QuantaMesh T1048-LB9M is a high-performance and power efficient L2/3 switch designed in a 1RU form factor. QuantaMesh T1048-LB9M is purpose built as the rack management switch for high density data center deployments. With 48 ports of 10/100/1000 and 4 integrated 10/25GbE SFP28 ports the switch delivers non-blocking forwarding of 296Gbps combined with feature rich L2 and L3 functions. QuantaMesh T1048-LB9M with QNOS (Quanta Network OS) supports not only layer 2 functions but also the advanced layer 3 features, including OSPF, BGP, and ECMP. In order to fulfill the demands for contemporary data center management switch, QuantaMesh T1048-LB9M supports the features for data center application such as OpenFlow v1.3 for software-defined networking and Restful API and Ansible for networking automation capability.
Extensive Layer 2 Features
Equipped with full Layer 2 features like Spanning Tree, Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) and Storm Control, QuantaMesh T1048-LB9M provides loop-free environment, best control of multicast traffic and stable network. Supported with 802.1Q up to 4K active VLANs, T1048-LB9M secures broadcast domain as well as resource access in between each VLAN.
Comprehensive Layer 3 Features
In order to support layer3 function, QuantaMesh T1048-LB9M is supported with feature- rich routing protocols, such as VRF lite, OSPFv2, VRRPv2, BGP4, and ECMP to provide the advanced network routing.
The QuantaMesh series can be managed through Command Line Interface (CLI) for easy and fast management configuration. T1048-LB9M also supports Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) based on standard MIB and private MIB for network administrator to easily configure, monitor and manage remotely. sFlow provides quantize accuracy for network traffic analyzing and management. With the evolution from IPv4 to IPv6, T1048-LB9M is an IPv6 integrated management switch.
Software Defined Network (SDN)
SDN has emerged as a new approach to support open, vendor-agnostic, simplified architectures, and programmable networks. QuantaMesh T1048-LB9M is equipped with OpenFlow v1.3 features to fulfill the needs of modern data center applications.
The QuantaMesh T1048-LB9M is designed for high availability from both hardware and software perspectives. The key features include:
- 1+1 hot-swappable power supplies
- The sku options for rear-to-front or front-to rear cooling
- Color coded fan module to indicate airflow direction
- Spanning Tree with Guarding Features
- Up to 64 Groups of LACP with per Group 8 Member Ports
- ECMP routing for load balancing and redundancy
