Dell Networking 7000 Gigabit Ethernet switches are Layer 3 scalable enterprise switches that give you the power and flexibility you need for today and the future, offering advanced switching capabilities including high-density, 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks, high-performance stacking, high redundancy and availability, scalable from the small business to the campus Edge.

The PowerConnect 7000 series switches are designed to offer secure, fi xed-port Gigabit Ethernet switching solutions which deliver full wire-speed switching performance. With 24 or 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a 1U form factor, the PowerConnect 7000 series has a total switching capacity of up to 224 Gbps to support demanding network environments. The switches also offer simple management and scalability via a 128Gbps (via two stacking modules) high-availability stacking architecture that allows you to manage up to twelve switches from a single IP address, and share the upgradeable 10GbE ports across the stack for uplinks to the next layer in your network. The switches are designed with power-saving features including Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) ports to help reduce per port power consumption while decrease cooling and power costs. Select models offer 24 & 48 ports of PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at), support for high- power WLAN Access Points (WAPs), Voice over IP (VoIP) handsets, video conferencing and security cameras up to 30.8 watts of power.

High-performance and high availability for small cores and enterprise

The PowerConnect 7000 Ethernet Switch family is designed for enterprise applications where high performance, high availability, and energy efficiency are key requirements. Operating at wire speed, the 7000 switches deliver up to 160 Mpps throughput and a data rate of up to 224 Gbps (full duplex) for both Layer 2 and Layer 3 environments.

Switch stacks up to 600 ports can be managed from a single screen using the highly-available (HA) stacking architecture, for high density aggregation with seamless redundant availability and single IP management of an entire rack. Fast stack failover enables sub-50ms failover scenarios. The 7000 family can also stack with the Dell M6348 high density Ethernet blade. The 7048R modelenables a resilient HA core switch design with redundant internal power supplies and fans, reversible airfl ow (back-to-ports and ports-to-back model options) and dual fi rmware image support.

The switches also support rapid USB auto-configuration so you can rapidly deploy the switches in minutes without setting up complex TFTP configurations or sending technical staff to remote offices.

Robust security

Advanced security features of PowerConnect 7000 series switches help protect the network from accidental or malicious interference. Edge authentication using IEEE 802.1x provides a meaningful security solution which is centralized and easier to manage than standard ACLs, and the monitor mode of the switch allows for easier rollout of 802.1x in new environments. The PowerConnect 7000 series provides password management for increased network security, encrypted management traffic through SSL or SSH and secures SNMP access by fi ltering hosts based upon IP address. MAC-based port security is designed to prevent unauthorized MAC addresses from accessing the network. RADIUS and TACACS+ support enables centralized, remote authentication of administrative access to the switch. Private VLANs and administrative profi les are also supported.
