The Summit X650 series switch is a purpose-built Top of Rack switch designed for emerging 10 Gigabit Ethernet-enabled servers deployed in enterprise data centers. Summit X650 helps optimize new server deployments while providing a seamless migration path from existing Gigabit Ethernet-based servers to 10 Gigabit Ethernet-based high-performance servers to start the transition to the new virtualized environment.
Summit X650 provides remarkable high density for 10 Gigabit Ethernet in a very small 1RU form factor for up to 32 ports in one system and 192 ports in a stacked system. Summit X650 offers two of the most advanced 10 Gigabit Ethernet technologies: 10GBASE-T and SFP+ to accommodate the needs for both copper twisted pair cable and optical fiber-based 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
With its versatile design, Summit X650 provides exceptionally high density Layer 2/3 switching with ultra low latency cut-through switching and highly scalable IPv4 and IPv6 unicast and multicast routing to enable enterprise aggregation and core backbone deployment in AC-powered and DC-powered environments.
Summit X650 simplifies network operation with the ExtremeXOS modular OS, used amongst Extreme Networks Ethernet switches. The ExtremeXOS operating system provides high availability and simplicity with one OS everywhere in the network.
10 Gigabit Ethernet switching
Summit X650 offers 24-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet non-blocking switching with IEEE 802.3an standard-based 10GBASE-T interfaces or 10GBASE-X SFP+ interfaces. Summit X650 is capable of Layer 2 and Layer 3 forwarding at 363 million packets per second forwarding rate in a small 1RU form factor, enabling the next generation high-performance server deployment in data centers.
Summit X650 supports compatible SummitStack solutions with a default configuration that is available in the popular Summit X250e, Summit X450e and Summit X450a series switches. Support for SummitStack offers a great migration path from gigabit-enabled servers to the new high-performance 10 gigabit-enabled servers. You can configure two SummitStack 40G stacking ports to provide ease of management for gigabit and 10 gigabit mixed stacking. SummitStack is provided through the standard VIM1-SummitStack module installed by default. Summit X650 offers intelligent switching and routing with exceptional high-performance stacking technology for next generation enterprise data centers - as well as dedicated 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplink capabilities powered by an ExtremeXOS modular OS. With its low packet forwarding latency, Summit X650 helps enhance the Data Center and the HPCC environment.
Dedicated uplinks at 80 Gbps
Summit X650 can support additional 8-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet by installing the optional VIM-10G8X module which offers 8-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ ports as well as SummitStack 40G ports. With this option, you can maximize the number of interfaces for servers up to 24 ports while using the dedicated 8-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet for uplink connectivity. The optional VIM1-10G8X provides ideal bandwidth to the backbone by offering 80 Gbps aggregated bandwidth. With this 8-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ module, Summit X650 can support up to 32 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet in a 1RU form factor. This option provides 3:1 oversubscription from front ports (total 24 ports) to uplink ports (total 8 ports) and maximizes server port density. Both in star and ring topologies, this architecture helps build a 10 Gigabit Ethernet data center or HPCC application.
10 Gigabit optimized stacking support
In case of a higher density 10 Gigabit Ethernet requirement for now or in the future, Summit X650 is designed to provide a 10 gigabit optimized stacking solution. Summit X650 offers an optional SummitStack256 module which provides up to 256 Gbps full duplex stacking bandwidth. With this exceptional SummitStack256 solution, Summit X650 can provide 256 Gbps stacking bandwidth optimized for high-density 10 Gigabit Ethernet switching and provides up to 192 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports with only 8RU of height in a fully redundant configuration.
High-performance computer clusterProduct Highlights
Ethernet-based HPCC installations have been increasing because of its highly economical architecture and lower cost of operation. With Summit X650, the cluster can be connected via 10 Gigabit Ethernet and with its low latency, Summit X650 helps increase the computing power for HPCC systems.
