The switch is designed to boost performance and change economics in data centres and high performance networks.
It is part of a family of fixed switches - from 10/100 to dense 10 Gigabit for top-of-the-rack - that work on the modular ExtremeXOS operating system.
The Summit X650's SummitStack stacking technology delivers an economic 1 gigabit to 10 gigabit migration while managing all switches under the same technology.
It allows organisations to support upgrades to 10 Gigabit Ethernet while protecting existing data centre investments.
The switch supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet within a single Rack Unit (1RU) with up to 32 x 10 Gigabit ports on a single system.
The switches are distributed by Avnet, available in Australia now and cost from $30,000.
