D-Link NZ has launched its next generation Layer 2+/Layer 3 Managed Gigabit switches – the DGS-3630 series. Loaded with advanced software features and a lifetime warranty, the new DGS-3630 switches deliver high performance, flexibility, and fault tolerance for maximum return on investment. With 10/100/1000 RJ45 ports, Gigabit SFP ports, 10 GbE SFP+ ports, advanced security features, and advanced Quality of Service (QoS), the DGS-3630 switches can operate in the core, distribution or access layer of the network. High port densities, switch stacking and easy management make the DGS-3630 switches suitable for a variety of applications in business networks of all sizes.
There are currently three models available in the DGS-3630 series including the DGS-3630-28TC (28-Port Gigabit xStack Layer 3+ Managed Stackable Switch with 24 1000Base-T (4 Combo SFP) and 4 10 GbE SFP+ Ports), the DGS-3630-28SC (28-Port Gigabit xStack Layer 3+ Managed Stackable Switch with 24 SFP (4 Combo 1000Base-T) and 4 10 GbE SFP+ Ports) and the DGS-3630-52TC (52-Port Gigabit xStack Layer 3+ Managed Stackable Switch with 48 1000Base-T and 4 10 GbE SFP+ Ports).
In the recent independent third-party Tolly Group comparison reports the D-Link DGS-3630-28TC Layer 3 Stackable Managed Gigabit Switch outperformed comparable competitor product from Cisco, showing lower L2 and L3 latency across all packet sizes tested. Along with equivalent throughput from the competitor, the D-Link switch also excelled in long-term benefits for total cost of ownership with cost-per-gigabit up to 56 percent lower than Cisco, and up to 38 percent lower power consumption.
