S3800-16F8TF4S Series switches are new-generation smart access for carrier’s IP MAN and enterprise networks, large campuses and enterprise networks. With the new-generation high-performance hardware , S3800-16F8TF4S Series provides users with the longest non-stop communication potential. This also results from it integration with multiple network services and reliable techniques such as IPv6, MPLS VPN, network security, non-stop upgrade, non-stop forwarding, graceful restart-up and redundancy protection.
Advanced Hardware Architecture, and Industry-Leading Process Capacity
A 1U box switch bears 16 gigabit SFP ports, 8 gigabit TX/SFP combo ports and 4 10GE ports. It adopts the high-performance ASIC switch chip, which can meet the requirements of all kinds of complicated application sites.
One S3800-16F8TF4S can support 64K MAC.
S3800-16F8TF4S Series supports BVSS ( Virtual Switch System) which can virtualize multiple devices into one. The performance and the management of the virtualized device is superior to any independent physical device.
Doubled Performance: The virtualization system can make best use of every link among the physical devices, which prevents the block from the STP of the traditional networking model. It reserves the original link investment to the greatest extent.
High Reliability: Based on the advanced distribution processing technique and high-efficient cross-physical device link aggregation function, the logical control surface, the service controal surface and the service data surface can work independently (without mutual
interference) and provide non-stop routing forwarding, which avoid service interruption causing by the single point faults. Thus, the reliability of the virtual system is greatly enhanced.
The whole virtual system realizes single IP management and the physical device is transparent to the user. Subsequently, the management of the device and the network topology is simplified and the maintenance cost is reduced effectively.
Carrier-class High Reliability
Based on HPS (Hitless Protection System), the key components of S3800-16F8TF4S can realize seamless switching in default. For instance, the power supply can expand to dual power supply backup.
S3800-16F8TF4S Series supports STP/RSTP/MSTP protocol, VRRP protocol, Ethernet ring protection, dual uplink primary and secondary link protection, and LACP link aggregation
S3800-16F8TF4S Series supports ISSU (In-Service Software Upgrade) which guarantees the non-stop forwarding of the user data in system upgrade.
S3800-16F8TF4S Series supports ultra-high BFD dual-directional link detection mechanism. Through the linkage of layer-2 and layer-3 protocols, the fault detection and service recovery can be realized in seconds.
S3800-16F8TF4S Series supports Ethernet OAM mechanism, 802.3ah, 802.1ag and ITU-Y.1731. Through real-time monitoring the networking running state, the fault can be fastly detected and located.
S3800-16F8TF4S Series supports the high-reliability design of the software and hardware. Its fault recovery time is 50ms, and its high reliability is up to 99.999%.
