Dell Networking S4810
High-performance 10/40GbE top-of-rack switch
High-density, 1RU 48-port 10GbE switch with four 40GbE uplinks and ultra-low-latency, non-
blocking performance to ensure line-rate performance; complete with feature-rich Dell Networking
OS and storage optimization for iSCSI, FCoE transit and DCB.
Ultra-low-latency, data center optimized
The Dell Networking S-Series S4810 is an ultra-low-latency
10/40GbE top-of-rack (ToR) switch purpose-built for applications
in high-performance data center and computing environments.
Leveraging a non-blocking, cut-through switching architecture,
the S4810 delivers line-rate L2 and L3 forwarding capacity
with ultra low latency to maximize network performance. The
compact S4810 design provides 48 dual-speed 1/10GbE (SFP+)
ports as well as four 40GbE QSFP+ uplinks to conserve valuable
rack space and simplify the migration to 40Gbps in the data
center core. Priority-based flow control (PFC), data center bridge
exchange (DCBX) and enhance transmission selection (ETS),
coupled with ultra low latency and line rate throughput, make
the S4810 ideally suited for iSCSI storage, FCoE transit and DCB
environments. In addition, the S4810 incorporates multiple
architectural features that optimize data center network flexibility,
efficiency and availability, including I/O panel to PSU airflow or
PSU to I/O panel airflow for hot/cold aisle environments, and
redundant, hot-swappable power supplies and fans.
The S4810 also supports Dell Networking's Open Automation
Framework, which provides advanced network automation and
virtualization capabilities for virtual data center environments.
An Active Fabric™ design with S4810 switches can be built out
to create scalable, high-performance 10/40GbE data center
networks. The resiliency of an Active Fabric is superior to legacy,
centralized core architectures, since the failure of a single node
within a CLOS network cannot bring down the entire switching
The S4810 is supported with Active Fabric Manager (AFM), which
helps automate design and deployment of multi-tier fabrics. AFM
helps customers manage multiple fabrics from a single console,
enabling a unified view of the entire fabric, when combined
with Dell OMNM and other management solutions. With AFM,
over 25 templates can be customized for specific workload
and deployment scenarios, easily delivering active/active L2
or L3 designs for 1/10/40G with Dell Z9000 to rack and blade
infrastructures (including Dell MXL).
Key applications
High-density 10GbE ToR server aggregation in high-
performance data center environments
Design with the Z-Series fabric core switch to create a
flat, two-tier, non-blocking 1/10/40GbE data center
network design
Design a Clos-based Active Fabric with Z9000 switch in
leaf and spine with the S4810/S4820T 10GbE ToR switches
for cost-effective aggregation of 10GbE uplinks
Enterprise iSCSI (iSCSI over DCB)
