D-Link’s DGS-1100 Series provides an affordable solution for SOHOs and Small and Medium Businesses as well as enterprise deployment, such as in branch offices and meeting rooms that require simple network management. Most models come in a compact desktop-sized metal case and feature a wide selection of Gigabit port configurations with optional Gigabit fibre uplink ports. There are 6 switches in the series supporting Power-over-Ethernet of which 1 can be powered by PoE with PoE-passthrough to power additional PoE-enabled devices, and 2 offer high-power-budget PoE for businesses looking to power VoIP phones, wireless access points or network cameras. The 5-port DGS-1100-05PD can be powered by a PoE switch and with its PoE-passthrough feature, can power 2 additional PoE-enabled devicces. The 10-port DGS-1100-10MP supports up to 30W on eight ports with a power budget of 130W, whereas the DGS-1100-26MP provides 24 PoE-enabled ports, a power budget of 370W and all PoE-enabled ports support up to 30W. DGS-1100-10MPP supports up to 242W PoE power budget as well as 2 x 802.3bt/UPoE ports. Advanced management features, diagnostic and troubleshooting tools, and energy efficient technologies provide a flexible solution to suit your networking requirements.nnOptimised for Video Surveillancen The DGS-1100 Series supports Auto Surveillance VLAN (ASV) which ensures the quality of real-time video for monitoring and control without compromising the transmission of conventional network data. Furthermore, DGS-1100-10MP, DGS-1100-10MPP and DGS-1100-26MP smart managed switches are the world’s first PoE switches with ONVIF support with optional surveillance optimised web interface. This allows it to recognise ONVIF devices and integrate seamlessly with your surveillance network. You can also access in real-time vital information on your surveillance network such as surveillance topology and device status as well as PoE power and network bandwidth utilisation. Various power budgets, support for PoE+ standard and 6 KV surge protection make the DGS-1100-10MP, DGS-1100-10MPP DGS-1100-26MP switches a critical part of your surveillance infrastructure.nnAuto Voice VLAN and Bandwidth Controln The DGS-1100 Series supports Auto Voice VLAN, which is best suited for VoIP deployments. This enhances the VoIP service by automatically placing voice traffic from an IP phone to an assigned VLAN. With higher priority and individual VLAN, these features guarantee the quality and security of VoIP traffic. Bandwidth Control can reserve bandwidth on a per port basis for important functions that require larger bandwidth or have high priority. nnAdvanced Featuresn DGS-1100 Series is equipped with advanced security features such as Static MAC, Storm Control, and IGMP Snooping. Static MAC allows users to create a MAC whitelist for specific ports, helping administrators limit network access to authorised devices only. Storm Control monitors broadcast, multicast, or unknown unicast traffic and will start blocking or discarding packets which could flood the network when the defined threshold is exceeded. IGMP Snooping is able to reduce the loading of L3 multicast routers and save bandwidth in network throughput.nnEasy Troubleshootingn The DGS-1100 Series features Loopback Detection and Cable Diagnostics to help network administrators find and solve network problems quickly and easily. Loopback Detection is used to detect loops created by a specific port and automatically shut down the affected port. The Cable Diagnostics feature is designed for network administrators to quickly examine the quality of the copper cables, recognise the cable type, and detect cable errors.nnEasy to deploynThe DGS-1100 Series supports an intuitive D-Link Network Assistant Utility and a web-based management interface. The D-Link Network Assistant Utility allows customers to discover all switches in the D-Link Smart Managed Switch family within the same L2 network segment. With this utility, users do not need to change the IP address of their PC, which also makes the initial setup of the Smart Managed Switches quick and easy. Switches within the same L2 network segment that are connected to the user’s PC are displayed on-screen for instant access. This allows for extensive switch configuration and basic setup of discovered devices, including password changes and firmware upgrades. The graphic web-based management interface provides a user-friendly interface that enables network administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level.
