Redundancy features, such as hot-swappable power
supplies, redundant fan trays, and switch stacking
maximize the availability of your network.
Data Center functionality available through Data
Center Bridging (DCB) enhances network
performance and reliability.
Industry-standard management tools allow the
switch to be easily administered, integrating
seamlessly with existing devices.
High Availability and Flexibility
The DXS-3400 Series switches feature a modular fan and power supply design for a high
availability architecture. The hot-swappable design means that fans and power supplies can
be replaced without affecting switch operation. Physical and virtual switch stacking allow
the switches to be managed from a single IP address and provide redundancy for connected
devices. The Switch Resource Management (SRM) feature allows the hardware table size to
be changed, so that switch functions can be optimized based on the use of the switch. The
DXS-3400 Series switches come with 3 modes; IP Mode, LAN Mode and L2 VPN Mode, which
modify the size of the Layer 2 and 3 tables for optimum efficiency.
Feature Rich Software
The DXS-3400 Series switches include feature rich software which satisfies the needs of
Small Medium Business, Small Medium Enterprise, and campus users. It supports a wide
range of Layer 2 and 3 functions such as VLANs, inter-VLAN routing, multicasting, Quality of
Service (QoS), Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP), Routing Information Protocol (RIP)
v1/2, Next Generation RIP (RIPng), Policy-Based Routing (PBR), and security features. The
DXS-3400 Series also includes an easy-to-use web interface and an industry standard CLI for
The DXS-3400 Series switches feature front-to-back airflow which facilitates
the building of energy-efficient data centers. The front-to-back airflow
optimizes air circulation inside the rack, allowing hot and cold isles in data
centers, increasing energy efficiency in comparison to a mix of front-toback
and side-to-side airflow. The switches also feature in-built smart fans;
internal heat sensors monitor and detect temperature changes, and react
accordingly by utilizing different fan speeds for different temperatures.
At lower temperatures, the fans will run more slowly, reducing the switch’s
power consumption and noise.
Data Center Bridging (DCB) is an essential set of enhancements to Ethernet
for networking in data center environments. The DXS-3400 Series switches
support several core components of Data Center Bridging (DCB) such as IEEE
802.1Qbb, IEEE 802.1Qaz, and IEEE 802.1Qau. IEEE 802.1Qbb (Priority-based
Flow Control) provides flow control on specific priority to ensure there is no
data loss during network congestion. IEEE 802.1Qaz (Enhanced Transmission
Selection) manages the allocation of bandwidth amongst different traffic
classes. IEEE 802.1Qau (Congestion Notification) provides congestion
management for data flows within network domains to avoid congestion.
