D-Link Corporation, a world-known designer and provider of high-end network solutions, has released its new child-switch DES-1100-26 which belongs to EasySmart series. All products of this series are called to ensure advanced performance and scalability characteristics. DES-1100-26 is oriented basically for small and middle business networks and offers efficient corporate solutions for a moderate price. This switch supports the most asked-for options of L2 level necessary for foolproof employment. Moreover, it gives the possibility of setup and control via the user-friendly Web-interface.
