Modernize your network

N-Series is a family of energy-efficient and cost-effective 1GbE and 10GbE switches designed for modernizing and scaling network infrastructure. The Dell Networking N3000 Series offers high-availability GbE switches for Layer 3 access or aggregation, providing easy-to-manage solutions 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+)* and devices using Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP)
  • Offer a more flexible choice in your network by uniting products with the latest open standard protocols
  • Include advanced IPv4 and IPv6 Layer 3 routing, security and scalability features
  • Plug-and-play configuration with Dell EqualLogic iSCSI storage arrays with one-command iSCSI setup that alleviates multiple-step configuration and potential configuration errors
Networking Switches N3000 Series - Modernize your network
Deliver clean power to network devices with PoE+ support

The Dell Networking N3000 Series has options for up to 48 ports of Power-over-Ethernet Plus (PoE+) without an external power supply. This allows you to attach devices with high power requirements (up to 30.8 watts) without running a separate power cable. PoE+ is particularly useful in older buildings where installing power to multiple, widespread locations can be prohibitively expensive.
Networking Switches N3000 Series - Designed for efficiency
Designed for efficiency

Built to help keep operating costs down, the N3000 Series can operate at temperatures up to 113°F (45°C) to help reduce cooling costs. Features designed to improve overall efficiency include:
  • Hot-swappable 80PLUS-certified efficient power supply with dual power supplies option
  • Enough power capacity to provide up to 48 ports of PoE+ (up to 30.8 watts) in a 1U footprint
  • Redundant variable-speed cooling fans
  • Energy-Efficient Ethernet and low-power PHYs to help reduce power to inactive ports and idle links
Networking Switches N3000 Series - Advanced feature set to simplify management
Advanced feature set to simplify management

The Dell Networking N3000 Series is designed for easy deployment, outstanding interoperability and a low learning curve for network administrators. A single OS release (Dell Networking OS 6) allows you to maintain consistent configurations across all N-Series products with a comprehensive feature set that includes:
  • One common command line interface (CLI) and graphical user interface (GUI) that use a well-known command language to help skilled network administrators become productive quickly
  • USB auto-configuration that helps network administrators rapidly deploy mirrored configurations to numerous devices by simply inserting a USB key
  • A variety of enterprise-class features with familiar and intuitive configuration and management commands
  • The latest open-standard protocols and smart integration technologies to help make smoothly operating multi-vendor networks possible
Deploy with confidence at any scale

With high throughput and capacity to handle unexpected workloads, the N3000 Series switches are ideal Layer 3 solutions for fast growing GbE networks that require high-density aggregation with seamless redundancy and availability.
  • Data rates up to 260Gbps (full duplex) and a forwarding rate of up to 193Mpps
  • Hot swap expansion module supports dual SFP+ and dual 10GBaseT
  • Built-in stacking ports and standard N-Series stacking cables support a stacking architecture up to 12 units at 84Gbps
  • Switch stacks up to 624 1GbE ports can be managed from a single screen or IP address
