Lower PriorityPorts

Mission Critical Ports

  • Load sharing resilient power bus design

  • Power manager continuously monitors system and PoE power

    • Extensive CLI for configuration and monitoring

  • Deterministic failure mode of PoE power in case the required number of PSMs are unavailable

  • Port prioritization so that critical ports maintain power during PSM failures

What makes a good c series prospect
What Makes A Good C-Series Prospect?

  • Wants to spend $30k to $50k+ for core upgrade or LAN refresh

  • Prospect is keen to see an alternative to the Cisco Catalyst 45xx, better value than Cat 65xx

  • Prospect values high performance and proven reliability in their network

  • Needs solution to scale from 50-5,000 user environments

Benefits of a force10 network
Benefits of a Force10 Network?

  • Force10 philosophy

    • Buy less

    • Build best-of-breed, open and converged networks

  • 2-Tier model – Core/Distribution & Access

    • Less switches ~ lower CapEx, OpEx & networking points of failure

  • Network design with standards-based protocols/features

    • Interoperability with other vendors

    • Customers to build multi-vendor best-of-breed networks

    • No need to worry about features being disabled/unsupported

  • Inter-dependency of features also based on standards

    • Can change features/products without worrying about changing the network design/architecture
