High-Performance and Highly Scalable Switching and Routing
Summit X480 offers core-class intelligent switching and routing with exceptional port density and high-performance
stacking technology powered by the ExtremeXOS modular OS. With its high performance switching and routing,
Summit X480 helps enhance the data center, Carrier Ethernet and enterprise aggregation network.
High-Performance Switching and
Routing
SummitStack – High-Performance
Stacking
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), 2-port
SummitStack128 Module (VIM2-SummitStack128) or 2-port
SummitStack-V80 Module (VIM2-SummitStack-V80) (see
Figure 1: Port configuration options for Summit X480 switches).
Summit X480 supports SummitStack, which provides 40 Gbps (VIM2-SummitStack), 80 Gbps (VIM2-SummitStack-V80) or
128 Gbps (VIM2-SummitStack128) of stacking bandwidth.
High-speed 128 Gbps stacking is ideal for demanding applications where a high volume of traffic traverses through the
stacking links, yet bandwidth is not compromised through
stacking. High-speed stacking is very useful in applications
such as top of rack when stacked with Summit X480 and
Summit X650 (requires optional conversion cable) and gigabit
aggregation in large enterprise or data center networks. With
the longer stacking cables such as 5-meters, stacking can be
configured through different racks horizontally in a row (see
Figure 3) as opposed to typical stacking system installed
vertically in a rack.
Flexible Port Configuration
Summit X480 offers flexible port configurations from standard
configuration to optional VIM2 modules. For Summit X480-24x,
half of the Gigabit Ethernet ports can handle dual personality—
select from either 10/100/1000BASE-T copper Gigabit Ethernet
or 100/1000BASE-X fiber Gigabit Ethernet connectivity. In the
case of Summit X480-48t, the last four Gigabit Ethernet ports
are configured as dual personality ports to provide flexibility
between copper and fiber Gigabit Ethernet.
Through the VIM2 slot, Summit X480 can add an additional
four 10 Gigabit Ethernet or SummitStack stacking ports. For
stacking, depending upon the needs for bandwidth across the
units in a stack, Summit X480 supports 40 Gbps SummitStack,
80 Gbps SummitStack-V80 or 128Gbps SummitStack128
through VIM2 option modules (See Figure 2: Summit X480-24x
flexible port configuration). A third option, SummitStack-V,
utilizes 10 GbE ports as stacking ports.
SummitStack-V – Flexible Stacking
Over 10 Gigabit Ethernet
SummitStack-V capability utilizes 10 GbE ports as stacking
ports, enabling the use of standard cabling and optics technologies used for 10 GbE such as XFP, SFP+, 10GBASE-T and
XENPAK. SummitStack-V provides long-distance stacking
connectivity of up to 40 km while reducing the cable complexity
of implementing a stacking solution. SummitStack-V enabled
10 GbE ports must be physically direct-connected.
SummitStack-V is compatible with Summit X450e, X450a,
X460, X480, X650, X670 and X670V switches running the
same version of ExtremeXOS.
Summit X480 supports flexible 10 gigabit optical transceivers
such as 10GBASE-SR, LR, ER and ZR as well as tunable DWDM.
Tunable DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing)
support allows service providers and others to tune XFP 10
Gigabit Ethernet optics to a specific frequency, reducing the
need for additional fiber runs and XFP sparing. Digital
Diagnostics Monitoring Interface support allows service providers to monitor and diagnose pluggable optics in real-time.

Supports Virtualized Data Centers
Summit X480 switches also support Direct Attach™, which
eliminates the virtual switch layer, simplifying the network and
improving performance. Direct Attach enables data center
simplification by reducing network tiers from 4 or 5 tiers to just
3 or 2 tiers, depending on the size of the data center. To further
enhance data center operations, Summit X480 switches
support XNV™ (ExtremeXOS Network Virtualization), a set of
software modules for the ExtremeXOS based switching
product portfolio, and available via the Data Center Feature
Pack for Extreme Networks Ridgeline™, a network and service
management application. XNV brings insight, control and
automation for highly virtualized data centers to the network.

