Power Saving Performance
The EasySmart Switch Series offers best-in-class
power savings compared to other models. The
DES-1100-16 saves 27.32% more energy, and the
DES-1100-24 saves 10.7% more energy than a
conventional D-Link unmanaged switch. This gives
you an energy-efficient switch that costs less to
operate. Additionally, this allows EasySmart Switches
to run cooler, run silent, and have a longer lifespan.
Resilience/Performance Enhancement
Equipped with a complete lineup of L2 features, these
switches include IGMP snooping and port mirroring.
Network maintenance features include loopback
detection, which is used to detect loops created by
a specific port and automatically shuts down the
affected port. The DES-1100 Series also supports
802.1p Quality of Service (QoS) - a mechanism that
allows real-time traffic classification into eight
priority levels mapped to two queues.
Traffic & Security Features
The DES-1100 series supports 802.1Q VLAN and Port-
based VLAN, for traffic segregation. The bandwidth
control feature allows network administrators to
define the throughput levels for each port in order to
manage bandwidth. It also provides fine granularity
to define the ingress/egress traffic limits down to 512
kbps segments. Storm control enables the detection
of when broadcast, multicast, or unknown unicast
traffic hits the definable threshold. The switch will
start blocking or discarding packets which could
otherwise flood the network.
