The DGS-3200-10 Security Gigabit Switch offers a new generation of intelligence and defense displayed through the delivery of its high performance, flexible expansion, and robust security. It executes firm network security and comes with ACL functionalities, which secure the internal IT network against external viruses from invading the LAN. Built on fan-less technology, this compact, 11-inch switch produces and emits less heat and noise than the standard switch – ideal for office environments or circumstances that require undisturbed silence.
Comprehensive Security The DGS-3200-10 offers a complete list of endpoint security features to add confidence and assurance towards your network. It executes firm network security and comes with user-based identity control by implementing host-based 802.1x authentication/authorization, along with clientless Web-based Access Control (WAC) and MAC-based Access Control (MAC) for easy deployment. The incorporation of sophisticated ACL user-defined* functionality secures the internal IT network against viruses and worms from invading the LAN to provide better security. Innovative IP-MAC-Port Binding prevents ARP spoofing and man-in-middle attacks by disabling users from manually configuring their own IP or MAC address, and allowing administrators to assure that the IP information on the syslog server or firewall log is correct. Other security features like port security and traffic segmentation provide granular control to business environments, allowing administrators to enhance network security. D-Link’s joint security provides admission control and real-time defense through Microsoft’s NAP (Network Access Protection) and D-Link’s ZoneDefense* respectively. D-Link’s built-in ZoneDefense technology allows businesses to integrate their switch with D-Link’s NetDefend firewall to implement full coverage and a proactive security architecture.
IPv6 Technology The DGS 3200-10 supports IPv6 multicast host, the latest in protocol technology, enabling maximum performance of hardware. Features such as MLD snooping enhance efficiency in selective distribution by forwarding multicast data to ports that want to receive data, rather than flooding all ports in a VLAN. Features such as ACL based on IPv6 flow label and traffic class, as well as QoS based on IPv6 help provide fast and efficient service.
Resilience/Performance Enhancement To enhance network resilience, the DGS-3200-10 provides Spanning Tree protocols including 802.1D, 802.1w, and 802.1s for redundant bridge paths. 802.3ad Link Aggregation provides aggregated bandwidth between switches or servers to increase redundancy for higher availability. Quality of Service (QoS) incorporates multilayer function that supports 8 queues including 802.1p priority and packet classification based on TOS, DSCP, MAC, IP, VLAN ID and L4 TCP/UDP ports enabling Internet voice, video and streaming media applications to run smoothly. The DGS-3200-10 also provides a Safeguard Engine for network protection to increase switch’s reliability, serviceability and availability.
Traffic Control Network administrators can define throughput levels for each port to allocate its essential bandwidth. Broadcast storm control and flow-based bandwidth control can reduce the level of damage from virus attacks or P2P applications to the network.
Single IP Management The DGS-3200-10 simplifies and speeds up your management tasks as multiple switches can be configured, monitored and maintained from any workstation running a web browser through one unique IP address. This virtual stack is managed as a single object, having all units maintained by one IP address.
