Overview:

High-performance open networking top-of-rack switches with multirate Gigabit Ethernet and unified ports

The S4100-ON 10GbE switches comprise DellTechnologies’ latest disaggregated hardware and software data center networking solutions, providing state-of-the-art 100GbE uplinks, fibre channel connectivity and a broad range of functionality to meet the growing demands of today’s data center environment. These innovative, next-generation top-of-rack open networking switches offer optimum flexibility and cost-effectiveness for the enterprise, midmarket and tier 2 cloud service providers with demanding compute and storage traffic environments.

The compact S4100-ON models provide industry-leading density with up to 48 ports of 10GbE or up to 48 ports of 10GBaseT ports, 2 ports of 40GbE and 4 ports of 100GbE in a 1RU form factor. The S4148U-ON model can support up to 28 8/16G fibre channel ports, or 16 ports of 32G* fibre channel ports. The S4112-ON is a half-rack width model that supports up to 12 ports of 10GbE or 12 ports 10GBaseT, and 3 ports of 100GbE.

Using industry-leading hardware and a choice of Dell EMC SmartFabric OS10 or select 3rd party network operating systems and tools, the S4100-ON Series offers flexibility by provision of configuration profiles and delivers non-blocking performance for workloads sensitive to packet loss. The compact S4100-ON models provide multirate speed, enabling denser footprints and simplifying migration to 100Gbps. Also unique to the S4100- ON series is the ability to meet the demands of converged and virtualized data centers by offering unified ports (S4148U) and hardware support for L2 and L3 VXLAN Gateway. Priority-based flow control (PFC), data center bridge exchange (DCBX) and enhanced transmission selection (ETS) make the S4100-ON ideally suited for DCB environments. Dell EMC PowerSwitch S4100-ON switches support the open source Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) for zero touch installation of Dell EMC SmartFabric OS10 networking operating system, as well as of alternative network operating systems.

Maximum performance and functionality

The S4100-ON series are high-performance, multifunction, 1/10/25/40/50/100 GbE and 8/16/32G FC top-of-rack (ToR) switches purpose-built for applications in high-performance data center, cloud and computing environments. Architectural features to optimize data center network flexibility, efficiency and availability include IO panel to PSU airflow or PSU to IO panel airflow for hot/cold aisle environments and redundant, hot-swappable power supplies and fans.
