Extreme Networks unveiled its new Summit X650, a 24-port non-blocking 10 Gigabit fixed switch aimed at next gen data centers. The Summit X650 is a purpose-built, top-of-rack 1 RU switch, with up to 32 10 Gigabit ports on a single system, or up to 256-ports in a stacked system. The Summit X650 supports switch stacking with total throughput performance of 512 Gbps. It also features the ExtremeXOS Operating System -- a modular OS that is consistent with Extreme Networks core, aggregation and edge switches.
