Mission Critical, wire-speed, Unified Fabric switch for virtualized data centers
Help simplify your infrastructure and improve operational efficiency with the Dell PowerConnect B-MLXe8 enterprise router:
Massive scalability, non-blocking performance in a flexible chassis design enables converged data and storage networks including iSCSI and FCoE SANs in next-generation virtualized data centers.
Built with a state-of-the-art architecture and terabit-scale switch fabrics, the PowerConnect B-MLXe8 provides wire-speed performance with up to 64 10GbE links or 384 GbE ports in a single system.
Scalability and high availability for mission-critical applications
Designed to help support your mission-critical applications, PowerConnect B-MLXe8 offers advanced routing features:
Multi-Chassis Trunking (MCT) technology, which helps deliver full utilization of all links for network operation and instantaneous link or node failover.
Fully redundant hardware components, along with hitless failover and in-service software upgrades, can help ensure continuous network operation.
Energy conscious operations
Consumes less energy per port while significantly increasing throughput driving down power and cooling costs.
Outstanding performance for a broad range of applications
With up to 2.4Bpps routing and up to 3.84Tbps fabric capacity, the PowerConnect B-MLXe8 enables advanced network features, such as:
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)
VPLS based data center connectivity
With capacity up to 384 GbE ports at full wire speed, the router collapses network access and aggregation layers, which can simplify network configuration and management and can help lower costs.
In addition, the Dell PowerConnect B-MLXe8 router is Data Center Bridging-ready (DCB) helping support converged storage and data deployments with the same level of performance delivered by separate storage and data networks.
