Smart Managed Switches
The DGS-1510 Series is D-Link’s latest generation of SmartPro switches with 10G port connectivity, making them ideal for deployment in medium business environments. The DGS-1510 Series provides a reliable, scalable, and modular interconnection between core switches and edge switches with rich capabilities and simplified flexibility. Available in 16, 24 and 48 10/100/1000 Mbps port models, these switches also include four optical ports – including 2 Gigabit SFP and 2 10G SFP+ ports. The 24 and 48 port versions are also available with 4 10G SFP+ ports instead of the 2 Gigabit plus 2 10G configuration.
Outperforming the competition
The DGS-1510-28X was benchmarked against a market leading competitor's device. It had a significantly lower purchase price and much lower power consumption.
10 Gigabit Stacking/ Uplink Ports
Depending on whether linear or fault-tolerant ring stacking is implemented, users can use one or two 10-Gigabit SFP+ ports to create a physical stack. Six units or 288 Gigabit ports can be configured as a stack using optional direct attach cables to provide high bandwidth on the DGS-1510 Series with cost efficiency.
The DGS-1510 Series provides:
- Network Assistant Utility
- Industry-standard CLI
- Intuitive web-based management interface
Support for SNMP allows centralized management of a large number of devices and out-of-band management is available via a dedicated console port.
Extensive Layer 2 Features
The DGS-1510 Series switches are equipped with a complete lineup of Layer 2 features including IGMP Snooping, Port Mirroring, Spanning Tree, and Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP). The IEEE 802.3x Flow Control function allows servers to directly connect to the switch for fast, reliable data transfer. At 2000 Mbps Full Duplex, the Gigabit ports provide high-speed data pipes to servers with minimum data transfer loss. Network maintenance features include Loopback Detection and Cable Diagnostics.
Layer 3 Traffic Management
The DGS-1510 Series supports advanced traffic management features, including static routing. The switch can directly handle inter VLAN routing using multiple interfaces, making the network run faster and more efficiently.
