DXS-F3500-32S High Density Data Center TOR Switch


D-Link’s new generation DXS-F3500-32S switch delivers a versatile feature set,
High-density port count in 1U rack mount size; suitable for Data Center TOR or
Enterprise & campus environments CORE/Aggregation requirements. The
DXS-F3500-32S high-performance switches feature wire-speed 10/40/100
Gigabit Ethernet switching, routing at ultra-low latency. DXS-F3500-32S provides
24x10-Gig & 4x100G/40G ports in compact 1U size.
High Availability & Flexibility
The DXS-F3500-32S switch features a modular power supply design for a
high availability architecture. The hot-swappable design means that 
power supplies can be replaced without affecting switch operation. The Multi
Chassis Trunking enables multiple DXS-F3500-32S switches to be configured in a
Virtual chassis and can provide non-stop layer-3 routing forwarding even in
case of failure of any switch in the virtual chassis.
Lossless Ethernet
Data Center Bridging (DCB) is an essential set of enhancements to Ethernet for
networking in data center environments. The DXS-F3500-32S switch support
several core components of Data Center Bridging (DCB) such as IEEE
802.1Qbb, IEEE 802.1Qaz, and IEEE 802.1Qau. IEEE 802.1Qbb (Priority-based
Flow Control) provides flow control on specific priority to ensure there is no
data-loss during network congestion. IEEE 802.1Qaz (Enhanced Transmission
Selection) manages the allocation of bandwidth amongst different traffic
classes. IEEE 802.1Qau (Congestion Notification) provides congestion
management for data flows within network domains to avoid congestion.
