Dell™ combines flexible modularity with 10 Gb Ethernet in the innovative design of the Dell PowerConnect™ M8024 switch.

  • 24 ports of 10 Gb Ethernet
  • Ideal for I/O (input/output) intensive environments
  • Built upon FlexIO architecture

10 Gigabit Ethernet

Each PowerConnect M8024 switch provides 24 10-GbE ports to the Dell PowerEdge™ M1000e blade chassis. This valuable capability delivers 10 GbE to each of the up to 16 server blades. The enhanced bandwidth and performance more than satisfies the increasingly important requirements of servers embracing technologies like virtualization.

Extreme Flexibility

In addition to the 16 internal 10 GbE ports, the M8024 delivers flexible external I/O connectivity choices, utilizing up to two modular 10 Gb Base-T, CX-4 and/or small form-factor pluggable + (SFP+) uplinks. Each SFP+ module provides four 10 GbE ports. When using two SFP+ modules, a total of eight external 10GbE ports are provided. Each CX-4 module provides three 10 GbE ports. Two CX-4 modules yield a total of six external 10 GbE ports. Two 10 Gb Base-T modules provide four 10 GbE ports. For even more flexibility, the M8024 supports mixed environments using combinations of SFP+, 10 Gb Base-T and CX-4 modules.

High Density

The PowerConnect M8024 is designed for the Dell PowerEdge M1000e chassis and extends significant bladed benefits, including:

  • Optimized data center space utilization
  • Reduced cabling and related components
  • Shared power and cooling infrastructure
  • Overall lower total cost of ownership (TCO)
