D-Link Expands F-Series Long-Range PoE Switches with Full Gigabit Lineup

Announcement posted by D-Link
02 Dec. 2021

Ideal for surveillance system integrators and businesses deploying Wi-Fi and VoIP solutions


D-Link has expanded its selection of long-range (250m) Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches, with the addition of a full Gigabit range (DGS F-Series) to complement existing 10 / 100Mbps products (DES F- Series) on offer, which have proven to be very popular in the local market since their initial launch in early 2021.

Designed as part of D-Link’s entry-level unmanaged PoE switching solutions, the DGS F-Series offers Gigabit (1000 Mbps) on all ports, while the DES series offers 100 Mbps per port, as well as as Gigabit uplinks. All models have enhanced features that are not normally associated with an unmanaged switch, including long range PoE, VLAN, QoS, and Auto PoE Reset functionality.

Ideal switches for surveillance system integrators and businesses deploying camera and surveillance solutions, these D-Link F Series switches meet the demands of this market.

With many companies using IP cameras with ever increasing resolution requirements for better image quality, there is a strong need for PoE switches to have higher throughput than the 10/100 Mbps ports provided by the range. DES F-Series, and D-Link has now responded to this market need with the launch of the full Gigabit DGS F-Series line this month.

The switches’ 250-meter PoE capability also meets the needs of surveillance system integrators dealing with deployments where a camera or Wi-Fi access point needs to be installed in a remote location where the standard cable length of 100 meters is. a limitation. Using the long range PoE function of these smart switches effectively solves this problem.

The F-series switches are also designed for installations where the IP cameras are connected to the same network as other devices and require greater security than that provided by a standard unmanaged switch. Additionally, when mixing video traffic with other traffic, users often want to prioritize video streams to avoid video stuttering and dropped frames. To overcome this, D-Link F-series switches offer a simple VLAN solution whereby users can easily isolate ports from each other, without the need for additional configuration, as well as automatic QoS to prioritize video traffic and vocal.

Another cool feature of the F DES and DGS series is the ability to reset connected PoE devices using the automatic PoE, or AI PoE reset function. If a device for some reason stops responding, the Switch will automatically detect this and momentarily reset the electrical current supplied to the device, causing the device to restart, hopefully bringing it back online to good condition. Operating.

In short, DES F-Series switches and DGS F-Series Gigabit switches offer an affordable solution,
High performance PoE solution with enhanced functionality over a standard unmanaged switch. The F-Series range also offers better throughput than many comparable switches as well as valuable features including long range PoE, VLAN, QoS and support for automatic PoE reset.

Smart features of the DGS F-Series and DES F-Series switches
Isolates ports from each other. Adds security and improves network performance by limiting broadcast traffic. With the push of a button, you can isolate Switch ports from each other, while still allowing devices to communicate through the uplink ports. This feature not only adds security, but can also effectively suppress network storms and improve network performance.

Extended range
Enables long-range PoE + support and the ability to provide 802.3af / at PoE and data connectivity over cables up to 250 meters in length (Category 5 or better cabling is recommended).

The AI ​​PoE feature automatically reboots a remote device by disabling and re-enabling PoE on the port, if it detects that the remote device has locked up and there is no inbound traffic.

Allows prioritization of applications. The performance of the new switches is enhanced by a QoS (Quality of Service) feature to ensure that critical network services such as IP surveillance, VoIP and IPTV are always given high priority. This feature makes the Switch a perfect solution for IP camera and VoIP applications.
