Where to buy
10/25-Gigabit ports

10/25GbE connections for low-latency, to easily meet high-bandwidth demands, and device flexibility across the network.

Web-based GUI

Intuitive remote management interface makes setups and configurations easier, and reduces switch deployment times.

Layer 2 Features

Includes port mirroring, Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP).

Layer 3 Lite Features

Such as IP Interfaces, ARP, IPv6 Neighbor Discovery (ND), Default Routing and Static Routing.

Energy Saving Technology

Powers down any unused ports, and includes LED shut-off, port shut-off, port standby.

Quality of Service (QoS)

Rich QoS controls, including bandwidth control, and Auto Surveillance VLAN.

Network Security

D-Link’s Safeguard Engine™ helps protect against traffic flooding from malicious attacks.

Affordable 10/25G capabilities, for a reliable high-speed network.

Add 10/25-Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to your network with these cost-effective switches. Designed to work as the network core for Small to Medium Businesses (SMBs) or as an aggregation switch in a larger Enterprise.

Extensive Layer 2 & Layer 3 Lite features.

The DXS-1210 series includes layer 2 features such as port mirroring, Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). They also support IP interfaces, ARP, IPv6 Neighbor Discovery (ND), default routing, IPv4/IPv6 static routing, IGMP and MLD Snooping, auto voice and surveillance VLAN, LLDP and LLDP-MED.

Improved intranet performance
Inter-VLAN routing allows traffic to be routed between VLANs without passing through the router, reducing the load on the router as well as the backbone networks.

Security and QoS controls for priorities
Security controls for protection of the network, and QoS ensures essential traffic reaches its destination.

Seamless integration.

The DXS-1210 Series comes with both RJ45 and SFP+ ports capable of connecting to Cat. 6 and fibre for 10G Ethernet. Additionally, the DXS-1210-28T comes with 4 x 10/25G SFP28 ports. This means the DXS-1210 series can provide a flexible solution for upstream or downstream server connections, making network deployment easier.

Security with every port.

The innovative D-Link Safeguard Engine protects the switches against traffic flooding caused by malicious attacks and increases overall network reliability. 

These switches also feature Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) spoofing prevention which further protects the network from cyber attacks. They also use packet control ACLs to block invalid packets that contain fake ARP messages.

The Access Control List (ACL) helps protect the internal IT network through permission-based network access.

The DHCP server screen feature filters DHCP replies on unauthorised ports to prevent them from being assigned an IP address.

And support for 802.1X port-based and host-based authentication allows the network to be authenticated through external RADIUS servers.

QoS and Bandwidth Control for network priorities.

The DXS-1210 Series supports Auto Surveillance VLAN (ASV) and Auto Voice VLAN, to make faster VoIP and video surveillance deployments.

Auto Surveillance VLAN
Automatically detects and assigns video surveillance traffic to a high-priority VLAN by creating distinct broadcast domains to guarantee that quality real-time video is transferred.

Auto Voice VLAN
Enhances the VoIP service by automatically placing voice traffic from IP phones to a designated VLAN. With a prioritised and segmented VLAN, this feature guarantees quality and security of VoIP traffic.

As a result, the voice and video packets take precedence over other packets. And with bandwidth control, more bandwidth can be reserved for important functions.
