D-Link announced its Layer 3 Managed Gigabit Switches and its D-Link DGS-3630 switch matched or exceeded the performance of the Cisco system Catalyst across all performance tests.
The DGS-3630 series offers PoE models DGS-3630-28PC with 24 PoE ports and DGS-3630-52PC with 48 PoE ports to provide a complete Layer 3 managed switch portfolio.
The Tolly Group, a provider of third-party validation services for vendors of IT products and services, said the D-Link DGS-3630 switch matched or exceeded the performance of the Cisco system Catalyst across all performance tests.
The DGS-3630 Series switches deliver scalable software management and software image upgrades to access additional advanced features according to network requirements. The Switch Resource Management (SRM) feature allows the hardware table size to be changed so that switch functions can be optimized based on different applications.
Built-in 10 Gigabit uplink ports and stacking technology allow the switches to easily accommodate larger enterprise networks. Full Layer 3 protocol support, OAM features, and advanced QoS offer scalable and efficient network operation, administration and maintenance, even in stressful metro Ethernet infrastructures.
“Designed for SMBs, SMEs, larger enterprises, and ISPs, these switches deliver high performance, flexibility, fault tolerance, and advanced software features for maximum return on investment,” said Steven Olen, product line manager, D-Link Systems.
