N-Series is a family of energy-efficient and cost-effective 1GbE and 10GbE switches designed for modernizing and scaling network infrastructure. The N4000 Series allows you to apply 10/40GbE wire-speed flexibility to your existing campus network with high-performance, non-blocking switches that:
• Use MLAG for multipath loop-free redundancy without spanning tree to enable full-bandwidth utilization and high availability
• Promote greater interoperability through interfaces with Cisco's Rapid Per VLAN Spanning Tree (RPVST+)1 and devices using Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP)
• Offer a more flexible choice in your network by uniting products with the latest open standard protocols
• Feature advanced IPv4 and IPv6 Layer 3 routing, security and scalability features
• Converged network support for DCB with Priority Flow Control (802.1Qbb), ETS (802.1Qaz), DCBx, iSCSI TLV Support.
• Plug-and-play configuration with Dell EqualLogic iSCSI storage arrays with one-command iSCSI setup that alleviates multiple-step configuration and potential configuration errors
•Include OpenFlow 1.3 support for interoperability with industry-standard OpenFlow controllers.
Built to help keep operating costs down, the N4000 Series has Fresh Air capability, enabling them to operate at temperatures up to 113°F (45°C) to help reduce cooling costs. Features designed to improve overall efficiency include:
The Dell Networking N4000 Series is designed for easy deployment, outstanding interoperability and a low learning curve for network administrators.
