Global connectivity solutions provider D-Link Corporation has launched the DGS-1250 Series Smart Managed Switches with 10G uplink port, PoE output, high port density, multiple management interfaces, and advanced security features in the Middle East and Africa (MEA).
All models include four built-in 10G SFP+ slots, providing high bandwidth connections. Support for IEEE 802.2af/at and a higher PoE budget up to 370 watts allow the PoE models DGS-1250-28XMP and DGS-1250-52XMP to power more devices and be installed in remote locations.
A variety of management features such as the D-Link Network Assistant (DNA) and support for CLI (full management support will be available after the second firmware release) and SNMP that can work with D-Link D-View 7.0 or other NMS will allow for easy integration and management of the network. The series is also equipped with a complete lineup of L2 features, including IGMP snooping, port mirroring, Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), as well as L3 lite Static Routing.
The DGS-1250 range of models include: DGS-1250-28X: 4*10GE SFP+, 24 GE; DGS-1250-28XMP: 4*10GE SFP+, 24 PoE GE, 370 Watts; DGS-1250-52X: 4*10GE SFP+, 48 GE and DGS-1250-52XMP: 4*10GE SFP+, 48 PoE GE, 370 Watts
The range is powered with several features such as its static routing- network administrators can divide the network into VLANs, increasing network efficiency. The Auto Voice VLAN and Surveillance Mode- allows voice and video traffic to be automatically identified and handled differently than regular network traffic. D-Link’s Safeguard Engine helps protect switches against traffic flooding from malicious attacks. The Access Control List (ACL)- enhances network security and helps protect internal IT network. The IP-MAC-Port Binding- enhances user access control to prevent unauthorised access to network devices. It features 802.1x Port-based Authentication, which authenticates all users and devices accessing the network.
The DGS-1250 series switches are currently available for purchase from D-Link resellers and distributors.
