SwitchBlade x908 Series


High Performance. High Resiliency.
The Allied Telesis SwitchBlade® x908 industry-leading modular switch is the ideal solution for the modern enterprise network core where resiliency, reliability and high performance are the key requirements.

Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack™) provides excellent resiliency by allowing you to create a single "virtual chassis" from two physical devices. VCStack delivers a resilient core at a fraction of the cost of a full chassis-based system, and it allows you to manage the stack as a single node on the network, greatly simplifying your management tasks.

The SwitchBlade x908 was designed with reliability in mind. With dual power supplies, fan modules and a comprehensive range of expansion modules (XEMs), which are all hot-swappable, you can maintain and reconfigure when necessary without affecting network uptime.

High performance makes the SwitchBlade x908 an ideal core or aggregation device. Enjoy low latency and wirespeed L3 routing in a compact 3 rack unit device. When configured as a virtual chassis, the backplane capacity is a best-in-class 160Gbps.

Each chassis of the SwitchBlade x908 supports up to eight high-speed expansion bays, and is also capable of being stacked.
