We start with the DIS-300G series, and below that, you'll find information on the DIS-M100G-SW.
We're told "the new Switches and Converter have been designed specifically to support the rising demand for Smart City applications, Industrial Automation and the growing adoption of Industry 4.0 techniques" and that the new DIS-M100G-SW "converts an Ethernet connection into fibre for distances up to 80 kilometres".
D-Link Australia's MD, Graeme Reardon, said: “With the need for ruggedised infrastructure devices to power the next-generation of Smart Cities and Industrial 4.0 applications, D-Link is pleased to support this transition with the introduction of an expanded range of Industrial IoT devices to now include the DIS-300G Series of Industrial Switches.
"For Smart City applications, such as city-wide surveillance, universal outdoor wireless, and two-way communication for autonomous vehicles, this new breed of Industrial Switches feature superior environmental specifications compared to commercial network Switches, to enable this new future to be fully realised.”
"For government, local authorities, transport operators and the construction companies and system integrators that support them, the DIS-300G series of Switches are designed to be simple to install and deliver a long service life with low maintenance requirements.
"This hardened, robust design, combined with high availability network features, enables these switches to reliably perform their vital role in the network infrastructure without the need for costly air conditioning and vibration isolation enclosures.
"For Industrial purposes, particularly automation, the switches feature high EMI/EMC rejection enabling them to survive in high EMI environments such as welding bays and support fast network recovery under 20ms to reduce downtime".
The DIS-300G Managed Switches enable greater and more granular configuration options for Industrial and Smart City applications. This includes remote monitoring of performance, fine-grained configuration of data flows and Quality of Service (QoS) to prioritise vital data.

Now, onto theDIS-M100G-SW Industrial Media Converter
Here, D-Link reminds us that "an ultra-fast connection is critical to success, but copper cabling can only go so far, however, by using the DIS-M100G-SW, you can seamlessly convert an Ethernet connection into fibre.
"Twisted pair cabling can be converted into either single or multi-mode fibre that is not only faster but can reach distances of up to 80 kilometres which allows support for a wide range of new applications and technologies in order to futureproof a network".
The DIS-M100G-SW is "designed to form a vital part of network infrastructure in scenarios such as Smart Cities, smart transportation, smart parking or city-wide surveillance. Smart Cities are designed to be efficient and effective for everyone.
"Whatever size of the city‑wide network backbone you are planning for, you can ensure it runs smoothly and can extend further with the DIS-M100G-SW Media Converter".
D-Link explains that its DIS-M100G-SW "is built to take on challenging environments with its ruggedised IP30-rated housing and temperature tolerances ranging from -40°C up to 70°C. It also features a redundant power supply, allowing for unbroken operation even in the rare event of primary power supply failure. Its fanless design also extends the life of the device, ensuring it can serve you reliably for many years".
D-Link explains that "utilising the DIS-M100G-SW, you can easily connect two LANs in different locations over fibre-optic cabling with distances of up to 80km to form a single contiguous LAN. Then by leveraging the benefits of fibre, the DIS-M100G-SW can extend your connection – again, up to 80km away - with no data deterioration, ensuring smooth video transmission.
"Lastly, small is mighty with the DIS-M100G-SW and its compact size means it can be utilised as and when needed, especially in limited space such as telecommunication cabinets or a distribution box and it is easily mount on a DIN rail or a wall".
DIS-M100G-SW Industrial Media Converter 100/1000 Mbps SFP to 100/1000 Mbps RJ45:
