D-Link's DGS-1100 Series is an addition to EasySmart Switches featuring D-Link Green Technology. Compliant with IEEE802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet, this switch consumes less power during idle periods. The DGS-1100 Series consists of 16 and 24 Gigabit port models and comes in a compact 11-inch desktop/rackmount enclosure. These switches also implement D-Link Green features that detect link status and cable length and adjust power usage accordingly. Switch management can be performed through a web management interface or through the SmartConsole Utility. The DGS-1100 Series also supports features such as port VLANs, Quality of Service (QoS), and IGMP snooping to optimize performance for multicast applications. Its fanless design allows for quieter operation and provides a longer product life.
The DGS-1100 Series provides an affordable solution for Small and Medium Business, without IT staff. They are also suitable for Enterprise deployment, such as in branch officesand meeting rooms that require simple network management.The DGS-1100 Series supports Auto Surveillance VLAN (ASV), which is best suited for video surveillance deployment. Auto Surveillance VLAN is a new, industry-leading technology incorporated into the D-Link EasySmart Switch Series that consolidates data and surveillance video transmission through a single switch, thus sparing businesses the expense of dedicated hardware and facilities. ASV also ensures the quality of real-time video for monitoring and control without compromising the transmission of conventional network data. In addition, with Bandwidth Control, network administrators can reserve bandwidth for important functions that require more bandwidth or might have high priority.
