Sorry, this product is no longer available, please contact us for a replacement.



High-density, 40GbE switch (32 ports of 40GbE or 96 ports of 10GbE1 and eight ports of 40GbE) with high performance for top-, middle- and end-of- rack deployments.

The Dell Networking S6000-ON switch is the industry's first disaggregated hardware + software data center networking solution that empowers organizations to deploy modern workloads and applications designed for the open networking era.

Organizations that benefited from utilizing the disaggregation model with their data center server platforms can now leverage even greater benefits from Dell open networking solutions. Organizations can take advantage of this disaggregated networking model using industry-leading hardware and a choice of leading network operating systems to simplify data center fabric orchestration and automation and accelerate innovation.

These new offerings provide organizations the flexibility to transform their data centers and offer high-capacity network fabrics that are easy to deploy, cost-effective and provide a clear path to a software-defined data center.

The Dell S6000-ON supports the open source Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) for zero-touch installation of alternate network operating systems.

Data center optimized

The Dell Networking S Series S6000-ON 10/40GbE top-of-rack (ToR) switch is purpose-built for applications in high-performance data center and computing environments. Leveraging a non-blocking switching architecture, the S6000-ON delivers line-rate L2 and L3 forwarding capacity to maximize network performance. The compact S6000-ON design provides industry-leading density of 32 ports of 40GbE or 96 ports of 10GbE1 and eight additional ports of 40GbE to conserve rack space while enabling denser footprints and simplifying migration to 40Gbps in the data center core. In addition, the S6000-ON incorporates multiple architectural features that optimize data center network flexibility, efficiency and availability, including redundant, hot-swappable power supplies and fans.

Key Applications
