Product Description

The S3100 switch series offers a power-efficient and resilient Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switching solution with integrated 10GbE uplinks for advanced Layer 3 distribution for offices and campus networks. The S3100 switch series has high-performance capabilities and wire-speed performance utilizing a non-blocking architecture to easily handle unexpected traffic loads. Use dual internal hot-swappable 80PLUS-certified power supplies for high availability and power efficiency. The switches offer simple management and scalability via an 84Gbps (full-duplex) high-availability stacking architecture that allows management of up to 12 switches from a single IP address.

Modernize campus network architectures

Modernize campus network architectures with a power-efficient and resilient 1/10GbE switching solution with dense Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+). Select S3100 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, S3100 series switches offer the latest open-standard protocols and include technology to interface with Cisco protocol PVST+. The S3100 series supports Dell Networking OS9, VLT and network virtualization features such as VRF-lite and support for Dell Embedded Open Automation Framework.

Leverage familiar tools and practices

All S3100 switches include Dell Networking OS9 for easier deployment and greater interoperability. One common command line interface (CLI) using a well-known command language means a faster learning curve for network administrators.

Deploy with confidence at any scale

S3100 series switches help create performance assurance with a data rate up to 260Gbps (full duplex) and a forwarding rate up to 193Mpps. Scale easily with built-in rear stacking ports. Switch stacks of up to 624 ports can be managed from a single screen using the highly-available stacking architecture for high-density aggregation with seamless redundant availability.
