D-Link A/NZ launches affordable 10 Gigabit Smart Managed Switches with high port counts and 25GE support

SYDNEY, 10 February 2022 – D-Link A/NZ has extended its 10 Gigabit Smart Managed Switch range with two new models that boast a higher port count and 25GE support. The new DXS-1210-28S and DXS-1210-28T 10 Gigabit Smart Switches offer cost-effective, intelligent options as potential Enterprise Aggregation points, affordable Access layer solutions, or as SMB Core Switch network roles.

D-Link A/NZ MD Graeme Reardon said, “The new DXS-1210-28S and DXS-1210-28T Smart Managed Switches represent truly affordable 10GB Switching. The DXS Series offer 10GB ports across the entire range and joining this series we now have the DXS-1210-28T which enjoys not only 10GB ports, but also four 25GB uplink ports which users could combine into a 100GB uplink if necessary. Alongside this, the DXS-1210-28S has all 10GB SFP+ ports and 10GBASE-T copper ports, giving users many deployment options between these two new Switches. In short, they are advanced, Smart Managed switches that provide a cost-effective way for businesses to get access to a full 10GB switch solution.”

The DXS-1210-28S and DXS-1210-28T represent two new high port count additions to the DXS-1210 Series. From access and aggregation in an enterprise network, to forming the core of a smaller business network, these new additions provide intuitive, flexible and cost-effective options for IT Managers.

Specifically, the DXS-1210-28T comes with 24 x 10GBASE-T and 4 x 25GE SFP28 ports. The 10GBASE-T ports provide an easy upgrade to 10 Gigabit connectivity using existing CAT6/7 cabling while the 25GE SFP28 ports offer high bandwidth connections to server farms or the network core. 25GE SFP28 ports are backwards compatible with 10GB SFP+, offering network administrators deployment flexibility and an upgrade path to 25GB or 100GB uplinks.

The DXS-1210-28S is equipped with 24 x SFP+ ports and 4 x 10GBASE-T ports, allowing long-distance connectivity using fibre transceivers as well as the flexibility of additional copper ports. Both Switches offer high performance and low latency that are well suited to support virtualisation, cloud services, and server-to-server applications, making them the ideal choice to manage high-bandwidth demand.

The DXS-1210 Series Switches offer a robust line-up of L2 features to improve the manageability and performance of a network. These include port mirroring, Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). They also offer lite layer 3 functions such as wire speed inter-VLAN static routing to further enhance network efficiency by reducing the pressure on Routers and backbone networks.

Each of these DXS-1210 Series Switches also offers a range of sophisticated but simple to deploy security features including D-Link’s innovative Safeguard Engine™ which works to protect against traffic flooding caused by malicious attacks. Additionally, the Switches support 802.1X port-based and host-based authentication for network access control as well as ACL, ARP spoofing prevention and DHCP server screening to enhance network security and improve protection against threats.

D-Link’s Green technology capabilities help the switches minimise power and cooling demands, powering down unused ports, when possible, to save resources and reduce their carbon footprint.

The DXS-1210 Series can be managed through its multi-lingual Web UI, a full command-line interface (CLI) via Telnet or console port, as well as with the D-View Network Management System.
