High-power PoE+ Gigabit Ethernet Stackable Edge Switch with IPv6 routing.

The C-Series is a scalable, high-performance Gigabit Ethernet switch offering support for IEEE 802.3at compliant high-power PoE, flexible 10 Gigabit Ethernet options, dynamic IPv4 and IPv6 routing, and enhanced automation capabilities to provide for a future-proofed solution that significantly reduces OpEx for our customers.

Along with a switch capacity of 264Gbps, the C-Series provides up to 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports as well as two SFP+ ports, with the ability to support both 1GE and 10GE uplinks on the same port. Leveraging stacking capability, as many as 8 C-Series switches (both 24-port and 48-port combinations) can be interconnected in a single stack to create a virtual switch that provides 2.11Tbps of capacity and up to 384 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports as well as 16 10GE uplink ports.
