CX911 introduction

The CX911 includes two independent physical switching planes: 10GE switching plane and FC switching plane.

10GE L2/L3 switching plane:
? Provides 32 x 10GE downlink ports (each half-width slot: 2 x 10GE) and 16 x 10GE uplink ports.
? Provides 2 x 40GE ports that are connected to the midplane for interconnecting or stacking modules.
? Supports stacking. (The version delivered in 2013 does not support L3 switching and stacking. If these functions are required, you can upgrade the software.)

FC switching plane:
? Supports 16 x 8G FC downlink ports (each half-width slot: 1 x 8G FC port) and 8 x 8G FC uplink ports.
? Port rate: 2G/4G/8G auto-negotiation
? Its FC switch module is an ODM product from Qlogic, and supports the switching mode and NPV mode.
? In switching mode, the FC switch module can be directly attached to an FC storage device.
? In switching mode, the FC switch module can communicate with the FC switch from Qlogic using the E-Port.
? In NPV mode, the FC switch module can communicate with an FC SAN switch from another vendor.
? In NPV mode, the FC switch module can communicate with an FC SAN switch from Qlogic.

The two CX911s in a pair of slots can operate independently, in 1+1 redundancy mode, or in load sharing mode by working with the OS and NICs.
