The VERTEX 5000 series delivers high-performance, and multilayer
switching solutions for Enterprise and service provider networks. Designed
to address the increased requirements for performance, and multilayer
switching expected from Web-class switches, the VERTEX 5000 offers high-capacity
routing, and full complement of intelligent services such as security,
traffic management, Web cache redirection, and server load balancing.
balancing optimizes access performance by dynamically and efficiently
distribute traffic load to existing servers and firewalls while comprehensive
health checking ensures that all devices are operating at peak efficiency.
With its accelerated SLB capabilities utilizing server cache technology,
the VERTEX 5000 switch provides network managers with the ability to
balance services across numerous servers at speeds of millions of packets
port based VLANs on the VERTEX 5000 series build security boundaries
between LAN segments by restricting flooding only to ports included
in a certain VLAN, while reducing traffic congestion. Ezsetup command
facility, easy instructions to follow, enables users to set up and configure
the switch without additional training on the network. Embedded Web-based
management is also useful for simple administration and monitoring on
VERTEX 5000 series consists of two models. The VERTEX 5016 has 16 10/100
Base-TX auto-sensing Ethernet ports. The VERTEX 5032 features 32 10/100
Base-TX auto-sensing ports. Each port on the VERTEX 5000 series is capable
of wire-speed throughput of 4.8 M packet per second (pps) at Layer 3.
Full line-rate non-blocking switching performance delivers 11 Gbps of
aggregate switch capacity, and support for up to 16,000 MAC addresses
handles virtually any size network.
configuration and Management
ezsetup command facility, and web-based management for easy installation,
configuration, and management without additional training.
Centralized administration and management via Simple Network Management
Protocol (SNMP) or Telnet through the console port.
16/32 10/100 Mbps auto-sensing ports, adjusting automatically to the
speed of the attached devices.
Wire speed Performance
switch bottleneck by supporting up to 11 Gbps throughput on all Ethernet
ports and 4.8 M packet per second (pps) aggregate packet rate.
port trunking (multiple parallel active links) for high-speed connections.
Full Duplex Connection
full-duplex operation on each port, which doubles the speed of each
network connection simultaneously.
IEEE 802.3x flow control mechanism, preventing packet loss by sending
a frame back to the source in full duplex mode.
store and forward switching to balance throughput when networks are
busy and multiple packets are directed to the same port at the same
MAC address table maintaining up to 16,000 MAC addresses per switch
on local area network.
switch clustering regardless of interconnection media to form a single
IP management point and disburse all management instructions dictated
by the network administrator.
possible 4,094 port-based VLANs defined in the 802.1Q standard, and
allow packet forwarding only between ports belonging to the same VLAN
to analyze network traffic copying all traffic to a monitor port on
the MAC or IP address based switch.
integrating switching architectures, permitting the system to upgrade
to Layer 3 or Layer 4 switching.
Server Load Balancing
distributes heavy TCP/IP traffic across multiple aggregated links to
relieve network congestion.
Firewall Load Balancing
traffic over multiple firewalls simultaneously for each flow, ensuring
that the security policy is not compromised.
Cache Redirection Load Balancing
network intelligent load distribution across multiple network caches
for maximized content availability.
Server Health Check
failed servers and remove them from the list of active server for
a length of time, after then the server is placed back on the list
for new server connections.
