It features 32 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) ports, providing a high-density networking solution for applications requiring fast and reliable data transfer. This switch is equipped with the IP Base software, offering a versatile range of features for network management and security. This model does not include a power supply, allowing users to select the most appropriate power option for their specific needs. It supports back-to-front cooling, ensuring efficient heat dissipation and maintaining optimal performance under heavy loads. For management purposes, it includes a 10/100/1000 Base-T port and a Type A USB port, facilitating easy configuration and maintenance. The switch is designed with field-replaceable fans, incorporating five fans to ensure continuous operation and system reliability. It boasts a system throughput of up to 800 Gbps, capable of handling large volumes of data traffic. With hardware-based IPv4 and IPv6 routing, it delivers up to 250 million packets per second (Mpps) for IPv4 and up to 125 Mpps for IPv6, ensuring efficient data flow across the network. Key hardware-based services include Layer 2 bridging, with a performance of up to 250 Mpps, and a large capacity for MAC entries, supporting up to 55,000 entries. It also offers advanced features for network monitoring and analysis, such as Flexible Netflow with support for up to 128,000 entries and the capability to handle 8 line rate bidirectional sessions for SPAN and RSPAN.
  • Support for up to 4094 total VLANs and same number of SVIs, enabling extensive network segmentation and efficient management of virtual networks.
  • Capacity for 32,000 IGMP groups and 12,000 DHCP snooping entries, providing robust support for multicast applications and enhancing network security.
  • Support for jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes, facilitating the efficient handling of large data packets and improving network performance.
Further enhancing its capabilities, the switch supports a maximum of 10,000 Spanning Tree Protocol instances, 47,000 ARP entries, and can accommodate up to 8 virtual switch links, either 1GE or 10GE, enabling high flexibility in network design and connectivity. With onboard memory of 4 GB and a dual-core 1.5 GHz CPU, it offers ample processing power to handle demanding network tasks.
