Dell PowerConnect 8024F - 10Gb Performance and Flexibility

10 Gb Performance and Flexibility

The PowerConnect 8024 brings the benefits of 10Gb Ethernet to a compact and reliable switching platform, with the quality and great service of Dell. 10Gb Ethernet provides a superior return on IT investment through:
  • Investment Protection – 10Gb Ethernet is the network fabric of the future, with an ever-expanding ecosystem of solutions and the capabilities to grow
  • Energy-Efficient – Replace multiple 1Gb components in your infrastructure to reduce power requirements and heat loads.
  • High Performance – 480Gb of throughput for wire-speed 10Gb switching
Dell PowerConnect 8024F - Energy Efficient

Energy Efficient

The PowerConnect 8024 family is designed to be easy on the budget as well as the environment. Dell designed the PowerConnect 8024 for energy savings from the power cord to the ports — starting with redundant power supplies that operate above 80 percent efficiency in all modes.

We then added variable speed fans that adjust their speed for their environment through multiple temperature monitors. We also included power efficient 10 GBASE-T ports that reduce power draw by as much as 20 percent for short cable runs, and then provided network administrators with multiple ways to manage and monitor these power savings features through:
  • Command-line interface (CLI)
  • Web browser-based graphical user interface (GUI)
  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
Dell PowerConnect 8024F - High Availability

High Availability

The PowerConnect 8024F is designed to be highly available with dual internal, hot-swap power supplies and removable hot-swap fan modules. The unit also incorporates dual firmware images to allow for image promotions or image redundancy in a network. All of these functions can be monitored through CLI, GUI and SNMP.
Dell PowerConnect 8024F - Flexible Management

Flexible Management

PowerConnect switches provide numerous management options including an industry-standard CLI, remote management using the embedded Web server, and support for SNMP-based management applications such as Open Manage Network Manager.

The GUI for PowerConnect switches provides very robust management with comparable control to the command-line environment — allowing the administrator to choose the best method of interacting with the switch.
