ExaScale: The Next
Step in Ethernet Technology
Networks ExaScale platforms are virtualized chassis-based switches
that enable a new way of designing switching and routing
infrastructures. ExaScale’s architecture, and patented backplane and
ASIC technology are designed to increase network availability,
agility and efficiency while reducing power and cooling costs.
ExaScale supports mission critical applications across converged
fabrics in data center, telecommunication provider, service
provider, enterprise and HPCC networks.
platform coupled with FTOS make a cost-effective and flexible
deployment option complete with comprehensive management, automation
and resource provisioning capabilities.
The Force10 E-Series switch/routers
provide best-in-class resiliency, unmatched scalability, line-rate
performance and full L2 switching and IPv4/IPv6 routing. Based on
revolutionary system architecture that combines fully distributed
hardware and modular software, the E-Series switch/routers ensure
predictable application performance, increase network availability
and reduce operating costs.
The Force10 E-Series sets a new
standard for high performance switch/routers with unmatched
scalability to 1,260 Gigabit Ethernet or 224 Ten Gigabit Ethernet
ports per chassis, consistent performance with ACLs on all ports,
and full L2 switching and L3 routing. These groundbreaking products
simplify network applications from server/cluster consolidation,
grid computing, campus backbones, and next-generation data centers.
The Force10 E-Series E1200/E600
provides 56.25 Gigabits per second per slot and the E300 delivers 25
Gigabits per second per slot. All deliver predictable line-rate
performance with any combination of features enabled, deterministic
low latency and jitter, robust L2/L3 functionality, and the
resiliency to thwart denial of service (DoS) attacks. Built upon the
powerful and cost-effective Force10 architecture, the E-Series sets
the industry standard both for resiliency and performance.
The Force10 Networks C-Series are
resilient chassis-based switches that deliver reliability, network
control and scalability. The C-Series is designed to support mission
critical applications with very low latency across converged
networks. Comprehensive management capabilities make the C-Series a
cost-effective and flexible deployment option.
S-Series Access Switches:
Delivering Core Resiliency to the Network Edge
The Force10 S-Series is a family of
resilient, small form factor Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet
switches designed to exceed requirements for enterprises and service
providers alike. S-Series switches complement the resiliency and
density of the Force10 E-Series, providing a scalable, high
performance end-to-end network solution.
