Force10 Networks, a global technology player that data center, service provider and enterprise customers rely on when the network is their business, announced an end-to-end 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40 GbE) solution designed to bring increased performance while delivering network simplicity to converged data centers. For the data center edge, Force10 is launching the S-Series S4810 10/40 GbE top-of-rack (ToR) switch, while for the network core, it is announcing the new 40 GbE line card for its ExaScale virtualized core switch/router.

This new core-to-edge solution also incorporates the Force10 Open Automation Framework and leverages its ability to improve network flexibility, availability and manageability while reducing operational expenses in virtualized data center environments through network automation.

The S4810 10/40 GbE ToR switch is purpose-built for applications in data center and computing environments that require the highest bandwidth and lowest latency. Leveraging a non-blocking, cut-through switching architecture, the S4810 delivers line-rate Layer 2 and Layer 3 forwarding capacity with ultra low latency to maximize network performance. The compact S4810 design provides 48 dual-speed 1/10 GbE ports as well as four 40 GbE uplinks to conserve valuable rack space.

The S4810 will begin shipping to customers by the end of this quarter. The 40 GbE line card for the ExaScale virtualized core switch/router will ship to customers in the first half of 2011.
