Extreme Networks Summit X480 Product Brief

Extreme Networks Product Brief
Summit X480 Series
The Summit X480 series switch is a versatile,
high-end ethernet switch for data center, enterprise aggregation, and Carrier Ethernet deployments. Summit X480 helps optimize application
performance for a variety of network deployments
with its rich features and high scalability.
Summit® X480 Series—The highly scalable and versatile
gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch.
High-Performance Switching and
Routing

10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity in 1RU form factor
• Optional 4-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet to provide
40 Gbps uplinks
• Optional 40 Gbps stacking for up to eight switches
in a stack to provide up to 384 Gigabit Ethernet in one
logically integrated unit
• Optional 128 Gbps stacking for up to eight switches
in a stack to provide high-speed stacking
• Supports Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching, as well as
MPLS/VPLS High Scalability in 1RU Compact Switch
• Up to 512k MAC address support for highly scalable
Layer 2 networks
• Up to 512k IPv4 routes for highly scalable Layer 3
networks
• Up to 60k Access Control Lists (ACLs) for highly secure
networks
High Availability
• ExtremeXOS® modular OS for a highly available network
operation
• Carrier-grade redundant networking protocol including
Ethernet Automatic Protection Switching (EAPS),
internal redundant AC/DC power supply and field
replaceable/ hot swappable fan tray
Summit X480 provides high density for Gigabit
Ethernet in a very small 1RU form factor for up to
48 ports in one system and 384 ports in a stacked
system using backward compatible SummitStack™
or high-speed SummitStack128 running at 128
gigabit per second. Summit X480 also offers ten
Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for up to six ports in
one system and 16 ports in a stacked system with
the industry standard XFP interface.
For emerging demands from data, storage, voice,
and data convergence, Summit X480 provides
highly scalable Layer 2/3 switching and MPLS/HVPLS by supporting up to 512k Layer 2 MAC
addresses or 512k IPv4 Longest Prefix Match
routing tables. Summit X480 enables data center,
enterprise and Carrier Ethernet aggregation and
core backbone deployment in AC-powered and
DC-powered environments.
Summit X480 simplifies network operation with
ExtremeXOS modular OS, available across
Extreme Networks Ethernet switches. The
ExtremeXOS operating system provides high
availability and simplicity with one OS everywhere
in the network.
Target Applications
• Top-of-rack switch for servers in enterprise
data centers
• High-performance core switch for a small
network
• High-performance gigabit aggregation switch
in a traditional three-tiered network
• Carrier Ethernet network switch that can
aggregate connectivity for first mile access
concentrators such as DSLAM and CMTS
Extreme Networks Product Brief
High Performance Switching
and Routing
High Scalability in 1RU
Compact Switch
Summit X480 is available in three
different port configuration options:
24-port Gigabit Ethernet and 2-port 10
Gigabit Ethernet (Summit X480-24x),
48-port copper Gigabit Ethernet
(Summit X480-48t), or 48-port fiber
Gigabit Ethernet (Summit X480-48x).
All front panel ports run at non-blocking,
wire-speed performance and can carry
wire-rate traffic towards the Versatile
Interface Module-2 (VIM2) slot.
Summit X480 offers flexible configuration by using optional VIM2 modules
which are: 4-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet
Module (VIM2-10G4X), 2-port
SummitStack Module (VIM2-SummitStack)
and 2-port SummitStack128 Module
(VIM2-SummitStack128)
Summit X480 supports highly scalable
Layer 2 or Layer 3 networks, as well as
highly secure networks. Summit X480
has expansion memory called TCAM built
inside which can be partitioned by
application types or by deployment
scenarios. For larger Layer 2 network
deployments, Summit X480 can support
up to 512k MAC addresses. Similarly for
larger Layer 3 routing environments,
Summit X480 can support core routing
class scalability for up to 512k IPv4 routing
LPM entries in hardware.
VIM Options
Intelligent Switching and
MPLS Support
Summit X480 supports sophisticated and
intelligent Layer 2 switching, as well as
None (default option)
VIM2-10G4X
Layer 3 IPv4/IPv6 routing including
policy-based switching/routing, Provider
Bridging, bi-directional ingress and
egress Access Control List (ACL), and
bandwidth control by 8 Kbps granularity
both for ingress and egress. To provide
scalable network architectures used
mainly for Carrier Ethernet network
deployment, Summit X480 supports
MPLS LSP based Layer 3 forwarding
and Hierarchical VPLS (H-VPLS) for
transparent LAN services. With H-VPLS,
transparent Layer 3 networks can be
extended throughout the Layer 3
network cloud by using a VPLS tunnel
between the regional transparent LAN
services typically built by Provider
Bridging (IEEE 802.1ad) technology.
