal IT network by screening ingress traffic based on any user defined content. The DGS-1510 Series includes ARP Spoofing Prevention, which protects from attacks on the Ethernet network that may allow an intruder to sniff data frames, modify traffic, or bring traffic to a halt altogether by sending fake ARP messages to the network. For added security, the DHCP Server Screening feature screens rogue DHCP server packets from user ports to prevent unauthorized IP assignment.
The DGS-1510 Series is IPv6 ready and supports various IPv6 functions such as MLD Snooping, IPv6 ACL/QoS, and IP-MAC-Port Binding (IMPB) to ensure seamless integration of next generation networks. The DGS-1510 Series also supports a IPv4/v6 dual stack function that allows the switch to act as a bridge between IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
The DGS-1510 Series supports virtual stacking via D-Links Single IP Management (SIM), allowing up to 32 devices to be managed via a single IP. This simplifies management of small workgroups or wiring closets while reducing the number of IP address needed in your network. The DGS-1510 Series provides a D-Link Network Assistant Utility and a web-based management interface that enables administrators to easily setup and remotely manage their networks respectively. The D-Link Network Assistant Utility allows customers to easily discover and perform initial setup on multiple D-Link products simultaneously. This greatly reduces the deployment time for services required by network administrators such as device firmware upgrades, configuration backup and restoration, setting IP addresses or even solution deployment like ASV. The DGS-1510 Series also supports fully featured Command Line Interface (CLI) and SNMP MIBs. It provides the capability of central management in a large scale network. CLI management of the switches is also available via console port. With out-of-band manageability (console), accessing the switch is still possible even if its network data plane is overwhelmed by bulk or malicious traffic.
DGS-1510 switches are capable of conserving power without sacrificing operational performance or functionality by using D-Link Green 3.0 technology. Using the 802.3az Energy Efcient 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, DGS-1510 switches offer advanced power-saving settings including port shutoff, LED shutoff, and system hibernation based on custom scheduling profiles. The profiles can also be applied to the PoE switch so that there is no unnecessary power consumption during off hours.
