Whether you are managing a small network with just a few 10G links, or a large multi-campus Enterprise network with 10G links throughout, D-Link has the right switch for you.

10GbE Product

Copper or Fibre - Your Choice

10Gbps Ethernet is no longer restricted to fiber optic media only. Recent advancements in chip design have made 10GBASE-T (10Gbps over copper) more economical and easier to deploy than ever before. Direct Attach Copper (DAC) is also a popular choice, especially for shorter distance, latency sensitive applications.

Choose the solution that's right for your networking needs.

Media Type Distance Switch Interface Typical Latency Typical Application
Copper DAC (Twinax) Up to 7m SFP+ Better Server/storage rack
CAT-6 ~ 30m RJ-45 Good SMB aggregation switching
CAT-6a Up to 100m
Fibre MMF Up to 400m SFP+ Best Campus network
SMF 100km+
