High performance core switches for next generation 100G campus New user demands and technology advances are increasingly putting pressure on campus networks requiring them to scale to support more devices and deliver more bandwidth. The rapid growth in wireless traffic, accelerated by the adoption of 802.11ac and 802.11ax Wi-Fi, is propelling the migration from 1GbE to Multigigabit at the access and, driving the need for faster networks at the aggregation and core. Workgroups and data center servers are migrating from 1GbE connectivity to 10GbE Copper or 25GbE Fiber with 100GbE uplinks to keep up with application demands.


              Premium core/aggregation switching

  • Network core layer can be distributed across the campus, deploying ports and switching capacity where they are needed.
  • The performance, scalability, and availability of a high-end enterprise-class chassis.
  • The deployment flexibility of fixed form factor switches                   40GbE and 100GbE for maximum performance
  • Up to 32x 40/100 GbE ports per switch.
  • Up to 8x 100 GbE stacking ports, 1.6 Tbps of stacking bandwidth per switch.
  • Deliver the performance and scalability required by future generations of wireless access points, IoT and LTE devices.   Highly resilient core switch  
  • Redundant, hot-swappable power supplies and fans
  • In-Service Software Upgrades (ISSU)
  • Multi-Chassis Trunking (MCT) for core failover with load balancing
  • Hitless stack insertion and removal

  • 32x 40/100 GbE QSFP28 ports supporting native 40 GbE or 100 GbE, or breakout* to 4x10 GbE or 4x25 GbE
  • Up to 8 of the rightmost QSFP28 ports as stacking ports
  • 2x hot-swappable load sharing power supplies and 6x hot- swappable fan assemblies with reversible airflow options (Power supplies and FAN airflows must be the same)
