The Enterasys B-series switch is a scalable, high-performance Gigabit Ethernet switch offering support for IEEE 802.3at compliant high-power PoE, flexible 10 Gigabit Ethernet options and enhanced automation capabilities to provide for a future-proofed solution that significantly reduces operational expenses for customers.
Along with a switch capacity of 184 Gbps, the B5 provides up to 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports as well as two 10 GE ports. Leveraging the B5’s stacking capability, as many as 8 B5s (both 24-port and 48-port combinations) can be interconnected in a single stack to create a virtual switch that provides 1.47 Tbps of capacity and up to 384 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports as well as 16 10GE uplink ports.
