Allied Telesis SwitchBlade x8100 Series Advanced Layer 3+ chassis switches are designed to deliver high availability, wirespeed performance, and a high port count. Two control card options, CFC400 and CFC960, provide solutions for medium and large networks.
The ability to stack two chassis when using the CFC960 provides a powerful and completely resilient network core solution, which can even be distributed over long distance.
The SwitchBlade x8100 Series is a high-performing scalable solution, providing an extensive range of connectivity options. Dual control cards are partnered with four or ten line card slots in the 6 or 12 slot chassis. Gigabit and 10 Gigabit line card options ensure a system capable of meeting the requirements of today’s networks, and the flexibility to expand when required.
Active-Active switching fabric utilizes all available system bandwidth all of the time, and fast failover is provided with the second control card in hot-standby. The SwitchBlade’s highly resilient design includes dual controllers, dual PSUs and dual redundant passive backplane paths. The ability to hot-swap additional control cards, line cards and system or PoE power supplies guarantees maximum system uptime. The SwitchBlade x8100 Series ensures online resources and applications are always available.
