Virtualized core switching and routing

The Dell Networking E-Series delivers the high density required for virtualized data centers and cloud networks with two key models:
  • E600i is a 16RU chassis featuring up to 7 blade I/O slots coupled with a backplane driving up to 1.75 Tbps bandwidth
  • E1200i is a 24RU chassis featuring up to 14 blade I/O slots coupled with a backplane driving up to 3.5 Tbps bandwidth

Enable a new way of designing switching and routing infrastructures with Dell Networking E1200i platforms. The E1200i architecture, patented backplane and ASIC technology are designed to increase network availability, agility and efficiency while reducing power and cooling costs. The E1200i supports mission-critical applications across converged fabrics in data center, telecommunication provider, service provider, enterprise and HPCC networks. Dell Networking’s E1200i platform coupled with FTOS makes a cost-effective and flexible deployment option complete with comprehensive management, automation and resource provisioning capabilities.

Dell Networking's Virtualized Network Fabric Framework

  • VirtualView™ is a suite of monitoring and provisioning features that optimizes the performance of virtualized and distributed networks
  • VirtualScale™ reduces TCO by consolidating the physical network and virtualizing boundaries
  • VirtualControl™ manages, controls and secures multiple switching and routing domains on one physical platform

Total cost of ownership (TCO)

  • Lower TCO through true non-blocking, line-rate throughput that removes performance bottlenecks from the network — all packet sizes, all the time
  • High-density fabrics enable simpler network topologies that reduce both network capital and operational costs
    • Up to 100 Gbps of data capacity per slot today (125 Gbps/slot raw capacity)
    • Up to 560 total 10GbE ports in one half-rack chassis using the high density 40-port line card
    • Switching fabric capacity of up to 3.5 Tbps, and packet forwarding capacity of more than 2 Bpps using hardware based distributed forwarding engines
    • Low power per line-rate port consumption with an eco-efficient power and cooling design that saves energy
  • Scale for tomorrow’s network with converged fabric
    • IPv4 unicast and multicast routing for advanced services networks
    • IPv6-ready for native and dual-stack next-generation IP networks
    • 100 Gbps/slot data capacity
    • Predictable and consistent latency at all frame sizes with high touch features enabled


  • Tunable, scalable high-capacity LAG with 64 links per group and 32 LAGs per system or 8 links per group and 255 LAGs per system uses advanced hashing algorithms to balance traffic evenly across links in backbone or aggregation applications
  • Buffering and virtual-output queues eliminate head-of-line blocking and minimize queuing delay to guarantee packet delivery
  • Configurable CAM profiles enable custom space allocation in hardware forwarding and classification tables to support flexibility and scalability as network requirements change

High availability, serviceability and manageability

  • Dell FTOS software, built on NetBSD and a Unix®-like kernel and running on the route processor modules (RPM) and line cards, enables new advances in control-plane scalability and system reliability
  • High performance RPM uses distributed control-plane processing on three CPUs and provides 1+1 control-plane redundancy with hitless forwarding
  • Redundant switch fabric modules (SFM) with graceful and deterministic failure recovery
  • High-availability hardware and software architecture with OIR (hot swap) of all components
  • Patented passive copper backplane
  • Power and cooling redundancy
