Brookhaven National Labs Selects Force10

The U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Labs has selected Force10 Networks' ExaScale family of virtualized switch/routers to help power its network. ExaScale was chosen largely based on its industry-leading density and performance characteristics, which are required to satisfy the needs of its ongoing scientific research as well as the day-to-day operations of its campus LAN. Force10's ExaScale E-Series offers support for 140 line-rate 10 GbE SFP+ ports per chassis. In addition to capacity, the E1200 delivers an total throughput of more than two billion packets per second across a switching fabric capacity of up to 3.5 Tbps or 250 Gbps full duplex per slot.
