Next-generation open networking is a key element of enterprise data centers. High-performance and high-density are mandatory characteristics for aggregation switches. Dell Inc. offers a complete set of data center purpose built Layer 2 and Layer 3 switches that not only provide 100GbE and 400GbE ports but are also part of the open networking innovation supporting multiple Network Operating Systems (NOS) options.
Dell Inc. commissioned Tolly to benchmark the overall performance, latency and power consumption of its Dell PowerSwitch Z9664F-ON, an aggregation switch offering up to 64x 400GbE ports.
The PowerSwitch Z9664F-ON delivered 100% line-rate RFC2544 Layer 2 and Layer 3 throughput with all 64x 400GbE ports in a snake topology at frame sizes of 512-bytes and greater. Tolly engineers also benchmarked Layer 2/Layer 3 latency, power consumption as well as MAC/FIB table capacities.Login Sign-up
