ExtremeSwitching X460-G2

Scalable advanced aggregation switch

The ExtremeSwitching X460-G2 series are scalable advanced aggregation switches offering high performance, non-blocking hardware technology that simplify network deployments through the use of standard hardware and software throughout the network.

The ExtremeSwitching 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 ExtremeSwitching 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.

Features and Benefits

Comprehensive Security ManagementRole-based policy and host integrity enforcement, and identity management. Universal Port Dynamic Security Profiles to provide fine granular security policies in the network.
Flexible Port ConfigurationX460-G2 24 port copper models with 10Gb uplinks can have up to 8 fiber GbE ports and 20 GbE copper ports. The X460-G2 24 port copper models with 1Gb uplinks can provide up to 12 SFP ports with 20 Gigabit Ethernet ports or eight SFP ports with 24 copper GbE ports.
High-Performance StackingUp to eight X460-G2 switches can be stacked using three different methods of stacking: SummitStack, SummitStack-V, and SummitStack-V160.
Intelligent Switching and MPLS/ H-VPLS SupportSupports sophisticated and intelligent Layer 2 switching, as well as Layer 3 IPv4/IPv6 routing including policy-based switching/routing, Provider Bridges, bidirectional ingress and egress Access Control Lists, and bandwidth control by 8 Kbps granularity both for ingress and egress.
Role-based Policy FrameworkAllows individualized access to specific network services and applications.
