The increase in mobility, voice and video combined with virtualization and the doubling of data every 2 years are some of the main drivers for bottlenecks that are occurring in parts of the network not previously seen with Gigabit connectivity.
10-Gigabit is the new Gigabit!

Plus Switch (“E”) Set priority for voice, video and other data traffic for enhanced service and performance compared to unmanaged switches

10G Plus Switches provide plug-and-play connectivity, in addition to configurable L2 network features in order to meet current and future needs on virtualization, converged networking and mobility. Some of the main features include:

  • VLAN support for traffic segmentation including port-based and 802.1Qbased
  • QoS (Quality of Service) for traffic prioritization including port-based and 802.1p/DSCPbased
  • Auto "denial of service" (DoS) prevention
  • IGMP snooping support for multicast optimization
  • Loop detection and broadcast storm controls
  • Rate limiting and priority queuing for better bandwidth allocation
  • Port mirroring for network monitoring
  • Port trunking/link aggregation (LAG) allows for increased throughput beyond 10G or to provide redundancy across the link(s)
