Dell EMC Networking Z-Series Fabric Switches
High-performance 1/10/25/40/50/100GbE multi-rate open networking xed switch featuring Dell Networking OS9
The Dell EMC Networking Z9100-ON is a 10/25/40/50/100GbE fixed switch purpose-built for applications in high-performance data center and computing environments.
Leveraging a non-blocking switching architecture, the Z9100-ON delivers line-rate L2 and L3 forwarding capacity to maximize network performance. The compact Z9100-ON design provides industry-leading density of either 32 ports of 100GbE, 64 ports of 50GbE, 32 ports of 40GbE, 128 ports of 25GbE or 128 ports 10GbE and two SFP+ ports of 10GbE/1GbE/100MbE to conserve rack space while enabling denser footprints and simplifying migration to 100Gbps in the data center core. Priority-based flow control (PFC), data center bridge exchange (DCBX) and enhanced transmission selection (ETS) make the Z9100-ON ideally suited for DCB environments. In addition, the Z9100-ON incorporates multiple architectural features that optimize data center network flexibility, efficiency and availability, including redundant, hot-swappable power supplies and fans.
These new offerings provide the flexibility to transform data centers and offer high-capacity network fabrics that are easy to deploy, cost-effective and provide a clear path to a software-defined data center. The Dell EMC Z9100-ON supports the industry standard Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) for zero touch installation of alternate network operating systems. This document refers to this ON switch preloaded with the Dell EMC Networking OS. Characteristic of any ONIE device, other ONIE load images may be loaded by the operator.
