Non-blocking, line-rate switching and routing; stackable 48-port GbE switch with up to four 10 GbE ports in just 1RU; ultra-deep packet buffering; integrated network automation and virtualization technology with Dell Networking’s Open Automation Framework; flexible, resilient and energy-efficient design.

S-Series S60 high-performance access switch

The Dell Networking S-Series S60 is a high-performance 1/10 GbE access switch optimized for lowering operational costs at the network edge. The S60 answers the key challenges related to network congestion in data center ToR (Top-of-Rack) and service provider aggregation deployments. As the use of bursty applications and services continue to increase, huge spikes in network traffic that can cause network congestion and packet loss, also become more common. The S60 is equipped with the industry’s largest packet buffer (1.25 GB), enabling it to deliver lower application latency and maintain predictable network performance even when faced with significant spikes in network traffic. Providing 48 line-rate GbE ports and up to four optional 10 GbE uplinks in just 1-RU, the S60 conserves valuable rack space. Further, the S60 design delivers unmatched configuration flexibility, high reliability, and power and cooling efficiency to reduce costs.

In addition to delivering a compact and scalable design, the S60 also supports the Dell Networking Open Automation Framework, which provides advanced network automation and virtualization capabilities for virtual data center environments. The Open Automation Framework is comprised of a suite of inter-related network management tools that can be used together or independently to provide a network that is more flexible, available and manageable while reducing operational expenses.


  • Line-rate 1/10 GbE server aggregation at the ToR in high-performance data center environments
  • Design with the E-Series virtualized switch/router to create a flat, two-tier, non-blocking 1/10 GbE data center network design
  • High-performance GbE aggregation, switching and routing in service provider edge or access networks
