D-link presents 10Gbps for small and medium-sized businesses

D-Link has released a layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet switch for small and medium-sized businesses that offers modular slots for 10Gig backbones.
He added that, unlike some other PoE switches, the DGS-3426P has a power supply hefty enough for all 24 ports to supply their rated power of 15.4W simultaneously.

One limitation is that its Layer 2 capability - "actually Layer 2+," said Bharadia - means it can do static routing, and it supports VLANs and 802.1x, but unlike a Layer 3 switch it can't handle the likes of subnets or the full virtual router redundancy protocol (VRRP).
