ExtremeSwitching X460 Switch Series

Scalable advanced aggregation switch with ExtremeXOS modular operating system.

The X460-G2 series is based on Extreme Networks revolutionary ExtremeXOS, a highly resilient OS that provides continuous uptime, manageability and operational efficiency. Each switch offers the same high-performance, non-blocking hardware technology, in the Extreme Networks tradition of simplifying network deployment s through the use of common hardware and software throughout the network.

The X460-G2 switches are effective campus edge switches that support Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE ? IEEE 80 2.3az) with IEEE 80 2.3at PoE-plus and can also serve as aggregation switches for traditional enterprise networks. The X460-G2 series is also an option for DSLAM or CMTS aggregation, or for active Ethernet access.

The X460-G2 can also be used as a top-of-rack switch for many data center environment s with features such as high-density Gigabit Ethernet for concentrated data center environment s; XNV? (ExtremeXOS Network Virtualization) for centralized network-based Virtual Machine (VM) inventory, VM location history and VM provisioning; Direct Attach to offload VM switching from servers, thereby improving performance; high-capacity Layer 2/ Layer 3 scalability for highly virtualized data centers; and intra-rack and cross-rack stacking with industry leading flexibility.
