Layer 3 Stackable 10GbE Managed Switch

The DXS-3600-32S is a 24-port SFP+ 10-Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch featuring wired-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet switching, routing, and very low latency. This switch delivers high-performance 10 GbE capacity of up to 960 Gbps and forwarding rates of up to 714 Mpps. The switch features hot swappable power supplies and fan trays to provide a redundant, high availability architecture. With 1U height and front-to-back air flow, the DXS-3600-32S is suitable for top-of-rack (ToR) deployment in data centres or enterprise and campus aggregation network environments.

Security, Performance & Availability

The DXS-3600-32S switch provides a complete set of security features including L2/L3/L4 multi-layer Access Control Lists and 802.1x user authentication via TACACS+ and RADIUS servers. This ensures the network is protected from unauthorised access. A robust set of L2/L3/L4 QoS/CoS solutions help ensure that critical network services are served with priority. Bandwidth Control can be flexibly set for each port using pre-defined thresholds to assure a committed level of service for end users. For advanced applications, flow-based bandwidth control allows easy fine-tuning of service types based on specific IP addresses or protocols.

Data Centre Features

Data Centre Bridging (DCB) is an essential set of enhancements to Ethernet for networking in data center environments. The DXS-3600 Series switches support several core components of Data Center Bridging (DCB) such as IEEE 802.1Qbb, IEEE 802.1Qaz, and IEEE 802.1Qau. IEEE 802.1Qbb (Priority-based Flow Control) provides flow control to ensure there is no data loss during network congestion. IEEE 802.1Qaz (Enhanced Transmission Selection) manages the allocation of bandwidth amongst different traffic classes. IEEE 802.1Qau (Congestion Notifcation) provides congestion management for data flows within network domains to avoid congestion. The DXS-3600 Series switches also support cut-through switching, which reduces latency when transmitting data in a network.
