The G8052 RackSwitch is a 1Gb/10Gb Ethernet switch specifically designed for the data center, providing speed, intelligence, and interoperability on a proven platform. The G8052 RackSwitch offers 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports and four 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a 1 RU footprint. Designed with top performance in mind, the G8052 RackSwitch provides line-rate, high-bandwidth switching, filtering, and traffic queuing without delaying data, and large data-center-grade buffers to keep traffic moving.
The G8052 offers 48 x 1GbE RJ45 ports and four 10GbE SFP+ ports in an aggregation switch with unmatched line-rate Layer 2/3 performance at a very attractive price.
Unlike most rack equipment that cools from side to side, the G8052 RackSwitch has rear-to-front or front-to-rear airflow, which allows for flexible mounting of the switch in a server rack or datacom rack.
Hot-swappable fans and power supplies make it easy to replace units without interrupting switch operation.
Variable speed fans automatically reduce power consumption.
For network virtualization, VMready software on the switch simplifies configuration and improves security in virtualized environments. VMready automatically detects VM movement and reconfigures VM network policies across VLANs to keep the network up and running without impacting traffic or performance. It works with all leading VM providers such as VMware, Citrix Xen, and Microsoft.
Seamless, standards-based integration into existing Cisco and other networks reduces down time and learning curve.
