The BNT Virtual Fabric 10Gb Switch Module for IBM BladeCenter offers the most bandwidth of any blade switch and represents the perfect migration platform for clients who are still at 1Gb outside the chassis by seamlessly integrating in the existing 1Gb infrastructure. This is the first 10Gb switch for IBM BladeCenter that is convergence ready (that is, able to transmit Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) to a Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) capable top-of-rack switch).

Integration and consolidation
This module offers integration within the BladeCenter chassis, consolidating full Layer 2-3 LAN switching and routing capabilities into a single chassis. This helps flatten the data center infrastructure and reduces the number of discrete devices, management consoles, and equipment that administrators must deal with, helping lower costs and simplifying deployment.

Performance
With support for ten 10Gb uplinks, clients can exploit not only up to 200Gbps of bi-directional uplink bandwidth, but also an extremely low oversubscription (14 to 10), which can support even the most performance-intensive environments (up to 7.2Gbps per blade server port). Clients wanting extreme performance can use up to four switches and the quad port 10Gb adapter and get up to 1.92Tbps of data per BladeCenter H chassis.

Lower power consumption
BNT using only 75W per switch delivers extreme performance per watt, which is second to none with its support for up to 6.4Gbps per watt of power.

Layer 3 functionality
The BNT switch module includes Layer 3 functionality, which provides security and performance benefits as inter-VLAN traffic stays within the chassis. This switch also provides the full range of Layer 3 protocols from static routes for technologies such as Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) for enterprise customers.

Fault tolerance
These BNT switches learn alternate routes automatically and perform faster convergence in the unlikely case of a link, switch, or power failure. The switch uses proven technologies like L2 trunk failover, advanced VLAN-based failover, VRRP, IGMP V3 snooping, and OSPF.

Converged fabric
The BNT switch is designed to support CEE and connectivity to FCoE modules, making the IBM solution fully FCoE capable. CEE will help enable clients to combine storage, messaging traffic, VoIP, video, and other data on a common data center Ethernet infrastructure. FCoE will help enable highly efficient block storage over Ethernet for consolidating server network connectivity.
