48-Port Gigabit Stackable Smart Managed PoE Switch with 4 10GbE SFP+ ports, 370W PoE Budget




The DGS-1510 Series is D-Link’s latest generation of stackable Gigabit switches with 10G port connectivity, suitable for business networks of all sizes. The DGS-1510 Series provides a reliable, scalable, and modular interconnection between core switches and edge switches with rich capabilities and simplified flexibility. Available in 16, 24 and 48 10/100/1000 Mbps port models, these switches also include four optical ports – including two or four 10G SFP+ ports.

Power over Ethernet (DGS-1510-28P, DGS-1510-28XMP and DGS-1510-52XMP only)

All 10/100/1000 Mbps ports on the DGS-1510-28P, DGS-1510-28XMP and DGS-1510-52XMP are PoE-enabled, for powering devices such as IP cameras, VoIP phones and wireless access points. Compliant with IEEE 802.3af and IEEE 802.3at, these models support up to 30W of power output on any particular PoE port. The total PoE power budgets are 193W for the DGS-1510-28P, and 370W for the DGS-1510-28XMP and DGS-1510-52XMP. Additionally, the power budget for the DGS-1510-52XMP can be increased to 740W when utilized with the DPS-700 redundant power supply, allowing the switch to power even more devices.

Time-based PoE enables power to a port to be shut off at a scheduled time, reducing power usage and increasing security by powering off devices that should not be in use during non-business hours. A unique “PD-alive” feature, ideal for surveillance networks, pings attached PDs (IP Cameras, wireless access points) and resets the PoE power when inactivity is detected.

10G SFP+ Stacking/Uplink Ports

The last two SFP+ ports of the DGS-1510 Series switches allow users to create a physical stack of up to 6 units in a fault-tolerant ring or linear topology using Direct Attach Copper (DAC) cables or any compatible SFP+ transceiver1. This creates a total of 288 Gigabit ports, ensuring high bandwidth while staying cost-efficient. Meanwhile, the remaining uplink ports can be used for other functions, such as connecting to a larger network. Network administrators can also easily configure and manage any of the DGS-1510 Series Smart Managed switches in a single stack. With 20 Gbps full-duplex capabilities, the DGS-1510 Series offers 10G connectivity to core networks and servers while still maintaining fast data transfer rates.

Layer 3 Traffic Management

The DGS-1510 Series provides static routing, allowing network segmentation into workgroups that communicate between VLANs and increase application performance. With these capabilities, network administrators can reduce the load on core devices, creating a scalable and efficient network.

Extensive Layer 2 Features

The DGS-1510 Series switches are equipped with a complete lineup of Layer 2 features, including IGMP Snooping, Port Mirroring, Spanning Tree, and Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP). The IEEE 802.3x Flow Control function allows servers to directly connect to the switch for fast, reliable data transfer. Network maintenance features include Loopback Detection and Cable Diagnostics. Loopback Detection automatically detects and shuts down loops created by a specific port or VLAN. The Cable Diagnostics feature, designed primarily for administrators and customer service representatives, can determine cable quality and can quickly discover sections of cabling that need to be replaced.

Traffic Classification and Quality of Service

The DGS-1510 Series supports Auto Surveillance VLAN (ASV) and Auto Voice VLAN, which are best suited for VoIP and video surveillance deployments. Auto Surveillance VLAN is a new, industry-leading technology built into D-Link Smart switches. This technology consolidates data and surveillance video transmissions through a single DGS-1510 Series Smart Managed switch, saving businesses the costs of maintaining expensive dedicated hardware and infrastructure. ASV also ensures the quality of real-time video for monitoring and control without compromising the transmission of conventional network data by giving ASV traffic priority over other packets.

Keep Your Network Secure

D-Link’s innovative Safeguard Engine helps to protect the DGS-1510 Series against traffic flooding caused by malicious attacks. The DGS-1510 Series supports both MAC and web-based access control. This gives network administrators multiple authentication options, reducing deployment times and removing the need for client software. The DGS-1510 Series supports IEEE 802.1X port-based authentication, allowing network users to be authenticated through external RADIUS servers. The Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) Spoofing Prevention feature helps to prevent attacks that may allow an intruder to intercept users’ traffic while the DHCP Server Screening feature screens rogue DHCP server packets from user ports to prevent unauthorized IP assignment.

IPv6 Ready

The DGS-1510 Series is IPv6 ready and supports various IPv6 functions such as MLD Snooping, IPv6 security features, and IPv6 Quality of Service (QoS), ensuring seamless integration with next generation networks. The DGS-1510 Series also supports IPv4/v6 dual stack functionality, which allows the switches to act as a bridge between IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

Versatile Management

The DGS-1510 Series supports a variety of management options. A webbased Graphical User Interface (GUI) enables administrators to easily set up and remotely manage their networks, greatly reducing switch deployment time. Two modes of GUI are supported – Standard Mode and Surveillance Mode. Surveillance Mode detects compatible ONVIF cameras and places them in a surveillance VLAN, allowing a single switch to be used for voice, video, and data, removing the need for dedicated hardware and reducing maintenance costs.

The DGS-1510 Series also comes with the D-Link Network Assistant (DNA) utility that enables administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level. The DNA utility furthermore allows customers to easily discover multiple D-Link Smart Managed Switches within the same L2 network segment and display them onscreen for instant access. This allows for simultaneous configuration and basic setup of all discovered devices, including password changes and firmware upgrades.

The DGS-1510 Series also features an extensive Command Line Interface (CLI) and SNMP support, allowing centralized management of a large number of devices. Out-of-band management of the switches is also available via a designated console port. This provides access to devices in the event that there is a loss of connectivity or that the switch is overloaded with bulk or malicious traffic.

Energy Efficient

All of the DGS-1510 Series switches are capable of conserving power without sacrificing operational performance or functionality thanks to D-Link Green 3.0 technology. Using the IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) standard, the switches will automatically decrease power usage when traffic is low. For environments that do not fully support this standard, these switches offer advanced power-saving settings including port shut-off, LED shut-off, and system hibernation based on custom profiles. These profiles can also be applied to the PoE switches so that there is no unnecessary power consumption during off-hours.

Lifetime Warranty and NBD Replacement

D-Link offers a Lifetime Warranty and Next Business Day (NBD) hardware replacement on the DGS-1510 Series Stackable Gigabit switches to further its commitment to product quality and long-term customer confidence.2

1 When stacking in a linear topology, the remaining unused SFP+ ports in the stacking port pair of the top and bottom switches will also be considered occupied by the switch and cannot be used for any other purpose.
2 Lifetime Warranty available in U.S.A. only. Lifetime Warranty is effective for products purchased on or after Aug 1, 2017. Products purchased prior to Aug 1, 2017 are covered by Limited Lifetime Warranty. Lifetime Warranty void when not purchased from Authorized US D-Link Reseller.
