Summit® X480 Series – the scalable and versatile Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch.
The Summit X480 series switch is a versatile, high-end Ethernet switch for data center, enterprise aggregation, and Carrier Ethernet deployments. Summit X480 helps optimize application performance for a variety of network deployments with its rich features and high scalability.
Summit X480 provides high density for Gigabit Ethernet in a small 1RU form factor for up to 48 ports in one system and 384 ports in a stacked system using backward compatible SummitStack™, high-speed SummitStack128 running at 128 Gigabits per second, SummitStack-V, which utilizes 10GbE ports as stacking ports, enabling the use of standard cabling and optics technologies used for 10GbE, SummitStack V80, V160, or V320 for 80Gbps, 160Gbps, or 320Gbps of stacking bandwidth using standard cabling and optics for 40GbE. Summit X480 also offers 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for up to 18 ports in one system and 80 ports in a stacked system using QSFP+ to SFP+ breakout cables. For emerging demands from voice/data convergence and storage, Summit X480 provides highly scalable Layer 2/3 switching and MPLS/HVPLS by supporting up to 512K Layer 2 MAC addresses or 512K IPv4 Longest Prefix Match routing tables. Summit X480 enables data center, enterprise and Carrier Ethernet aggregation, and core backbone deployment in AC-powered and DC-powered environments. Summit X480 simplifies network operation with the ExtremeXOS® modular OS, available across a wide range of Extreme Networks Ethernet switches. The ExtremeXOS operating system provides high availability and simplicity with one OS everywhere in the network.
