DGS-1100 Series
EasySmart Switches

D-Link’s DGS-1100 Series of EasySmart Switches provide an affordable solution for SOHOs and
Smal and Medium Businesses as wel as enterprise deployment, such as in branch offices and
meeting rooms that require simple network management. Each model comes in a compact
• 8, 16, or 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports
desktop-sized metal case and features either 8, 16, or 24 Gigabit ports.
• Fanless design for silent operation
D-Link Green/Power Saving Performance
D-Link Green Technology
• Power Saving by Link Status
Compliant with IEEE802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet, these switches consume less energy
• Power Saving by Cable Length
by cutting down on power consumption when port utilization is low. By deploying EEE
• IEEE 802.3az compliant
devices, users can cut operating costs and even cut down on necessary cooling equipment,
helping smal and medium-sized businesses stay within their budgets. The DGS-1100 Series
Advanced Features
also features D-Link Green Technology that helps automatical y save energy. The switches
• IGMP Snooping
automatical y detect the length of the connected cables and can adjust power usage for cables
• Bandwidth Control
shorter than 20 meters. In addition, the switches monitor the link status of every port and will
• Static MAC
drastical y reduce power consumption when a port link is down.
VLAN Features
Easy to deploy
• Voice VLAN
• 802.1Q VLAN for traffic segregation
The DGS-1100 Series EasySmart Switches support an intuitive SmartConsole Utility and a
• Port-based VLAN
web-based management interface. The SmartConsole Utility al ows customers to discover all
switches in the D-Link Smart Switch family within the same L2 network segment. With this
Quality of Service
utility, users do not need to change the IP address of their PC, and this also makes initial setup
• 802.1p
of the Smart Switches quick and easy. Switches within the same L2 network segment that are
• Surveillance VLAN
connected to the user’s PC are displayed on-screen for instant access. This al ows for extensive

switch configuration and basic setup of discovered devices, including password changes and
• Loopback Detection with auto disable
firmware upgrades. The graphic web-based management interface provides a user-friendly
• Cable Diagnostics
interface that enables network administrators to remotely control their network down to the
port level.

DGS-1100 Series EasySmart Switches
Surveil ance VLAN and Bandwidth Control
The DGS-1100 Series supports Surveil ance VLAN for video surveil ance
deployment. Surveil ance VLAN gives video traffic high priority and an
individual VLAN, guaranteeing the quality of surveil ance traffic through
a single DGS-1100 switch, thus sparing businesses the added expenses
required for dedicated hardware and facilities. Bandwidth Control can reserve
bandwidth in a per port base for important functions that require a larger
bandwidth or might have high priority.
Easy Troubleshooting
These EasySmart Switches feature Loopback Detection and Cable Diagnostics
to help network administrators find and solve network problems quickly and
easily. Loopback Detection is used to detect loops created by a specific port
and automatical y shut down the affected port. The Cable Diagnostics feature
is designed for network administrators to quickly examine the quality of the
copper cables, recognize the cable type, and detect cable errors.
Advanced Features
DGS-1100 Series is equipped with advanced security features such as Static
MAC, Storm Control, and IGMP Snooping. Static MAC al ows users to create a
MAC whitelist for specific ports, helping administrators limit network access
to authorized devices only. Storm Control monitors broadcast, multicast, or
unknown unicast traffic and wil start blocking or discarding packets which
could flood the network when the defined threshold is exceeded. IGMP
Snooping is able to reduce the loading of L3 multicast routers and save
bandwidth in network throughput.
