S7300 is a new generation of full-10GE ToR switches, oriented for high-performance computing, data center and high-end campuses. The S7300 series adopts our most advanced hardware architecture designs. The S7300 series (1U height) supports up to 1.92Tbps switching capacity and 48 10GE ports + 2 40GE ports + 4 100G ports or 72 10GE ports.
S7300 series provides high-performance L2/L3/L4 wire-speed switching capacity by integrating services such as IPv6, VPN, network security, flow analysis, and virtualization, with highly reliable techniques including continuous forwarding, graceful restarting and loop network protection, all of which work efficiency within the S7300 series fabric for guaranteed maximum runtime.
Scenario 1: 40G Aggregation Downlink to 4x 10G Access Solution
Scenario 2: 100G to 100G Direct Connection and Downlink to 10G Access
Cisco QSFP-100G-SR4-S Compatible 100GBASE-SR4 QSFP28 850nm 100m Optical Transceiver Module
1m (3ft) MTP-12 (Female) to MTP-12 (Female) OM4 Trunk Cable, 12 Fibers, Type B, Plenum (LSZH)
Scenario 3: 10G to 10G Direct Connection with Switch Stacking
10G/40G/100G Ports for a Variety of Client Types
10G SFP+ ports for access switches, 40G/100G uplinks for aggregation and core switches.
Applicable to the 3-tier Structure of the Network: Access, Aggregation and Core Layer
The S7300-48X2Q4C is suitable as a switch device at the aggregation layer. The 10G downlink port can be connected to the access layer switch or server, and the 40G/100g uplink port can be connected to the core layer switching device. The traditional 3-tier architecture has extremely high redundancy and is suitable for most large businesses.
