Force10 Networks, Inc. has released 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40 GbE) offerings the company says increases performance, while delivering network simplicity to converged data centres.
For the data centre edge, the company launched the S-Series S4810 10/40 GbE top-of-rack (ToR) switch and the 40 GbE line card for its ExaScale virtualized core switch/router for the network core.
The S4810 10/40 GbE ToR switch is built for applications in data centre and computing environments that require the highest bandwidth and lowest latency.
Leveraging a non-blocking, cut-through switching architecture, the S4810 delivers line-rate Layer 2 and Layer 3 forwarding capacity with low latency to maximize network performance, the company said.
The S4810 design provides 48 dual-speed 1/10 GbE ports as well as four 40 GbE uplinks to conserve rack space.
