Virtualized core switching and routing

The Dell Networking E Series delivers the high density required for virtualized data centers and cloud networks with two-key models:
  • E600i is a 16RU chassis featuring up to 7 blade I/O (Input/Output) slots coupled with a backplane driving up to 1.75 Tbps bandwidth
  • E1200i is a 24RU chassis featuring up to 14 blade I/O slots coupled with a backplane driving up to 3.5 Tbps bandwidth


Enable a new way of designing switching and routing infrastructures with Dell Networking E1200i platforms. The E1200i architecture, patented backplane and application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) technology are designed to increase network availability, agility and efficiency while reducing power and cooling costs. The E1200i supports mission-critical applications across converged fabrics in data center, telecommunication provider, service provider, enterprise and HPCC networks.

Dell Networking E1200i platform coupled with FTOS makes a cost-effective and flexible deployment option complete with comprehensive management, automation and resource provisioning capabilities.

 

Total cost of ownership (TCO)

  • Lower TCO through true non-blocking, line-rate throughput that removes performance bottlenecks from the network — all packet sizes, all the time
  • High-density fabrics enable simpler network topologies that reduce both network capital and operational costs
    • Up to 100 Gbps of data capacity per slot today (125 Gbps/slot raw capacity)
    • Up to 560 total 10GbE ports in one half-rack chassis using the high-density 40-port line card
    • Switching fabric capacity of up to 3.5 Tbps, and packet forwarding capacity of more than 2 Bpps using hardware based distributed forwarding engines
    • Low power per line-rate port consumption with an eco-efficient power and cooling design that saves energy
  • Scale for tomorrow’s network with converged fabric
    • IPv4 unicast and multicast routing for advanced services networks
    • IPv6-ready for native and dual-stack next-generation IP networks
    • 100 Gbps/slot data capacity
    • Predictable and consistent latency at all frame sizes with high-touch features enabled

Flexibility

  • Tunable, scalable high-capacity link aggregation group (LAG) with 64 links per group and 32 LAGs per system or 8 links per group and 255 LAGs per system uses advanced hashing algorithms to balance traffic evenly across links in backbone or aggregation applications
  • Buffering and virtual-output queues eliminate head-of-line blocking and minimize queuing delay to guarantee packet delivery
  • Configurable CAM profiles enable custom space allocation in hardware forwarding and classification tables to support flexibility and scalability as network requirements change

High availability, serviceability and manageability

  • Dell FTOS software, built on NetBSD® and a Unix®-like kernel and running on-the-route processor modules (RPM) and line cards, enables new advances in control-plane scalability and system reliability
  • High-performance RPM uses distributed control-plane processing on three CPUs and provides 1+1 control-plane redundancy with hitless forwarding
  • Redundant switch fabric modules (SFM) with graceful and deterministic failure recovery
  • High-availability hardware and software architecture with OIR (hot swap) of all components
  • Patented passive copper backplane
  • Power and cooling redundancy
