The Extreme Networks® Summit® X440 series switches extend the intelligence and
resiliency of the ExtremeXOS® network operating system to the converged access
edge, enabling fine grained Quality of Service (QoS), stacking, high availability
features and identity aware security in a compact, cost effective switch.
Standards-based PoE/PoE+ support (802.3af / 802.3at) allows the Summit X440
series to support the large-scale rollout of converged network devices such as
IP telephones, wireless access points as well as physical security devices such as
With high density, low latency, line rate 10/100/1000 Ethernet, dedicated 10 Gbps
stacking ports, available redundant power supplies, hardware-based IP support
(IPv4 and IPv6) and rich Layer 2 to Layer 4 functionality in a compact, 1RU form
factor, the Summit X440 also provides effective enterprise class network access.
The Summit® X460-G2 series is based on Extreme Networks® revolutionary
ExtremeXOS®, a highly resilient OS that provides continuous uptime, manageability
and operational efficiency. Each switch offers the same high-performance, nonblocking
hardware technology, in the Extreme Networks tradition of simplifying
network deployments through the use of common hardware and software
throughout the network.
The Summit X460-G2 switches are effective campus edge switches that support
Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE – IEEE 802.3az) with IEEE 802.3at PoE-plus and
can also serve as aggregation switches for traditional enterprise networks. The
Summit X460-G2 series is also an option for DSLAM or CMTS aggregation, or for
active Ethernet access.
The Summit X460-G2 can also be used as a top-of-rack switch for many data
center environments with features such as high-density Gigabit Ethernet
for concentrated data center environments; XNV™ (ExtremeXOS Network
Virtualization) for centralized network-based Virtual Machine (VM) inventory, VM
location history and VM provisioning; Direct Attach™ to offload VM switching from
servers, thereby improving performance; high-capacity Layer 2/Layer 3 scalability
for highly virtualized data centers; and intra-rack and cross-rack stacking with
The Extreme Networks Summit X430 series Gigabit Ethernet standalone switches
provide network edge connectivity for enterprises, branch offices, and small and
medium-sized businesses. Summit X430 series are available in 28- or 52-port
10/100/1000 Mpps port models 8 or 24 port 10/100/1000 Mpps IEEE 802.3at
PoE models and are ideal for network convergence of Unified Communications,
wireless mobility, streaming media and multicast traffic on a single open fabric
The Summit X430 leverages a compact 1RU and 10-inch deep form factor, along
with a low volume operating mode that makes it ideal for open office and wiring
closet environments. Summit X430 series switches support up to 4 fixed front
panel 100/1000BASE-X (SFP) unpopulated ports (two SFP ports on the 8 port
PoE+ switch) that can be utilized for high-speed backbone or link aggregation
connections between wiring closets.
Summit X430 series simplifies network operation by using the ExtremeXOS, a
modular operating system (OS) that spans all Extreme Networks Summit and
BlackDiamond Ethernet switches. Powered by ExtremeXOS, the Summit X430
series enables organizations to build highly resilient and secure edge networks
that support high network uptime, simplified management, increased operational
efficiency with low total cost of ownership.
The Summit X430 provides exceptional Policy-based QoS with advanced traffic
management for converged applications. With eight hardware queues per port to
support granular (8kbps-1Mbps) traffic classification, the Summit X430 provides
flexible yet reliable solution for converged data, voice and video traffic.
The Summit X480 series switch is a
versatile, high-end Ethernet switch for
data center, enterprise aggregation,
and Carrier Ethernet deployments.
Summit X480 helps optimize
application performance for a variety
of network deployments with its rich
features and high scalability.
Summit X480 provides high density
for Gigabit Ethernet in a small
1RU form factor for up to 48 ports
in one system and 384 ports in a
stacked system using backward
compatible SummitStack™, highspeed
at 128 gigabits per second,
SummitStack-V, which utilizes 10 GbE
ports as stacking ports, enabling
the use of standard cabling and
optics technologies used for 10
GbE, SummitStack V80, V160, or
V320for 80 Gbps, 160 Gbps, or 320
Gbps of stacking bandwidth using
standard cabling and optics for 40
GbE Summit X480 also offers 10
Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for up
to eighteen ports in one system and
80 ports in a stacked system using
QSFP+ to SFP+ breakout cables. For
emerging demands from voice/data
convergence and storage, Summit
X480 provides highly scalable Layer
2/3 switching and MPLS/HVPLS by
supporting up to 512K Layer 2 MAC
addresses or 512K IPv4 Longest Prefix
Match routing tables.
Summit X770 provides high density for 40 Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit
Ethernet switching in a small 1RU form factor.
With its versatile design, the Summit X770 series provides high density Layer 2/3
switching with low latency cut-through switching, and IPv4 and IPv6 unicast and
multicast routing to enable enterprise aggregation and core backbone deployment
in AC-powered and DC-powered environments.
Summit X770 series simplifies network operation with the ExtremeXOS modular
operating system (OS), which is used among all Extreme Networks Summit and
BlackDiamond Ethernet switches. The high availability ExtremeXOS operating
system provides simplicity and ease of operation through the use of one OS
everywhere in the network.
