D-Link Green

The DXS-1210-28T/28S 10 Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Switches are a cost-effective 10 Gigabit switches capable of servicing a range of network needs in any business environment. The DXS-1210-28T is equipped with 4 x 10/25G SFP28 ports, enabling this series to serve as either an aggregation/access switch in large enterprise environments or deployed at the core of an SMB network. With high performance and low latency, these 10G smart-managed switches fulfil the needs of virtualisation, cloud services, and server-to-server applications.

The DXS-1210-28T/28S comes with a complete line-up of L2 features, including port mirroring, Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). At the same time, inter-VLAN static routing helps by reducing the pressure of routers and backbone networks, improving overall network efficiency. The free D-Link Network Assistant utility allows multiple D-Link devices within the same L2 network to be discovered and managed. These switches also provide management through the multi-lingual web UI, a full command-line interface (CLI) through Telnet, a console port, as well as D-View 7 Network Management System.

Energy Saving

By incorporating D-Link Green technology, this series of switches is capable of saving power without sacrificing operational performance or functionality. The switches feature builtin smart fans with internal heat sensors that monitor and detect temperature changes and react accordingly by utilising different fan speeds for different temperatures. At lower temperatures, the fans will run slower, reducing the switch’s power consumption and noise. Link status drastically reduces power consumption by automatically putting ports without a link into a sleep mode. The DXS-1210 Series takes the approach to green IT one step further by incorporating a special chipset with advanced silicon technology for efficient use of energy.

Extensive Management and Layer 2 Features

The DXS-1210 Series comes with a complete line-up of L2 features, includes port mirroring, Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). Network maintenance features include loopback detection and cable diagnostics. Loopback detection significantly speeds up troubleshooting by automatically detecting and shutting down difficult to diagnose switching loops. The cable diagnostic feature, designed primarily for administrators and customer service representatives, determines the cable quality and quickly discovers errors, allowing hassle-free diagnostics and maintenance.

Quality of Service and Bandwidth Control

The DXS-1210 Series supports Auto Surveillance VLAN (ASV) and Auto Voice VLAN, which are best suited for VoIP and video surveillance deployments. Auto Surveillance VLAN is a new, industry-leading technology that consolidates data and surveillance video transmission through a single DXS-1210 Series switch, thus sparing businesses the expense of dedicated hardware and facilities. ASV also ensures quality real-time video monitoring and control without compromising the transmission of conventional network data. Auto Voice VLAN technology 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. The Differentiated Service Code Point (DSCP) markings on Ethernet packets enable different levels of service to be assigned to network traffic. As a result, these voice and video packets take precedence over other packets. In addition, with bandwidth control, network administrators can reserve bandwidth for important functions that require higher priority or more bandwidth.

Seamless Integration

The DXS-1210 Series comes with both RJ-45 and SFP+ ports capable of connecting to Cat. 6 and fiber for 10G Ethernet. The DXS-1210-10TS has 8 10GBASE-T ports and 2 SFP+ ports, the DXS-1210-12TC has an additional 2 10GBASE-T/SFP+ combo ports, while the DXS-1210-12SC has 10 10G SFP+ ports and 2 10GBASE-T/SFP+ combo ports. The DXS-1210-16TC also has 12 10GBASE-T ports, 2 SFP+ ports, and 2 10GBASE-T/SFP+ combo ports. This means the DXS-1210 Series can provide a flexible solution for upstream or downstream server connections, making network administration easy.

Secure your Network

D-Link’s innovative Safeguard Engine™ protects the switches against traffic flooding caused by malicious attacks. The DXS-1210 Series supports 802.1X port-based and host-based authentication, allowing the network to be authenticated through external RADIUS servers. The Access Control List (ACL) feature enhances network security and helps to protect the internal IT network. The DXS-1210 Series also features Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) spoofing prevention, which protects from attacks on the network that may allow an intruder to sniff data frames, modify traffic, or bring traffic to a halt altogether by sending fake ARP messages. To prevent ARP spoofing attacks, the switch uses packet control ACLs to block invalid packets that contain fake ARP messages. For added security, the DHCP server screening feature filters DHCP replies on unauthorised ports to prevent them from being assigned an IP address.

Versatile Management

The DXS-1210 Series comes with the D-Link Network Assistant (DNA) utility that simplifies the configuration of devices that support the D-Link Discovery Protocol. The D-Link Network Assistant utility easily allows customers to discover multiple D-Link Smart Managed Switches within the same L2 network segment and displays them on screen for instant access. With this utility, users do not need to change the IP address of their PC. This utility further allows for simultaneous configuration and basic setup of all discovered devices, including password changes and firmware upgrades. The DXS-1210 Series also supports D-View 7 and a full Command Line Interface (CLI) through Telnet. D-View 7 is a network management system that allows for the central management of critical network characteristics such as availability, reliability, resilience, and security.
