Converged applications which increase employee productivity and your bottom line require a resilient, secure and intelligent network. The Ethernet Routing Switch 8600 combines Terabit performance with Nortel's unique reliability technologies to create the basis of a resilient Terabit cluster solution and to provide enterprises with a truly unified communications network.
The Chassis-based Ethernet Routing Switch 8600 scales up to 384 Gigabit Ethernet ports and 24 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports as well as enables WAN connectivity for ATM, PoS, and wave division multiplexing technologies to provide a solid foundation for future network growth.
Voice calls stay connected, applications remain enabled and streaming media continues to flow even under link, switch and/or site failures by using Split Multi-Link Trunking (SMLT) and Routed Split Multi-Link Trunking (RSMLT).
IPv6, multicast, high-density ports and software functionality future-proof your network today given tomorrow's requirements.
A trusted network is enabled by IPFIX and the service delivery module with threat protection system and firewall.
