The DES-3018 series switches are high-performance
managed Layer 2 switches that provide an ideal
solution for workgroups and departments. These
switches present a great entry-level managed solution
for the SMB just starting out or the already
established business looking to bring a managed
solution to the desktops. These switches provide fiber
uplinks for connection of small groups of users over a
larger distance such as on a campus and between indoor
departments or school classrooms.
High-Performance L2 Switching. With powerful switch
fabric and abundant processing memory, the DES-3018
series provides wire-speed high performance for
departments and workgroups. These switches include
support for traffic segmentation that isolates ports
to protect privacy. They allow you to migrate end users
to an 802.1x environment when existing workstations
support the 802.1x authentication protocol.
Investment Protection. By supporting industry
approved specifications,the DES-3018 series leverages
your existing investment in a multi-vendor environment,
while maximizing compatibility of business with
critical features like Spanning Tree (802.1D and
802.1w), QoS (802.1p), port mirroring and network
management. These switches provide robust support for
standard-based management protocols such SNMP,
RMON, BOOTP, Telnet, web and port mirroring,
enabling you to integrate them into many third-party
network management packages.
Advanced Enterprise Features. The DES-3018 series
switches bring advanced enterprise functions to a more
affordable level while supporting advanced features:
802.1p and portbased QoS/CoS, rich security and
management features such as port-based/MAC-based
802.1x authentication and bandwidth control.These
switches also support many of the features you would
expect to see on a larger managed solution such as:
IGMP snooping, 802.3ad Link Aggregation, 255 VLANs,
traffic segmentation, traffic monitoring and SYSLOG.
Cost-Effective Virtual Stack. With D-Link Single IP
Management client support, the DES-3018series can be
attached to a higher-level core switch such as a
DES-6500 chassis or a D-Link xStack to form a virtual
stack. The DES-3018 series can form a workgroup or
departmental stack providing 10/100Mbps speed with
Gigabit uplinks to the core switch. The DES-3018 series
simplifies and speeds up your management tasks,as
multiple switches can be configured, monitored and
maintained from a management station through one unique
