Network optimized for demanding users
Easily handle exponential traffic growth with the PowerConnect 8100 Series. Implement wire-rate, high-density 10/40GbE switches designed to improve video-on-demand performance, unified communications, VoIP and rich media applications for your enterprise campus, branch offices or small business networks.
Enable non-stop networking with high-availability stacking, dual hot-swap, redundant power supplies and removable fan modules. Up to 384 10GbE ports can be managed as a single logical unit.
Simplified network efficiency
With new tool-less ReadyRailsâ„¢ kits the PowerConnect 8100 switches install in moments, reducing time and resources. Deploy stacks of switches in a fraction of the time.Make end-to-end operation efficient and responsive for your servers and storage with enhanced functionality to easily support converged fabric requirements (DCB), ready integration with Dell Storage arrays and future-ready, standards-based 10/40GbE operation for high-performance applications.
Designed to be energy efficient and budget friendly, PowerConnect 8100 switches implement power-saving features that include Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) for reduced per-port power consumption, and 80 PLUS-certified power supplies to help lower overall power and cooling costs.
Enjoy easy management through an industry-standard command line interface (CLI), remote management via an embedded web server, third-party SNMP-based management console applications and Telnet or serial connections.
Integrated, simple to deploy platforms
A network built on the PowerConnect 8100 Series will allow you to connect servers to Ethernet-based network elements at 40GbE which helps reduce the number of uplink ports and number of other 1/10GbE switches required in the campus. This significantly increases network availability to servers, arrays and other switches while using bandwidth efficiently.
