Changes to D-Link’s DGS-1210 series include two new PoE smart managed Gigabit switches, the 8-port + 2 combo DGS-1210-10MP, and the 24-port + 4 combo DGS-1210-28MP. Aside from their sets of Layer 2 networking and switching features, both switches will support PoE across all ports and have budgets of 130W and 370W, respectively.
D-Link also announced new features for the DGS-1210 series: surveillance mode and static routing. Surveillance mode switches out the conventional management UI with a camera/NVR-centric interface featuring a network topology map that provides port information, including power consumption, device type, IP and MAC addresses and other link data. Static routing lets admins control communication between VLANs by letting them manually add routes into the switch’s routing table, increasing performance.
Two other features for the DGS-1210 series include dual image memory that offers the choosing of configuration ID and firmware images, and combo Gigabit ports that can use either copper or optical.
D-Link’s DGS-1210-10MP and DGS-1210-28MP are available through channel partners, while updated DGS-1210 models will be getting the newly announced features this month.
