Tahoe 2948 Family

High density 48, 24, 16, and 8-port 10GE managed switches
  • Supports Layer 2, 3, and 4
  • 10GE/1GE networks via SFP+ or SFP connectors

Tahoe 2948 family is a high port density 10 Gigabit SFP+ specialized switch family. The Tahoe 2948 family supports layer 2/3/4 10 Gigabit Ethernet enterprise and datacenter capabilities including advanced switching and routing, Layer 2 switching, IP v4/v6 routing, QoS support and management capabilities. The family is built for optimal flexibility enabling multi-mode or single mode fiber media configuration and connectivity to 10GE or 1GE networks via SFP+ or SFP connectors. The family possesses management functionality that can be utilized via an extensive web GUI or CLI which enables flexibility and multiple configurations.

The family supports 4 configurations including, Tahoe 2948, a 48 SFP+ port version, Tahoe 2924, a 24 SFP+ port version, Tahoe 2916, a 16 SFP+ port version and Tahoe 2908, an 8 port SFP+ port version. Each port has support for a variety of SFP modules and cables including SFP+ SR, SFP+ LR, SFP+ ER, SFP-SX, SFP-LX, SFP-TX and direct attached cabling.
