Delivering exceptional price/performance for growing SAN workloads

48 ports produce an aggregate 768 Gbps full-duplex throughput; any eight ports can be trunked for 128 Gbps Inter-Switch Links (ISLs).

Exchange-based Dynamic Path Selection (DPS) optimizes fabric-wide performance and load balancing by automatically routing data to the most efficient available path in the fabric.

It augments ISL trunking to provide more effective load balancing in certain configurations.
