D-LINK Switches

Switches are networking devices operating at layer 2 or a data link layer of the OSI model. They connect devices in a network and use packet switching to send, receive, or forward data packets or data frames over the network.

A switch has many ports, into which we plugged computers. When a data frame arrives at any port of a network switch, it examines the destination address. It Furthermore performs necessary checks and sends the frame to the corresponding device (s). It supports Unicast and Multi-cast.

Features of D-LINK Switches

  • A switch operates in layer 2, i.e. data link layer of the OSI model.
  • It uses MAC addresses (addresses of medium access control sub-layer) to send data packets to selected destination ports.
  • Furthermore, it uses the packet switching technique to receive and forward data packets from the source to the destination device.
  • It supports Unicast (one-to-one), multi-cast (one-to-many), and broadcast (one-to-all) communications.
  • The transmission mode is a full duplex, i.e., communication in the channel occurs in both directions at the same time.
  • Switches are active devices, equipped with network software and network management capabilities.
  • Switches can perform some error checking before forwarding data to the destined port.
  • The number of ports is higher–24/48.

Types of D-LINK Switches

Unmanaged Switch − These are inexpensive switches commonly used in home networks and small businesses. We usually set up by simply plugging into the network, after which they instantly start operating. The plug-and-play method simply adds more switches.

Managed Switch − These are costly switches that are always used in organizations with large and complex networks. We can customize them to augment the functionalities of a standard switch. The augmented features may be Quality of Service as higher security levels, better precision control, and complete network management. Despite their cost, we prefer them in growing organizations because of their scalability and flexibility. Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) configures managed switches.

LAN Switch − Local Area Network (LAN) switch connects devices in the internal LAN of an organization. These switches are specifically helpful in reducing network congestion or bottlenecks. They allocate capacity in a manner so that there is no overlapping of data packets in a network.

PoE Switch PoE Gigabit Ethernets uses Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches. Their technology combines data and power transmission over the same. PoE switches offer greater flexibility and simplify the cabling connections.

Factors to consider when buying our D-LINK switch.

 User count

It all starts with the number of users you need to connect. Remember, a user isn’t just a person on a computer. Users include other connected devices as well, like printers, VoIP phones, surveillance cameras, firewalls, and wireless access. A higher number of users require more ports and faster transfer speeds.


Remember those access points? Mostly, you’ll be placing your APs in locations that make traditional power outlets hard to reach. Fortunately, many can get their electricity through Power over Ethernet, aka PoE. This means they can stay connected and receive power using only an ethernet cord. Look for a network switch with Ethernet ports that support the PoE needs of your network.


Network switches don’t create speed, but the wrong switch could slow your network down significantly. If you’re transferring a lot of data, you’ll want to make sure you have ports that can handle your need for speed. Look for 10/100/1000, aka Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), ports. These ports will automatically sense and use the fastest speed shared by the sending and receiving devices. For less heavy-duty scenarios, a switch with 10/100 ports may suffice, but most modern switches support GbE ports.

Managed vs Unmanaged

This one’s a pretty straightforward choice. If you’re looking at a switch to connect the key pieces of your organizational network, you’ll want a managed switch. An unmanaged switch is often called “plug-and-play,”. It means there is no ability to configure an unmanaged network switch because it lacks a “brain.” A managed switch gives you the ability to configure, monitor, and manage the devices on your network.

Benefits of buying our D-LINK Switches

  • Increases Capacity. They increment the accessible data transfer capacity of the organization.
  • Reduces Burden. They help in lessening the outstanding burden on individual host PCs.
  • Increment Presentation. They increment the presentation of the organization.
  • Fewer casing effects. Networks that use switches will have fewer casing effects.
  • We can associate straightforward switches with workstations.
  • Increases Bandwidth. It increases the capacity of the network.
  • Fewer frame collisions. Networks that use switches will have fewer frame collisions.
  • More secure. Data will go only to the destination.

D-LINK Access point

A wireless access point (WAP) is a networking device that allows wireless-capable devices to connect to a wired network. It is simpler and easier to install WAPs to connect all the computers or devices in your network.

Common types of D-LINK access point configurations

Root access point

In this configuration, we connect directly an access point to a wired LAN, providing a connection point for wireless users.

Repeater access point

We can configure an access point as a standalone repeater to extend the range of your infrastructure or overcome an obstacle that blocks radio communication.

The repeater forwards traffic by sending data to either another repeater or an access point connected to the wired network. They sent the data through the route that provides the best performance for the client.


We can configure access points as root or non-root bridges to join multiple networks. An access point in this role will establish a wireless link with a non-root bridge. They then passed traffic over the wireless link to the wired network.

Workgroup bridge

Access points that are in workgroup bridge mode can “associate” with other access points as clients. Also, it provides network connections for devices connected to Ethernet ports.

Central unit in an all-wireless network

In an all-wireless network, an access point acts as a standalone root unit. We do not attach it to a wired LAN. Instead, the access point functions as a hub that links all stations together. It serves as the focal point for communications, increasing the communication range of wireless users.


Many factors within your office space will affect the placement and installation of your wireless AP.


Your building’s floor plan is the first step when analyzing the placement of your wireless access point. How much square footage is there? Does it need to span multiple floors? Multiple access points may be usually required to ensure each can provide a steady signal. Each access point has a cell or radius of coverage. While planning the installation of APs, ensure that your entire space has seamless coverage and connectivity.


 High-traffic use of the internet can slow down the speed and efficiency of everyone. Sometimes it is best to install multiple access points, often limiting each to 15–20 users, for optimal signal strength in heavily occupied office spaces.


Walls, doors, windows, and furniture can become obstacles to the wireless signal from an access point. One of your employees may only be a few steps from the installed access point. However, a bookshelf filled with books and software blocking that location can prevent the signal from reaching their work zone. Again, this is where your building layout will come in handy during the placement and installation process.


Some offices may have electronic equipment that interferes with the wireless signal. For example, healthcare facilities house many pieces of medical electrical equipment that can decrease the signal. Sometimes even microwaves will affect the wireless strength. Understanding what may cause possible interference and placing the access point away from these factors is crucial.


Once you decide on the optimal placement of your wireless access point, you’ll want to consider other factors during mounting.

Mounting your wireless AP can present its own set of problems. Professionals, like State Systems, can provide solutions for placing and mounting your device to ensure it is functional and integrated into your property.


While this may seem like a lot of factors to consider while setting up your office’s wireless access point, State Systems is here to help.

Their radius of action makes them the perfect alternative to provide connection in complexes formed by unique buildings close to each other.

Scalability: allows many users to connect simultaneously to the same network without impairing the browsing experience.

Decongest the network in situations of high demand.

There will be no interruptions in the connection when a user, while moving, causes a change in the access point to which we connected him.

Some support Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) technology, which enables the access points to power over the Ethernet cable, thus saving on additional cabling.

They can collect, process, and provide contextual information from the environment, opening the door to the automation of radio resources.

They reinforce network security, as they can include functionalities such as a captive portal and access control lists that only allow access to authorized users.
