Optimized for the Network Edge
The Gold Distributed Forwarding Engine
(DFE) modules for the Matrix N-Series
are designed specifically for high-density,
10/100, 10/100/1000 and 100FX network
edge applications. This new line of DFEs
provides a very cost-effective and flexible
option for customers deploying switching
at the edge of the network.
Leveraging Enterasys’ nTERA™ ASICs,
the Gold DFEs deliver scalable performance
and flexibility to ensure comprehensive
switching, routing, Quality of Service,
security, and traffic containment unmatched
by competitive solutions.
The Gold DFEs are supported in the Matrix
N3, Matrix N5 and Matrix N7 for guaranteed
investment protection across the entire
platform. Through a flexible, optional
software upgrade, these modules support
1+1 redundancy and advanced routing for
mission-critical network applications.
Module Configurations
The Gold DFEs provide flexibility with a
variety of port-density and technology
options for the edge:
• 48 10/100Base-TX RJ45 ports with
one expansion module slot
• 48 10/100Base-TX RJ21 ports with
one expansion module slot
• 72 10/100Base-TX RJ45 ports
• 72 10/100Base-TX RJ21 ports
• 40 10/100/1000Base-TX RJ45 ports
with one expansion module slot
• 60 10/100/1000Base-TX RJ45 ports
• 48 100Base-FX MT-RJ ports with one
expansion module slot
• 48 10/100Base-TX RJ45 with Power
over Ethernet and one expansion slot
• 6 1000Base-X Mini-GBIC port
network expansion module
All modules can be installed in any slot in
the Matrix N3, Matrix N5 and Matrix N7.
Those modules with an expansion module
slot support a 6-port 1000Base-X MiniGBIC network expansion module.
Scalable Edge Connectivity
The Gold DFE dramatically increases the
edge density for 10/100 and 10/100/1000
connectivity with the highest module density
in the industry. This not only provides
extensive scalability, but also optimizes the
cost-effectiveness of the Matrix N-Series.

Common Enterasys Switching,
Routing, and Management
The Gold DFE uses the common base
capabilities of the Matrix N-Series family.
As such, Matrix N-Series switches configured with Gold DFEs offer a consistent
feature set and management functionality.
This reduces implementation and management costs of an end-to-end Enterasys
network.

Note:
1. Gold Distributed Forwarding Engines (DFEs) are designed to work seamlessly with other Gold DFEs in the same chassis; however, they cannot be
mixed with Platinum DFEs in the same chassis.
2. By default, the Gold DFE does not provide high availability (system redundancy).To get 1+1 redundancy, the N-EOS-RED software license must be
purchased and installed.
3. Basic EOS routing is included with each Gold DFE. EOS supports static routes and RIP.
4. Only one Advanced Routing Module (N-EOS-L3) is required per chassis (N3, N5, or N7).
5. The Advanced Routing Package (N-EOS-L3) includes OSPF, DVMRP, and PIM-SM.
