Highlights for Enterasys S-Series S8 Chassis Fan Tray

The Enterasys S-Series delivers a powerful combination of Terabit-class performance along with granular visibility and control over users, services, and applications to meet the increasing demands of today's businesses and enable optimization of key technologies including voice and video, virtualization, and cloud computing. Unlike competitive solutions lacking comprehensive centralized management and adequate high availability services, the Enterasys S-Series drives down operational costs through a combination of management automation, a robust and highly resilient distributed architecture, built-in security, and flexible power configurations specifically designed to reduce power and cooling costs. The highly versatile Enterasys S-Series delivers both the comprehensive functionality and configuration flexibility to be deployed as a premium high-density network edge access device, high performance distribution layer switch, resilient enterprise class multi-Terabit core router, or as a data center virtualization solution.

The Enterasys S-Series chassis utilize both fabric-based point-to-point and fabric-less meshed forwarding architectures. The S8 chassis uses a fabric-based forwarding architecture that provides multiple high bandwidth data paths between I/O modules. This chassis is optimized for redundant high performance switching and routing as well as providing flexible connectivity.

  • A future-proofed, standards-based multi-Terabit architecture for secure, reliable deployment of business-critical applications
  • Best-in-class Quality of Service functionality for predictable performance of demanding voice, video, and data applications
  • Flow-based architecture delivers unrivaled end-to-end visibility and control over users, services, and applications ensuring consistent end-user experience
  • Built-in hardware support for 40 and 100 Gbps Ethernet, emerging protocols (IPv6) and large scale deployment protocols (MPLS)
  • Edge-to-core architecture flexibility reduces deployment and maintenance costs and simplifies network management
  • Management automation and built-in resiliency features combine to drive down operational costs and maximize uptime
  • Optimized flow-based architecture for iSCSI, CEE, and virtualization enabling consolidation of servers, applications, and storage, while reducing data center operational costs
  • Flexible power configurations optimized for low power consumption and thermal output drives down data center power and cooling costs
  • High-density, small form factor chassis providing over 1700 ports in a standard equipment rack that reduces footprint costs and scales from hundreds of Gigabits to multi-Terabit performance
