This article will introduce the QSFPTEK S7600 series enterprise switches in detail, including, specifications, features, functions, and applications, you may get more confirmation when selecting the best network switch.

The QSFPTEK S7600 series Layer 3 switches are equipped with two hot-swappable power supplies and varying amounts of intelligent fans that automatically adjust their speed to control noise and power consumption. Furthermore, the S7600 series enterprise switches offer robust switching and forwarding capabilities to meet high-speed network requirements. As Layer 3 switches, the S7600 series managed Ethernet switches provide full Layer 3 functions, including MLAG, NVGRE, VXLAN, GENEVE, PFC, ECN, and more. These managed Ethernet switches are widely used in the next-generation enterprise, data center, metro, and HCI (hyper-converged infrastructure) networks.

S7600 Series Enterprise Switches Overview
S7600 Series Layer 3 Switch Specification


For high-reliability and high-density network solutions, there are five modules to choose from S7600 series, including the S7600-24Y4C, S7600-24X2Q, and S7600-24X2C are 24 ports switches, and the S7600-48X8C and S7600-48Y8C  both designed as 48-port switches. Let us fully commit to exploring the S7600 series high-end enterprise switches now. The following specifications highlight the capabilities of these S7600 series managed Ethernet switches.

S7600 Series Enterprise Switches Advanced Features


MLAG: S7600 series enterprise switch features MLAG functionality, allowing for the creation of a logical link aggregation group across multiple physical switches. That means two or more switches are connected as a single logical switch while still operating independently of each other. If the master switch reports an error, another switch is automatically selected as the new link to ensure normal transmission, thus way, increasing network resilience and simplifying network management, providing higher bandwidth and load-balancing capabilities. Please refer to the diagram below, the two S7600-48X8C switches connect as one MLAG part through a peer link.


VXLAN: The S7600 Series Layer 3 managed switches support  VXLAN (Virtual Extensible Local Area Network)  protocol which creates the extension of virtual networks beyond the VLAN cap limits of the data center network. enabling large-scale dynamic VM migration and allowing greater virtual isolation for a large number of tenants. 


VRRP: S7600  series enterprise switches also come with modern VRRP functions, enabling a group of routers to act as a single virtual router. The benefit of this protocol is that even if the master router fails, one of the backup routers will take over as the new hoster router and continue forwarding packets. This greatly improves failover capability and ensures network reliability.

IPv6 : S7600 series campus network switches support the latest version of the Internet Protocol IPv6, which is able to provide a larger address space, allowing for a significantly larger number of unique IP addresses compared to traditional IPv4. Features such as built-in encryption and authentication are also supported, which helps to improve the security of the Internet. In addition, it provides better support for features such as quality of service (QoS) and multicast, which are important for applications such as video streaming and online gaming.


FAQs on S7600 Series Enterprise Switches

Hardware Configuration


Q: What ports do S7600 series L3 switches come with?
A: S7600-24Y4C, S7600-24X2Q, and S7600-24X2C are  24 ports switch, and S7600-48X8C, S7600-48Y8C are 48 ports switch, providing 1G/10G/25G/40G/100G high-capacity and high-flexible Interface combination to meet different network requirements.


Q: What's the S7600 series data center switches power supply and fan configuration?

A: All these S7600 series switches are equipped with  1+1 redundant power supply. S7600-24X2C and S7600-24X2Q come with 2+1 Redundancy Built-in fans, and the rest three models S7600-48Y8C, S7600-48X8C, S7600-24Y4C, 4 hot-pluggable fans available.


Q: What’s the temperature grade of S7600 series enterprise switches?

A: The S7600 series data center switches work normally with a temperature range from 0°to 45°C.


Q: What is the airflow direction of the S7600 series data center network switches?

A: All S7600 series switches are equipped with front-to-back airflow. However, the S7300 series uses left-to-right airflow.


Additional Functions

Q: Do all  S7600 series ethernet switches support MLAG? MLAG vs Stacking, what’s the difference?

A: Yes, of course, all QSFPTEK 7600 series switches support MLAG to improve network redundancy and flexibility, typically, MLAG technology supports 2 switches for connection and allows upgrade without interruption, while our S5300 series switches support up to 8 switches for stacking, and the upgrade may cause an interruption of 1-2 minutes.


Q: Is IPv6 technology available with S7600 series managed switches?

A: Yes, all these five model switches support the latest IPv6 protocol, providing 4096 IPV6 router addresses and handling packets more efficiently by multicast.


Q: What is RDMA ? and how does it work?

A: RDMA allows data to be transferred directly between hosts, Priority-based Flow Control (PFC) without CPU processing, providing high throughput and ultra-low latency by reducing CPU load. As shown below, the servers communicate round away from the CPU.
