Series 10-Gigabit Switch Layer 2/3 D-Link DXS-3600 includes a new compact, high-performance switches that support wire-speed 10-Gigabit switching Ethernet, routing, and very low latency. 1U in height and the ability to choose the direction of ventilation from back to front or vice versa make a series of DXS-3600 is very suitable for use in data centers, enterprises and campus-level aggregation. DXS-3600 switches have 8 or 24 fixed port 10GbE SFP + and can use more ports by adding an expansion module. The module will not only provide additional ports 10G SFP +, but also increase the flexibility of 120-Gigabit stacking, 40-Gbps links, and reduce the cost of connections mezhstoechnyh 10G Base-T for different applications.
DXS-3600 switches provide high performance 10 Gbps data transfer switch fabric up to 640 Gbit / s for DXS-3600-16S, and 960 Gb / s for DXS-3600-32S, and a top speed of packet forwarding 595,2 Mpps. Switches are equipped with power supplies and hot-swappable fans, indicating a highly developed architecture of these devices. Modular design allows you to select the power network with AC or DC depending on the location. When two power supply modules they share the load and will help extend the life of another module. DXS-3600 series also includes a modular scheme of the fans. Three fans may overlap, providing N +1 redundancy for the system. If one of the fans fails, the remaining fans increase their speed, automatically determine the temperature of the system. And power supply modules and fan modules are hot swappable, which reduces downtime.
Standard and enhanced images
DXS-3600 switches provide two different software images. Standard image (Standard Image) includes extensive capabilities of Level 2: VLAN, multicasting, quality of service (QoS), security, data center and static routing. Advanced image (Enhanced Image) offers comprehensive routing IPv4/v6, including RIP, VRRP, OSPF, BGP, and multicasting level 3, such as IGMP, MLD, PIM-DM, SM, SDM, SSM and DVMRP.
Advanced image also supports L2/L3 MPLS VPN, which allows you to set the series switches DXS-3600 as the main router's network, or the network edge router MPLS.
Function of the data center
Data Center Bridging (DCB) is the mandatory installation of extensions to Ethernet networking in the data center. DXS-3600 switches support a number of major components of DCB, such as IEEE 802.1Qbb, IEEE 802.1Qaz and IEEE 802.1Qau. IEEE 802.1Qbb (flow control is based on priorities) provides flow control to compensate for the loss of data during network congestion. IEEE 802.1Qaz (enhanced transmission selection) controls the bandwidth allocation among different traffic classes. IEEE 802.1Qau (Congestion Notification) provides congestion control for the flow of data within the network domain in order to prevent overloading. DXS-3600 switches also support Layer without buffering packets, which reduces the time delay in the transmission of data on the network.
DXS-3600 switches allow users to adjust the air flow using various settings power supply modules and fans. Opportunity to choose the direction of ventilation from back to front or vice versa for maximum air conditioning for more efficient cooling of all the systems that are mounted in a rack in the data center using switches. The switches also feature built-in smart fans, internal temperature sensors that control temperature changes and react accordingly to the use of different fan speeds for different temperatures. At low temperatures, the fans will run more slowly, reducing the energy consumption of the switch and reduce the noise level.
