Chassis Switches

D-Link Chassis Switches are intelligent and high-performance multi-layer LAN devices designed for Enterprise Campus and Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN). They are ideal for deployment in environments where minimal or zero downtime of network applications, and superior performance, security, and control are required.

 

Why You Want It

Application Convergence

The switches feature high-speed hardware with software functions like prioritized traffic Quality of Service (QoS) and Multicast Routing to deliver performance suitable for real-time applications such as VoIP, IPTV/Multi-Terminal HD Video Monitoring and HD Video Conferencing.

MPLS Functions

A number of advanced Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) functions are supported, including MPLS Label Management, LDP, and MPLS L2/L3 VPN, enabling Enterprises and Service Providers to build intelligent next-gen networks that deliver advanced Value-Added Services (VAS) over a single infrastructure.

Virtual Switch System (VSS)

The DES-8500E Series supports Virtual Switch System (VSS), a technology that can virtualize multiple physical devices into a logical device, to obtain much better performance, reliability, flexibility and management than with multiple independent physical devices. The VSS line card can extend the VSS distance to 80km, far beyond the limits of traditional clusters.

Innovative Green Design

Green Technology limits the maximum power consumption to 1000W. A unique power supply monitoring mechanism is in place. The intelligent fan management system supports automatic speed regulation, independent partition control, reduced rotation speed, and noise lowering, while Energy-Efficient Ethernet and IEEE802.3az compliance reduces energy consumption.
