The Data Link Layer specifies how the network is shared and data moved around. It is here that Ethernet switches mostly operate, forwarding traffic based on the universally implemented MAC address of attached devices.
The DGS-3000 Series Gigabit L2 Managed Switches 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 Gigabit L2 Managed Switches ideal for Metro Ethernet and campus applications.
D-Link’s DXS-3400 Series Top-of-Rack 10 Gigabit Stackable Managed Switches consists of new compact, high-performance switches that feature wire speed 10-Gigabit Ethernet switching, routing, and ultra-low latency. The DXS-3400 Series switches includes 20 x 10GBASE-T or 20 x 10G SFP+ ports and 4 10GBASE-T/SFP+ combo ports, making them suitable for data centre, core, and distribution applications.
The DGS-3000-10TC is part of the Layer 2 family of D-Link’s managed switch product line that provides wired Gigabit speed access for metro and campus networks. The DGS-3000-10TC is designed as a 1U rackmount case suitable for enterprise access or service provider telecom cabinets, maximising network performance without compromising on reliability and security. Green technology decreases energy costs by reducing power consumption, without compromising on performance.
The DES-3200 Series is a member of D-Link’s Layer 2 managed switch family designed for the ETTX, FTTX, and enterprise markets. The DES-3200 Series provides 8/16/24, or 48 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet connections and various SFP or combo Gigabit/SFP ports uplink, as well as PoE options.
The DGS-3120 xStack Series switches are enhanced L2 access stackable switches designed to connect end-users in a secure SMB or enterprise network. These switches support physical stacking, multicast, and enhanced security, making them an ideal Gigabit access layer solution.
The xStack DGS-3420 series of next generation Layer 2+ Gigabit switches delivers performance, flexibility, security, multi-layer QoS, and accessibility, along with redundant power solutions for SMBs and enterprises. With high Gigabit port densities, Gigabit SFP, 10-Gigabit SFP+ support, and advanced software solutions, these switches can act as either departmental access layer devices or aggregation switches to form a multilevel network structured with backbone and centralised high-speed servers.
10 Gigabit Switches used to be the exclusive realm of large companies. Now, D-Link’s DXS-1210 Series of 10 Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Switches brings the business benefits of high performance and low latency of 10G Ethernet to businesses of all sizes.
