Title: D-Link xStack DGS-3620-52P Gigabit Layer 3 Managed Switch Performance and Power Consumption Comparison Versus Cisco Systems Catalyst 3560-X

Publication date:   09 February 2015
Document number:    215105


Stackable L2/L3 managed switches provide scalability and flexibility in a compact form factor. While high-performance is mandatory for such devices, acquisition costs and power efficiency are important considerations as well.

D-Link Systems commissioned Tolly to evaluate its xStack DGS-3620-52P switch running the Enhanced Image and compare that to a Cisco Systems Catalyst 3560-X switch. Tests were conducted using 48GbE ports at both layer 2 and layer 3 and included ATIS power consumption measurements.

The D-Link Systems switch matched the performance of the Cisco Systems Catalyst across all the performance tests. In addition, the D-Link DGS-3620 has a significantly lower purchase price and consumes much less power than the Cisco Systems Catalyst 3560-X
