Layer2+ SmartPro Switch with 10 10GBaseX SFP+ Ports and 2 10GBase-T/SFP+ Combo Ports
The D-Link DXS-1210-12SC 10 Gigabit Ethernet SmartPro Switch is a cost-effective 10 Gigabit switch capable of servicing a range of network needs in any business. Supporting 10GBase-T/SFP+ combo ports, this switch provides connection flexibility across a network allowing easier network integration. With high performance and low latency, the DXS-1210-12SC fulfills the needs for virtualization, cloud services, and server-to-server applications, making it perfect for Small-to-Medium-Business (SMB) customers.
By incorporating D-Link Green technology, this switch is capable of saving power without sacrificing operational performance or functionality. The switch features built-in smart fans with internal heat sensors that monitor and detect temperature changes and react accordingly by utilizing different fan speeds for different temperatures. At lower temperatures, the fans will run slower, reducing the switch power consumption and noise. Link status drastically reduces power consumption by automatically putting ports without a link into a sleep mode. The DXS-1210-12SC takes the approach to green IT one step further by incorporating a special chipset with advanced silicon technology for efficient use of energy.
Extensive Management and Layer 2 Features
The DXS-1210-12SC comes with a complete lineup of L2 features, includes 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-1210-12SC 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, industry-leading technology that consolidates data and surveillance video transmission through a single DXS-1210-12SC switch, thus 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.
Secure your Network
D-Link innovative Safeguard EngineTM protects the switch against traffic flooding caused by malicious attacks. The DXS-1210-12SC 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-1210-12SC also features Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) spoofing prevention, which protects 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 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 prevent them from being assigned an IP address.
The DXS-1210-12SC 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 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-1210-12SC also supports D-View 7 and a full Command Line Interface (CLI) through the console port and Telnet. D-View 7 is a network management system that allows for the central management of critical network characteristics such as availability, reliability, resilience, and security.
The DXS-1210-12SC comes with both RJ-45 and SFP+ ports capable of connecting to Cat. 6 and fiber for 10G Ethernet. The DXS-1210-12SC has 12 10GBase-T ports, 2 SFP+ ports, and 2 10GBase-T/SFP+ combo ports. This means the DXS-1210-12SC can provide a flexible solution for upstream or downstream server connections, making network administration easy.
