The PowerConnect 6200 series is Dell’s most advanced switching product line, offering
Power over Ethernet (PoE) and advanced switching capabilities including high-density,
high-performance stacking and 10 Gigabit Ethernet capabilities scalable from the small
business to the Enterprise Edge.
High Density
The PowerConnect 6200 series will offer versions with 24 and 48 ports of 10/100/1000Base-T
Gigabit Ethernet. Delivering significant rack density, the PowerConnect 6200 gives users the flexibility
to maximize server and workstation connectivity in a 1U form factor. Up to 576 servers and/or clients
can be connected in a stack of 6200 series switches to help provide the maximum density, flexibility
and manageability.
Power over Ethernet Support (PoE)
The PowerConnect 6200 series offers support for power-dependent network applications including
wireless, VoIP, video conferencing and badge reading. The 6200 series PoE switches have the
capabilities to provide up to 15.4 watts of power for network-attached devices like WLAN Access
Points (WAPs) and Voice over IP (VoIP) handsets.
High-Performance Stacking
The PowerConnect 6200 series supports high-performance resilient stacking for up to twelve systems,
which allows increased throughput to be added as needed without affecting network performance.
With each switch supporting up to 184 Gbps in switch capacity, the 6200 series can provide almost
2 Terabits of capacity in a single stack!
10 Gigabit Ethernet
The PowerConnect 6200 series switches support up to four 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks for
connectivity directly to 10 GE routers, servers, enterprise backbones and data centers.
Advanced Layer 3 Capabilities
The PowerConnect 6200 series supports advanced Layer 3 routing and multicast protocols to help
reduce congestion and manage traffic in the network. The PowerConnect 6200 series supports
frequently used LAN routing protocols such as RIPv1/v2, OSPFv2/v3, VRRP, IGMP, DVMRP, PIM and
Advanced QoS
The PowerConnect 6200 offers flexibility in Quality of Service (QoS) by giving network administrators
the ability to prioritize time-critical network traffic based on a variety of user-defined criteria.
Administrators can expedite traffic based on L2 or L3 information to provide greater control over
traffic flow within the network.
Advanced Security
Support for L2-L4 Access Control Lists (ACLs) on the switch allows the user to perform deep packet
inspection. 802.1x port authentication offers both single and multiple host access. Further security is
provided through Denial of Service (DoS) Attack Prevention, whereby the switch can protect against
common network attacks, such as Blat, Land, Smurf, Ping of Death, Xmascan, Nullscan, Scan SYNFIN,
in addition to CPU attacks, such as VLAN flooding, TCP SIM, TCP port scan, IP address spoofing and
MAC address spoofing.
IPv6 Ready
IPv6 is version six of the “Internet Protocol” that has been in development for over 20 years. IPv6 has
been designed to address IP address limitations of previous version of the Internet Protocol, enabling
an increased number of unique IP addresses for broader scalability worldwide now and in the future.
Value and Flexibility
The PowerConnect 6200 series offers additional value because the unique modular design allows you to
upgrade to advanced stacking or 10 Gigabit Ethernet only when you need it. Plus the PowerConnect 6200
series offers further flexibility and value with optional modules that allow for either 10 Gigabit optical or
CX-4 copper interfaces, or both, based on your needs.
