M7100: The Latest Advances in Hardware and Software Engineering for Higher Availability, Lower Latency and Stronger Security, at a High-value Price Point.

The 10 Gigabit M7100 series consists of a fully managed, low-latency, line-rate 10G Copper "Base-T" switch solution—with 24 ports 10GBase-T (RJ45) that support Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit speeds for server, storage and network progressive upgrade. It includes 4 ports SFP+ that broaden 10 Gigabit connectivity for 1G/10G fiber uplinks and other DAC connections.

M7100 series is ideal for all organizations considering reliable, affordable and simple 10 Gigabit Ethernet Top-of-Rack server access layer; and high-density, high-performance 10GbE backbone architectures.

  • Layer 2+ with static routing

  • 10 Gigabit transition with Base-T

  • Top-of-the-line performance and IPv6 ready

  • Top-of-rack availability

  • Industry standard management

  • Industry leading warranty

Key Features

  • 24 ports copper 10GBase-T / 4 ports SFP+

  • Backward compatible Gigabit and Fast Ethernet

  • Line-rate for virtualization and convergence

  • Innovative multi-vendor Auto-iSCSI optimization

  • Dual redundant PSUs / Fan trays

  • Designed for top-of-rack and distribution


  • Layer 3 hardware with L2+ software affordability

  • Built upon L3 hardware platform while Layer 2+ software package allows for better budget optimization

  • Uses latest generation silicon low-power 40-nanometer technology

  • L2 and L3 switching features (access control list, classification, filtering, IPv4 routing) are performed in hardware at interface line rate for voice, video, and data convergence

  • Layer 2+ software package provides straight forward IP static routing capabilities for physical interfaces, VLANs and subnets

  • 16K MAC address table, 1K concurrent VLANs and 64 static routes for SMB and small enterprise access layers

  • Increased packet buffering with up to 12 Mb dynamically shared accross all interfaces for most intensive applications

  • Low latency at all network speeds

  • Jumbo frames support of up to 9Kb accelerating storage performance for backup and cloud applications

  • Broad portfolio of access layer solutions, ranging from 8 ports Fast Ethernet to 50 ports Gigabit Ethernet


  • Large 10 Gigabit choice for access with 10GBase-T ports for legacy Cat6 RJ45 short connections (up to 300m) and Cat6A / Cat 7 connections up to 100m; and SFP+ ports for fiber optic uplinks or short, low-latency copper DAC cables

  • Automatic MDIX and Auto-negotiation on all ports select the right transmission modes (half or full duplex) as well as data transmission for crossover or straight-through cables dynamically

  • 100Mbps and 1000Mbps backward compatiblity on all 10GBase-T RJ45 ports

  • 1000Mbps backward compatibility on all SFP+ fiber port

  • IPv6 support with multicasting (MLD for IPv6 filtering), ACLs and QoS

Ease of Use

  • Fully functional Web console (GUI) for IT admins who prefer an easy to use graphical interface

  • Placement outside the wiring closet (conference rooms, offices, class rooms, sales floor in retail stores, etc

  • For secure deployment in open areas , desktop versions come with a Wall Mount Kit with four bracket

  • Select desktop versions also come with a set of strong magnets for mounting on any metal surface

  • Automatic configuration with DHCP and BootP Auto Install

  • Both the Switch Serial Number and Switch primary MAC address are reported by a simple "show" command in the CLI

  • Automatic Voice over IP prioritization with Auto-VoIP

  • An associated Voice VLAN can be easily configured with Auto-VoIP for further traffic isolation

  • When deployed IP phones are LLDP-MED compliant, the Voice VLAN will use LLDP-MED to pass on the VLAN ID, 802.1P priority and DSCP values to the IP phones, accelerating convergent deployments

  • Dual firmware image and configuration file for updates with minimum service interruption


  • Traffic control MAC Filter and Port Security

  • DHCP Snooping monitors DHCP traffic between DHCP clients and DHCP servers to filter harmful DHCP message and prevent DHCP spoofing attacks

  • IP source guard and Dynamic ARP Inspection for malicious users traffic elimination

  • Layer 2 / Layer 3-v4 / Layer 3-v6 / Layer 4 Access Control Lists (ACLs) can be binded to ports, Layer 2 interfaces, VLANs and LAGs (Link
  • Aggregation Groups or Port channel) for fast unauthorized data prevention and right granularity

  • Bridge protocol data unit (BPDU) Guard allows the network administrator to enforce the Spanning Tree (STP) domain borders and keep the active topology consistent and predictable - unauthorized devices or switches behind the edge ports that have BPDU enabled will not be able to influence the overall STP topology by creating loops

  • Spanning Tree Root Guard (STRG) enforces the Layer 2 network topology by preventing rogue root bridges potential issues when for instance, unauthorized or unexpected new equipment in the network may accidentally become a root bridge for a given VLAN

  • Dynamic 802.1x VLAN assignment mode, including Dynamic VLAN creation mode and Guest VLAN / Unauthenticated VLAN are supported for rigorous user and equipment RADIUS policy server enforcement

  • 802.1x MAC Address Authentication Bypass (MAB)

  • Double VLANs (DVLAN - QoQ) pass traffic from one customer domain to another through the "metro core" in a multi-tenancy environment Private VLANs (with Primary VLAN, Isolated VLAN, Community VLAN, Promiscuous port, Host port, Trunks) provide Layer 2 isolation between ports that share the same broadcast domain

  • Secure Shell (SSH) and SNMPv3 (with or without MD5 or SHA authentication) ensure SNMP and Telnet sessions are secured

  • TACACS+ and RADIUS enhanced administrator management provides strict "Login" and "Enable" authentication enforcement for the switch configuration and authentication based on user domain in addition to user ID and password
