DATASHEET N-Series Diamond DFE Convergence-ready, 10GE Modular L2/L3/L4 Switch for Edge-to-Core and Data Center Optimized for network core and data center deployments with enhanced policy capabilities Industry-leading 24x7x365 business continuity via a fully Distributed Switch Routing architecture Benefits Business Alignment Extends the N-Series industry-leading investment protection • Flexible, high-performance Gigabit and 10 Gigabit connectivity options for ease of deployment and upgrade Flow-based architecture optimized for iSCSI and Server Virtualization • The industry’s most granular multi-layer classification capabilities ensure on-time delivery and prioritization of today’s mission-critical applications 1.68 Tbps switching architecture enables high density Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet switching and routing deployments Product Overview Enterasys N-Series Diamond Distributed Forwarding Engines (DFEs) are optimized for large scale, multi-user policy deployments in data center server farms and at the distribution and core layers of the network. Diamond DFEs support the full range of Secure Networks™ features, including advanced Quality of Service (QoS) and per-user traffic rate limiting. Available in 10/100/1000, 1000 Base-X and 10 Gigabit configurations, Diamond DFEs include additional processing power, memory, policy capacity expansion, and advanced routing licenses for medium to large enterprise backbone and distribution-layer routing applications. Capable of being installed in any of the N-Series chassis, Diamond DFEs are designed to provide high-performance, high-density Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet aggregation at the core and distribution layers of enterprise networks. N-Series DFEs significantly enhance the multi-user policy capacities of the N-Series, providing support for up to 2,000 authenticated users per chassis, enabling advanced policy management, QoS and firewall-like control for the largest of enterprise or campus networks. This enhanced capacity allows the N-Series to act as a proxy policy gateway for other network devices such as wireless access points and third-party switches, ensuring only authorized users and devices can access the network and its applications. The N-Series implements the industry’s only granular, flow-based architecture to intelligently manage individual user and application conversations—not just ports or VLANs. Policy rules combined with deep-packet inspection that easily and intelligently sense and automatically respond to security threats and Denial of Service (DoS) attacks while ensuring the highest reliability and QoS. Diamond DFEs utilize the unique, distributed fault-tolerance architecture of the N-Series. Each DFE is an integrated switching, routing, and management module that makes forwarding decisions, enforces security policies, and classifies incoming traffic. Multiple DFEs create a single, highly-manageable logical switching and routing system. Diamond DFEs are the logical and ideal choice for enterprises that require market-leading reliability, performance, and security in their network. • High-availability “always on” networking optimized for VoIP and VoD convergence Operational Efficiency • Advanced data center and backbone routing services including support for large router topologies, server load balancing, comprehensive traffic accounting and capacity planning • Fully distributed switching architecture that is unmatched for resiliency and availability • Low power consumption and thermal output BTU/Hour drives down power and cooling costs therefore lowering TCO Security • Flow-based architecture delivers end-to-end visibility and control over users, services, and applications • Provides security at the core of the network with advanced policy and routing control, supplemented with advanced Anti-DoS attack capabilities and ACL-like security on every port for downstream devices • Diamond DFEs enhance the N-Series position as the only enterprise switch to enable up to 1000 high-capacity multiuser, multi-method authentications on every port (802.1X, Web, MAC address) Support and Services • Industry-leading customer satisfaction and first call resolution • Personalized services, including site surveys, network design, installation, and training There is nothing more important than our customers.
