D-Link’s DXS-3600 10GbE L2/L3 Switch family consist of new compact, high-peformance switches that feature wired-speed 10-Gigabit Ethernet switching, routing, and very low latency. The 1U height and selectable front-to-back or back-to-front air flow make the DXS-3600 series suitable for top-of-rack (ToR) deployment in data centers or enterprise and campus aggregation network environments. The DXS-3600 switches have 24 fixed 10 GbE SFP+ ports and can feature more ports with the addition of an expansion module. The expansion modules not only provide extra 10G SFP+ ports, but also increase the flexibility of 120G stacking, 40G uplinks or low cost inter-rack 10G Base-T connections for different applications.
The DXS-3600 switches deliver high-performance 10-Gigabit Ethernet switching capacity of up to 960 Gbps and forwarding rates of up to 595.2 Mpps. The switches feature hot-swappable power supplies and fan trays, which enable the switches to be a redundant, high availability architecture. The modular power design allows users to select AC or DC power according to where the switch is deployed. When inserting two power modules, the two power modules share the loading and help to extend the lifetime of the other. The DXS-3600 series also features a modular fan design. Three fans can back up each other, providing N+1 redundancy for the system. If one of the fans fails, the other fans will increase their speed by automatically detecting the system temperature. Both power and fan modules are hot-swappable, which minimizes the downtime of the DXS-3600 series.
