Ethernet Aggregation Switch MES3324F

Mass production
Key features
  • Bandwidth up to 128 Gbps
  • L3 functions
  • Non-blocking switching fabric
  • 4 x 10G ports in basic configuration
  • Stacking up to 8 devices
  • Hot-swappable redundant power supplies
  • Duplicate cooling system
  • Front-to-Back cooling 
MES3324F series switches can be used in service provider networks as aggregation or transport switches. They have a great margin of performance due to universal interfaces operating at speeds of 10Gbps or 1Gbps.

The features’ set of  MES3324F  includes advanced L2 functions, static routing, dynamic routing, 4 SFP+ 10 Gbps  interfaces, stack up to 8 devices, redundant and hot swappable power supplies. 

Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) protocol  provides fast convergence (less than 200 ms) of the network, that guarantees uninterrupted service.
