Product Information

D-Link 20 10/100/1000 Base-T port Unified Switch with 4 Combo 1000Base-T PoE/SFP ports

The DWS-3160 is D-Link's latest Unified L2+ Gigabit Wired/Wireless Switch. Designed to be the ideal mobility solution for medium-sized and large enterprises and service providers, the DWS-3160 empowers administrators to exercise total control over their wireless networks by centralizing all aspects of provisioning and management. Able to manage up to 48 D-Link Unified Access Points by itself and up to 192 in a switch cluster, the DWS-3160 can be configured to act either as a Wireless Controller in the core network, or as an L2+ Gigabit Switch at the edge, enabling it to be seamlessly integrated into any existing network infrastructure. The DWS-3160 is able to centralize all critical WLAN management, thereby eliminating the need to manage Access Points (AP) individually. The administrator simply assigns a profile to an individual D-Link Unified AP, and the configuration corresponding to that profile would be applied onto that AP automatically. In addition, the DWS-3160 can apply new firmware to all D-Link Unified Access Points on the network, thus greatly simplifying the upgrade process. Besides its wireless capabilities, the DWS-3160 also excels as an advanced L2+ switch. Complete with RIPv1/v2 dynamic routing, ACL security, multilayer QoS, comprehensive VLAN support, as well as Multicast Snooping capabilities, the DWS-3160 enables easy and flexible deployment. Furthermore, multiple DWS-3160s can form a Switch Cluster, which enables the administrator to configure all switches from one single Cluster Master. As the size of the cluster grows, so can the number of D-Link Unified Access Points being managed. Up to 192 D-Link Unified Access Points may be managed by the Switch Cluster. This helps to significantly simplify management and reduce maintenance efforts when a network is scaled up. The DWS-3160 offers a state-of-the-art Wireless Intrusion Detection System (WIDS), which empowers administrators to detect Rogue Access Points and Rogue Clients, effectively preventing them from causing damage to the network. The administrator can also activate various threat detections and use Radio Frequency Scan to sweep the entire wireless network to identify any possible security breach in advance. When working in conjunction with D-Link Unified Access Points, Virtual APs may be easily configured and managed, allowing the administrator to assign different access privileges to different classes of users. In addition to WPA and WPA2, an added measure of protection is added with an advanced Captive Portal, thus enabling only authorized users to utilize the wireless network. On the wired side, the DWS-3160 utilizes ACL (Access Control Lists) to tightly control what goes in and out of the network by setting up a number of simple rules. Along with other advanced security features, such as 802.1x Network Access Control and advanced Denial-of-Service Protection, the DWS-3160 provides robust and centralized security, ensuring maximum network reliability. When a number of access points are deployed close to each other, interference may result if proper RF management is not implemented. The DWS-3160 is aware of how the radio spectrum is being utilized in the network and will automatically assign the most optimized channel to each Access Point under its management. This greatly reduces RF interference and will allow the administrator to deploy APs more densely. To further minimize interference, when a number of access points are operating on the same channel within close proximity of each other, the DWS-3160 will reduce the transmission power of these Access Points. When, for whatever reason, there is no longer so many Access Points present, transmission power will be increased to expand network coverage. To ensure that no Access Point is overburdened while others sit idle, the DWS-3160 will prevent certain D-Link Unified Access Points from accepting new association requests if its resources are fully utilized.
