The DGS-1510-20 provides a D-Link Network Assistant Utility and a web based management interface that enables administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level. The D-Link Network Assistant Utility allows customers to easily discover multiple D-Link SmartPro Switches within the same L2 network segment. With this utility, users do not need to change the IP address of their PC. It also simplifies the initial setup of the SmartPro Switches. Switches within the same L2 network segment that are connected to the user’s PC are displayed on screen for instant access. This allows extensive switch configuration and basic setup of discovered devices including password changes and firmware upgrades. The DGS-1510-20 also supports D-View 7 and a fully featured Command Line Interface (CLI) via dedicated out-of-band console port. D-View 7 is a Network Management System that allows for the central management of critical network characteristics such as availability, reliability, resilience, and security. CLI management of the switch is possible via console port and Telnet interfaces. This makes it possible to adjust basic settings, passwords, configuration files, and firmware with ease.
Secure your Network
D-Link’s innovative Safeguard Engine protects the switch against traffic flooding caused by virus attacks. The switch also support 802.1X port-based authentication, allowing the network to be authenticated through external RADIUS servers. In addition, the Access Control List (ACL) feature enhances network security and helps to protect the internal IT network by screening ingress traffic based on MAC or IP addresses. The DGS-1510-20 includes ARP Spoofing Prevention, which protects from attacks on the Ethernet network that may allow an intruder to sniff data frames, modify traffic, or bring traffic to a halt altogether by sending fake ARP messages to the network. To prevent ARP Spoofing attacks, the switch uses Packet Control ACLs to block invalid packets that contain fake ARP messages. For added security, the DHCP Server Screening feature screens rogue DHCP server packets from user ports to prevent unauthorized IP assignment.
10G SFP+ Stacking/Uplink Ports
Depending on whether linear or fault-tolerant ring stacking is implemented, users can use one or two 10-Gigabit SFP+ ports to create a physical stack. Six units or 288 Gigabit ports can be configured as a stack using optional direct attach cables to provide high bandwidth on the DGS-1510-20 with cost efficiency. Users can mix any of the DGS-1510 SmartPro models in a single stack to allow simultaneous and easy configuration, management and troubleshooting.
