Software Defined Networking (SDN)


SDN provides maximum flexibility and dynamic resource allocation for the most demanding virtualization applications. These switches are ideal for deployment in hyperscale Data Center, Cloud and Enterprise environments.

Advanced SDN Switch offering 10/40 Gigabit Ethernet Performance in 1U Top-of-Rack Solution
SSE-X3848S Layer 2/3 Ethernet Switch both offer forty-eight 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports allowing data center friendly connectivity to 10GE routers, servers, backbones. They also offer four ports running at 40Gbps for access to high-speed backbone networks or storage servers. The 1U form factor gives users the ability to optimize deployment in standalone or top-of-rack environments. An optional rail kit facilitates rack-mounting installations.
