Product Review

The Fortinet FS-148E switch offers a high switching capacity of 104 Gbps and supports up to 4K VLANs, catering to extensive network segmentation needs. However, its lack of redundant power supply and Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports may limit its deployment in environments requiring high availability or PoE capabilities. Additionally, with a mean time between failures of over 10 years, it promises longevity, but its network latency of 3860 ns might not meet the needs of applications requiring ultra-low latency.


The Fortinet FS-148E is a networking switch designed to cater to the demands of medium to large-sized network environments. This device emphasizes efficiency and scalability, with a focus on delivering high-speed network connectivity and facilitating complex network configurations. Weighing 8.6 lbs (3.9 kg) and with dimensions of 1.73 x 12.2 x 17.3 inches (44 x 309 x 440 mm), it fits easily into standard rack mount setups, making it a convenient addition to any server room. Operating on a power supply of 100–240V AC at 50/60 Hz, the FS-148E is designed with an AC built-in power supply, although it does not support redundant power options. The average power consumption is noted at 19.804 W, with a maximum of 22.137 W, and it has a heat dissipation rate of 67.574 BTU/h, ensuring it maintains operational efficiency without overheating. It is built to function within an operating temperature range of 32°-113°F (0°–45°C) and a storage temperature range of -4°–158°F (-20°–70°C), guaranteeing reliability under various environmental conditions. A standout feature of the FS-148E is its switching capacity of 104 Gbps and the ability to process 155 million packets per second (Mpps) in duplex mode. This ensures swift data transfer across the network, minimizing bottlenecks and enhancing overall network performance. Despite its impressive speed, the device maintains a network latency of 3860 ns, ensuring efficient data handling without significant delays. The FS-148E does not support Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports, aligning it with environments where PoE is not a necessity. However, it boasts a substantial mean time between failures (MTBF) of over 10 years, highlighting its reliability and longevity in demanding operational conditions. Key hardware specifications include: - MAC Address Storage: The device can store up to 16K MAC addresses, facilitating extensive network management and security configurations. - Memory and Storage: It is equipped with 256 MB DDR3 memory and 64 MB of flash storage, sufficient for its operating needs and ensuring smooth performance. - VLAN and Link Aggregation: Supports up to 4K VLANs and has a link aggregation group size of 8, with a total of 16 link aggregation groups. This allows for flexible network segmentation and efficient use of bandwidth. Additional technical specifications include packet buffers of 1.5 MB, supporting advanced network traffic management, and an Access Control List (ACL) capacity of 640, enabling detailed access control configurations. The device also supports up to 16 spanning tree instances, enhancing network redundancy and resilience. In summary, the Fortinet FS-148E is engineered for environments requiring high-speed data transfer and extensive network management capabilities without the need for PoE functionality. Its robust feature set, combined with its reliability metrics such as a high MTBF, makes it a suitable option for organizations looking to optimize their network infrastructure for performance and scalability.
