Extreme Networks 7100 Series
High Density 10 Gigabit Ethernet Data Center Switch

Extreme Networks 7100 Series

Sorry, this product is no longer available, please contact us for a replacement.



The Extreme Networks 7100-Series is a family of high density, high-performance 1 Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches that are ideally suited for the demands of today's Enterprise data center and high performance LAN Edge applications. The 7100-Series is an ideal fit for support of the high bandwidth applications in today's Enterprise networks.

The 7100-Series offers flexible connectivity options using modular SFP, SFP+ transceivers and Direct Attach Cables as well as options for integrated Gigabit copper and 10GBASE-T. Also supported are 10/100Mb, Gigabit, 10 Gigabit, and 40 Gigabit ports. Up to 64 line rate 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports can be supported in a single rack unit configuration, maximizing the space available for servers and storage in dense data center Top of Rack (ToR) applications. Configurable air flow allows for adaptation to the specific hot-aisle / cold-aisle configuration of your data center.

The 7100-Series 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches are available in the following configurations:

  • 7148 - 48 ports 1/10Gb SFP+ with 4 10/40Gb QSFP+ ports
  • 7124 - 24 ports 1/10Gb SFP+ with 4 10/40Gb QSFP+ ports
  • 7148T - 48 ports 1/10GBASE-T with 4 10/40Gb QSFP+ ports
  • 7124T - 24 ports 1/10GBASE-T with 4 10/40Gb QSFP+ ports

All systems support redundant modular power supplies and fan modules and Extreme Networks Virtual Switch Bonding to configure highly available system configurations for mission critical data center environments.

The 7100-Series is an integral element of the Extreme Networks OneFabric network architecture. OneFabric is designed to help enterprises maintain an integrated end user experience while migrating towards a virtualized network environment.

Virtualization awareness addresses the need for visibility and awareness as virtual servers get deployed and adapt to Virtual Machine mobility. Data Center Bridging effectively supports the convergence of LAN I/O and storage traffic in the data center fabric. High performance virtual switching increases the available bandwidth in the data center and enables resilient network topologies to servers and aggregation switches. Higher aggregated capacity enables data centers to effectively scale with lower latency and higher levels of availability.

Management integration and automation enables a high degree of visibility and control of critical data center resources, providing a consistent edge-to-core network implementation. Bandwidth and priority policies can be centrally provisioned, delivering a consistent implementation across the network.
