Allied Telesis Announces Enhancements to the SwitchBlade x8100 Series Products

Allied Telesis, a global provider of secure IP/Ethernet switching solutions, announces enhancements to the SwitchBlade x8100 series products. As part of its ongoing commitment to innovation, Allied Telesis has announced a series of enhancements to both the hardware and operating system features of the SwitchBlade x8100 series

The SwitchBlade x8106 chassis

Although a number of customers are interested in a large chassis-based switch, many mid-sized enterprise organisations are looking for the benefits of a chassis-based switch - such as performance and resilience - in a compact chassis.  To meet these needs, Allied Telesis will release the SwitchBlade x8106 chassis. This product delivers all the features and benefits of the SwitchBlade x8112, in a compact 4RU 6-slot chassis.

The CFC960 control module

Organisations such as schools, universities, hospitals and large government customers, need solutions that deliver performance, density and a large total port count.  To meet these requirements, Allied Telesis has released the CFC960 control module, which is capable of delivering a total of 1.92Tbps and supporting 160 10GbE ports in a single 7RU chassis.  Along with exceptional high performance, the CFC960 also supports Allied Telesis Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack). This enables two SwitchBlade x8100 chassis to operate and be managed as a single entity, delivering complete redundancy to large scale network environments.
