Dell’s advanced 48 port blade switch offering

Dell's advanced 48 port blade switch offering
Advanced Blade Switch
The PowerConnect™ M6348 is one of Dell's most advanced blade switch offerings with advanced core switching capabilities for today’s data center. This 48-port Giga-bit Ethernet Layer 3 switch supports stacking and offers integrated 10 Gigabit Ethernet connection as well as supporting the latest version of the Internet Protocol—IPv6—enabling broader worldwide scalability.
High Performance Stacking
High performance stacking is supported for up to twelve systems, and advanced security and Quality of Service (QoS) features make this switch ideal for applications such as server virtualization, Voice over IP, Layer 3 routing, High Performance Cluster Computing (HPPC), and iSCSI storage.
Advanced Security
Advanced Security: Access Control Lists (ACLs) can be supported on the switch, allowing the user to perform deep packet inspection. 802.1x port authentication offers both single and multiple host access. Further security is provided through Denial of Service (DoS) Attack Prevention, whereby the switch can help protect against common network attacks and CPU attacks.
High Density
High Density: Delivering extreme rack density in a bladed form factor, the PowerConnect M6348 is designed to give users the flexibility to maximize blade server connectivity in a 0U form factor. Up to 192 non-redundant servers and can be connected in a stack of twelve M63xx series blade switches to provide the maximum density, flexibility, and manageability.
Integrated 10 Gigabit Ethernet
Integrated 10 Gigabit Ethernet: The PowerConnect M6348 provides excellent performance for Gigabit Ethernet and additionally provides four integrated ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet. Two SFP+ ports can be used to aggregate and deliver I/O over optical connections at greater distances or to top-of-rack switches over short reach connections. Two CX4 ports are also available as 10GbE connections or can alternatively be used to stack up-to 12 M6348 switches.
Advanced QoS
Advanced QoS: The PowerConnect M6348 offers flexibility in Quality of Service (QoS) by giving network administrators the ability to prioritize time-critical network traffic based on a variety of user-defined criteria. Administrators can expedite traffic based on L2 or L3 information, such as IP QoS, and provide greater control over traffic flow within the network. Voice VLANs are provided specifically for VoIP applications.
IPv6 Certified
IPv6 Certified: IPv6 is version six of the "Internet Protocol" that has been in development for over 20 years. IPv6 has been designed to address IP address limitations of previous version of the Internet Protocol, enabling an increased number of unique IP addresses for broader scalability worldwide now and in the future.
Advanced Layer 3 Capabilities
Advanced Layer 3 Capabilities: The PowerConnect M6348 supports advanced Layer 3 routing and multicast protocols to help reduce congestion and manage traffic in the network. Frequently used LAN routing protocols such as RIPv1/v2, OSPFv2/v3, VRRP, IGMP, DVMRP, PIM and LLDP-MED, are also supported.
