D-Link Green/Power Saving Performance
Compliant with IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), the DGS-1100 Series consumes less energy by cutting down on power consumption when port utilization is low. By deploying compatible devices, users can cut operating costs and even cut down on additional cooling equipment, helping small and medium-sized businesses stay within their budgets. The DGS-1100 Series also features D-Link Green technology that helps save energy automatically. The switches monitor the link status of every port and significantly reduce power consumption of the interface when there is no link or network traffic detected.
Easy to Deploy
The DGS-1100 Series supports an intuitive client-based utility (D-Link Network Assistant) and a web-based management interface. The client-based D-Link Network Assistant (DNA) discovers all D-Link Smart Managed Switches within the same Layer 2 network segment, making the initial setup quick and easy. This allows extensive switch configuration and basic administration of discovered devices, including password changes and firmware upgrades. The web-based interface provides a user-friendly way for network administrators to manage the switch down to the port level. The interface can be accessed from a web browser, allowing the switches to be controlled from any PC that is connected to the network.
Surveillance VLAN and Bandwidth Control
The DGS-1100 Series supports surveillance VLAN for IP surveillance deployments. This gives video traffic a dedicated VLAN and higher priority through the switch, separating surveillance traffic from the rest of the network. This ensures security and guarantees the quality of the video traffic, sparing businesses the added cost of dedicated surveillance hardware. Bandwidth Control can reserve bandwidth on a per-port basis for important functions that require larger bandwidth or have higher priority.
The 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 authorized 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 load of L3 multicast routers and save bandwidth in network throughput.
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 shuts down the affected port. Cable Diagnostics helps network administrators quickly examine the quality of the copper cables, recognize the cable type, and detect cable errors.
