The D-Link xStackĀ® DES-3828P Switch is a fully managed Layer 3 PoE switch that provides advanced enterprise-class features to meet the needs of the most demanding enterprise connectivity applications.

For the SMB requiring a cost effective core switching solution, as well as for larger Enterprise and Metropolitan Service Provider (MSP) environments needing a managed, feature rich switch capable of uplinking to backbone switches, the D-Link xStack DES-3828P is designed to meet the needs of the most demanding departmental and enterprise connectivity applications. The xStack DES-3828P Switch is a fully managed Layer 3 switch that provides 24 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet ports each capable of up to 15.4 Watts of IEEE 802.3af PoE and two combo SFP/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet ports. In addition, two fixed 1000BASE-T ports in the back-panel can provide a dedicated trunk connection between devices or core switches. The xStack DES-3828P also provides virtual stacking functionality via D-Link Simple IP Management (SIM) technology allowing up to 32 units to be managed via a single IP address. With support for Q-in-Q Double VLAN tagging, IPv6 aware*, Dynamic Layer 3 Routing, IEEE 802.1s, and bandwidth control, the xStack DES-3828P incorporates advanced features suitable for the MSP as well as the SMB and enterprise size networks.

Metro Switching

Service provider networks are moving from circuit-based access to newer packet-based access that requires highly reliable intelligent switching, and demands resiliency and dependability. The xStack DES-3828P meets this demand by supporting industry standards for 802.1s (Multiple Spanning Tree), 802.3ad link aggregation for up to 32 groups, bandwidth rate limiting down to 64k, and support for an external redundant power option for added peace of mind. In addition, the xStack DES-3828P offers Double VLAN Q-in-Q tagging, which adds on an additional tag to a VLAN tag, expanding the VLAN space and allowing service providers to deploy their service quickly and securely. The xStack DES-3828P also incorporates advanced QoS support such as the ability to filter and forward traffic based on Layer 2/3/4, making it an ideal choice for VoIP, video, and audio services targeting business class customers.


Network Security

The xStack DES-3828P is equipped to handle many of today's emerging security vulnerabilities. Up to 800 independent access control lists can be configured with the ability to filter and block traffic based on criteria such as: Port, MAC, 802.1p priority, VLAN, DSCP, IP address, Protocol type, and TCP/UDP port number and content, proving that the xStack DES-3828P provides unparalleled security. In addition the xStack DES-3828P incorporates 802.1x Port-based and MAC-based RADIUS authentication for secure network logins and SSH/SSL for increased management security. Further, the xStack DES-3828P incorporates MAC-IP Port Binding and the D-Link Safeguard Engine to protect the CPU from broadcast, multicast, and unicast flooding.


Advanced L3 Routing

The xStack DES-3828P is a high performance Layer 3 switch that provides an ideal solution by offering advanced Layer 3 routing features such as RIP, OSPF, VRRP, up to 10 IP addresses per VLAN, and floating static routes. Multi-Path Routing*, which is the method of establishing multiple paths between given source-destination nodes within a network, is also supported on the xStack DES-3828P. These added routing features provide redundancy, improve network utilization, and provide load balancing for the network.


IEEE 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet

The D-Link DES-3828P supports 24 ports of 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet and supplies up to 15.4 watts per port. The need for Power-over-Ethernet enabled switching devices is growing with the proliferation of PoE capable access points, IP phones, and security cameras. The difficulty and cost often associated with running new AC power outlets to difficult to reach locations has made PoE an indispensible technology for SMBs, schools, and enterprise class networks.
