D-Link's DGS-1100 Series is an addition to EasySmart Switches featuring D-Link Green Technology. Compliant with IEEE802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet, this switch consumes less power during idle periods. The DGS-1100 Series consists of 16 and 24 Gigabit port models and comes in a compact 11" desktop/rackmount enclosure. These switches also implement D-Link Green features that detect link status and cable length and adjust power usage accordingly. Switch management can be performed through a web management interface or through the SmartConsole Utility. The DGS-1100 Series also supports features such as port VLANs, Quality of Service (QoS), and IGMP snooping to optimize performance for multicast applications. Its fanless design allows for quieter operation and provides a longer product life.
The DGS-1100 Series provides an affordable solution for Small and Medium Business, without IT staff. They are also suitable for Enterprise deployment, such as in branch offices and meeting rooms that require simple network management.
The DGS-1100 Series supports Auto Surveillance VLAN (ASV), which is best suited for video surveillance deployment. Auto Surveillance VLAN is a new, industry-leading technology incorporated into the D-Link EasySmart Switch Series that consolidates data and surveillance video transmission through a single switch, thus sparing businesses the expense of dedicated hardware and facilities. ASV also ensures the quality of real-time video for monitoring and control without compromising the transmission of conventional network data. In addition, with Bandwidth Control, network administrators can reserve bandwidth for important functions that require more bandwidth or might have high priority.
Compliant with IEEE802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), these switches consume less energy by cutting down on power consumption when the traffic volume is low. This new standard allows for less power consumption during idle periods of low link use. By deploying EEE devices, users can cut operating costs and even cut down on necessary cooling equipment, helping small and medium sized businesses stay within their budgets.
The DGS-1100 Series also features D-Link Green Technology. The switches automatically detect the length of connected cables and can adjust power usage for shorter cable connections of up to 20 meters, saving energy automatically. Power saving by Link Status drastically reduces power consumption by automatically placing ports without a link in sleep mode.
The DGS-1100 EasySmart Switches support an intuitive SmartConsole utility and a web-based management interface that enables administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level. The SmartConsole allows customers to discover multiple D-Link EasySmart Switches within the same network segment. With this utility, users do not need to change the IP address of their PC to discover their EasySmart switches, and it also makes initial setup quick and easy. This allows for extensive switch configuration and basic setup of discovered devices, including password changes and firmware upgrades.
Network maintenance features include Loopback Detection and Cable Diagnostics. Loopback Detection is used to detect loops created by a specific port and automatically shuts down the affected port. Cable Diagnostics is designed for network administrators to quickly examine the quality of the copper cables and also determine the type of cable error. In addition, Static MAC can disable Auto Learning on selected ports and set static MAC addresses to designated ports to extend security on the network.
Resilience and performance
The basic lineup of L2 features in the EasySmart series makes them very suitable for SMB with small IT teams, without sacrificing on performance and security. Network downtime is reduced drastically with loopback detection and broadcast storm control. Security and confidentiality of network traffic is guaranteed with VLANs. Ample bandwidth on the uplinks to the rest of the network can be achieved with link aggregation, and the cable diagnostics function provides an easy and convenient way to quickly detect and troubleshoot cabling problems.
