Policy-based 10GE Modular L2/L3/L4 Edge Switch
The Enterasys G-Series combines the small size and cost-effectiveness of a stackable, with the modularity of a chassis, into a single standalone switch that supports convergence, compliance and connectivity needs. The Enterasys G3 is a Gigabit Ethernet switch with 3 expansion slots that support 24-port Gigabit Ethernet as well as 2-port and 4-port 10GE I/O modules. With its wire-rate switching and routing capabilities, including IPv6 routing, the G3 is well suited for dynamic switching/routing environments that require high-density Gigabit Ethernet ports and high-capacity 10GE uplinks. Along with a switch capacity of 384 Gbps, the G3 provides 24 Ethernet ports (either fixed 10/100/1000Base-T or 1Gbps SFPs). Two of the ports on the 10/100/1000 switches are combo ports, which can be accessed via either the 10/100/1000Base-T or 1Gbps Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) connectors.
In order to provide a reliable, high-availability network, the G3 offers redundant power supplies and supports Link Aggregation Groups (LAGs), OSPF Equal Cost Multipath and Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP). Both the standard and Power over Ethernet (PoE) G3 models support redundant, integral power supplies, which can be configured to operate in either a load-sharing (redundant) or additive power configuration.
In conjunction with its non-blocking architecture, the G3’s robust Quality of Service (QoS) features enable strong support for converged multimedia networks, including Voice over IP, video, as well as all types of data-intensive applications. The G3’s highly customizable Layer 2/3/4 packet classification capabilities together with its intelligent queuing mechanisms ensure that mission-critical applications receive prioritized access to network resources.
In order to sustain a secure, feature rich and cost-effective network well into the future, the G3 includes a lifetime warranty.
