TeraScale E-Series Overview

The Force10 E-Series switch/routers provide best-in-class resiliency, unmatched scalability, line-rate performance and full L2 switching and IPv4/IPv6 routing. Based on revolutionary system architecture that combines fully distributed hardware and modular software, the E-Series switch/routers ensure predictable application performance, increase network availability and reduce operating costs.

The Force10 E-Series sets a new standard for high performance switch/routers with unmatched scalability to 1,260 Gigabit Ethernet or 224 Ten Gigabit Ethernet ports per chassis, consistent performance with ACLs on all ports, and full L2 switching and L3 routing. These groundbreaking products simplify network applications from server/cluster consolidation, grid computing, campus backbones, and next-generation data centers.

The Force10 E-Series E1200/E600 provides 56.25 Gigabits per second per slot and the E300 delivers 25 Gigabits per second per slot. All deliver predictable line-rate performance with any combination of features enabled, deterministic low latency and jitter, robust L2/L3 functionality, and the resiliency to thwart denial of service (DoS) attacks. Built upon the powerful and cost-effective Force10 architecture, the E-Series sets the industry standard both for resiliency and performance.
