Product Overview

Main Features
  • Super-X 8 Slot Chassis
Superior High-Availability

The SuperX switch is a modular 6 rack unit (RU) high stackable switch that provides the enterprise network with a complete end-to-end Enterprise LAN solution, ranging from the wiring closet to the LAN backbone. Designed for medium to large enterprise backbones, the FastIron SuperX can support up to 204 Gigabit Ethernet copper or fiber ports, up to 16 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports, or a combination thereof. The TurboIron SuperX has a fixed configuration of 16 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports.

The FastIron SuperX chassis is a native input card shelf, in which management and interface modules reside. The FastIron SuperX ships with one 12-volt AC power supply. You can install a second for redundancy.

The chassis consists of one full slot for the management module, eight half slots for the interface modules, and power supply slots along the bottom of the card shelf. The power supply slots add an additional rack unit (RU) to the height of the chassis.

Redundant, hot-swappable load-sharing power supplies—
Increase system reliability and circuit redundancy

Separate System and PoE power supplies—Add Power-Over-
Ethernet when needed without impacting the system

Superior Layer 1 Resiliency—Superior Ethernet section and
link and path failure analysis.Link Fault Signaling and Remote Fault Notification instantly alerts connected devices of physical failures. Unidirectional Link Detection detects link layer failures between Foundry switches and detects cable faults.

Superior Layer 2 Redundancy—Virtual Switch Redundancy
Protocol (VSRP),Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) based
on IEEE 802.1w and link aggregation based on IEEE 802.3ad
for rapid convergence, minimal network downtime and minimal
packet loss

Layer 3 Redundancy—VRRP and VRRP-E (Enhanced) for
router redundancy

Hot Swappable I/O modules—Add new ports or migrate to
new media types without affecting other ports in the system

Extensive Spanning Tree Protocol Features—
— Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol based on IEEE 802.1w:
Sub-second convergence using a pre-calculated failover link
— Fast Uplink Span: Four-second convergence on uplink
ports on wiring closet switches
— Single-instance STP: Support for third-party devices
that run a single STP instance in accordance with the
802.1s specification
— Per VLAN Spanning Tree (PVST): Multiple spanning
tree instances within a single system for VLAN load-sharing
and increased network reliability
— Topology Groups: Goes beyond PVGST to scale all
supported Layer 2 control protocols including STP,RSTP,
MRP and VSRP while providing the ability to isolate the
provider from any subscriber-influenced changes

Link Aggregation based on IEEE 802.3ad—Logical links
containing up to four 100Mbps, Gigabit Ethernet or 10-GE
links to scale bandwidth and protect against link, port or interface module failure

Metro Ring Protocol (MRP)—Provides sub-second fault
detection and fail-over specifically for Metro Ethernet ring topologies as an alternative to spanning tree-based designs.MRP works in conjunction with VSRP and 802.3ad based link aggregation to provide bandwidth scalability and SONET-like resiliency in Metro Ethernet networks.

Super Aggregated VLANs (SAV)—Allows service providers
to decouple the provider VLAN domains from customer VLAN
domains.SAV allows the provider to tunnel and preserve the
subscriber VLANs by stacking VLAN tags (Q-in-Q).SAV is
also known as Carrier VLAN.
