The DGS-1248T switch supports 4 Combo fiber SFP uplinks for uplinking to servers, storage, or other switching devices providing superior performance with exceptional value. The DGS-1248T delivers a high performance features set sufficient to monitor and secure an SMB network efficiently.
This Web Smart Switch also supports Spanning Tree, provides protection from unintentional cabling loops forming within a network infrastructure. 802.1D Spanning tree detects and breaks these loops ensuring network uptime.
When frames enter the switch, the D-Link Safeguard Engine detects and blocks broadcast/multicast/and unicast flooding which can overload a CPU and bring network traffic to a halt. In addition, The DGS-1248T also provides support for secure encrypted 802.1x port based user authentication, broadcast storm control, and up to 256 static MAC address entries.
In 802.1p a port can receive frames with varying priority tags and classify them based on these tags. For example a VoIP phone that supports 802.1p can assign a priority to its VoIP traffic. When it enters the switch, the switch can then prioritize it so that voice traffic is always clear and jitter free.
