High density 10 Gigabit Ethernet data center switch
The Enterasys 7100-Series is a family of high density, high-performance 10Gigabit
Ethernet switches that are ideally suited for the demands of today’s Enterprise
data center. The 7100-Series is an ideal fit for support of high bandwidth and latency-sensitive
The 7100-Series offers flexible connectivity options using modular SFP+ transceivers
and Direct Attach Cables as well as integrated 10GBASE-T in both 24 and 48 access
port configurations. Gigabit, 10 Gigabit, and 40 Gigabit ports are supported. Up
to 64 line rate 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports can be supported in a in single rack unit
configuration, maximizing the space available for servers and storage in dense data
center Top of Rack (ToR) applications. Configurable air flow allows for adaptation
to the specific hot-aisle / cold-aisle configuration of your data center.
The 7100-Series 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches are available in the following configurations:
- 7148 - 48 ports 1/10Gb SFP+ with 4 10/40Gb QSFP+ ports
- 7124 - 24 ports 1/10Gb SFP+ with 4 10/40Gb QSFP+ ports
- 7148T - 48 ports 1/10GBASE-T with 4 10/40Gb QSFP+ ports
- 7124T - 24 ports 1/10GBASE-T with 4 10/40Gb QSFP+ ports
All systems support redundant modular power supplies and fan modules and Enterasys
Virtual Switch Bonding to configure highly available system configurations for mission
critical data center environments.
The 7100-Series is an integral element of the Enterasys OneFabricTM network architecture.
OneFabric is designed to help enterprises maintain an integrated end user experience
while migrating towards a virtualized network environment.
Virtualization awareness addresses the need for visibility and awareness as virtual
servers get deployed and adapt to Virtual Machine mobility. Data Center Bridging
effectively supports the convergence of LAN I/O and storage traffic in the data
center fabric. High performance virtual switching increases the available bandwidth
in the data center and enables resilient network topologies to servers and aggregation
switches. Higher aggregated capacity enables data centers to effectively scale with
lower latency and higher levels of availability.
Management integration and automation enables a high degree of visibility and control
of critical data center resources, providing a consistent edge-to-core network implementation.
Bandwidth and priority policies can be centrally provisioned, delivering a consistent
implementation across the network.
