The EX6210 is a 10-slot chassis designed to support a variety of highly flexible network configurations. Two of the slots hold Switch Fabric Routing Engine (SRE) modules, while the remaining eight slots are dedicated for I/O line cards. Optional configurations allow an additional line card to be housed in an SRE slot*, enabling users to choose between higher port densities or redundant SREs.
Two EX6200 48-port 10/1000/1000BASE-T line cards are available, with and without support for the IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) standard. PoE provides 15.4 watts per port for powering networked devices such as telephones, video cameras, multiple radio IEEE 802.11n wireless LAN (WLAN) access points and video phones in converged network environments. The PoE line card also supports the IEEE 802.3at PoE+ standard, which delivers up to 30 watts of power per port for devices that require more than the 15.4 watts provided by PoE.
