NA226400 Hybrid Networking Application Switch

Silicom Hybrid Networking Application Switch with E5-2600 v3 Haswell Processor, combines Intel Network switching in a standard rack mount server chassis. It includes Main Switching Board, built around the Intel® Alta chip set with up to 44 SFP I/Os.

The switch is based on Intel® FM6000 family placed on the Main Switching Board, while the Host interface is implemented as PCIe device, based on the Intel XL710 Network controller set located on the PCIe.

Silicom Networking Application Switch brings highest industry standard server grade reliability, while enabling high versatility with configurable I/O port options.
