D-Links xStack Series is a set of Next Generation high performance stackable switches that deliver high scalability, wire-speed Gigabit performance, high availability, integrated 10-Gigabit stacking, redundant power option, and support for stacking in a ring or star topology (requires DGS-3324SRi ). xStack Switches can stack up to 12 units in a stack*, providing up to 384 Gigabit ports, and up to 40Gbps of shared stacking bandwidth in a ring topology or 20Gbps of dedicated stacking bandwidth in a star topology.
*Max number of units in a stack may vary depending on model used.
The D-Link DGS-712 1000BASE-T Copper Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceiver is based on the SFP Multi Source Agreement (MSA). It is compatible with the Gigabit Ethernet and 1000BASE-T standards as specified in IEEE Std 802.3z and IEEE Std 802.3ab. The 1000BASE-T physical layer IC (PHY) can be accessed via I2C, allowing access to all PHY settings and features.
