Close

MDS-9148S

The Connectrix MDS-9148S scales from 12 to 48 line-rate 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel ports in a single compact rack-unit form factor, providing high performance with exceptional flexibility at effective cost. The MDS-9148S is an ideal solution for a standalone SAN in small departmental storage environments, a top-of-rack switch in medium-sized redundant fabrics or as an edge switch in larger-scale enterprise data center core-edge topologies. The MDS-9148S delivers speeds of 2, 4, 8 and 16Gb/s, with 16Gb/s of dedicated bandwidth for each port. Individual ports can be configured with either short or long wavelength optics.

MDS-9396S

96-port 16Gb/s Fibre Channel switch

Close

MDS-9396S

The MDS-9396S 16Gb Fibre Channel Fabric Switch is a highly reliable, flexible fabric switch. Combining high performance with exceptional flexibility and cost effectiveness, this powerful, compact two rack-unit (2RU) switch scales from 48 to 96 line-rate Gb/s Fibre Channel ports. For ultimate flexibility, there are two MDS-9396S models to support options for airflow. You can choose port side intake (PSI) where air flows front to back or port side exhaust (PSE) where air flows back to front. Model MDS-9396S-48S-I includes a 48-port base and port side intake whereas model MDS-9396S-48 includes a 48-port base and port side exhaust. Having two MDS-9396S airflow options extends the flexibility for hot/cold aisle network designs.
