D-Link Debuts New Line of Multi-Gigabit Smart Managed Ethernet Switches – Supports The New IEEE 802.3bz 2.5GBASE-T Standard

D-Link has announced the DMS-1100 Series 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Switches, a new family of Multi-Gigabit switches. Featuring eight multi-speed 2.5 Gigabit access ports and two 10 Gigabit SFP+ uplink ports, the DMS-1100 Series switches are ideal for deploying multiple high-performance 802.11ac Wave 2 access points using 2.5 Gigabit connections, while providing 10 Gigabit wire-speed uplinks for accessing the larger local area network (LAN).

Compliant with the new IEEE 802.3bz 2.5GBASE-T standard, the DMS-1100 Series switches provide 2.5 Gbps connections over conventional CAT-5e LAN cabling up to 100 meters. This allows  SMB/SME to upgrade their network speeds without having to replace existing cabling.   This also lowers the total cost of ownership (TCO) of upgrading 802.11ac Wave 2 APs and 2.5 Gigabit . Each of the eight switch access ports automatically detect the speed needed by the attached device and set the rates accordingly. Each port of the DMS-1100 supports 2.5 Gbps, 1000 Mbps and 100 Mbps.

“The DMS-1100 Series switches are ideal for the network edge – providing power and connectivity to 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless access points with high speed 2.5 Gbps Ethernet interfaces,” said Steven Olen, director of product marketing, D-Link Systems. “These new switches can also be used in business networks running bandwidth intensive applications, where 1 Gbps to the desktop is no longer sufficient.”

The PoE model – DMS-1100-10TP – provides 30W of Power over Ethernet (PoE) across all eight access ports per IEEE 802.3at standards. With an overall PoE budget of 240W, the switch has ample power to support 30W of power across all eight ports simultaneously.
