xStack 12-Port SFP Layer 3+ Gigabit Switch


  • Product Status (DEU Revision A): End of Life
• 8 SFP Slots + 4 Combo GE/SFP Ports, IPV6 Ready
• Flexible Web, Telnet, Serial Console Management
• Virtual Stacking with Single IP Management (SIM)

Unparalleled Flexibility

Easy to deploy and simple to managed, the DGS-3600 series can be stacked with any switches supporting D-Link's Single IP Management to form a multi-level network structured with backbone and centralized high-speed servers. This virtual stack can comprise units located anywhere on the same network domain. It can eliminate single points of failures, cable distance barriers, physical stacking method limitations and the need for stacking cabling.

Redundant Ring Stacking (note: not available in the DGS-3612G)

Alternatively, users can install one or two 10-Gigabit uplinks, depending on whether the linear or fault-tolerant ring stacking is implemented, to create a physical stack. Up to 12 units or 576 Gigabit ports can be configured for a stack. Using the coaxial cable or fiber as the medium to stack switches together, the DGS-3600 series provides not only high-bandwidth stacking but also the cost control capability that allows users to add 10-Gigabit uplinks strictly as needed. Modules with single 10-Gigabit XFP can also be installed in any of the open slots for uplink to servers or a fiber backbone.

Security, Performance & Availability.

The DGS-3600 series provides a complete set of security features, which includes L2/L3/L4 multi-layer Access Control Lists and 802.1x user authentication via TACACS+ and RADIUS servers. In addition, it offers suppression capabilities and Layer 3 IP v4/v6 Static Routing to increase network performance and security. Built-in D-Link ZoneDefense2 technology allows business to integrate the switch stack with D-Link NetDefend firewalls to implement a full coverage, proactive security architecture.

The DGS-3600 series offers extensive VLAN support including GARP/GVRP and 802.1Q VLAN to enhance security and performance. To support converged applications including VoIP, ERP, Intranet and video conference, a robust set of L2/L3/L4 QoS/CoS features ensures that critical network services are served with proper priority. To prevent malicious flooding traffic caused by worm/virus infections, the DGS-3600 series provides D-Link Safeguard Engine to increase the switch's reliability, serviceability and availability. Bandwidth Control can be flexibly set for each port using pre-defined thresholds to assure a committed level of service for end users. For advanced applications, per-flow bandwidth control allows easy fine-tuning of service types based on specific IP addresses or protocols.
