D-LINK - Wireless, Switching
Wireless Access Points
D-Link has a range of robust wireless access points able to work in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz
frequencies.
Strong enough to be deployed at the very core of your network, they give greatly enhanced
reliability and coverage, including advanced security features to keep you completely safe from
intrusion.
Backwards compatible with all Wi-Fi technologies, the wireless range includes single and dual
band Wireless N devices that are plenum-rated for mounting on walls and ceilings.
Benefits:

Bandwidth and speed with up to 300Mbps

Extended coverage to reach dead spots in areas of poor signal

Powerful signal strength so the connection remains stable even when the environment changes

Strong encryption and authentication for security of data transmission

802.11n standard for compatibility with new Wireless N devices
Unified Wireless
Unified wireless is a scalable wireless local area network solution that combines wired and
wireless services. In contrast to legacy wireless networks that provide access via independent
wireless access points or routers, unified wireless make use of centralized control policies that
allow network administrators to manage the configuration of all access points.
When supported by a compatible wireless switch, administrators need only send software images
to each access point and then apply the desired policy as a one-time configuration.
Smart Switches
D-Link's Smart Switches include advanced management and security functions that provide
improved performance and scalability.
The switches can be managed through a number of methods that provide extra flexibility for
monitoring and configuring. Security is assured with Access Control List filtering and D-Link's
Safeguard Engine to protect against unauthorized access and virus outbreaks in the network.

The Smart Series includes switches that incorporate the high-power Power over Ethernet (PoE)
standard, which allows for increased power levels to be delivered to network devices such as IP
phones, access points and network cameras. Additional features, such as Auto Voice VLAN and
Auto Surveillance VLAN separate and prioritize critical traffic for telephony and IP surveillance.
Benefits:

Many of the benefits of a managed switch, but without the complexity or cost

Ease of configuration through web management

Ideal for users wishing to build small to medium-size networks but who don't need the
advanced features necessary for corporate deployments

PoE compliant eliminating the need for external power supplies allowing you to utilize current
cables and reducing cable clutter for a more tidier system
EasySmart
The simplest and most affordable of the D-Link Smart Switch range, EasySmart switches
enables Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) customers to take their first step into a managed
network. Fan-less and configured with 16 or 24 Gigabit ports, simple installation and tools to
prioritize, limit and protect network traffic designed specifically for customers with limited
expertise.
Smart
The Smart Switch series offer greater flexibility with a choice of 8, 10, 24 or 48 Gigabit ports,
the larger models also have combo ports for fiber connectivity. Power over Ethernet is available
as an option, which enables users to utilize their existing network infrastructure eliminating the
need for additional power outlets.
Managed Switches
D-Link Managed Switches offer businesses a perfect low-cost, feature-rich, entry-level option.
The switches can be deployed to set up Gigabit connections to desktops to create a company-
wide network backbone. Managed switches feature built-in support for remote setup and
management.
The advanced Access Control List and user authentication function effectively extends the
network security coverage from core to edge.
The unique D-Link Safeguard Engine protects the switches from the threat of worms and viruses,
increasing overall reliability and serviceability.
Benefits:


Allows administrators to monitor traffic across the network, introduce redundancy and control
access

Highly scalable switch solution for future business growth

Ideal for networks with numerous users and applications, where security, reliability and security
is needed

Support for 10Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and other high bandwidth technologies

PoE compliant, eliminating the need for external power supplies allowing you to utilize current
cables and reducing cable clutter for a more tidier system
Layer 2
The Data Link Layer specifies how the network is shared and data moved around. It is here that
Ethernet switches mostly operate, forwarding traffic based on the universally implemented MAC
address of attached devices.
Layer 3
Layer 3 Switches operate at the network layer and use both MAC and IP addresses to
communicate with the rest of the network. The universally accepted IP protocol allows for large-
sized networks that can grow virtually limitless and offers advanced features for extra flexibility.
Wireless
D-Link's Wireless Switches create seamless converged wired and wireless networks. Seamless
roaming, centralized AP management, and control through a web-based GUI or command line
interface allow for high performance and easy-to-maintain networks.
Security
Enterprise level network security
In today's inter-connected, web-based business environment, a company's network security is
key to their stability, productivity and success.
Increasingly businesses with mobile or remote workers, or that who employ social media as a
tool have a greater likelihood of experiencing crippling data network security breaches. D-Link's
Network Security Solutions will help you maintain a healthy network free from virus attacks,
unauthorized intrusion and harmful content. With a full array of components, including Unified
Threat Management (UTM) appliances, firewalls and network switches, D-Link security
solutions work together to prevent network disruption from internal and external threats and are
easy to install, manage and update

UTMs Firewalls
UTM firewalls create a safer network environment for companies using a built-in extreme-
performance Anti-Virus acceleration engine together with stream-based virus scanning
technology.
Services Routers
D-Link's Unified Services Routers offer secure, high-performance networking solutions to
address the growing needs of businesses. The routers are packed with advanced security and
management features such as IEE 802.11n, secure wireless access, 3G WAN redundancy, IPv6
and comprehensive VPN features that can also be integrated easily into your existing
infrastructure. These routers empower your mobile workers with remote access anywhere and
anytime through the powerful VPN engine to allow for secure connections to company
resources.
Unified and Network Attached Storage
D-Link Network Attached Storage (NAS) and Unified Network Storage solutions are easy to
deploy and provide file sharing and data protection on the network. Unlike traditional NAS
devices, we offer both file sharing and concurrent block access performance (iSCSI) for small
business server applications.
ShareCenterTM devices will connect directly to your router or any network point in your Ethernet
infrastructure. The NAS solutions will work seamlessly with Windows, Mac or Linux. Data can
be kept securely and confidentially thanks to advanced disk quota management combined with
user / group permissions.
D-Link ShareCenterTM NAS devices also incorporate FTP servers to allow the downloading or
uploading of files remotely over the internet, and integrated media and iTunes server to support
the streaming of photos, music and video to compatible media players.
Network Video Recorders
D-Link's standalone wired network video recorders (NVR) support 8-channel network cameras
with MJPEG, MPEG4 or H.264 recording with two high-speed 3.5-inch SATA hard disks for
long-term recording.
The NVR can record video from IP cameras located in local or remote sites into a dedicated
HDD storage without turning on a computer. The NVRs support real-time monitoring and
playback anytime, anywhere, via a web browser.
