The DGS-3000 Series Managed Gigabit Switches are part of the Layer 2 family of D-Links managed switch product line that provides wired Gigabit speeds for Metro Ethernet and campus networks. They feature a variety of ports, including 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 ports, 1G SFP ports, and 10G SFP ports for increased network bandwidth. Surge protection, advanced Layer 2 functions, and a suite of security and management tools make the DGS-3000 Series Managed Gigabit Switches ideal for Metro Ethernet and campus applications.
The DGS-3000 Series Managed Gigabit Switches come with a variety of port types, including 1G RJ-45 ports, 1G SFP ports, and 10G SFP ports, with all models offering a minimum of at least two 1G SFP ports. The DGS-3000-28X, DGS-3000-28XS, and DGS-3000-52X offer four 10G SFP ports for improved bandwidth and fault tolerance. The DGS-3000-28LP and DGS-3000-28XMP switches feature Power over Ethernet (PoE), allowing compatible devices to be installed in remote locations without immediate access to power outlets.
Efficient and Resilient Networking
The DGS-3000 Series supports up to 6 kV surge protection on all Ethernet ports, protecting the switch from power surges due to lightning strikes or faulty electrical cabling. The DGS-3000 Series supports ITU-T G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS), which allows 50 millisecond failover in the event of a failure of one of the rings, minimizing service disruption. The switches also support IEEE 802.1AX and 802.3ad Link Aggregation, which allows grouping of multiple ports to provide redundancy and load balancing in mission-critical environments.
Quality of Service Manageability
The DGS-3000 Series implements a rich set of multilayer QoS/CoS features ensure that critical network services such as VoIP, video conferencing, IPTV, and IP surveillance are given high priority. Flexible packet classification can be based on various header fields or user-defined packet content to help administrators prioritize network traffic. Traffic shaping features guarantee bandwidth for these critical services when the network is busy. Multilayer QoS/CoS features let IT managers arrange network resources more efficiently in enterprise environments.
Identity-driven Network Policies
The DGS-3000 Series supports authentication mechanisms such as 802.1X port-based Access Control, Web-based Access Control (WAC), and MAC-based Access Control (MAC) for strict access control to network resources. After authentication, individual policies such as VLAN membership, QoS policies, and ACL rules can be assigned to each host. Additionally, the switches Microsoft® NAP (Network Access Protection), which allows network assets to and ARP Spoofing Prevention to protect against Man-in-the-Middle or ARP be protected from compromised computers by enforcing compliance with network health policies.
D-Link Single IP Management (SIM) simplifies and speeds up management tasks, allowing multiple switches to be configured, monitored, and maintained from any workstation running a web browser and with network connectivity. All switches can be managed as a virtual stack, allowing physically separate switches to be managed using a single IP address. The DGS-3000 Series also supports management tools such as a Web UI, SSH, Telnet, and console, and standards-based protocols such as SNMP, RMON, and SSL.
Security & Authentication
The DGS-3000 Series offers user and device authentication, including host-based authentication and authorization, which provide the option to finely control network access for each device on the network. Advanced features such as RADIUS accounting allow the switches to be integrated with back-end systems for billing or advanced access control. The DGS-3000 Series also support supports address and interface binding features such as IP-MAC-Port Binding and ARP Spoofing Prevention to protect against Man-in-the-Middle or ARP Spoofing attacks.
