Gigabit Ethernet Switch
D-Link has launched a Layer 3 Modular Gigabit Ethernet Switch, the DGS-3312SR.
This switch can be used as a stacking master switch or as a small core switch,
supporting copper and fiber connections.
The switch has 12 dedicated 2 Gbps links to 12 stackable switches in a fault-tolerant
star architecture, redundant power backup, modular configuration, Layer 3 packet
routing, and extensive management capability.
The Fault Tolerant Stacking scheme uses a star architecture, where packets are
switched directly through the Stacking Master. Any single broken link between

Expansion modules available for the switch include DEM-540 (4-port stacking
module), DEM-340MG (4-port SFP (mini GBIC) module) and DEM-340T (4-port copper
