D-Link has launched two next-generation Layer2+ Gigabit switches that offer performance, flexibility, security and multi-layer quality of service (QoS). 

The xStack DGS-3400 series offers high Gigabit port densities for desktop connections, SDP fibre connectivity, 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplink options and enhances Layer2+ functions.
The switches comprise the workgroup access-layer stack for seamless integration with L3 core switches to form part of a multi-level network structured with high-speed backbone and centralised servers.
“Our xStack business switch range encompasses switches for all business needs and we are constantly evolving and developing the portfolio to deliver solutions for needs that customers highlight to us, says Tobie van Schalkwyk, country manager at D-Link SA.
“The featured Layer2+ family gives SMB and workgroups a cost-effective high performance solution that integrates many Layer3 features and functionalities whilst offering the flexibility smaller businesses require within their network, thereby recognising the different requirements each business has.”
The DGS-3400 family features models with both 24 and 48 Gigabit ports, offering advanced core features including four Combo SFP Fibre Gigabit ports; up to three open slots for optional 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplinks; and virtual stacking of up to 32 units or physical high speed stacking.
The switches also feature advanced security such as TACACS+ and MAC-IP binding; extensive VLAN support including GARP/GVRP; and traffic segmentation and bandwidth control down to 64kbps granularity.
The DGS-3400 models support Zone Defense, D-Link’s network security feature, and come standard with business-class service and support.
