Featuring a flexible modular architecture and industry standard compliance, these switches provide scalable expansion and a high level of investment protection for businesses to deploy Gigabit and 10-Gigabit packet switching and routing for office networking and Ethernet-based Internet services to homes.
The DGS-6600 series is equipped with high-speed switch fabric, and advanced software functions, including complete IPv6 support. These switches provide the performance, high availability and future proof architecture suitable for applications of not just today, but those of the future.
Flexible Modular Design The DGS-6600 series is now available in a 4-slot chassis model, the DGS-6604. One open slot is reserved for a control module, and the other three slots can be fitted with user-selectable port modules. In addition to these open slots, there are four slots for redundant backup power supplies, and one slot for a replaceable fan module. This modular architecture allows modules to be gradually added to meet network growth, and modules can be easily swapped anytime to fit network requirement changes.
High Performance The DGS-6604 4-slot switch provides a switch capacity of up to 576 Gbps and system performance of up to 428.57 Mpps. To make use of this high-performance hardware, these switches utilize a distribution switching method where each line card intelligently determines the switch path for each data packet. The switches synchronize the switching and routing information between the control cards and the line cards to map out the fastest data transfer path. With each line card capable of performing L2/3/4 on-board packet switching without relying on the control cards, the DGS-6600 series switches can deliver very fast packet forwarding at almost zero-wait speed.
High Port Densities Port densities can reach 144 Gigabit or 24 10-Gigabit ports per 4-slot chassis. All port modules are hot swappable without the need to change any hardware or software settings. By providing up to 24 10GE ports with each port running at non-blocking rates, it can help enterprises migrate to a 10G backbone.
High Availability The DGS-6604 provides 3+1 redundant backup power supplies (up to 3 active and 1 backup) and a hot swappable fan module to create a very highly available chassis-based device suitable for mission-critical network applications.
Application Convergence The DGS-6600 series combines high-speed hardware with software functions like prioritised traffic QoS and multicast routing to deliver the performance needed for real-time applications such as Internet telephony, streaming multimedia, and IPTV. In addition, these switches offer Power over Ethernet (PoE) solutions to provide both electrical power and network connectivity to PoE-capable devices, such as IP phones and wireless APs, and are ideal for large-scale enterprise edge deployment. An example of this application convergence would be VoIP for mobile users via wireless access points connected through the DGS-6600 series switches.
Complete IPv6 Support The DGS-6600 series provides complete support for IPv6 to accommodate the potential huge increase in number of users and geographical needs of Internet expansion. It addresses the requirements of emerging applications such as Internet-enabled wireless devices, home and industrial appliances, Internet-connected transportation, integrated telephony services, sensor networks, and distributed computing or gaming. The use of globally unique IPv6 addresses simplifies the mechanisms used for reach-ability and end-to-end security for network devices -functionality that is crucial to the applications and services that are driving the demand for IP addresses.
Enterprise-Wide Security The DGS-6600 series provides not only network access security but also protection against internal and external attacks. Access security is provided through comprehensive policy-based ACL, port security, IP-MAC-Port binding features, and Defeat IP Scan. Attacks hidden behind control protocols are thwarted, preventing the switchâ€™s CPU from being overwhelmed with unnecessary tasks which can cause degradation to a networkâ€™s performance. The DGS-6600 series extends security to network management via such functions as SSH v2 and SNMP v3 with authentication and encryption of management traffic.
