Unlike competitors' offering of individual models for GbE copper and fiber connectivity, the leading architecture employed by XGS-4528F delivers 24 1000Base-T copper interfaces along with standard RJ-45 connectors and 24 SFP slots in a 19" 1U enclosure. This unique benefit gives network designers the highest flexibility and cost saving in terms of equipment investment, network administration and system maintenance.
With two high-performance 12G stacking ports on the back panel, over 10 units of XGS-4528F can be easily hard-stacked in a ring architecture; this feature makes XGS-4528F highly scalable and eases the network expansion and administration. Moreover, as the stacking ports come with every XGS-4528F unit, customers have no need to spend extra for stacking modules and stacking cables.
Each XGS-4528F provides 144Gbps-switching capacity for wire-speed performance delivered on all GbE copper/fiber ports within the stack, as well as stacking ports and optional 10G uplinks. In addition, advanced L3 switching, multicasting, resiliency including OSPF, DVMRP, VRRP also help delivering optimal performance to the entire network.
