Data center architects require high-capacity, high-performance switches at the core of the network to provide the best application performance for users. Dell EMC offers a complete set of data center purpose built Layer 2 and Layer 3 switches that not only provide multi-rate 10/25/40/50/100GbE interfaces but are also part of the open networking innovation supporting multiple Network Operating Systems (NOS) options.

Dell EMC commissioned Tolly to benchmark the overall performance, latency and power consumption of its S4100 Switch Product family, specifically the S4148T-ON (48x10GBASE-T) and the S4148F-ON (48xSFP+) switches. The Dell EMC Open Networking (ON) switches provide 880Gbps of backplane bandwidth and were tested with a full complement of 48 10GbE ports plus four 100GbE ports with over 800MPPS of packet throughput. The systems also support 25/40/50GbE ports.

The Dell EMC switches delivered 100% line-rate RFC2544 and 2889 Layer 2 and Layer 3 throughput running various port-pairing configurations of 10GbE and 100GbE at frame sizes of 128-bytes and greater. Tolly engineers also benchmarked 10GbE and 100GbE Layer 2/Layer 3 latency, power consumption, port buffering as well as route, ARP and MAC table capacities.
