Stack up to eight switches for high-density Gigabit aggregation
Effortless multi-site deployment
Four 2.5 GB Base-T ports for Wi-Fi 6 APs (PoE models)
10 GB Base-T and/or SFP+ (fiber) ports for stacking or uplink
Up to 188 Gbps switching capacity per switch
Up to 370 W PoE output per switch
Connect with DPS-520 for power redundancy (non-PoE models)
Supports dynamic routing and selective Q-in-Q tagging
The DGS-1520 Series brings reliable, yet affordable, Gigabit connectivity with four 10-Gigabit ports (two 10G Base-T and two 10G SFP+) for high-speed uplink or stacking. Boost your network performance, simplify your network infrastructure, improve bandwidth and reduce cabling complexity.
Zero Touch Provisioning
Zero Touch provisioning is perfect for multi-site network expansions. Simply preconfigure your network settings in a centralized location, then install the DGS-1520 switches for effortless deployments.
Multi-Gigabit ports on the DGS-1520 Series switch (PoE models only) support 100 MB / 1 GB / 2.5 GB speeds to maximize various device capabilities, such as Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) access points, which can often exceed single Gigabit speeds.
* For DGS-1520-28MP & DGS-1520-52MP only
Powerful Stacking Capability
Stack up to eight DGS-1520 switches with a total of 80 GB stacking bandwidth using hybrid mode (copper and/or fiber), increasing flexibility, scalability, and cost effectiveness for SMBs.
Minimize Outages with Power Redundancy *non-PoE models only
For a more resilient network infrastructure, connect up to four DGS-1520 switches (non-PoE models only) with the DPS-520 PoE redundant power supply system through the management port and actively back-up four devices to significantly reduce power redundancy costs.
- Auto Discovery: Automatically detect power requirements of connected PD devices.
- RPS Port Priority: Enables administrators to define RPS failover policy.
- Status Reporting: Administrators can connect via web browser to remotely monitor DPS-520 status.
Low Network Latency,
High PoE Budget
High Gigabit-port density with up to 188 GB total switching capacity, and up to 30 W per port with 370 W total PoE budget to power your PoE-enabled devices.
Enhanced Manageability for Peace of Mind
For more complex network infrastructures, D-View 7, a centralized management platform, can be installed for in-depth network management and maintenance to optimize network availability, reliability, security, and resilience.
