This version of the DES-3200 Series Layer 2 Managed Switch comes with 48 10/100BaseT ports, two combo 1000BaseT ports and two Gigabit SFP ports.
The DES-3200 is a member of D-Link’s Layer 2 xStack Managed Switch family designed for the Metro ETTX, FTTX, and Enterprise market. The DES-3200 offers the beneficial design of 2 Gigabit/SFP Combo ports and 2 dedicated SFP ports which provide up to 4 Gbps uplink bandwidth or dual Ethernet ring topology support.
It supports 802.1X Port-based/Host-based Access Control, Guest VLAN, and RADIUS and TACAS+ Authentication for strict access control over the network. The IP-MAC-Port Binding feature allows administrators to bind a source IP address with an associated MAC for a defined port number to enhance user access control. Furthermore with the DHCP Snooping feature, the switch automatically understands the IP/MAC pairs by snooping DHCP packets and saving them to the IMPB white list. These features play a significant role in keeping the network secure and auditable. The built-in D-Link Safeguard Engine identifies and prioritizes “CPU interested” packets to prevent malicious traffic from interrupting normal network flows and protects switch operation. In addition, the Access Control List (ACL) feature enhances the network security and switch performance.
For mission critical environments the DES-3200 Series supports 802.1D-2004 edition, 802.1w and 802.1s Spanning Tree Protocols (STP). STP allows you to configure the switch with a redundant backup bridge path, so transmission and reception of packets can be guaranteed
in the event of any failed switch on the network. The switch also supports 802.1AX (formerly 802.3ad) Link Aggregation, enabling you to group multiple ports in parallel to form a single port, increasing bandwidth and redundancy for higher availability. For Quality of Service(QoS), the switches support 802.1p. This standard is a mechanism that allows real-time traffic classification into 8 priority levels mapped to 4 queues. Packet classification is based on TOS, DSCP, MAC Addresses, IP Addresses, VLAN ID, TCP/UDP port number, protocol type and user defined packet content, which enables flexible configuration especially for realtime streaming multimedia applications such as voice over IP.
