Nortel 1/10Gb Uplink Ethernet Switch
 • Bio-datacenter evolving infrastructure with high speed connections for any Bull Blade Chassis
Nortel 1/10Gb Uplink Ethernet Switch
Nortel 1/10Gb uplink Ethernet Switch for Bull Blade Chassis provides the ability to converge network and SAN fabrics onto 10Gb Ethernet in the future, while providing very low power, low cost and less complexity today. This switch provides seamless integration into any standard (Cisco) network, while evolving the infrastructure to keep in pace with virtualization needs (VMReady) or high speed iSCSI requirements.
  • Improve application availability and boost application performance
  • Ready for an evolving Bio data center with 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity
  • Enhance application and server security with network virtualization
  • Simplify server deployment and management

      Lower cost , more options
    Nortel 1/10Gb uplink Ethernet Switch for Bull Blade Chassis offers a great price-performance ratio. Its six 1Gb links can be seamlessly deployed in today’s networks, while its three 10Gb ports provide an easy migration path to tomorrow’s 10Gb networks. Compared to other vendors’ 10Gb switches, the switch is ready for the future and is about half the price of alternative offerings on the market. With some vendors advanced routing features are a fee-based upgrade, while the Nortel 1/10Gb Ethernet switch for Bull blade Chassis provide it standard.

      More Bandwidth for Future workloads
    The three 10Gb and six 1Gb uplink ports on the switch provide line-rate performance with near zero packet drop and a non-blocking architecture that’s ideal for iSCSI and Web 2.0 applications. The well-thought-out design of the module provides up to 100 Gbps of bi-directional port throughput. The 1/10Gb uplink switch allows server administrators to add more powerful servers to any Bull Blade Chassis without worrying about the switches becoming bottlenecks.

      Innovation of Virtualization
    The VMReady™ feature allows the 1/10Gb Uplink switch to dynamically configure itself to coexist in any VMware environment. It automatically detects virtual machine movement from one physical server to another, and instantly reconfigures its network policies across VLANs to keep the network up and running without any interruption in traffic.

      High Availability and seamless integration
    The Ethernet Switch offers integrated, high-availability support in both Layer 2 and Layer 3 to help minimize single points of failure and ensure network reliability and performance.
    All Nortel Ethernet Switch for Bull Blade Chassis are designed with a standards-based approach that allows for seamless integration into upstream Ethernet networks. An administrator can use an industry-standard Cisco CLI.
