Switching

If a switch fails, your business can experience any number of issues, from loss of connectivity for a group of users, to major disruption and downtime for the entire network. From the core of your network to its edge, D-Link’s comprehensive selection of switches includes 10 Gigabit, Gigabit, Fast Ethernet and PoE that range from entry level, to fully managed, more sophisticated solutions, including robust industrial switches for the harshest environments.

D-Link offers a comprehensive suite of business class switches that provide the foundation for a full range of high-value network solutions. D-Link Business switches fall into one of three categories:

  • Unmanaged Switch
  • Smart Managed Switch
  • Fully Managed Switch
Unmanaged Switches

Unmanaged Switches

Just plug it in and turn it on. With an Unmanaged Switch, there is no configuration necessary. Unmanaged Switches are cost effective and ideal for smaller networking needs. When all you need is a simple device that reliably forwards Ethernet frames, choose a D-Link Unmanaged Switch.

Smart Managed Switches

Typically managed using a browser-based Graphical User Interface (GUI), Smart Managed Switches are attractively priced and support an essential set of Layer 2/2+ switching functions including VLAN, Link Aggregation, QoS, Bandwidth Limiting, Access Control Lists, and more. D-Link offers six families of Smart Managed Switches to meet the networking needs of businesses of all sizes. Choose a D-Link Smart Managed Switch when you want to control who's on the network and make sure they're getting the best performance possible.

Fully Managed Switches

Typically managed either using either a Command Line Interface (CLI) or Graphical User Interface (GUI), Fully Managed Switches support a complex suite of Layer 2, Layer 2+ and Layer 3 switching functions. D-Link Managed Switches are easy to set up, configure and monitor. They can be managed individually, or in the case of D-Link Stackable Managed switches, as part of a stack. Choose a D-Link Fully Managed Switch when network performance and security are critical, and compromise is not an option.
