Energy-efficient, cost-effective 1GbE switches for modernizing and scaling network infrastructure
The N2000 switch series offers a power-efficient Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) network-access switching solution with integrated 10GbE uplinks. With high-performance capabilities and wire-speed performance, utilizing a non-blocking architecture to easily handle unexpected traffic loads, the switches offer simple management and scalability via an 40Gbps (fullduplex) high availability stacking architecture that allows management of up to four switches from a single IP address. An integrated 80PLUScertified power supply and features such as Energy-Efficient Ethernet and short cable detection provide energy efficiency to help decrease power and cooling costs.
Modernize campus network architectures
Modernize campus network architectures with a power-efficient and resilient 1/10GbE switching solution with Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+). Select N2000 models offer 24 or 48 ports of PoE+ to deliver clean power to network devices such as wireless access points (APs), Voice-over-IP (VoIP) handsets, video conferencing systems and security cameras. For greater interoperability in multivendor networks, N2000 switches offer the latest open-standard protocols and include technology to interface with Cisco protocol RPVST+ and devices using CDP. The N2000 series is also fully tested and validated to work with Dell EqualLogic™ PS-Series storage arrays.
Leverage familiar tools and practices
All N-Series switches include Dell EMC Networking OS 6, designed for easier deployment, greater interoperability and a lower learning curve for network administrators. One common command line interface (CLI) and graphic user interface (GUI) using a well-known command language gets skilled network administrators productive quickly. With USB auto-configuration, network administrators can rapidly deploy mirrored configurations to numerous devices by simply inserting a USB key.
