10G Switching for SMB: Extreme Summit Switch X620 Series

Often in parts of the network of organizations where there is no need for a high density of ports, the cost of installing and operating super-productive equipment is not economically feasible. In such cases, the Extreme Networks Summit X620 series switches for medium and small market segments with low latency and stacking capabilities might be the best choice.

This line of switches is perfect for installing medium and large operators on traffic aggregation nodes, as well as in data centers for connecting servers or aggregating intranet resources. Using AC or DC power makes it easy to integrate the Summit X620 into an existing infrastructure without changing the existing power scheme. The solutions have a sufficiently large range of port speed of 100 Mbps, as well as 1 and 10 Gbit / s (both copper and optical options). That allows you to connect devices that do not have the ability to work at high speeds to the switches. It is also worth noting the Summit X620 cooling system, which is capable of operating in Front to Back and Back to Front modes, depending on the type of FAN module selected.

Supported Technologies

Extreme Summit X620, like other Extreme Networks switch models, runs on the ExtremeXOS modular operating system. Due to its architecture, this OS has high availability and extensibility, increasing the efficiency of network equipment when transmitting multimedia content and when working with critical business applications.

The switches of the Summit X620 line are represented by models from 8 to 16 ports in various combinations, support 16 thousand MAC addresses and are characterized by a low switching delay - less than 600 nanoseconds.

The Summit X620 family implements simplified management and policies based on users or devices. The switches support hardware-based ACLs for IPv4 / IPv6. They determine who can access these or those resources, and what kind of operations are allowed or, conversely, it is forbidden to make them.

It is worth noting that the switches support a number of technologies - the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) dynamic routing protocol, Provider Bridges (PB, IEEE 802.1ad), AVB, OpenFlow, as well as the IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol for synchronizing time over the network.

Model Features

The new Summit X620 series of switches is presented by four models - Summit X620-16x, Summit X620-10x, Summit X620-16T and Summit X620-8T-2x. The main difference between the devices is the number and type of ports - this is indicated by the indices in the model name.

Summit X620-16x has 16 10GBASE-X SFP + ports, two slots for various power supplies (AC / DC) and one for fan units. The total bandwidth of the switching matrix is ​​320 Gb / s. A feature is backward port compatibility - 100Mb / 1Gb / 10GBASE-X SFP +.

Two other switches in the line, Summit X620-10x and Summit X620-8T-2x, are equipped with a matrix with a throughput of 200 Gb / s. The first has 10 ports 10GBASE-X SFP +, on board the second - 8 ports 10GBASE-T + 2 combo ports 10GBASE-T / SFP + Both options have integrated power supplies and fans.
