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.

Working at wire-speed performance, the switches can aggregate all the traffic in the network. 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 new 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. “The DGS-3630 Series can operate as core, distribution or access layer switches, and high port densities, switch stacking, and easy management make them ideal for a wide variety of business networking applications.”

The D-Link DGS-3630 was independently tested and verified as having outstanding performance by The Tolly Group, a leading global provider of third-party validation services for vendors of IT products and services. The report1 notes, “the D-Link DGS-3630 switch matched or exceeded the performance of the Cisco system Catalyst across all performance tests.”

Key Features

The new DGS-3630 Series switches offer several features and benefits, including:

Performance:

  • Embedded 10 Gigabit SFP+ stacking/uplink ports provide high bandwidth port density
  • The intelligent Switch Resource Management (SRM) feature provides profile-based resource management that allows administrators to quickly allocate switch resources depending on the needs of different applications
  • DHCP auto-configuration and auto-image upgrading can be used to configure and upgrade multiple switches automatically
  • The Auto Surveillance VLAN feature enables the switches to prioritize surveillance traffic in the network to provide effective surveillance system management

Reliability:

  • The hardware-based Dying Gasp feature allows the switch to retain enough power to automatically send out an alert message in the event of device failure
  • The unprecedented built-in 6 kV surge protection feature minimizes the risk of switch damage resulting from electrical surges, thus reducing service downtime and repair costs
  • An RJ-45 alarm port to control external sensors and alarms

Additional Features:

  • Extensive Routing Feature: Static routing and full L3 routing protocol suite for enterprise integration, including OSPF, BGP, VRF-Lite, and L3 multicast
  • Multicast Routing: Enhanced efficiency and optimized performance by eliminating traffic redundancy and distributed applications

Availability

The DGS-3630 Series switches are now available for purchase from any of D-Link’s resellers and distributors. For additional information, visit http://us.dlink.com/.
