The switches meet the IEEE 802.3az 802.3az standard for energy-efficient Ethernet (EEE) and reduce power consumption at low connection load. EEE devices reduce operating costs and cooling costs, which can be an important cost saving factor for small and medium-sized businesses. The DGS-1100 Series features D-Link Green technology that automatically reduces energy consumption. The switches automatically recognize the length of the connected cables and adjust the power consumption for a cable length of less than 20 meters. In addition, the switches monitor the connection status of each port and significantly reduce power consumption when a port is inactive.
The DGS-1100 Series EasySmart switches have a web interface and support the SmartConsole utility. The SmartConsole utility automatically detects all D-Link smart switches in a Layer 2 network segment. Users do not need to change their IP address, so the initial configuration of smart switches can be done quickly and easily. Switches in a Layer 2 network segment that are connected to the user's local PC are displayed on the screen ready for access. This enables extensive switch configuration and basic configuration of detected devices with password change and firmware update. The user-friendly web interface allows administrators to remotely control networks down to port level.
Surveillance VLAN and bandwidth management
With the Surveillance VLAN function, the DGS-1100 Series is perfectly suited for video surveillance systems. The Surveillance VLAN function assigns higher priority to video data and a dedicated VLAN to ensure the transmission quality required for video surveillance. The DGS-1100 series switches eliminate the need for additional hardware costs. With bandwidth management, bandwidth can also be reserved at each port for important functions that require more bandwidth or a higher priority.
The DGS-1100-08P is Power over Ethernet (PoE) capable and facilitates the use of IP cameras, VoIP telephones and access points. Power cables are a thing of the past: The DGS-1100-08P complies with the 802.3af standard for PoE and has up to 64 Watt PoE capacity. Even high-resolution videos are no problem for the Gigabit Ethernet ports.
The Loopback Detection and Cable Diagnostics functions of the EasySmart switches support network administrators in troubleshooting and fast troubleshooting. Loopback detection detects loops on a particular port, automatically disabling the affected port. The Cable Diagnostics feature allows network administrators to check the quality of copper cables, determine cable type and detect cable defects.
The DGS-1100 Series includes advanced security features such as static MAC addresses, storm filtering and IGMP snooping. With static MAC addresses, individual ports can be released for specific MAC addresses. Network access is therefore only possible with permitted devices. Storm filtering monitors broadcast, multicast, and unknown unicast traffic and blocks or rejects packets as soon as a specified threshold is exceeded and the packets could cause network congestion. IGMP snooping reduces the load on Layer 3 multicast routers and saves bandwidth.…more
