D-Link Managed Switches Outperform Competitors in New Tolly Group Reports

Independent Testing Confirms D-Link Managed Switches Outperform Competitors in Throughput, Latency, Cost-per-Gigabit, and Power Consumption

SYDNEY, 4 July 2017 – Positive results of independent third-party Tolly Group comparison reports on two managed D-Link® switches against Cisco, HP and Netgear have shown the D-Link DGS-1510-28X Layer 3 Stackable Managed Gigabit Switch and DGS-3630-28TC Layer 3 Stackable Managed Gigabit Switch outperforming comparable competitor products.

D-Link switches outperformed competitors in latency, with the DGS-3630-28TC showing lower L2 and L3 latency across all packet sizes tested. Along with equivalent throughput from major competitors, the D-Link switches excelled in long-term benefits for total cost of ownership with cost-per-gigabit up to 62 percent lower than competitors, and up to 51 percent lower power consumption.

National Sales Manager, Business Solutions at D-Link Australia Phil Tarbox said, “D-Link works hard to deliver robust and competitive products to the market, and D-Link Partners tell us that decreasing power consumption is a major concern for their customers. These results from The Tolly Group demonstrate that D-Link Green Energy Saving Technology not only saves our customers money, but does not sacrifice performance.”

More About the DGS-3630-28TC Report:

The DGS-3630-28TC Layer 3 Stackable Managed Gigabit Switch is designed for small to medium businesses, small to medium enterprises, larger enterprises, and ISPs to deliver high performance, flexibility, fault tolerance, and advanced software features for maximum return on investment. The Tolly Report highlights include:

  • Line-rate throughput was equivalent across all GbE and 10GbE Ports
  • Latency tests showed lower or equivalent L2 and L3 latency than competitor across all tested packet sizes
  • Both switches stored all MAC addresses in the incremental test. For the random test, the DGS-3630-28TC Switch missed fewer addresses than its competitor.
  • Cost-per-Gigabit was 56 percent lower than competitor switches
  • DGS-3630-28TC delivered equivalent or better performance while keeping power consumption 38 percent lower than competitor

More About the DGS-1510-28X Report:

The DGS-1510-28X Layer 3 Stackable Managed Gigabit Switch provides a reliable, scalable, and modular interconnection between core switches and edge switches with rich capabilities and simplified flexibility. The DGS-1510-28X was tested against three competitors, and the Tolly Report highlights include:

  • Line-rate throughput was equivalent across all GbE and 10GbE Ports
  • Latency tests showed comparable L2 and L3 latency with competitors
  • Cost-per-Gigabit was 62 percent lower than one competitor switch and constantly better than two other competitors
  • Power consumption tests showed 62 percent lower energy usage
  • DGS-1510-28X delivered Telecommunications Energy Efficiency Radio (TEER) that was 104 percent better than one competitor
