Overview
IBM Ethernet r-series switches are designed to meet the needs of data centers,
large enterprises, high-performance computing (HPC) environments, and Internet
exchanges and Internet service providers (IXPs and ISPs) as a highly dense
aggregation or distribution switch.
IBM Ethernet r-series switches are well suited for high-performance computing
environments. They are designed to offer low latency through the switch with
densities of 10/100/1000 Ethernet, fiber Gigabit Ethernet and 10-Gigabit Ethernet in
compact size chassis with up to 1,536 ports of Gigabit Ethernet or 512 ports of 10-
Gigabit Ethernet in a single chassis. The high-performance architecture offers up to
3.2 Terabits per second (Tbps) of data switching. IBM Ethernet r-series switches are
available in four chassis models, allow network designers to standardize on a single
product family for end-of-row, aggregation, and backbone switching, and are well
suited for data center and enterprise deployment.
IBM Ethernet r-series switches come in 4-slot, 8-slot, 16-slot, and 32-slot
configurations and are designed to deliver the following capabilities:
• Compact chassis design supports high-density single rack configurations - up to
512 10-Gigabit Ethernet and 1,536 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a 32-slot chassis
• IPv4 and IPv6 Layer 2 and Layer 3 unicast and multicast support for powerful and
flexible network deployment
• System redundancy (management module, switch fabric module, and power)
across all r-series chassis
