High performance open networking 1GbE and 10GbE switch for modern workloads at the network edge

The Dell PowerSwitch E3224F-ON offers power-efficient and resilient 1GbE and 10GbE switching solution for advanced Layer 3 distribution for offices and campus networks. The switch has high-performance capabilities and wire-speed performance utilizing a non-blocking architecture to easily handle unexpected traffic loads. Use dual internal hot-swappable 80PLUS Platinum certified power supplies for high availability and power efficiency. The switch offers simple management and scalability.

Modernize edge networking

Modernize your network edge with a power-efficient and resilient 1 and 10GbE switching solution.

Achieve high availability and full bandwidth utilization with Multichassis Link Aggregation (MLAG)*. E3224F-ON supports MLAG to create active/active loopfree redundancy without spanning tree. Server rooms can deliver reliable server and storage connectivity with features to help save time and avoid configuration errors. E3224F-ON supports VRF-lite*, allowing it to be partitioned into multiple virtual routers with isolated control and data planes on the same physical switch. For greater interoperability in multivendor networks, E3224F-ON offers the latest open-standard protocols.

Leverage familiar tools and practices

E3224F-ON supports Dell SmartFabric OS10, designed for easier deployment, greater interoperability and a lower learning curve for network administrators. E3224F-ON also supports the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE), enabling installation of alternate network operating systems.

Deploy with confidence at any scale

E3224F-ON helps create performance assurance with a data rate up to 528Gbps (full duplex) and a forwarding rate up to 733Mpps. Uplink easily with built-in rear high capacity ports.

Note: * Network operating system specific.


Hardware, performance and efficiency

  • 1RU switch with 24 line-rate 1GbE ports of copper or fiber, and four integrated 10GbE SFP+ports.
  • 400Gbps bandwidth using two 100GbE QSFP28 integrated rear ports.
  • Available with dual 80PLUS Platinum certified hot swappable internal power supplies.
  • Variable speed fan operation helps decrease cooling and power costs.
  • Energy-Efficient Ethernet and lower power PHYs reduce power to inactive ports and idle links, providing energy savings from the power cord to the port.
  • Dell Fresh Air compliance for operation in environments up to 113°F (45°C) reduces cooling costs

Deploying, configuring and managing*

  • USB auto-configuration rapidly deploys the switch without complex TFTP configurations or sending technical staff to remote offices.
  • Management via an intuitive and familiar CLI, embedded web server (GUI), SNMP-based management console application (including Dell OpenManage Network Manager), Telnet or serial connection.
  • Private VLAN extensions and Private VLAN Edge support.
  • AAA authorization, TACACS+ accounting and RADIUS support for comprehensive secure access support.
  • Authentication tiering allows network administrators to tier port authentication methods such as 802.1x, MAC Authentication Bypass and Captive Portal in priority order so that a single port can provide flexible access and security.
  • Achieve high availability and full bandwidth utilization with MLAG and support firmware upgrades without taking the network offline.
  • Layer 3 Advanced IPv4 and IPv6 functionality including BGP, VRF, BFD, PIM-SM/DM/SSM, IGMP/MLD, RIPv1/v2, OSPFv2/v3
  • VXLAN support in hardware only

Note: * Network operating system specific.
