DM1200E Family
Stackable LAN Switches

The DATACOM DM1200E switching line offers Gigabit Ethernet wire speed solution to meet the increasing demand in enterprise network applications due to its 10Gbps uplink. It has full L2 functionalities and static routing. Formed by different fixed configuration models for 19" rack installation, it allows the deployment of low cost networks with high traffic capacity.

Characteristics

Wire Speed Forwarding

The DM1200E family provides an internal switching capacity of 136Gbit/s with all L2 packet switching and L3 static routing implemented at hardware level at wire speed, ensuring low latency data switching and without traffic blocking. Packet filtering features are also performed in hardware, not affecting the CPU performance or packet forwarding.

 

Management

The DM1200E family provides complete management using IPv4 or IPv6. The products have a CLI (Command Line Interface) with automatic assistance in the syntax of commands and parameters which is accessible via SSH, Telnet and RS-232 Console. The equipment access is also available via internal Web Server with SSL and TLS, and provide an SNMP agent. In order to ease the firmware version management and the configuration management, it is possible to store simultaneously 2 different firmware and 2 different configuration versions on the equipment memory, choosing which one of will be used when starting up the unit.

 

Security

To guarantee the network security, DM1200E family allows a reliable management structure through user authentication and accounting via RADIUS and TACACS+. It also supports alarm notifications via e-mail, an unique clock via SNTP, protection against Denial of Service (DoS/DDoS), and port and MAC Address authentication using  IEEE802.1x. DM1200 switches also offer mechanisms of protection against broadcast, multicast and Destination Lookup Failure (DLF).

 

Switching

The DM1200E switches support advanced functionalities such as simultaneous configuration of up to 1024 VLANs, Link Aggregation, Spanning Tree (STP, RSTP and MSTP) protocol for redundancy and network protection as well as IGMP Snooping for multicast applications.

Static routing is also available, allowing the usage of the switch as a switch router, besides the facility of creation of filters (ACLs) implemented at hardware level, enabling the configuration of actions such as discarding packets or QoS priority remarking, among others.

To optimize the network, the DM1200E switches support up to 8 QoS queues per port, classifying the traffic by IEEE802.1p and DSCP, in addition to multiples matches using ACLs, enabling the bandwidth limitation and traffic balance per queues.

 

Stacking
In order to increase capacity, DM1200E switches are capable of operating in stacking topology with up to 4 units. The stacking can be seen by the management interface as a single entity and it is managed by a unique IP address.

 

Power Over Ethernet

DM1200E 24GP+4GX and DM1200E 24GP+4XS models are in compliance with the standard IEEE 802.3at, and provide 24 PoE+, limited to a instantaneous power consumption of up to 380W. It allows the data and power transmission through the same Cat.5e or Cat.6 cable. This application is recommended to perform the connection and power supply of Access Points, IP phones and IP cameras.

 

Auxiliary Power Supply (RPU)

The DM1200E Series supports the auxiliary power supply (RPU) through the usage of the accessory DM1000E RPU 450. The RPU provides redundancy to the power supply for critical applications, keeping the device operational in case of failure of the internal power supply or abcense of energy to the switch. The RPU may also provide additional power to the device, enabling all ports in PoE+ mode works with maximum supported power ¹.

Routing

Functionalities of static routing IPv4 and IPv6 are available, allowing the usage of the switch as a router switch, besides the facility of creation of filters (ACLs), which works in hardware, enabling the configuration of many actions, such as, discarding of packets, QoS priority remarking, among others.

64 IPv4 routes and 32 IPv6 routes are supported in the routing table in a simultaneous working for usage in network migration applications from IPv4 to IPv6 in Dual Stack format.
