The Lenovo ThinkSystem NE1072T RackSwitch that uses 10GBASE-T and 40 Gb QSFP+ Ethernet technology is specifically designed for the data center. It is ideal for today’s big data, cloud, and enterprise workload solutions. It is an enterprise class Layer 2 and Layer 3 full featured switch that delivers line-rate, high-bandwidth switching, filtering, and traffic queuing without delaying data. Large data center-grade buffers help keep traffic moving, while the hot-swap redundant power supplies and fans (along with numerous high-availability features) help provide high availability for business sensitive traffic.
The NE1072T RackSwitch has 48x 1/10 Gb Ethernet (RJ-45) fixed ports and 6x QSFP+ ports that support 40 GbE optical transceivers, active optical cables (AOCs), and direct attach copper (DAC) cables. The QSFP+ ports can also be split out into four 10 GbE ports by using QSFP+ to 4x SFP+ DAC or active optical breakout cables.
The switch is ideal for latency sensitive applications, such as high-performance computing clusters and financial applications.
