The Summit® X670 series switches are versatile, purpose-built top-of-rack and aggregation switches designed to support emerging 10 Gigabit Ethernet enabled servers in enterprise and cloud data centers.
The Summit X670 product family provides high density 10 Gigabit Ethernet and 40 Gigabit Ethernet switching in a small 1RU form factor. With its versatile design, the Summit X670 series provides high density Layer 2/3 10Gb networking with low latency cut-through switching, and IPv4 and IPv6 unicast and multicast routing to enable enterprise aggregation and core backbone deployment in AC-powered and DC-powered environments.
The Summit X670 series simplifies network operation with the ExtremeXOS® modular operating system (OS), which is used among all Extreme Networks Summit and BlackDiamond Ethernet switches. The high availability ExtremeXOS operating system provides simplicity and ease of operation through the use of one OS everywhere in the network.
The Summit X670 series is available in five models:
The Summit X670-G2-48x-4q supports four QSFP+ ports of 40 GbE. Each 40 Gigabit Ethernet port can be independently configured as 40 Gigabit Ethernet or 4 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
The X670-G2-72x supports an industry-leading 72 ports of native 1Gb/10Gb SFP+ ports in a single compact 1RU system without the requirement to use break-out cables to achieve high density 10Gb connections.
The Summit X670V-48t model offers 48-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet non-blocking switching with 10GBASE-T interfaces. With the optional VIM4-40G4X module, Summit X670V-48t can also support up to 4 ports of 40 Gigabit Ethernet in a 1RU form.
The Summit X670-48x provides up to 48 SFP+ ports in one system.
The Summit X670V-48x provides high density for 10 Gigabit Ethernet switching in a small 1RU form factor. The switch supports up to 48 SFP+ ports in one system. With the optional VIM4-40G4X module, Summit X670V can also support up to 64 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet in a 1RU form factor and is capable of Layer 2 and Layer 3 forwarding at up to 960 million packets per second forwarding rate.
The Summit X670 series can serve as a:
Top-of-rack switch for servers in enterprise and cloud data centers
High-performance 10GbE core switch for a small network
High-performance 10GbE aggregation switch in a traditional three-tiered network
Interconnect switch providing low-latency connections for High-Performance Cluster Computing (HPCC)
