Next-Generation Programmable Leaf Switch

Next-Generation Programmable Leaf Switch SLX 9240 | Extreme Networks Switching

High-density Connectivity Required by High-end Enterprise and Cloud Data Centers

The SLX 9240 is a fixed 100/40 GbE spine switch in a 1U form factor that supports 24 MB of dynamically shared packet buffer and an overall throughput of 3.2 Tbps/1.3 Bpps.

Modular, Virtualized Operating System

The SLX 9240 runs Extreme SLX-OS, a fully virtualized Linux-based operating system that delivers process level resiliency and fault isolation. The SLX-OS supports advanced switching features and is highly programmable enabling full lifecycle automation with Workflow Composer.

Integrated Application Hosting

ExtremeSwitching SLX 9240 can run onboard applications alongside the switch OS – all without impacting performance. This can help provide network insight through on-board analytics applications and even enable new network applications without the need for a separate hardware device.
