D-Link has added next generation switches to its 10-Gigabit Ethernet range. The new switches are designed to help meet the requirements of the modern network environment, across multiple areas. These include top-of-rack deployments within small and medium data centres, enterprise and campus aggregation network environments and storage attached network interfaces.

"This series of next-generation Layer 3 Gigabit switches is the final piece of the puzzle that allows us to deliver performance, flexibility, security, multi-layer quality of service and access across the entire network," said Harrison Albert, regional director at D-Link Middle East & Africa. "The DXS-3600 family is designed to slot perfectly into a range of scenarios, whether that be as departmental access layer devices or core switches to form a multi-level network structure with high-speed backbone and centralised servers. This range delivers all the core functionality a customer would expect, and then we will exceed those expectations with a host of new software and hardware-based features in the months to come."

The new DXS-3600 10GbE L2/L3 Switch family features wired-speed 10-Gigabit Ethernet switching, routing and low latency, in a compact 1U modular design that ensures flexibility, scalability and reliability. The switches have 24 fixed 10 GbE SFP+ ports, with an expansion module for adding extra ports or other connectivity options including stacking, optical interfaces or 10G Base-T connections, depending on application.

Redundant and hot swappable power supplies and fan trays, guarantee high availability, while a range of energy efficiency features such as selectable air-flow, port sensing and smart fan control are designed to ensure power draw is kept to a minimum.
