CS6500-SI includes 24/48*10GE SFP+ ports and 2/4*40G QSFP+ ports. CS6500-SI supports IPv6 with hardware and passes the IPv6 form certification Phase II. With the abundant IPv6 features, the product can also work for next generation network.
CS6500-SI is ideal for cloud computing data center server access, core switch of small to medium datacenter. For campus or other large network, CS6500-SI could also be deployed at aggregation or core layer as its high performance and reliability.
- Performance and Scalability
With high switching capacity, CS6500-SI supports wire-speed L2/L3 forwarding and high routing performance for IPv4 and IPv6 protocols.
The 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity of CS6500-SI is accomplished via a hot-pluggable 10 Gigabit SFP+ transceiver which supports distance up to 300 meters over multimode fiber and 10 to 40km over single-mode fiber (The distance depends the optical module chosen).
CS6500-SI supports modular redundant AC and DC power supplies for different environment applications.
- Full Data Center Features*
As new generation data center switch, CS6500-SI supports full data center features such as
DCB*(Data Center Bridging),VEPA*(Virtual Ethernet Port Aggregator), which not only improves the efficiency, guarantees the flexibility, but also enhanced the scalability of datacenter network.
CS6500-SI supports OpenFlow 1.0 and 1.3 standard protocol. OpenFlow network is increasingly becoming a trend as the core protocol of SDN network. It makes the network easier programming OpenFlow brings the high performance to datacenter users via self-defined network. With OpenFlow, this product is ideal to build SDN test-bed for research institutes and SDN Experimental Bureau for large ISP and operator.
- VSF(Virtual Switch Framework)
Virtual Switch Framework could virtualize multiple DCN switches into one logical device, achieves the sharing of information and data tables between different switches. The performance and ports density of virtualized device are greatly enlarged by times under VSF. VSF also provides simplified management work for network administrator and more reliability.
- Full Optical Port
CS6500-SI supports abundant optical connection ports to construct full optical network and increases the performance of networks.
- Rich L3 Features
CS6500-SI delivers high-performance, hardware based IP routing.
RIP, OSPF and BGP provide dynamic routing by exchanging routing information with other Layer 3 switches and routers.
With CS6500-SI, customers could easily achieve Policy based Route(PBR), which is important when they need multi exit application.
- Strong Multicast
CS6500-SI supports abundant multicast features such as IGMPv1/v2/v3 snooping and fast leave and IGMPv1/v2/v3, PIM-DM, PIM-SM, PIM-SSM and even MSDP. With Multicast VLAN Register (MVR), multicast receiver/sender control and illegal multicast source detection functions, CS6500-SI provides great application experience for customer.
CS6500-SI supports MPLS L3 VPN/MPLS L2 VPN(VPLS) and helps customer to construct more secure/extendable network. With max.255 VRF instances, CS6500-SI series could be deployed as P & PE devices, guarantees the variety of services.
- Easy high reliability network
MRPP is Multi-layer Ring Protection Protocol, which is DCN’s private fast Ethernet ring protocol. Comparing to spanning tree protocol, it has advantages of fast convergence, simple protocol calculation, less system resources cost and so on, which can improve the reliability of Ethernet network operation.
- Comprehensive QoS
With 8 queues per port, CS6500-SI enables differentiated management of up to 8 traffic types. The traffic is prioritized according to IEEE802.1p, DSCP, IP precedence and TCP/UDP port number, giving optimal performance to real-time applications such as voice and video.
CS6500-SI also supports Bi-directional rate-limiting, per port or traffic class, preserves network bandwidth and allows full control of network resources.
- Enhanced Security
IEEE 802.1X port-based access control and MAC-based access control ensure all users are authorized before being granted access to the network.
Ingress/Egress Access Control Lists (ACLs) can be used to restrict access to sensitive network resources by denying packets based on L2/L3/L4 headers information. And for some services are based on time, the product can support time based ACL to match the requirement.
Secure Shell (SSH) encrypts network management information via Telnet providing secure network management.
RADIUS/TACACS Authentication enables centralized control of the switch and restricts unauthorized users from altering the configuration of the switch.
- Abundant IPv6 Support
CS6500-SI supports IPv6 switching and routing based on hardware for maximum performance. With increased network devices growing and the need for larger addressing and higher security becomes critical, CS6500-SI will be a right product to meet the requirement. CS6500-SI passed IPv6 form Phase II certification, which is the best proof of the application.
