The DGS-1250 range comprises:

DGS-1250-28X – four 10GE SFP+ ports, 24 GbE ports ($599.95)
DGS-1250-28XMP – four 10GE SFP+ ports, 24 PoE GbE Ports with 370W power budget ($1599.95)
DGS-1250-52X – four 10GE SFP+ ports, 48 GbE ports ($1099.95)
DGS-1250-52XMP – four 10GE SFP+ ports, 48 PoE GbE ports with 370W power budget ($1999.95)

The support for IEEE 802.3af/at with a 370W power budget allow the DGS-1250-28XMP and DGS-1250-52XMP switches to power more devices.

Other features include IGMP snooping, port mirroring, Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), static routing, automatic prioritisation of voice and video traffic, ACL support, IP-MAC port binding, 802.1x port-based authentication, and D-Link's Safeguard Engine to help protect against malicious flooding

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
