Foundry Networks Inc. has added a compact 8-port 10GbE switch to its EdgeIron family of Layer 2 Ethernet switches.

With a nonblocking 160Gbps Ethernet switch design and wire-speed 10GbE forwarding performance on every port, the EdgeIron 8X10G switch is suitable for small enterprise backbone, as well as high performance cluster and grid computing interconnect networks.

Consistent with the existing EdgeIron family of Layer 2 switches, the new EdgeIron 8X10G switch features an advanced suite of standards-based Layer 2 switching features and services, redundant power supplies, and industry standard CLI.

The switch supports wire-speed switching on eight 10GbE ports in a compact one rack-unit (1U) form factor, and uses 10Gb Small Form Factor Pluggable (XFP) optical transceivers. Delivering performance of nearly 120MPPS, the EdgeIron 8X10G switch is expected by the company to be the highest performance, nonblocking 10GbE switch in its class.

It also supports important security features including secure Web access, secure Telnet sessions and SNMPv3 to secure and encrypt management transactions. In addition, the EdgeIron 8X10G switch features extensive Layer 2/3 access control and MAC address filtering to secure application traffic.
