D-Link® DES-3010GA is a high-performance managed Layer 2 switch that provides an ideal solution for workgroups and departments. The DES-3010GA is a great entry level managed switch for the SMB just starting out or the already established business looking to bring a managed solution to the desktop. The fiber uplink can provide connectivity for a small group of users over a larger distance such as on a campus or between indoor classrooms.
The DES-3010GA has (8) 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet ports and an SFP port for high seed uplinks to servers and/or backbones. In addition the DES-3010GA is also equipped with a copper 1000Base-T port for easy uplinks to standard Gigabit copper switches. With a total 10 ports, The DES-3010GA is truly unique in its class.
With a 5.6Gbps switch fabric, the DES-3010GA is a wire-speed, high performance switch. It includes support for Private VLANs (for isolating ports to protect privacy), and Guest VLANs (for temporary and limited access). Guest VLANs are useful when migrating end users to an 802.1x environment when existing workstations do not yet support the 802.1x protocol, and for delivering limited services such as Internet access to un-authenticated and short-term users.
When deployed in a school campus, bookstore, coffee house, or other retail establishment, the DES-3010GA can be used in conjunction with wireless Access Points to create a secure Internet Hot Spot. This allows visitors to access special services or surf the Internet, completely isolated from sensitive internal network data. Investment Protection
By widely supporting IEEE approved specifications, the DES-3010GA leverages your existing investment in a multi-vendor environment, while maximizing compatibility of business critical features like, Spanning Tree (802.1D/w/s), QoS (802.1p), Port mirroring, and network management.
D-Link’s DES-3010GA has robust support for standards based network management protocols (SNMP/RMON/BOOTP/Telnet/Web and port mirroring) enabling the DES-3010GA to be easily integrated into many third-party network management packages. Advanced Enterprise Features
The DES-3010GA brings advanced enterprise functions to a more affordable level while supporting advanced features: QoS/CoS based on (802.1p, Port, DSCP and TOS), rich security and management features such as 802.1x (Port & MAC Based Authentication), bandwidth control, and Guest VLANs.
The DES-3010GA also supports many of the features you would expect to see on a larger managed solution such as: IGMP snooping, 802.3ad (Link Aggregation), 256 VLANs, Private VLANs, and support for GVRP, traffic monitoring, SSH, SSL, SYSLOG, and more.
