Summit® X460 and X460-G2 series – the scalable advanced aggregation and edge switches with the revolutionary modular operating system, ExtremeXOS®.
The Summit X460 and X460-G2 series are based on Extreme Networks® revolutionary ExtremeXOS, a highly resilient OS that provides continuous uptime, manageability, and operational efficiency. Each switch offers the same high-performance, non-blocking hardware technology, in the Extreme Networks tradition of simplifying network deployments through the use of common hardware and software throughout the network.
The Summit X460 and X460-G2 switches are effective campus-edge switches with IEEE 802.3at PoE-plus and can also serve as aggregation switches for traditional enterprise networks. The Summit X460 series is also an option for DSLAM or CMTS aggregation, or for active Ethernet access.
The Summit X460 and X460-G2 can also be used as a top-of-rack switch for many data center environments with features such as high-density Gigabit Ethernet for concentrated data center environments; XNV™ (ExtremeXOS Network Virtualization) for centralized network-based Virtual Machine (VM) inventory, VM location history, and VM provisioning; Direct Attach™ to offload VM switching from servers, thereby improving performance; high-capacity Layer 2/Layer 3 scalability for highly virtualized data centers; and intra-rack and cross-rack stacking with industry-leading flexibility.
The Summit X460-G2 offers additional features not available in the X460; namely:
- 40Gb Ethernet uplink option
- Back-to-front as well as front-to-back cooling options
- More than double the PoE+ power
- Four built-in front-panel SFP+ ports on 10GbE uplink models
- Optional 1588 Precision Timing Protocol support
- Optional Synchronous Ethernet support on copper as well as optical switches
