Dell S6100-ON Switch Compatible Modules and Cables

Posted on by FS.COM

It is commonsense in telecommunications that data centers require repetitive building blocks of equipment with the advancement of Internet and increasing demand for higher data rate. For this reason, it is important for switches to have high flexibility to support different data rates and transmission medias, especially those switches for Layer 2 and Layer 3 in network migration. Besides flexibility, as new generation networks such as virtualization and cloud computing services come forth, the trend of future data centers is toward soft-ware defined networking (SDN), where all infrastructure is virtualized and delivered as a service. This requires the switches to be on-demand provisioning. Dell S6100-ON is a switch potential with these capabilities. This article will introduce some specific interfaces for S6100-ON to assist in the installation and deployment of S6100-ON in your network.

How S6100-ON Optimizes Data Center Network

The high-performance Dell Networking S6100-ON is a compact full featured modular 10/25/40/50/100GbE switch for applications in data center and computing environments. It has four I/O module slots, and there are three modules available. These three modules are 16x40GE QSFP+ I/O module, 8x100GE QSFP28 I/O module, 4x100GE CXP and 4x100GEQSFP28 IO module. Figure 1 shows its configurations. For the first module, all 16 ports of 40GbE QSFP+ can be used as 40GbE or 8 ports can breakout of 4x10GbE. The second module is 8 ports of the 100GbE QSFP28. Each QSFP28 port can be used as 100GbE or 4x25GbE or 2x50GbE or 4x10GbE with breakout cables when available. And The other two modules are 4 ports of 100GbE CXP and 4 ports of QSFP28. Each CXP port can be used as 100GbE. Each QSFP28 port can be used as 100GbE or 4x25GbE or 2x50GbEor 4x10GbE with breakout cables when available.

S6100-ON Applications and Features

The S6100-ON supports applications of high density 10/25/40/50/100GbE top-of rack (ToR) server aggregation in high performance data center environments. The 2RU device can provide up to 32 ports of 100GbE (QSFP28), 64 ports of 40GbE (QSFP+), or 128 ports of 10GbE. Targeting at cloud and big data environments, it supports the new 25GbE and 50GbE specifications as well. Incorporate with Dell Z9500 switch, it can be used in large implementations, thus creating a flat, two-tier, non-blocking 10/25/40/50/100GbE data center network design. Along with other S-Series 1/10/40GbE ToR switches, it is suitable for small-scale implementation in leaf and spine, enabling cost-effective aggregation of 10/25/40/50/100GbE uplinks. It can be deployed in iSCSI storage including data center bridge (DCB) converged lossless transactions. In addition, it supports scalable L2 and L3 Ethernet switching and jumbo frame for large data transfers. Using the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE), the S6100-ON adds automated configuration and provisioning capabilities to simplify the the management of network environments. To sum up, it provides the flexibility and agility to transform data centers and offer high-capacity network fabrics that are easy to deploy. It also provides cost-effective solutions to aggregations of different network modules, creating a non-blocking switching architecture, and it offers a clear path to a software-defined data center with affordable prices.
