D-Link DGS-3630-28TC Layer 3 Stackable Managed Gigabit Switch Performance Comparison Versus Cisco Systems Catalyst 3650-24TD-E
27 March 2017
Stackable L2/L3 managed switches provide scalability and flexibility in a compact form factor. 10GbE uplink ports provide high-bandwidth connections for server or stacking connections. While high-performance is mandatory for such devices, acquisition cost is an important consideration as well.
D-Link Systems commissioned Tolly to evaluate its DGS-3630-28TC switch (24GbE and four 10GbE ports) running the Enhanced Image and compare that to a Cisco Systems Catalyst 3650-24TD-E switch (26 GbE and two 10GbE ports). Tests were conducted using all ports at both layer 2 and layer 3 and included ATIS power consumption measurements.
The D-Link Systems switch matched or exceeded the performance of the Cisco Systems Catalyst across all the performance tests. In addition, the D-Link DGS-3630 has a significantly lower purchase price and consumes much less power than the Cisco Systems Catalyst 3650-24TD-E.
