48-Port xStack Layer 3 Switch with 2 2 Gigabit Ethernet Ports and Single IP Management


  • Product Status (Revision A): End of Life

With the xStack DES-3852 switch you will be able to create a fast, flexible, secure and easy to manage network that can be expanded when needed.

This enables you to deploy a backbone or workgroup solution with seamless integration with D-Link NetDefend firewalls using the Zone Defense mechanism to form part of a high performance and secure network structure with a minimum amount of investment.

48-Port xStack Layer 3 Switch with 2+2 Gigabit Ethernet Ports and Single IP Management

The xStack DES-3852 is a Layer 3 switch designed for working groups at large companies, as a backbone solution for smaller and medium-sized companies or as an access switch in broadband networks. The DES-3852 is equipped with 48 x 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet ports and 2+2 Gigabit Ethernet ports, whereby two combo Gigabit Ethernet/Mini GBIC ports are positioned on the front and 2 pure Gigabit Ethernet ports are positioned on the back for dedicated trunking and stacking with other switches in combination with single IP management (SIM).

The DES-3852 has advanced functionality such as wire-speed IP routing, OSPF, VRRP, Link aggregation (LACP), VLAN 802.1Q and prioritisation queues, enabling users to create a cost-efficient, well-functioning network with no bottlenecks.

The DES-3852 also handles traffic intelligently, allowing the definition of priority queues 802.1p for streamed media, VoIP (Voice over IP) and other high-priority classes of traffic. The switch is also equipped with Quality of Service with IP TOS/DSCP for Layer 3 and TCP/UDP (also Payload - packet content) for Layer 4.

As a Layer 3 router, the switch supports standard IP routing (IPv4) for universal compatibility, as well as RIP-1, RIP-2 and OSPF. This means it is very easy to combine lots of different sub networks in the same switch. With Layer 2 and 3 support for each port, you will be able to customise your own filters based on MAC or IP addresses at the user computers, enabling unnecessary traffic to be filtered out and static routing tables to be created for specific destinations, for example.

The DES-3852 has also been equipped with a number of security functions such as 802.1x port/MAC based RADIUS support, TACACS+, SSH v2, SSL v3 and ZoneDefense functionality for Proactive Network Security functionality, together with D-Link's new firewalls/IDSs, the DFL-800, DFL-1600 and DFL-2500.