Extreme Networks Data Sheet: Summit X480 Series
High Availability
Powered by the ExtremeXOS OS, Summit X480 supports process recovery and application upgrades without the need
for a system reboot. Summit X480 provides the high network availability required for mission-critical servers and
applications through its advanced modular OS, highly available hardware architecture and carrier-grade network
redundancy protocols.
Modular Operating System for
Continuous Operation
Preemptive Multitasking and Protected
Memory
Summit X480 series switches allow each of many applications—such as Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and Spanning
Tree Protocol (STP)—to run as separate OS processes that are
protected from each other. This drives increased system
integrity and inherently protects against DoS attacks.
Process Monitoring and Restart
ExtremeXOS increases network availability using process
monitoring and restart. Each independent OS process is
monitored in real time. If a process becomes unresponsive or
stops running, it can be automatically restarted.
Loadable Software Modules
The modular design of ExtremeXOS OS allows the upgrading of
individual software modules, should this be necessary, leading
to higher availability in the network (See Figure 7: ExtremeXOS
modular design).
High Availability Network Protocols
Ethernet Automatic Protection Switching
(EAPS)
EAPS allows the IP network to provide the level of resiliency
and uptime that users expect from their traditional voice
network. EAPS is more adaptable than Spanning Tree or Rapid
Spanning Tree Protocols and offers sub-second (less than 50
milliseconds) recovery that delivers consistent failover regardless of the number of VLANs, network nodes or network
topology. Since EAPS allows the network to recover almost
transparently, Voice-over-IP (VoIP) calls will not drop and
digital video feeds will not freeze or pixelize in most situations.
Spanning Tree/Rapid Spanning Tree
Protocols
Software-Enhanced Availability
Software-enhanced availability allows users to remain connected to the network even if part of the network infrastructure
is down. Summit X480 continuously checks for problems in the
uplink connections using advanced Layer 3 protocols such as
OSPF, VRRP and Extreme Standby Router Protocol™ (ESRP,
supported in Layer 2 or Layer 3), and dynamically routes traffic
around the problem.
Equal Cost Multipath
Equal Cost Multipath (ECMP) routing allows uplinks to be load
balanced for performance and cost savings while also supporting redundant failover. If an uplink fails, traffic is automatically
routed to the remaining uplinks and connectivity is maintained.
Link Aggregation (802.3ad)
Link aggregation (LAG) allows trunking of up to eight links on a
single logical connection. A maximum of 128 link aggregation
groups can be created.
Multi-Switch LAG (M-LAG)
M-LAG can address bandwidth limitations and improve
network resiliency, in part by routing network traffic around
bottlenecks, reducing the risks of a single point of failure, and
allowing load balancing across multiple switches.
Voice-Grade Stacking with SummitStack
All SummitStack stacking architecture is designed to support
mission-critical applications by its highly available, rapid
failover capability with n-1 master redundancy, distributed
Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching, link aggregation across the
stack, and distributed uplinks. SummitStack supports up to
eight units in a stack, including any mix of Summit X650, X480,
X460, X450a, X450e and X250e running the same version of
ExtremeXOS and provides 50 milliseconds failover for path
failure and hitless master/backup failover along with hitless
protocol support such as OSPF graceful restart and Network
Login user authentication.
Summit X480 supports Spanning Tree (802.1D), Per VLAN
Spanning Tree (PVST+), Rapid Spanning Tree (802.1w) and
Multiple Instances of Spanning Tree (802.1s) protocols for Layer
2 resiliency.

Extreme Networks Data Sheet: Summit X480 Series
High Availability
Alternatively, you may choose high-speed 80 Gbps stacking,
which is ideal for demanding applications where a high volume
of traffic traverses through the stacking links, yet bandwidth is
not compromised through stacking. SummitStack-V80 also
breaks the distance limitation for stacking technology by using
QSFP+ technology. SummitStack-V80 can support passive
copper cable (up to 5m), active multi-mode fiber cable (up to
100m), and QSFP+ optical transceivers which will be the
standard technology for 40 GbE. With SummitStack-V80, the
Summit X460 provides a flexible stacking solution inside the
data center or central office to create a virtualized switching
infrastructure across rows of racks. SummitStack-V80 is
compatible with Summit X460, X480 and X670V switches
running the same version of ExtremeXOS.
Summit X480 provides chassis-like management and availability
with its SummitStack stacking technology (See Figure 8:
SummitStack stacking architecture).
Hardware Redundancy
Summit X480 supports a dual redundant AC/DC power supply
to provide high availability. The power supply can be hotswapped and replaced should it fail. Summit X480 supports a
hot-swappable, field replaceable fan.

