Moving to the upper layer after the premises network is the access network. D-Link offers layer-2/3 Ethernet switches as a reliable termination point for each of the services delivered by the service provider for an access network. D-Link solutions for access networks include features, such as
- Network segmentation – VLAN
Network segmentation allows the service provider to group customers into different network segments based on their service level for easier network management and service delivery.
- User Authentication and Network Security
At the access network, D-Link provides user authentication and network security features to eliminate unauthorized users and malicious traffic before it reaches the core network. These features include 802.1X authentication, Web-based Access Control, RADIUS and TACACS support, Safeguard Engine, ACL, IGMP Authentication and many more.
