Advanced features with superb performance
The PowerConnect™ 6224 delivers a comprehensive feature set with superb performance for the small to medium enterprise. This 24-port Gigabit Ethernet Layer 3 switch is stackable and offers optional 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks and supports the latest version of the Internet Protocol—IPv6—enabling broader worldwide scalability. The PowerConnect™ 6224 offers Enterprise class availability with failover times that provide for sub-250ms failover of any stacked switch, including master failure under all configurations. Furthermore, 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 Voice over IP, Layer 3 routing, High Performance Cluster Computing (HPCC), and iSCSI storage. Advanced monitoring functions include sflow support, SNMP capabilities and a full GUI interface with graphical reporting. In the event of a switch failure, high availability functions maintain traffic flow in the stack, including mission-critical voice and storage sessions. The PowerConnect 6224 switch supports up to four 10 Gigabit fiber (SFP+) & two 10GBase-T copper Ethernet uplinks for connectivity directly to 10GE servers, routers, enterprise backbones and data centers.
Lifetime Limited Warranty
PowerConnect™ switches not only provide the quality, reliability and capability you expect from Dell™, but also the peace of mind that guarantees hardware for life — a true Lifetime Warranty. For more details see www.dell.com/LifetimeWarranty
Delivering significant rack density, the PowerConnect 6224 is designed to give users the flexibility to maximize server and workstation connectivity in a 1U form factor. Up to 576 servers and/or clients can be connected in a stack of twelve 62xx series switches to provide the maximum density, flexibility and manageability. And the stack is built on a 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet switch.
The PowerConnect 6224 switch supports up to four 10 Gigabit fiber (SFP+) & two 10GBase-T copper Ethernet uplinks for connectivity directly to 10GE servers, routers, enterprise backbones and data centers.
Optional 10 Gigabit Ethernet
The PowerConnect 6224 switch supports up to four 10 Gigabit fiber and two 10GBase-T copper Ethernet uplinks for connectivity directly to 10GE servers.
Advanced Layer 3 Capabilities
The PowerConnect 6224 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.
The PowerConnect 6224 offers flexibility in 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 virtual LANs (VLANs) are provided specifically for voice over IP (VoIP) applications.
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, including a captive portal option for guest 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.
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 versions of the Internet Protocol, enabling an increased number of unique IP addresses for broader scalability worldwide now and in the future.
