A powerful and economical 1/10 Gigabit Ethernet switching solution for efficient Layer 2+ access for end user devices, entry-level servers, and network devices. Up to twelve switches can be stacked and managed with a single IP address to deliver reliable network performance.

Leverage familiar tools and practices

  • One common CLI and GUI using a well-known command language gets skilled network administrators productive quickly.
  • Maintain consistent configurations by running one OS release across all products in the series.
  • Rapidly deploy mirrored configurations to numerous devices by simply inserting in a USB key

Modernize campus network architectures

  • Supports loop-free redundancy without spanning tree using MLAG to create high availability and full bandwidth utilization.
  • Interfaces seamlessly with Cisco proprietary protocols like RPVST+ and devices running CDP for greater interoperability and integration.
  • Unite various networking products with the latest open standard protocols for more network choice.

Key features and innovations

  • Multi-chassis Link Aggregation (MLAG) creates active/active loop-free redundancy without implementing expensive spanning tree protocols.
  • Interface seamlessly with Rapid Per-VLAN Spanning Tree (RPVST+) for greater flexibility and interoperability with Cisco networks. (Available with OS 6.1 release)
  • Authentication Tiering allows admins to tier port authentication methods, such as 802.1x, MAC Authentication Bypass, and Captive Portal in priority order so that a single port can provide flexible access and security.
  • Policy Based Routing (PBR) allows you to forward packets based on assigned criteria beyond destination address. Policy Based Forwarding (PBF) is available
    on Layer 2 devices.
  • Remote Switch Port Analyzer (RSPAN) allows you to monitor ports across a Layer 2 domain without purchasing costly dedicated network taps.
  • DHCP Snooping ensures IP integrity on a Layer 2 switched domain to harden the security of the LAN.
  • OpenFlow 1.0 provides first-look SDN capabilities in environments outside the data center. Beta release
  • And hundreds more including the latest open-standard protocols.
