The X695 is a purpose-built 48 x 25Gb SFP28 port switch with 8 x 40/100Gb QSFP28 uplinks designed for high-performance enterprise and aggregation applications. The X695 can support a range of interface speeds, including 1Gb, 10Gb, 25Gb, 40Gb, 50Gb, and 100Gb, all in a compact 1RU form factor. This enables the X695 to be flexibly deployed in Enterprise LAN or top-of-rack applications. The following X695 switch model is available:


  • 48x 1Gb/10Gb/25Gb SFP28 ports
  • 8 x 10Gb/25Gb/40Gb/50Gb/100Gb QSFP28 ports


The X695 series supports IEEE 802.1 Audio Video Bridging to enable reliable, real-time audio/video transmission over Ethernet. AVB technology delivers the quality of service required for today’s high-definition and time-sensitive multimedia streams.

The X695 can handle a range of high bandwidth applications, including high-density 10Gb/25Gb top of rack aggregation, as well as spine/leaf deployments as an edge leaf switch. It can also flexibly support uplinks at 25Gb, 40Gb, 50Gb, or even 100Gb rates. A range of SFP+ and QSFP+ optical transceivers are available to support 1Gb, 10Gb, and 40Gb Ethernet, while SFP28 and QSFP28 optical transceivers can be used to support 25Gb, 50Gb, and 100Gb Ethernet applications.

The X695 supports either SummitStack-V400 or SummitStack-V160 high speed stacking via its 2 QSFP28 ports. Up to eight (8) X590, X690, X695 or X870 systems can be stacked when using SummitStack-V400. Alternatively, the X695 can cross-stack with X465 systems by using SummitStack-V160. Any of the supported QSFP28 direct attach cables and optical transceivers can be used for the stacking links.

Extreme’s Integrated Application Hosting leverages the X695 operating software and hardware to provide on-switch processing without impacting switching or network performance. This flexible and open solution enables organizations to deploy Extreme-provided and/ or third-party applications and tools directly on the X695 system for monitoring, troubleshooting, or extended network functionality, based on customer need.

Benefits of the Integrated Application Hosting on the X695 include:

  • Flexible deployment of VM-based applications within the network using the hardware resources of the X695
  • Ability of VM-based applications to extract data without disrupting forwarding or control plane traffic
  • Availability of dedicated memory and SSD storage for flexible packet capture and off-line processing

The X695 supports intelligent Layer 2 switching, as well as Layer 3 IPv4/IPv6 routing, including policy-based switching and routing. The X695 can simplify network operation with its ExtremeXOS modular operating system, used across a wide range of Extreme's networking products. The high availability ExtremeXOS operating system reduces operational overhead with a single OS across the network.

The X695 can be centrally managed by ExtremeCloud IQ –Site Engine, which provides a consolidated view of users, devices, and applications for wired and wireless networks. Zero-touch provisioning lets one quickly bring new infrastructure online. A granular view of users, devices, and applications with an easy to understand dashboard enables efficient inventory and network topology management.

The X695 Series can provide insight and intelligence into the network via line-rate, hardware-accelerated sFlow support. With this capability, the X695 can deliver actionable insights into both network and application performance without the need for expensive sensors or collectors.
