Cost-effective open networking Multigigabit Ethernet switches for modernizing and scaling infrastructure

The N2200-ON switch series offers a power-efficient Multigigabit Ethernet network-access switching solution with integrated 25GbE uplinks. With high-performance capabilities and wire-speed performance, utilizing a non-blocking architecture to easily handle unexpected traffic loads, the switches offer simple management and scalability via an 160Gbps (full duplex) high availability stacking architecture that allows management of up to twelve switches from a single IP address. An integrated 80PLUS Platinum certified power supply provides energy efficiency to help decrease power and cooling costs.

Modernize campus network architectures

Modernize campus network architectures with a powerefficient and resilient 1/2.5/25GbE switching solution with 802.3bt Type-3 (60W) Power over Ethernet. PoE ports can deliver clean power to network devices such as wireless access points (APs), Voice-over-IP (VoIP) handsets, video conferencing systems, security cameras, LED luminaries and many more. For greater interoperability in multivendor networks, N2200-ON switches offer the latest openstandard protocols.

Leverage familiar tools and practices

All N-Series switches include Dell EMC Networking OS6, designed for easier deployment, greater interoperability and a lower learning curve for network administrators. One common command line interface (CLI) and graphic user interface (GUI) using a well-known command language gets skilled network administrators productive quickly. With USB auto-configuration, network administrators can rapidly deploy mirrored configurations to numerous devices by simply inserting a USB key. N2200-ON switches also support the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE), enabling installation of alternate network operating systems.

Deploy with confidence at any scale

N2200-ON series switches help create performance assurance with a data rate up to 600Gbps (full duplex) and a forwarding rate up to 833Mpps. Scale easily with built-in rear stacking ports. Switch stacks of up to 624 1/2.5/25GbE ports can be managed from a single screen using the highly-available stacking architecture for high-density aggregation with seamless redundant availability.

N-Series switches help provide certainty with a lifetime warranty that covers software upgrades, hardware repair or replacement, and optics and cables purchased with the switch.*

Purpose-built 24 and 48 port Multi-Gig and Multi-Gig 60W PoE access switches

Built to help keep operating costs down, the N1500 Series can operate at temperatures up to 113°F (45°C) to help reduce cooling costs. Improve your overall efficiency with these great features:

  • Greater Power Over Ethernet capabilities – enable customers to run larger number of powered devices (video surveillance cameras, building automation, lighting, telephone systems and the like) off of the power that our switches provide.
  • Greater choice of Network Operating Systems (OS6, Cumulus, Pica8) from leaders in Open Technologies that provide robust connectivity each with its unique strengths.
  • Newest silicon capabilities, increased downlink bandwidth (2.5GbE), increased uplink bandwidth (25GbE), increased stacking bandwidth (160Gbps).

Enhance employee productivity with better connectivity

  • Modernize existing campus networks to handle modern workloads
  • Facilitate Workforce Transformation and enhance employee productivity with immersive, bandwidth intensive applications
  • Realize the many benefits of IoT and automation with enhanced PoE capabilities that newer Dell EMC PowerSwitch N series deliver
