Dell’s Most Advanced Switch Offer with Fiber Gigabit EthernetThe PowerConnect 6224F is one of Dell’s most advanced switch offerings with advanced core switching capabilities and all-Fiber connectivity for the small-to-medium, enterprise-network backbone or for long-haul connectivity. This 24-port Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) Layer 3 switch is stackable and offers optional 10 GbE uplinks and supports the latest version of the Internet Protocol — IP version 6 (IPv6) — enabling broader worldwide scalability.
High performance stacking is supported for up to 12 systems, and advanced security and Quality of Service (QoS) features make this switch ideal for applications such as VoIP, Layer 3 routing, High-Performance Cluster Computing (HPPC), and Internet SCSI (iSCSI) storage.
High DensityDelivering significant rack density, the PowerConnect 6224F is designed to give users the flexibility to maximize server and workstation connectivity in a 1U form factor. Up to 576 servers and/or clients can be connected in a stack of 12 62xx series switches to provide the maximum density, flexibility, and manageability. Also, the stack is built on a 10/100/1000 BASE-T GbE switch.
High-Performance StackingThe PowerConnect 6224F supports high-performance stacking for up to 12 systems (each running at 48 Gbps), which allows increased throughput to be added as needed without affecting network performance. With each switch supporting up to 136Gbps in switch capacity, the customer can have almost 3 Terabytes of capacity in a single stack of 12 switches.
Optional 10 Gigabit EthernetThe PowerConnect 6224F switch supports up to four 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks for connectivity directly to 10GE routers, enterprise backbones and data centers.
Advanced Layer 3 CapabilitiesThe PowerConnect 6224F supports advanced Layer 3 routing and multicast protocols to help reduce congestion and manage traffic in the network. Frequently used LAN routing protocols such as Routing Information Protocol (RIP) v1/v2, Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) v2/v3, Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP), Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP), Distant Vector Multicast Routing Protocol (DVMRP), Protocol-Independent Multicast (PIM), and Link Layer Discovery Protocol - Media Endpoint Discovery (LLDP-MED) are also supported.
Advanced QoS The PowerConnect 6224F offers flexibility in Quality of Service (QoS) by giving network administrators the ability to prioritise time-critical network traffic based on a variety of user-defined criteria. Administrators can expedite traffic based on L2 or L3 information, such as IP QoS, and provide greater control over traffic flow within the network. Voice VLANs are provided specifically for VoIP applications
Advanced SecurityUp to 1,024 L2-L4 Access Control Lists (ACLs) can be supported on the switch, allowing the user to perform deep packet inspection. 802.1x port authentication offers both single and multiple host access. Further security is provided through Denial of Service (DoS) Attack Prevention, whereby the switch can help (sorry, I think I forgot to add this edit to the 6248 Copy, please do add it for me) protect against common network attacks and CPU attacks.
IPv6 CertifiedIPv6 is version six of the "Internet Protocol" that has been in development for over 20 years. IPv6 has been designed to address IP address limitations of previous version of the Internet Protocol, enabling an increased number of unique IP addresses for broader scalability worldwide now and in the future.
