The growing number of power-hungry end devices and applications is driving the demand for high-performance nodes in multi-tier networks. The LANCOM XS-6128QF is especially designed to operate as an aggregation switch in hierarchical switch infrastructures transporting very high data volumes. With a maximum switch capacity of 1 Terabit, the device operates either as a core switch in two-tier networks or as a distribution switch in three-tier networks. Its idiosyncratic and yet innovative design—characterized by the use exclusively industry-standard interfaces, the availability of all ports without an expensive modular construction, and the use of combo and FleX ports—facilitates the cost-effective implementation of multi-Gigabit infrastructures.
The techpaper describes how the innovative design of the LANCOM XS-6128QF helps you to address a wide variety of port and network requirements.
After a look at the basic specifications of the LANCOM XS-6128QF, the techpaper goes on to examine advanced application scenarios and in particular highlights the outstanding versatility of this aggregation switch: Based on four configurable board types, it allows six different port configurations without the need to purchase or exchange expensive modules.
