"Today's businesses and educational organizations face ever-increasing needs
to expand bandwidth, performance, switching capacity, overall reliability, and
energy savings," said Steven Olen, director of product marketing, D-Link
Systems, Inc. "The DXS-3600 series is designed to meet all of these market
needs and deliver a cost effective solution for a range of network
environments including small to medium sized businesses, enterprise
environments, data centers, school campuses, healthcare facilities, and
government organizations."

The DXS-3600-16S and DXS-3600-32S support eight and 24 fixed 10-Gigabit
Ethernet SFP+ ports respectively, with the option to add more ports using an
expansion module. The expansion modules provide extra 1000BASE-T ports,
10-Gigabit SFP+ ports, 40-Gigabit QSFP+ uplinks, or low cost 10GBASE-T
interfaces for a wide range of applications.

The DXS-3600 switches support Data Center Bridging protocols to help prevent
data loss during network congestion, and feature selectable store-and-forward,
or cut-through switching modes to reduce network latency. The switches also
utilize two hot-swappable power modules for 1+1 power redundancy and load
sharing, and three hot-swappable smart fans for redundancy. The smart fans
monitor and detect temperature changes and react accordingly by utilizing
different fan speeds for different temperatures.
