Force10 ExaScale 40-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Line Card With SFP and SFP
The 40-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet line card for the Force10 ExaScale virtualized core switch/router provides support for up to 560 10 GbE ports in a single half-rack E1200 chassis. This industry-leading density enables the ExaScale switch/router to aggregate more 10 GbE devices per card, ultimately leaving more chassis space available for future growth while also allowing IT architects to reduce the complexity of the network.
Designed in-house using proven experience in high performance hardware and software design, ExaScale uses patented backplane technology and advanced packet processing and switching ASICs to power the E-Series switch/routers with industry-leading density, performance, reliability and eco-efficiency.
