Power & Value
The D-Link DGS-1250 Series Smart Managed Switches deliver real value as an Enterprise Access and Small-to-Medium Business (SMB) Access/Aggregation solution. They provide a range of physical interfaces (including a Console Port w/full CLI), multiple management interfaces, 11 Web languages, QoS enablement, and Advanced Layer-2 w/Lite Layer-3 features.
The DGS-1250 Series switches support 24 or 48 x 10/100/1000BASE-T ports, with each switch also supporting an additional 4 x 10G SFP+ ports for optical connections using multimode or single-mode SFP transceivers – enabling real network horsepower at a value price.
Extensive Management and Advanced Features
The DGS-1250 Series comes equipped with IGMP snooping, Port Mirroring, Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). The IEEE 802.3x Flow Control function allows servers to directly connect to the switch for fast, reliable data transfers.
The series also supports advanced features such as Static Routing, which allows for communication between different user groups in different VLAN segments in a network. And, because the switches can manage internal routing, the network router can be assigned to handle external traffic.
The DGS-1250 Series comes with the D-Link Network Assistant (DNA) utility so admins can remotely control their network to the port level. DNA allows customers to easily discover multiple D-Link Smart Managed Switches within the same L2 network segment and display them onscreen for instant access.
The DGS-1250 Series includes a wide range of port and media types. All models in the DGS-1250 Series feature four 10G SFP+ ports, allowing you to choose the most suitable media type for your requirements. All DGS-1250 Series PoE switches include support for IEEE 802.3af/at and higher power budgets, allowing more PoE devices to be powered by the switch and for devices to be installed in remote locations without immediate access to power outlets. Furthermore, the DGS-1250-28XMP and DGS-1250-52XMP can supply PoE power up to 370W providing even more power for connected devices.
The DGS-1250 Series comes equipped with a complete lineup of L2 features, including IGMP snooping, port mirroring, Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). The IEEE 802.3x Flow Control function allows servers to directly connect to the switch for fast, reliable data transfers. The DGS-1250 Series also supports advanced features such as static routing, which allow network administrators to divide the network into VLANs, increasing network efficiency. Network maintenance features include loopback detection and cable diagnostics. Loopback detection significantly speeds up troubleshooting by automatically detecting and shutting down switching loops. The cable diagnostics feature, designed primarily for administrators and customer service representatives, determines the cable quality and quickly discovers errors, allowing for swift diagnostics and maintenance.
The DGS-1250 Series supports Auto Voice VLAN and Surveillance Mode, which allows voice and video traffic to be automatically identified and handled differently than regular network traffic. Auto Voice VLAN detects Voice over IP (VoIP) traffic and automatically segments it from the rest of the network, adding a layer of isolation and allowing Quality of Service (QoS) to be applied. Surveillance Mode detects compatible ONVIF cameras and places them in a surveillance VLAN, allowing a single switch to be used for voice, video, and data, removing the need for dedicated hardware and reducing maintenance costs. Surveillance Mode also includes its own Web UI, making surveillance features easily accessible and simplifying management of your surveillance network.
Advanced Access Control
D-Link’s innovative Safeguard Engine helps to protect the switches against traffic flooding caused by malicious attacks. The DGS-1250 Series supports 802.1X port-based authentication, allowing clients to be authenticated through external RADIUS servers. The Access Control List (ACL) feature helps to enhance network security and helps to protect the internal IT network. The DGS-1250 Series also features Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) spoofing prevention, which helps to provide protection from attacks on the network that could allow an intruder to sniff data frames, modify traffic, or bring traffic to a halt altogether by sending fake ARP messages. To help prevent ARP spoofing attacks, the switch uses packet control ACLs to block invalid packets that contain fake ARP messages. The DHCP server screening filters DHCP replies on unauthorized ports to prevent them from being assigned an IP address.
The DGS-1250 Series comes with the D-Link Network Assistant (DNA) utility that enables administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level. The D-Link Network Assistant utility furthermore allows customers to easily discover multiple D-Link Smart Managed Switches within the same L2 network segment and display them onscreen for instant access. With this utility, users do not need to change the IP address of their PC. This allows for simultaneous configuration and setup of all discovered devices, including password changes and firmware upgrades. The DGS-1250 Series supports Command Line Interface (CLI) through console port. SNMP is also supported which allows for the central management of network assets, remote configuration, and logging functio
