To release SwitchBlade x8106 chassis for mid-sized enterprises looking for the benefits of a chassis-based switch
Allied Telesis has made enhancements to the SwitchBlade x8100 series products.
Besides, many mid-sized enterprise organizations look for the benefits of a chassis-based switch, so Allied Telesis will release the SwitchBlade x8106 chassis which delivers all the features and benefits of the SwitchBlade x8112, in a compact 4RU 6-slot chassis announced the press release.
Organizations such as schools, universities, hospitals and large government customers, need solutions that deliver performance, density and a large total port count. To meet these requirements, Allied Telesis has released the CFC960 control module, which is capable of delivering a total of 1.92Tbps and supporting 160 10GbE ports in a single 7RU chassis.
In July 2013, the company released Allied Management Framework (AMF) – a technology designed to reduce the cost and complexity of managing network infrastructure. At the time of its release, AMF was capable of managing up to 40 network nodes, the equivalent of almost 300 switches. With further enhancements and the subsequent release of the CFC960, AMF can now manage up to 120 nodes – nearly 1000switches.
Subhasish Gupta, Country Manager (India & SAARC), Allied Telesis, said, “With these enhancements, Allied Telesis has made significant improvements to its SwitchBlade x8100 family and can now meet a huge range of network requirements, from mid-enterprise to large government organizations. And with AMF embedded within the network, there is no other solution on the market that delivers the same performance while also assisting users to reduce their total cost of ownership.”
