Description: Extreme Networks Summit X460-48p - Switch - L3 - managed - 48 x 10/100/1000 (PoE+) + 4 x SFP - rack-mountable - PoE+
Mfr Part #: 4ZT0F22726
The Summit X460 series is based on Extreme Networks revolutionary ExtremeXOS, a highly resilient OS that provides continuous uptime, manageability and operational efficiency. Each switch offers the same high-performance, non-blocking hardware technology, in the Extreme Networks tradition of simplifying network deployments through the use of common hardware and software throughout the network.
The Summit X460 switches are effective campus edge switches with IEEE 802.3at PoE-plus and can also serve as aggregation switches for traditional enterprise networks.
The Summit X460 is can also be used as a top-of-rack switch for many data center environments with features such as high-density Gigabit Ethernet for concentrated data center environments; XNV (ExtremeXOS Network Virtualization) for centralized network-based Virtual Machine (VM) inventory, VM location history and VM provisioning; Direct Attach to offload VM switching from servers, thereby improving performance; high-capacity Layer 2/Layer 3 scalability for highly virtualized data centers; and intra-rack and cross-rack stacking with industry leading flexibility.
- Flexible IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE-plus)
- MPLS/H-VPLS support
- Flexible IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus to meet the growing demand of converged network applications
- Advanced Layer 2/Layer 3 switching and MPLS/H-VPLS support
- Flexible port configuration
Summit X460 offers flexible port configurations. For Summit X460, with four dedicated Gigabit Ethernet fiber ports and four shared Gigabit Ethernet fiber ports, the switch can have up to 8 fiber GbE ports, while still providing 20 Gigabit Ethernet copper ports (PoE-plus or non-PoE). If higher density copper ports are required, the switch can provide up to 24 Gigabit Ethernet copper ports while providing 4 Gigabit Ethernet fiber ports. For stacking, depending upon the needs for bandwidth across the units in a stack, Summit X460 supports 40 Gbps SummitStack or 80 Gbps SummitStack-V80 stacking option modules as well as SummitStack-V on the 10GbE ports.
- SummitStack-V - flexible stacking over 10 Gigabit Ethernet
ExtremeXOS supports the SummitStack-V capability to utilize 10 GbE ports as stacking ports, enabling the use of standard cabling and optics technologies used for 10 GbE such as XFP, SFP+, 10GBASE-T and XENPAK. SummitStack-V provides long-distance stacking connectivity of up to 40 km while reducing the cable complexity of implementing a stacking solution.
- Intelligent switching and MPLS/H-VPLS support
Summit X460 supports sophisticated and intelligent Layer 2 switching, as well as Layer 3 IPv4/IPv6 routing including policy-based switching/routing, Provider Bridges, bidirectional ingress and egress Access Control Lists, and bandwidth control by 8 Kbps granularity both for ingress and egress. To provide scalable network architectures used mainly for Carrier Ethernet network deployment, Summit X460 supports MPLS LSP-based Layer 3 forwarding and Hierarchical VPLS (H-VPLS) for transparent LAN services. With H-VPLS, transparent Layer 3 networks can be extended throughout the Layer 3 network cloud by using a VPLS tunnel between the regional transparent LAN services typically built by Provider Bridges (IEEE 802.1ad) technology.
- IEEE 802.3at PoE-plus
IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet has been widely used in the campus enterprise edge network for Ethernet-powered devices such as wireless access points, Voice over IP phones, and security cameras. Ethernet port extenders such as Extreme Networks ReachNXT 100-8t can also utilize PoE, making installation and management easier and reducing maintenance costs. The newer IEEE 802.3at PoE-plus standard expands upon Power over Ethernet by increasing the power limit up to 30 watts, and by standardizing power negotiation by using LLDP. Summit X460 supports IEEE 802.3at PoE-plus and supports standards compliant PoE devices today and into the future.
