The M4300-96X is the world's only modular solution starting at $100 per port (this is the street price when 96 SFP+ fiber ports and one PSU) and scaling up to 96 ports of 10G Ethernet by multiple of 8 ports, or up to 24 ports of 40G Ethernet by multiple of 2 ports. With 12 open slots and two redundant power supplies, the 96X allows for maximum granularity between copper and fiber and unrivalled headroom for organizations who buy infrastructure for the long term. Better than a fixed port solution, this modular switch lets you start small and grow later in "non-blocking" mode, just by adding port expansion cards. M4300 Spine and Leaf stacking technology with NSF provides world-class services for server and storage interconnect, mid-enterprise edge and SMB core. With the addition of the new 96X model, the M4300 family allows for 768-port 10G, 192-port 40G, 384-port 1G or a combination in one redundant, unstoppable system. More specifically, Spine & Leaf stacking topologies associated with Non-Stop Forwarding (NSF) offer advanced High Availability, hitless failover, zero downtime, East-West and North-South line-rate performance with load-balanced link aggregation from the edge to the core. SDVoE-Ready, M4300-96X streamlines audiovisual display solutions, replacing 24x24 and 48x48 matrix switchers all with one switch, plug and play and ready to grow as per your requirements.
