ExtremeSwitching Switches

The ExtremeSwitching and Summit switches are compact enclosures 1.75 inches high (1 U). Each switch model provides high-density copper or fiber optic ports operating at speeds up to 100 Gbps. On some models, these ports can be partitioned into data lanes through the use of split cables, effectively increasing the port count. Many models also provide combination copper/fiber uplink ports. PoE connections and options for adding faster uplink connections are available on some models.

Many ExtremeSwitching and Summit switches include high-speed stacking interfaces that allow you to connect up to eight switches into a single SummitStack management entity. Models are available for AC or DC power connection; all switches make provision for redundant power supplies. Most models have connections for optional external redundant power supplies: the X450-G2 (PoE models), X460-G2, X620 (16-port models), X670-G2, and X770 switches provide two bays for pluggable power supplies.

This document describes switches that are supported on ExtremeXOS version 21.1 or later versions. For information about other Summit series switches, refer to the ExtremeSwitching and Summit Switches: Hardware Installation Guide for Switches Using ExtremeXOS 16 or Earlier.
