M7100: The Latest Advances in Hardware and Software Engineering for Higher Availability, Lower Latency and Stronger Security, at a High-value Price Point.

The 10 Gigabit M7100 series consists of a fully managed, low-latency, line-rate 10G Copper "Base-T" switch solution—with 24 ports 10GBase-T (RJ45) that support Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit speeds for server, storage and network progressive upgrade. It includes 4 ports SFP+ that broaden 10 Gigabit connectivity for 1G/10G fiber uplinks and other DAC connections.

M7100 series is ideal for all organizations considering reliable, affordable and simple 10 Gigabit Ethernet Top-of-Rack server access layer; and high-density, high-performance 10GbE backbone architectures.
