Benefits & Features
High-Performance and Highly Scalable Switching and Routing
Summit X480 offers core-class intelligent switching and routing with exceptional port density and high-performance stacking technology powered by the ExtremeXOS® modular OS. With its high-performance switching and routing, Summit X480 helps enhance the data center, Carrier Ethernet and enterprise aggregation network.
High Density, Small Form Factor
Extreme Networks Summit X480 provides high density for Gigabit Ethernet in a very small 1RU form factor for up to 48 ports in one system and 384 ports in a stacked system using backward compatible SummitStack™ or high-speed SummitStack128 running at 128 gigabits per second. SummitStack-V80, V160, and V320 are also supported using the 4 x 40GbE ports of the VIM3 module.
Summit X480 also offers 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for up to six ports in one system and 16 ports in a stacked system, with the industry standard XFP interface. For emerging demands from data, storage, voice, and data convergence, Summit X480 provides highly scalable Layer 2/3 switching and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)/Hierarchical Virtual Private LAN Service (H-VPLS) by supporting up to 512K Layer 2 MAC addresses or 512K Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) Longest Prefix Match routing tables.
High Availability and Simplicity
Summit X480 enables data center, enterprise and Carrier Ethernet aggregation and core backbone deployment in AC-powered and DC-powered environments. Summit X480 simplifies network operation with ExtremeXOS modular OS, available across Extreme Networks Ethernet switches. The ExtremeXOS operating system provides high availability and simplicity with one OS everywhere in the network.
