D-Link’s xStack™ Series is a set of “Next Generation” high performance stackable switches that deliver high scalability, wire-speed Gigabit performance, high availability, integrated 10-Gigabit stacking, redundant power option, and support for stacking in a “ring” or “star” topology (requires DGS-3324SRi ). xStack™ Switches can stack up to 12 units in a stack1, providing up to 384 Gigabit ports, and up to 40Gbps of shared stacking bandwidth in a ring topology or 20Gbps of dedicated stacking bandwidth in a “star” topology. The xStack™ DXS-3326GSR is designed to meet the most demanding high port density fiber requirements. Each unit provides 24 Gigabit fiber slots with (4) 10/100/1000 Combo ports, and switching capacity of 128Gbps. It stacks with the other xStack™ Switches including the DGS-3324SR, DGS-3324SRi, and DXS-3350SR to provide unprecedented flexibility in a switch stack environment.
The xStack™ DXS-3326GSR stacked in a ring topology supports “Shortest-Path, Fail-Safe” switching which improves resiliency, uptime, and network efficiency. It also supports an optional Redundant Power Supply (DPS-500) and includes support for 802.3ad Link Aggregation, 802.1d Spanning Tree, 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree, and 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree for increased network reliability and availability.
An extensive set of network management features is provided including console CLI, Telnet, Web, SNMPv1/v2/v3, RMON, TFTP, Port Mirroring, BootP, and DHCP. The switch can also be easily managed using D-Link’s SIM (Single IP Management) Clustering technology. It also supports a variety of advanced traffic management options including 802.1x, Bandwidth Control, Broadcast Rate Limiting, and support for IGMP Snooping v1/v2/v3.
Advanced Enterprise Features
A robust and consistent set of QoS/CoS, VLAN, and security features is provided. They include 8 priority queues for 802.1p/ToS/DiffServ, with classification and marking based on MAC SA/DA, IP SA/DA, and/or TCP/UDP port numbers. Layer 3 dynamic routing protocols include RIPv1/v2, OSPFv2, PIM-DM/SM, DVMRP, and VRRP. Security features include 802.1x (Port-based Authentication), 802.1x (MAC-based Authentication), and Access Control Lists (ACL) based on MAC address, IP address, and/or TCP/UDP port numbers. It also provides extensive support for GARP/GVRP, 802.1q, 802.1v IPv6 VLAN, and port-based VLANs for up to 255 static groups per device.
The xStack™ DXS-3326GSR is the latest example of D-Link’s continued commitment to our channel partners and customers to be the industry leader in delivering cost-effective, reliable, high performance, feature-rich switch solutions.
