D-Link Ethernet switches are quite classy and easy to use. These switches can be utilized for both small and large networks, irrespective of complexity. No matter, how secure you want your network to be, D-Link managed switches are quite capable of fulfilling your requirement. These switches can be managed both through the web and through CLI as well. D-Link has switches in a variety of speed ranges. There are 10/100 mbps switches for simple and small networks. For larger and secure networks D-Link provides Gigabit switches with an OFC combo port. These switches vary from 8 ports to 48 ports. Programming of these switches through CLI is not so complicated. Simple and comprehensive commands will do what is needed. Switches are robust and from time to time, firmware upgrades are also available on the net.
Room for Improvement:
It will be very difficult to find any flaw in D-Link Ethernet Switches. Though few, L2 switches are bit costly to afford. The only significant issue which could trouble you while programming these switches is, its binding of ports along IP and MAC. There is no direct CLI command available for these. You have to use 802.1x radius protocol and disable the address learning capability of the ports. Although, this is not a very serious issue. Many of the network savvy people can handle this.
D-Link Ethernet Switches are state of the art networking devices that can solve critical networking related issues like VLAN segregation, enhancing security through ACL, configuring trunk ports, RIP, etc. D-Link L2 switches have easy to upload upgraded firmware through web interface.
