D-Link announced Tuesday its new generation of Layer 3 Managed Gigabit Switches – the DGS-3630 Series. The series now offers PoE models DGS-3630-28PC with 24 PoE ports and DGS-3630-52PC with 48 PoE ports to provide a complete Layer 3 fully managed switch portfolio.
The DGS-3630 Series switches deliver scalable software management and software image upgrades to access additional advanced features according to network requirements. The Switch Resource Management (SRM) feature allows the hardware table size to be changed so that switch functions can be optimized based on different applications.
Working at wire-speed performance, the switches can aggregate all the traffic in the network. Built-in 10 Gigabit uplink ports and stacking technology allow the switches to accommodate larger enterprise networks. Full Layer 3 protocol support, OAM features, and advanced QoS offer scalable and efficient network operation, administration and maintenance, even in stressful metro Ethernet infrastructures.
The DGS-3630 Series switches offer embedded 10 Gigabit SFP+ stacking/uplink ports provide high bandwidth port density; Switch Resource Management (SRM) feature provides profile-based resource management that allows administrators to quickly allocate switch resources depending on the needs of different applications; DHCP auto-configuration and auto-image upgrading which can be used to configure and upgrade multiple switches automatically, and the Auto Surveillance VLAN feature enables the switches to prioritize surveillance traffic in the network to provide effective surveillance system management
The line also offers hardware-based Dying Gasp feature allows the switch to retain enough power to automatically send out an alert message in the event of device failure; built-in 6 kV surge protection feature minimizes the risk of switch damage resulting from electrical surges, thus reducing service downtime and repair costs, and an RJ-45 alarm port to control external sensors and alarms.
It also features static routing and full L3 routing protocol suite for enterprise integration, including OSPF, BGP, VRF-Lite, and L3 multicast, besides multicast routing that delivers enhanced efficiency and optimized performance by eliminating traffic redundancy and distributed applications.
The DGS-3630 Series switches are now available for purchase from any of D-Link’s resellers and distributors.
