Summit X670 Series Switches

The Summit X670 series switches have 48 front-panel Ethernet ports that can provide 10-gigabit Ethernet connectivity using copper ports or installable SFP+ optical modules.

The Summit X670 series switches have 48 front-panel Ethernet ports that provide 10-gigabit Ethernet connectivity using installable SFP+ optical modules. The Summit X670 series switches include the following base models:

The minimum required ExtremeXOS version for Summit X670 series switches varies by model. (See the Extreme Hardware/Software Compatibility and Recommendation Matrices for details.) The ExtremeXOS version cannot be greater than 16.x.

Each base model is available with either front-to-back or back-to-front cooling. There is no operational difference between these switch versions.

The Summit X670-48x and Summit 670V-48x have SFP+ ports support dual interface speeds of Gigabit Ethernet and 10-Gigabit Ethernet. SFP+ ports can accept both gigabit SFP and 10 gigabit SFP, and depending upon the pluggable optics you choose, SFP+ modules can work in both modes.

The Summit X670V-48t has 10G BASE-T copper ports. The switch also has fiber combination ports that support dual interface speeds of Gigabit Ethernet and 10-Gigabit Ethernet.

A serial console port on the front panel of the Summit X670 series switch allows you to connect a terminal and perform local management. An Ethernet management port can be used to connect the system to a parallel management network for administration. Alternatively, you can use an Ethernet cable to connect this port directly to a laptop to view and locally manage the switch configuration. The Ethernet management port supports 10/100/1000 Mbps speeds.

The X670-48x and X670V-48x models are equipped with a motion sensor. A motion sensor on the front of the switch allows you to control the power to the port LEDs. When the motion sensor is enabled, the port LEDs are turned off if motion is not detected during a specified amount of time. When motion is detected, the port LEDs are turned back on. You can adjust how long the LEDs stay lit after motion is detected. When the motion sensor is disabled, the port LEDs are always on.

Note

Note

The X670V-48t switch does not have a motion sensor.
The rear panel of the Summit X670V-48t and the X670V-48x switches provides a slot for an option card called a versatile interface module or VIM. The VIM4-40G4X (Part No. 17122) module adds four QSFP+-based 40-Gbps ports to the Summit X670V series switches.
Note

Note

Only VIM4 modules are compatible with the Summit X670 series switches. Other VIM types that may appear to be mechanically compatible with the Summit X670 series switches will not function if they are installed in these switches.

Switch cooling is provided by three replaceable fan modules. Fan modules are available in two different models that direct the airflow either from front to back or from back to front. All five installed fan modules must be of the same model, so that they all direct the airflow in the same direction.

Note

Note

Ensure that all fan module slots are filled when the switch is powered on. Fan modules can be hot-swapped after power has been turned on.
Two power supply bays accommodate either AC or DC power supplies. Power supplies have integrated cooling fans that operate independently of the switch fans. Like the fan modules, the power supplies are available in models with either front-to-back or back-to-front cooling airflow.
Note

Note

Air must flow in the same direction for all installed fan modules and power supplies in a switch.
