D-Link has introduced its latest addition to the EasySmart line of Gigabit Ethernet smart switches, the DGS-1100-24P twenty-four port PoE+ switch.†Designed for all types of networks, the new PoE switch is enclosed in a rugged metal housing and is installable in any standard 19-inch rack.
“With 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the DGS-1100-24P is a solid switching solution for any business,” says Steven Olen, director of product marketing, D-Link Systems Inc. “It can power up to 12 PoE devices such as IP cameras, and still has 12 additional Gigabit ports for connections to other devices, such as non-PoE cameras, NVRs, VMS systems, or other network switches.”
The DGS-1100-24P complies with the IEEE 802.3at PoE+ standard (up to 30W) and has a 100W power budget, which can be allocated across the 12 PoE ports in any manner necessary.
Managed via a browser-based Graphical User Interface (GUI), all D-Link EasySmart switches support L2 switching features such as an 802.1Q VLAN, QoS, bandwidth limiting, Link Aggregation, and IGMP Snooping.†The EasySmart management interface also provides administrators with a convenient way to monitor and control PoE functions, including displaying real-time PoE power usage and remotely rebooting IP cameras or access points from anywhere on the network, including over the Internet.
Additional features include:†
- Auto Surveillance VLAN: Ensures real-time video quality for monitoring and control without compromising the transmission of conventional network data.
- Bandwidth Control: Network administrators can reserve bandwidth for important functions that require more bandwidth.
- D-Link Network Assistant Utility: Allows administrators to discover multiple D-Link Smart Switches within the same L2 network segment for a quick initial setup of the Smart Switches.
The DGS-1100-24P, priced at $389.99, begins shipping in January 2015.†The PoE switch will be available throughout D-Link’s network of channel partners, including value-added resellers, distributors, and online retailers. Detailed specifications are available online at D-Link’s website.
