Optimal Network Performance
The DES-1210-52 Series Fast Ethernet Smart Managed Switches are equipped with 8, 24, or 48 10/100 Mbps ports, 2 10/100/1000BASE-T ports, and 2 combo 10/100/1000BASE-T/SFP ports. Integrating advanced management and security functions for enhanced performance and scalability, they support IPv6 management, ensuring your network investment stays protected after upgrading from IPv4.
With PoE/PoE+ options and multiple management options including SNMP, Web Management, D-Link Network Assistant Utility, and Compact Command Line, this series of switches provides a complete and affordable solution that is ideal for small and medium businesses and the enterprise edge.
The DES-1210 Series is designed to provide SMB users with complete control over their network. With Fast Ethernet and Gigabit copper ports capable of connecting to existing CAT5/5E/6 twisted-pair cables, these switches eliminate the need for expensive network re-building. The DES-1210 Series allows for flexible connections to a network backbone or server. Additionally, all ports support auto-negotiation of MDI/MDIX crossover, eliminating the need for crossover cables or uplink ports.
Extensive Layer 2 Features
Equipped with a complete lineup of L2 features, these switches include IGMP Snooping, Port Mirroring, Spanning Tree, and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). IEEE 802.3x Flow Control allows servers to directly connect to the switch for reliable data transfer. 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 allow network administrators to quickly examine the quality of the copper cables and also determine the type of cable error.
QoS, Bandwidth Control
The DES-1210 Series supports Auto Surveillance VLAN (ASV), and Auto Voice VLAN, which are best suited for video surveillance and VoIP deployments. Auto Surveillance VLAN is a new, industry-leading technology that consolidates surveillance video transmission and data through a single Fast Ethernet Smart Managed Switch, thus sparing businesses the expense of dedicated hardware and facilities. ASV also ensures the quality of realtime video for monitoring and control without compromising the flow of conventional network data. In addition, with bandwidth control, network administrators can reserve bandwidth for important functions that might require higher bandwidth or priority.
Secure Your Network
D-Link’s innovative Safeguard Engine protects against traffic flooding caused by virus attacks. The DES-1210 Series also supports 802.1x port-based authentication, allowing the network to be authenticated through external RADIUS servers. In addition, the Access Control List (ACL) feature enhances network security and protects the internal IT network. Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) Spoofing Prevention helps prevent the network from being compromised by hackers using spoofed ARPs.
The DES-1210 Series provides the D-Link Network Assistant Utility that enables administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level. The utility allows customers to easily discover multiple D-Link Fast Ethernet Smart Managed Switches within the same L2 network segment. With this utility, users do not need to change the IP address of their PC, greatly simplifying the initial setup of the switches.
