The N10GSM Series Routing Switches are high performance Ethernet switches to meet next generation Metro, Data Center and Enterprise network requirements. N10GSM is designed based on high-end scalable chipset, which support L3/Data Center/Metro features. The N10GSM comes with complete system software with comprehensive protocols and applications to facilitate rapid service deployment and management for
both traditional L3 networks and Data Center networks.
The N10GSM Series offer an effective Ethernet access and aggregation platform to Enterprise, Data Center and Metro application, and distribution of High Definition Uncompressed Video Over IP.
The switches are SDVoE-ready. The platform is designed to handle stacks of up to 288- end points on full unblocked 10G.
The switches even offer link aggregation to support full uncompressed 18G streams

A two-tier design has spine switches at the top tier and leaf switches at the bottom tier with servers/compute/storage always attached to leaf switches at the top of every rack and leaf switches uplink to 2 or more spine switches. The N10GSM is ideal for Spine/Leaf network and scalability as provided by the solution.
