Dell PowerConnect PC6224 / TK308 / 0TK308 / RN856 / 0RN856 - 24 Port Gigabit Switch - Brand New

The PowerConnect 6200 series is Dell’s most advanced switching product line, offering advanced switching capabilities including high-density, high-performance stacking and 10 Gigabit Ethernet capabilities scalable from the small business to the Enterprise Edge.

High Density

The PowerConnect 6200 series offers versions with 24 and 48 ports of 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet. The PowerConnect 6248 and 6224 series switches support up to four 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks for connectivity directly to 10GE routers, servers, enterprise backbones and data centers. Delivering significant rack density, the PowerConnect 6200 gives users the flexibility to maximize server and workstation connectivity in a 1U form factor. Up to 576 servers and/or clients can be connected in a stack of 6200 series switches to help provide the maximum density, flexibility and manageability.

High-performance Stacking

The PowerConnect 6200 series supports high-performance resilient stacking for up to twelve systems, which allows increased throughput to be added as needed without affecting network performance. With each switch supporting up to 184 Gbps in switch capacity, the customer can have almost 2 Terabits of capacity in a single stack!

10 Gigabit Ethernet

The PowerConnect 6200 series switches support up to four 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks for connectivity directly to 10GE routers, servers, enterprise backbones and data centers.

Gigabit Fiber Conectivity

The PowerConnect 6224F offers up to 24 Fiber GbE ports for the small to medium enterprise network backbone or long-haul connectivity.

Advanced Layer 3 Capabilities

The PowerConnect 6200 series supports advanced Layer 3 routing and multicast protocols to help reduce congestion and manage traffic in the network. The PowerConnect 6200 series supports frequently used LAN routing protocols such as RIPv1/v2, OSPFv2/v3, VRRP, IGMP, DVMRP, PIM and LLDP-MED.

Advanced QoS

The PowerConnect 6200 offers flexibility in Quality of Service (QoS) by giving network administrators the ability to prioritize time-critical network traffic based on a variety of user-defined criteria. Administrators can expedite traffic based on L2 or L3 information to provide greater control over traffic flow within the network.

Advanced Security

Support for L2-L4 Access Control Lists (ACLs) on the switch allows the user to perform deep packet inspection. 802.1x port authentication offers both single and multiple host access. Further security is provided through Denial of Service (DoS) Attack Prevention, whereby the switch can protect against common network attacks, such as Blat, Land, Smurf, Ping of Death, Xmascan, Nullscan, Scan SYNFIN, in addition to CPU attacks, such as VLAN flooding, TCP SIM, TCP port scan, IP address spoofing and MAC address spoofing.

IPv6 Ready

IPv6 is version six of the “Internet Protocol” that has been in development for over 20 years. IPv6 has been designed to address IP address limitations of previous version of the Internet Protocol, enabling an increased number of unique IP addresses for broader scalability worldwide now and in the future.

Value and Flexibility

The PowerConnect™ 6200 series offers additional value because the unique modular design allows you to upgrade to advanced stacking or 10 Gigabit Ethernet only when you need it. Plus the 6200 series offers further flexibility and value with optional modules that allow for either 10 Gigabit optical or CX-4 copper interfaces, or both, based on your needs.
