Future firmware Release
The DES-6500 is a Layer 3 backbone chassis-based Gigabit switch that provides everything a business needs
for a switched network. This 9-slot chassis offers a high switch fabric capacity of 160Gbps supporting wirespeed L2/L3 packet switching in dynamic or static environment, high port density, comprehensive network
media support with L2/L3/L4 Class of Service (CoS) and Access Control List (ACL), Multiple link
aggregation, fault tolerance with hot-swappable CPU module/line card and redundant power supply, traffic
monitoring, and comprehensive network management. Designed for performance and flexibility, this chassis
offers you the price/performance ratio necessary to deploy a cost-effective enterprise backbone network.
High Scalability, Availability, & Security
With 8 line card slots and a wide range of user-selectable port types and speeds, the switch provides an easy
scalable expansion as your needs grow. This switch provides redundancy of power supply, link aggregation,
STP, and VRRP, which prevents single point of failure, minimizes possible network downtime, and increases
the network’s availability. Line card hot-swappable capability makes it easy to swap defective line cards,
shorten the network restoration time, and simplify troubleshooting. Increase security by taking advantage of
802.1X, RADIUS authentication, TACACS+, SSL, and SSH network security features. The hardware and
software features of the DES-6500 all work together to allow customers to build affordable, high performance,
high availability, and highly secure networks.
Up to 96 Gigabit Ports, 192 Fast Ethernet Ports, 142 Mpps Forwarding Rate
You can configure the switch with up to 96 Gigabit ports, 192 twisted-pair Fast Ethernet ports or a
combination of both. Copper and fiber Gigabit are supported. Built-in wire-speed switch fabric provides
hardware-based packet filtering and forwarding, while packet routing is performed by on-board ASICs, which
is many times faster than traditional CPU-based routers.
Network Management
The DES-6500 supports a variety of network management options including: console CLI, Telnet
configuration, Web-based and SNMP v1, v2c, v3 management, RMON monitoring, TFTP firmware upgrade,
TFTP configuration download/upload, Port Mirroring for troubleshooting, and BootP/DHCP IP assignment. It
also supports advanced traffic management options including: 802.3x, Bandwidth Control, Broadcast Storm
Control, Traffic Segmentation, Head of Line Blocking, and IGMP snooping. Live CPU utilization monitoring
and port description are available to help troubleshoot when a performance degradation occurs.
Advanced Enterprise Features
The DES-6500 supports IP (RIP, OSPF) and IGMP, DVMRP, and PIM multicasting for logical network
segmentation and traffic control. It also supports a complete set of Spanning Tree Protocol (STP),
Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), and Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol for Layer 2 redundancy.
With Dual Image support the LAN switch provides options to boot from one image or another.
