D-Link Unveils Stackable IPv6 Switch with 10G Uplink

D-Link announced two new additions to its xStack 3600 switch family -- the 24-port DGS-3627 and the 48-port DGS-3650. Both are stackable feature-rich Layer 3 Gigabit switches that offer support for IPv6 routing, and 10-Gigabit copper or fiber connections.

The D-Link xStack DGS-3627 is a 24-port gigabit managed switch with 3 optional 10-Gigabit ports. The D-Link DGS-3650 is a 48-port gigabit managed switch with 2 optional 10Gb ports. The 3600 series supports optional physical stacking up to 12 units or optional 10-Gigabit fiber or 10-Gigabit copper uplinking to additional networked devices.

In addition, the D-Link xStack DGS-3627 and 3650 offer a variety of authentication methods. They support MAC based Access Control (MAC) as well as Web-based Access Control (WAC), which prompts for username and password before allowing network access.

The xStack 3627 and 3650 also incorporate support for Microsoft's Network Access Protection (NAP) protocol.

Commercial availability is expected in October.
