  • Introduction

    Dax Chassis series high performance switches comes in two configurations namely 10 and 4 slot chassis. It supports redundancy for critical modules like Management card (CPU), Power and FAN. The redundancy level for the critical modules helps to eliminate the risk of network down time and make these switches ideal for core deployments in campus networks, enterprise networks and aggregation layer of an IP Metro area Network.

    Dax Chassis supports various types of payload / network modules including 10G, Gigabit, Fast Ethernet and therefore gives the Customer the flexibility to choose modules as per requirement. It supports a maximum of 32 # 10G, 384 Gigabit ports and 13 # 10G, 168 Gigabit ports for 10 and 4 slot chassis respectively.

    Dax chassis supports distributed Architecture that gives wire-speed non-blocking performance with high backplane bandwidth. It comes with the richest software features including MPLS, advanced Quality of Service, IPv6, high security with DOS protection, VLAN, Layer 3 routing features (Ipv4 / Ipv6), SNMP management, Web / CLI based management and configuration etc.

    Supporting maximum of 3.2TB of Backplane bandwidth, the Dax Chassis switches provide wire speed and non-blocking performance on any network. With IPv6 being adopted widely, Dax Chassis switches support Phase II implementation of IPv6. This includes a complete suite of IPv6 management and routing.


    Dax chassis offers zero point of failure by supporting high availability features including redundancy options in Power / CPU / FAN modules. All the mentioned critical modules support hot swap, so that the modules can be replaced without need to power off the chassis. With these features of high redundancy and high reliability, Dax chassis offers 99.9% network uptime.


    Dax Chassis switches support Rapid and Multiple spanning trees as per the IEEE standard. The spanning tree feature helps eliminate network loops. Link aggregation or port aggregation helps combine speeds by bundling multiple links and offering a high speed link catering to the network demand. Dax Chassis switches support MRRP which is a ring protection protocol and aids in reducing network convergence time in a ring topology network. IGMP snooping prevents flooding of IP multicast traffic and limits bandwidth intensive video traffic to selected users.


    Dax Chassis switches support IEEE 802.1X port-based access control and MAC-based access control to ensure all users are authorized before being granted access to the network. Access Control Lists (ACLs) can be used to restrict access to sensitive network resources by denying packets based on L2/L3/L4 header information. Secure Shell (SSH) encrypts network management information via Telnet for secure network management. RADIUS Authentication enables centralized control of the switch and restricts unauthorized users from altering the configuration of the switch. Anti DoS attacks ensures high security to the network.


    Dax Chassis switches deliver hardware based IP routing for both IPv4 and IPv6. RIP v1/v2, OSPF v2 and BGP4 provide dynamic routing by exchanging routing information with other Layer 3 switches and routers. DVMRP, PIM-SM, PIM- DM and PIM-SSM Multicast Routing Protocols send IP multicast traffic from one subnet to another to support maximum data streams. IGMP snooping features forwarding of multicast packets for live streaming of voice and data without any swell in network broadcast congestion. VRRP prevents your system from failing by dynamically backing up multiple L3 switches for routing.


    Dax Chassis switches support MPLS which is widely applied in carrier users. These switches support hardware based MPLS and MPLS VPN with 252 instance support.


    Dax Chassis switches support IPv6 routing in hardware for maximum performance. As the number of network devices increase and the need for larger IP addressing and higher security becomes critical, the Dax Layer 3 Enhanced Gigabit switch is the right product to meet requirements. Besides, the Dax Chassis switches support phase II implementation of Ipv6 with complete routing and management features.Dax Layer 3 Enhanced Gigabit switch is the right product to meet requirements.
