Network firm D-Link has announced the addition of two new switches to its portfolio, aimed at small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) looking to meet the requirements to be able to handle growing traffic volumes on their networks.
The first product, the DGS-3120 xStack (pictured above) is a an update on the firm's 3100 switch and features a number of new features including two 10GB stacking ports per switch, and has physical stacking capabilities and the ability to be upgraded to IPv6 network too, for a licence fee.
The DGS-3120 is available now through the company's reseller partners, priced for around £576 including VAT.
Matt Parkinson, the firm's business solutions manager, told V3 that the products would suit SMBs by ensuring they can meet the ever-growing data demands on their networks.
"The product gives us the flexibility to target a number of markets, including small enterprises and those in the education sector that are looking to ensure 10GB connections at either the edge of the network or at the core," he said.
The second new product is the DGS-3420 xStack (pictured below), which has four 10-Gigabit uplink ports with Small Form-factor Pluggable Plus (SFP+) technology as standard and, can be stacked with up to 12 units and has IPv6 support as standard.
"By including the SFP+ technology as part of the switches as standard firms can save some £200 to £300 rather than having to add as an additional element," Parkinson added.
The device is also available now and will retail from £1,700 to as much as £4,700 depending on configuration that firms choose.
