Product Highlights

The D-Link DXS-1210 Series 10 Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Switches are a cost-effective 10 Gigabit switch series capable of servicing a range of network needs in any business environment. Supporting a combination of 10GBASE-T and SFP ports, the DXS-1210 Series provides connection flexibility across a network, allowing easier network integration. 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 larger Enterprise environments or alternatively be employed at the center of a Small-to-Medium-Business (SMB) network. With high performance and low latency, this pair of 10G smart managed switches fulfills the needs of virtualization, cloud services, and server-to-server applications.

Extensive Management and Layer 2 Features

The DXS-1210 Series comes with a complete lineup of L2 features, including 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, industryleading technology that consolidates data and surveillance video transmission through a single DXS-1210 Series switch, 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 higher priority and an individual VLAN, these features guarantee the 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.

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 a comprehensive 10 language multi-lingual web UI, a full command line interface (CLI) through Telnet, a console port, as well as D-View 7; a network management system (NMS) that allows central management of critical network characteristics such as availability, reliability, resilience, and security.

Security Features

D-Link’s innovative Safeguard Engine™ helps protect 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 helps protect 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 help 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 unauthorized ports to help prevent them from being assigned an IP address.

Lifetime Warranty

D-Link offers a Lifetime Warranty and Next Business Day (NBD) hardware replacement on the DXS-1210 Series Smart Managed 10G switches to further its commitment to product quality and long-term customer confidence.
