The M4300-12X12F half-width switch provides 12-port 10GBASE-T and 12-port 10GBASE-X SFP+. All (24) 10G ports are independent and 1G backward compatible for progressive transition to 10G speeds. With 480Gbps non-blocking fabric, M4300-12X12F delivers L2/L3/L4 and IPv4/IPv6 rich services for virtualization (Auto-iSCSI prioritization), server / storage interconnect and SMB core applications.
Virtual Chassis stacking provides non-stop forwarding (NSF) and hitless failover for highest availability (HA). Two half-width M4300 10GbE models can be paired in a single rack space for redundant top-of-rack and active-active server installations. 10 Gigabit models seamlessly stack with 1 Gigabit models enabling line-rate spine and leaf topologies.
