Product Details

The Dell/Force10 S5000 Modular Switch is a high-performance networking device designed for data centers and enterprise environments. It offers a flexible and scalable architecture, with support for a wide range of networking protocols and features. One of the key components of the S5000 is the 98H8X Dell/Force10 S5000 Modular Switch LAN San Module. This module provides additional connectivity options for the switch, allowing it to be used in a variety of network environments. In this article, we will take a closer look at the 98H8X module and its features.

Specification of 98H8X Dell/Force10 Switch Module

The 98H8X module is an expansion module for the Dell/Force10 S5000 Modular Switch. It provides additional LAN and SAN connectivity options for the switch, allowing it to be used in a variety of network environments. The module is designed to be hot-swappable, which means it can be added or removed from the switch without shutting down the system.

Features of Switch LAN San Module

The 98H8X module provides several key features that enhance the capabilities of the S5000 switch. These include:

  • Dual-port 10GbE LAN connectivity: The module provides two 10GbE LAN ports, allowing the switch to be connected to high-speed network infrastructure. This can be useful for applications that require high-bandwidth connectivity, such as data-intensive workloads or virtualized environments.
  • Dual-port 8Gb Fibre Channel connectivity: In addition to LAN connectivity, the module also provides two 8Gb Fibre Channel ports. Fibre Channel is a high-speed storage networking technology that is commonly used in data centers. With the 98H8X module, the S5000 switch can provide connectivity to Fibre Channel storage devices.
  • Full-duplex support: The module supports full-duplex communication, which allows data to be transmitted and received simultaneously. This can help to improve network performance and reduce latency.
  • Jumbo frame support: Jumbo frames are packets that exceed the standard Ethernet frame size of 1500 bytes. The 98H8X module supports jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes, which can help to reduce network overhead and improve performance.
  • Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching: The module supports both Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching, allowing it to be used in a variety of network environments. Layer 2 switching is used to forward data between devices on the same network segment, while Layer 3 switching is used to forward data between different network segments.
  • VLAN support: The module supports Virtual LAN (VLAN) technology, which allows network administrators to create logical networks within a physical network. VLANs can be used to improve network security and performance by segregating traffic between different groups of users or applications.
  • Quality of Service (QoS) support: QoS is a networking technology that allows network administrators to prioritize traffic based on its importance or characteristics. The 98H8X module supports QoS, allowing network administrators to ensure that critical traffic, such as voice or video, is given priority over less important traffic.
