FastIron SX PoE-ready Layer 2/Layer 3 switches are built to deliver a reliable and secure Ethernet and IP services infrastructure for a wide range of enterprise and service provider environments.
The FastIron SX enables enterprise customers to deploy a VoIP-ready infrastructure featuring the industry’s most scalable and resilient Power over Ethernet (PoE) design and a rich feature set to secure and simplify the deployment of an edge-to-core converged network.
Service providers will benefit from the power of the IronWare networking intelligence, which features advanced Layer 2 services, Foundry’s Metro Ring Protocol (MRP) for rapid service restoration in ring-based topologies, VLAN stacking for tunneled VLAN services, and rich bandwidth management features for controlling network utilization.
The FastIron SX 800 supports redundant management and switch fabric modules for enhanced system resilience. The chassis supports PoE over tri-speed 10/100/1000Mbps interfaces.
Switch management modules are available with integrated Gigabit Ethernet or 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports providing cost-effective system configurations that include high-capacity connections to upstream switches. The management modules include high-performance system processors and high-capacity memory for scalable networking with routing capacity up to 1 million BGP routes and 20 BGP peers.
The FastIron SX features a unique power distribution design for system and PoE power. The chassis are designed with independent system and PoE power subsystems. This design achieves optimal power operation and configuration, reducing the equipment and ongoing costs in comparison to modular systems that use a common supply to power both the system and the PoE elements. The power consumption of a line module’s PoE circuitry does not impact the system power. Similarly, the power consumption of the line modules, switch modules, and management modules does not impact the PoE power.
Power consumption for the system and PoE are calculated, provisioned, and managed independently of one another. As more PoE devices are added to a switch, a simple power budget calculation determines whether another PoE power supply needs to be added to the switch with no impact to system power. The system power distribution and the PoE power distribution sub-systems are each designed for M+N load-sharing operation (where N=1 for SX 800. This dual-distribution power design simplifies power configuration while enhancing system reliability.
The chassis can be configured for a wide range of power environments including: 110V/220V AC power, -48V DC power and mixed AC/DC power configurations. To scale PoE configurations, PoE power supplies are available in two ratings – 1250W and 2500W.
The FastIron SX provides a scalable, secure, low-latency, and fault-tolerant infrastructure for cost-effective integration of VoIP, video, wireless access, and high-performance data onto a common network. The system architecture features a scalable and resilient PoE design and a low-latency cell-based switch fabric with intelligent traffic management to ensure reliable and high-quality VoIP services. A rich suite of security features, including policy-based access control, IP source guard, dynamic ARP inspection, and DHCP snooping, work in unison to control network access and shield the network from internal and external threats. The FastIron SX establishes a new class of convergence-ready solutions, enabling organizations to implement a secure, reliable, scalable, and high-quality infrastructure for total network convergence.
