LAS VEGAS, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- (ISC WEST 2013, Booth #13119) --
D-Link, the cost-effective, standards-based unified networking solutions
provider for small- and medium-sized businesses, expanded its portfolio of
EasySmart switches with the introduction of its latest DGS-1100-08P switch.
The DGS-1100-08P is D-Link's first EasySmart switch to deliver
Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) capabilities for easy IP surveillance, VoIP phone
and access point deployment.


Equipped with eight 10/100/1000 BASE-T Ethernet ports, the DGS-1100-08P
complies with the IEEE 802.3af PoE standard. A power budget of 64W ensures
plenty of power is available for a variety of IP Cameras and other powered
devices. The DGS-1100-08P supports an intuitive SmartConsole Utility and a
web-based management interface ideal for users who have no advanced network
training. This management interface allows network administrators to control
and monitor the PoE attributes on each port, including priority assignments,
power threshold limits and actual PoE power usage. 

"Offering a minimal price increase from an unmanaged PoE switch, D-Link's
latest DGS-1100-08P EasySmart switch provides a cost-effective solution with
added networking and PoE features and functionalities," said Steven Olen,
director of product marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. "Unlike an unmanaged
switch, the DGS-1100-08P offers smarter management of the PoE power budget,
power saving features and the ability to reboot IP cameras or other PoE
devices remotely. In addition, expanded management functionality and
additional tools enable faster installation, easier maintenance, and better
visibility into network health – all contributing to a smarter network

The DGS-1100-08P also supports Auto Surveillance VLAN optimized for video
surveillance deployment to consolidate data and surveillance video traffic
through a single switch. With no manual intervention, traffic from networked
cameras is automatically assigned to a high-priority VLAN, ensuring quality
and security of transmissions, even during periods of high network
congestion. As a result, costs of deploying and maintaining a separate
network for surveillance traffic only are eliminated.

More About the DGS-1100-08P

Additional features and performance benefits include:

  oLoopback Detection – detects unintentional loops created by a specific
    port and automatically shuts down the affected port
  oCable Diagnostics – examines the quality of the copper cables and
    determines the type of cable error
  oStorm Control – monitors broadcast, multicast or unknown unicast traffic
    and blocks or discards packets which could flood the network when the
    defined threshold is exceeded
  oQuality of Service (QoS) and Bandwidth Control – reserves bandwidth for
    important functions that require more bandwidth or might have high
  oIGMP Snooping – reduces the loading of L3 multicast routers and saves
    bandwidth in network throughput
  oIEEE802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet – cuts down power consumption when
    port utilization is low
  oD-Link Green Technology – detects the length of connected cables and
    adjusts power usage for cables shorter than 20 meters; link status is
    monitored to reduce power consumption when a port link is down


The DGS-1100-08P will be on display at ISC West, April 10-12, 2013 in Las
Vegas in D-Link's booth (#13119). The DGS-1100-08P will be available in June
2013 through D-Link's vast network of channel partners, including value-added
resellers and distributors. Detailed specifications and information is
available online at www.dlink.com.
