The IntraCore® 35160 Layer 2 family of Gigabit Ethernet switches is Asante’s most powerful, flexible
range of backbone and aggregation switches.
With 16 ports of Gigabit Ethernet offered in two design options, your cost of ownership is reduced
considerably over other vendors switches by using mix and match GBIC/Copper ports.
By using a single-chip state-of-the-art architecture with shared memory, wire speed switching at Layer
2 is achieved on all ports.
Quality of Service
In the simplest sense, Quality of Service (QoS) means providing consistent, predictable data delivery
service. In other words, satisfying customer application throughput requirements including timing,
bandwidth and service prioritization.
QoS is to the ability of a network element (e.g. an application, host or router) to have some level of
assurance that its traffic and service requirements can be satisfied. To enable QoS requires the
cooperation of all network layers from top-to-bottom, as well as every network element from end-toend. Any QoS assurances are only as good as the weakest link in the "chain" between sender and
For network’s that require more than just performance switching, the IntraCore® 35160 has a
comprehensive array of multicasting and Quality of Service tools to provide tailored service levels in
operations that involve Voice, Video, Image and Data traffic.
With future upgrade options that include Classification and filtering based on Layer 2 packets, Layer 3
protocols and Layer 4 protocols (TCP, UDP) and remapping priorities using DiffServ Code Point (DSCP),
traffic flows can be identified and managed by MAC address, VLAN, Port, source and destination
Jumbo Packet Support
Jumbo Packet transmission is a requirement seen largely in Higher Education, Research and Distributed
Scientific computing environments, this commonly involves high level traffic flows of web, video and
database transaction processing between host and client.
Our implementation of Jumbo Packet support allows users to manually configure oversize frames of up
to 16384 bytes to be transmitted. Asanté’s end-to-end Jumbo Packet support includes FriendlyNET®
GigaNIX network cards also.
Low Cost Failure Backup Power Option
New to Asanté is the provision of an optional DC backup power supply to ensure continued operation in
situations of primary power failure. Used with Uninterrupted Power Supplies, Asanté IC 35160 can
ensure high productivity and extremely low downtime on mission critical networks.
The IC35-EPS12 operates at 12VDC and is used in standby mode simultaneously on-line with the 90260VAC primary power system. Should the primary power fail, the IC35-EPS12 automatically goes live 35160 Feb 2003
and both LED indication on the switch hardware and SNMP alarms will be enabled.
Market Applications
This family of switches is ideally positioned for those organizations and businesses that operate web
based, multimedia and high performance networks including, MTU, Higher Education, Scientific
Research, E-Business Enterprise applications (SAP, ERP, CRM, and SCM) in Manufacturing, Retail, and
Public Services including Government and Healthcare where control of latency and jitter along with
traffic management by user and service type is critical.
Use the IC35160 for aggregating multiple workgroups of 10/100 24/48 port switches (IC3524/48),
connecting multiple Gigabit Fiber or copper backbones in the network core or even distributing
bandwidth within the data center to servers.
Single-Chip Layer 2 Switch:
Forwarding rate of 24 million packets per second at full wire speed over all network interfaces in a unit
32 Gbps switch fabric (per unit) minimizes blocking and latency
Runs cooler and more reliably than older, multi-chip designs
Extensible Platform:
Choose from 2 popular Gigabit configurations with auto-selectable switching
- 12 ports 10/100/1000BaseT and 4 dual function ports of GBIC/1000BaseT
- 12 ports GBIC and 4 dual function ports of GBIC/1000BaseT
Run multi-mode or singlemode fiber 1000 Mbps (1000BaseSX/LX/LH/LZ) using GBIC transceivers
Run standard Category 5E UTP copper cables up to 100 meters at 1000 Mbps (1000BaseT)
Class of Service/Qos
Multiple priority queues ensure mission critical applications get the bandwidth and priority they need. IEEE802.1p: 8
queues per port.
Chargeable, upgrade firmware available in first half 2003 will enable Packet classification and filtering based on Layer
2 packets, Layer 3 protocols and Layer 4 traffic types TCP and UDP also remapping of traffic flows using DiffServ and
based on MAC address, VLAN, L2-4.
Multicasting support:
Internet group management protocol (IGMP) optimizes multicast bandwidth by allowing multicast traffic only to
registered users; minimizes denial of service attacks from unknown sources.
256 multicast groups are supported.
Manual population of the multicast table is available, static entries in the multicast table are saved to FLASH.
Virtual LANs:
Logically organize nodes into 1024 port based VLANs compliant with IEEE 802.1Q with VLAN Tagging
Overlapping VLANs are ideal for sharing and segmenting traffic and security.
