MES3100

Aggregation switch series

 

The MES3100 series switches are designed to be used in service provider networks as aggregation layer switches or transport switches in the data centers for Top-of-Rack Switches (MES3124, MES3124F). They have a wide performance range with universal interfaces operating at speeds of 10 Gbps or 1 Gbps. The switches can be used in cooperation with ELTEX - OPTOKON access switches or other manufacturers' equipment.

Key parameters of the switch - advanced Layer 2 features, support for static IP routing, Dynamic Routing, up to 4 uplink interfaces 10 Gbps (SFP+), stackable up to 8 units, redundant power supply with hot-swappable capability.

Support for high speed EAPS (Ethernet Automatic Protection Switching) convergence protocol enables to receive time convergence of optical rings in less than 200 ms, which ensures uninterrupted delivery of services. The switches support the use of two power supply modules with automatic switching to the redundant module, and a hot-swappable change of power modules.
