Key features

  • Proficient access layer in campus LAN networks, and competent distribution or core layer for midsize organizations networks
  • Advanced Layer 2, Layer 3 and Layer 4 feature set - no license required - including PBR, BGP, DCBX, PFC, ETS and FCoE FIP
  • 1.4 Tbps switching and routing capacity, passive backplane, management and fabric nonstop forwarding redundancy
  • Up to 144 (Gigabit) ports, or 72 (10 Gigabit) ports, or a combination of both in dense form factor models
  • PoE+ (30 watts per port) and UPOE (60 watts per port) modular, flexible implementation
  • Ultra-low latency and scalable table size with 32K MAC, 8K ARP/NDP, 4K VLANs, 12K routes

PoE and UPOE

  • Any Gigabit copper blade can receive PoE+ or UPOE daughter cards for easy upgrade / downgrade and best investment protection
  • Up to 3,000W PoE budget is provided by internal power supplies when 6,000W are available with additional 1U power shelf
  • All set for rapid proliferation of PoE/PoE+ devices, such as IP telephony endpoints, 802.11n / 802.11ac access points and IP security cameras
  • Future-proof 60W UPOE power delivered to next-gen VDI clients or physical security devices; UPOE is backward compatible with PoE/PoE+


  • Advanced classifier-based, time-based hardware implementation for L2 (MAC), L3 (IP) and L4 (UDP/TCP transport ports) security and prioritization
  • Voice VLAN with SIP, H323 and SCCP protocols detection and LLDP-MED IP phones automatic QoS and VLAN configuration
  • Efficient authentication tiering with successive DOT1X, MAB and Captive Portal methods for streamlined BYOD
  • Best-in-class IPv4/IPv6 static and dynamic routing including Proxy ARP, OSPF, BGP, Policy-based routing and automatic 6-to-4 tunneling
  • Enhanced IPv4/IPv6 multicast forwarding with IGMPv3/MLDv2 Querier and Control Packet Flooding protection
  • High performance IPv4/IPv6 multicast routing with PIM timer accuracy and unhandled PIM (S,G,rpt) state machine events transitioning
  • Advanced IPv4/IPv6 security implementation including malicious code detection, DHCP Snooping, IP Source Guard protection and DoS attacks mitigation
  • Innovative multi-vendor Auto-iSCSI capabilities for easier virtualization optimization
  • Datacenter-ready features include DCBX (802.1Qaz), Priority Flow Control (PFC), Enhanced Transmission Selection (ETS) and FCoE FIP Snooping

Resiliency and availability

  • Passive backplane, distributed redundant fabric and redundant management provide hitless, nonstop forwarding failover protection for always-on availability
  • Redundant N+1 power protection contributes to business continuity management
  • Distributed Link Aggregation across all I/O blades allows for multi-resiliency and advanced load balancing capabilities
  • Multi Chassis Link Aggregation (MLAG) between two M6100 switches overcomes limitations of Spanning Tree, increasing bandwidth while preserving redundancy
  • Per VLAN Spanning Tree and Per VLAN Rapid Spanning Tree (PVSTP/PVRSTP) offer interoperability with PVST+ infrastructures
  • Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) provides backup for any statically allocated next-hop router address going down, increasing default path availability


  • DHCP/BootP innovative auto-installation including firmware and configuration file upload automation
  • Industry standard SNMP, RMON, MIB, LLDP, AAA, sFlow and RSPAN remote mirroring implementation
  • Selectable service port for out-of-band Ethernet management (OOB)
  • Selectable standard RS232 straight-through serial RJ45 and Mini-USB ports for local management console
  • Standard USB port for local storage, logs, configuration or image files
  • Dual firmware image and configuration file for updates with minimum service interruption
  • Industry standard command line interface (CLI) for IT admins used to other vendors commands
  • Fully functional Web console (GUI) for IT admins who prefer an easy to use graphical interface
  • Single-pane-of-glass NMS300 management platform with mass-configuration support
