The DGS-1100-05PD is a unique 5-port switch powered through the network cable by an upstream PoE power source (PoE switch or injector). As a “PoE extender”, it also has the ability to propagate (pass-through) PoE power further downstream to one or two Powered Devices (PDs).
Powered by PoE
The DGS-1100-05PD is powered by a PoE switch or PoE injector that can be located up to 100m away. As such, this device is intended for applications where a small 5-port Gigabit switch is required but AC power is not close by. The upstream PoE source may support either 802.3af or 802.3at. One switch port is used for the power input (port 5) and the other four ports are available as standard 10/100/1000 ports for networked devices, such as PCs, printers, etc.
The DGS-1100-05PD switch can also “pass-through” PoE power to one or two downstream PDs (such as IP Cameras, IP Phones, Wireless APs). The PoE budget for this feature is dependent on the PoE source (802.3af or 802.3at) and the PD’s PoE Classification.
PoE pass-through capability makes the DGS-1100-05PD ideal for IP Surveillance networks when cameras are located beyond 100m from the main PoE switch. As an additional benefit, because the switch is smart-managed, an administrator can control various PoE functions through the user interface, such as remotely rebooting cameras or access points, from anywhere on the network.
The following table illustrates the switch’s capabilities when using PoE pass-through:
Built to Last
The DGS-1100-05PD comes in a compact metal enclosure. It can be wall mounted or placed on a desktop. It has no fans so it operates silently. Compliant with IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), it consumes less energy by cutting down on power consumption when port utilization is low.
Easy to Deploy
The DGS-1100-05PD supports an intuitive client-based utility (D-Link Network Assistant Utility) and a web-based management interface. The client-based utility discovers all D-Link Smart Switches within the same Layer 2 network segment, making initial setup quick and easy. This allows extensive switch configuration and basic administration of discovered devices, including password changes and firmware upgrades. The web-based management interface provides a user-friendly way for network administrators to manage the switch down to the port level. The interface can be accessed from a web browser, allowing the switch to be controlled from any network-connected PC.
Surveillance VLAN and Bandwidth Control
The DGS-1100-05PD supports Surveillance VLAN for IP surveillance deployments. This gives video traffic a dedicated VLAN and higher priority through the switch, separating surveillance traffic from the rest of the network. This also ensures security, and guarantees the quality of the video traffic, sparing businesses the added cost of dedicated surveillance networking hardware. Bandwidth Control can reserve bandwidth on a per port basis for important functions that require larger bandwidth or might have high priority.
The DGS-1100-05PD is equipped with advanced security features such as Static MAC, Storm Control, and IGMP Snooping. Static MAC allows users to create a MAC white list for specific ports, helping administrators limit network access to authorized devices only. Storm Control monitors broadcast, multicast, or unknown unicast traffic and will start blocking or discarding packets which could flood the network when the defined threshold is exceeded. IGMP Snooping is able to reduce the loading of L3 multicast routers and save bandwidth in network throughput.
The DGS-1100-05PD features Loopback Detection and Cable Diagnostics to help network administrators find and solve network problems quickly and easily. Loopback Detection is used to detect loops created by a specific port and automatically shuts down the affected port. Cable Diagnostics helps network administrators quickly examine the quality of the copper cables, recognize the cable type, and detect cable errors.
