High Capacity Stackable Layer 3+ SwitchesAllied Telesis x950 Series switches are ideal for the modern enterprise network core, where stacking creates a resilient local or distributed solution. These powerful switches support 100 Gigabit connectivity, and provide the capacity that today's Smart City and IoT networks need.x950 Series switches feature a high-performing 1.92 Terabit fabric, to eliminate bottlenecks, effortlessly stream video and ensure that all traffic in large networks is delivered reliablyx950 switches feature either 24 x 1/10 Gigabit SFP+ ports or 24 x 1/2.5/5/10 Gigabit copper ports to enable flexible deployment, while 4 built-in 40G/100G ports provide high-speed backbone connectivity. With an expansion bay, plus the ability to stack multiple units, extra capacity can be seamlessly added for a future-proof network. Smart City and IoT networks Large switching and routing tables support Smart City networks and the Internet of Things (IoT). The x950 Series meets the increasing demand for the convergence of multiple services, like video surveillance, public Wi-Fi, information kiosks, environmental information and more.Powerful network management The Allied Telesis Autonomous Management FrameworkTM (AMF) easily meets the increasing management requirements of modern converged networks, by automating many everyday tasks such as configuration management. AMF has powerful centralized management features that allow an entire network to be easily managed as one single virtual device. Vista ManagerTM EX is an intuitive visualization tool that complements the power of AMF. It allows a user to monitor the network and quickly identify issues, before they become problems.Secure The x950 Series is packed with advanced security features to protect the network-from the edge to the core. This includes powerful control over network traffic types and protection against attacks. AMF enables secure network management without the overhead of additional complexityResilient The convergence of network services in the enterprise has led to increasing demand for highly-available networks with minimal downtime. Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStackTM), in conjunction with link aggregation, provides a network with no single point of failure, and a resilient solution for high-availability applications. The x950 Series can form a VCStack of up to eight units, at any port speed, for enhanced resiliency and simplified device management. With VCStack over Long Distance (VCStack-LD), stacks can also be created over long distance fiber links, making it the perfect choice for distributed environments too. Allied Telesis Ethernet Protection Switched Ring (EPSRingTM) and the standards-based G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection, ensure that distributed network segments have high-speed, resilient access to online resources and applications.Reliable Designed with reliability in mind, the x950 Series guarantees the continual delivery of essential services. Hot-swappable components, such as XEMs, fans and load-sharing Power Supply Units (PSUs), pair with near-hitless online stack reconfiguration to ensure that maintenance doesn't affect network uptime.Environmentally friendly The x950 Series supports Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), automatically reducing the power consumed by the switch whenever there is no traffic on a port, reducing operating costs.