Comprehensive Security Management
Implementing a secure network means providing protection at the network perimeter as well as the core. Summit X480
uses advanced security functions in protecting your network from known or potential threats.
Robust IP and MAC
Security Framework
NetLogin
Network Login provides three types of authentication—Webbased, MAC-based, and 802.1x—to properly authenticate
network users against RADIUS servers. When combined with
Extreme Networks Universal Port Manager (UPM), IT administrators can dynamically provision policies to associated
network users based on roles or UPM profiles.
Media Access Control (MAC) Security
communicate with other ports in the same VLAN over Layer 2
or Layer 3. Private VLAN ports can only communicate with a
designated “uplink” port. In addition, a Private VLAN provides
separation of broadcast domains within the same VLAN.
Threat Detection and Response
CLEAR-Flow Security Rules Engine
CLEAR-Flow provides first order threat detection and mitigation, and mirrors traffic to appliances for further analysis of
suspicious traffic in the network.
MAC security allows the lockdown of a port to a given MAC
address and limiting the number of MAC addresses on a port.
This can be used to dedicate ports to specific hosts or devices
and avoid abuse of the port. In addition, an aging timer can be configured for the MAC lockdown, protecting the network
from the effects of attacks using (often rapidly) changing MAC addresses.
Protocol Anomaly Detection
IP Security
sFlow
ExtremeXOS IP security framework protects the network
infrastructure, network services and host computers from
rogue access, spoofing and man-in-the-middle attacks. It also
protects the network from statically configured and/or spoofed
IP addresses and builds an external trusted database of MAC/IP/port bindings providing the traffic’s source from a
specific address for immediate defense.
Identity Manager
Identity Manager allows network managers to track users who
access their network. User identity is captured based on
NetLogin authentication, LLDP discovery and Kerberos
snooping. ExtremeXOS uses the information to then report on
the MAC, VLAN, computer hostname, and port location of the
user. Further, Identity Manager can create both roles and
policies, and then bind them together to create role-based
profiles based on organizational structure or other logical
groupings, and apply them across multiple users to allow
appropriate access to network resources.
Private VLANs
The Extreme Networks chipsets contain built-in hardware
protocol checkers that support port security features for
security applications, such as stateless DoS protection. The
protocol checkers allow users to drop the packets based on
conditions, which are checked for ingress packets prior to the
Layer 2/Layer 3 entry table.
sFlow® is a sampling technology that provides the ability to
sample application-level traffic flows on all interfaces
simultaneously.
IPFIX
IPFIX (Internet Protocol Flow Information eXport) defines an
Internet standards-track protocol for a follow-on protocol to
the proprietary Netflow. The technology is a complementary
protocol to sFlow. IPFIX gathers information about network
flows through the switch and sends the information to an
external collector. Summit X480 includes hardware support to
keep track of the flow records.
Port Mirroring
Summit X480 supports many-to-one and one-to-many port
mirroring. This allows the mirroring of traffic to an external
network appliance such as an intrusion detection device for
trend analysis or for utilization by a network administrator for
diagnostic purposes. Port mirroring can also be enabled across
switches in a stack.
Private VLANs provide port-to-port security to prevent
unauthorized communication of users within the same VLAN.
Unlike normal VLANs, ports enabled for Private VLANs cannot

Extreme Networks Data Sheet: Summit X480 Series
Comprehensive Security Management
Line-Rate ACLs
ACLs are one of the most powerful components used in
controlling network resource utilization as well as protecting
the network. ACLs are used for filtering the traffic, as well as
classifying the traffic flow to control bandwidth, priority,
mirroring, and policy-based routing/switching.
Denial of Service Protection
Summit X480 effectively handles Denial of Service (DoS)
attacks. If the switch detects an unusually large number of
packets in the CPU input queue, it assembles ACLs that
automatically stop these packets from reaching the CPU. After
a period of time, these ACLs are removed, and reinstalled if the
attack continues.
Extreme Networks has developed tools that simplify and help
in efficiently managing your network. Ridgeline network and
service management provides fault, configuration, accounting,
performance and security functions, allowing more effective
management of Extreme Networks products, solutions and
third-party devices, in a converged network.
For carrier networks, Ridgeline enables the shift from reactive
circuit monitoring to proactive service management. The key
features integrated into the Service Advisor Feature Pack unify
service fulfillment, service assurance and service engineering to
enable carriers to more effectively manage next-generation
residential triple play, business Ethernet and Ethernet mobile
backhaul services.
Secure and Comprehensive Network
Management
Summit X480 supports comprehensive network management
through Command Line Interface (CLI), SNMP v1, v2c, v3, and
ExtremeXOS ScreenPlay™ embedded XML-based Web user
interface. With a variety of management options and consistency across other Extreme Networks modular and stackable
switches, Summit X480 series switches provide ease of
management for demanding converged applications.

Target Applications
Top-of-Rack Switch for Servers in
the Enterprise Data Centers
In the enterprise data center, many servers and
storage systems are packed in racks, with all
systems needing high-speed connectivity. A
top-of-rack architecture is one way to simplify the
cabling infrastructure and minimize the space
requirements in the enterprise data center.
Summit X480 is optimized to support high-density
Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for servers and
other network-attached devices and provides
high-speed 80 Gbps or 128 Gbps stacking
connectivity with the Summit X650 10 Gigabit
Ethernet switch to provide the hybrid deployment
