The ONPATH 2900 series packet flow switch is a highly scalable physical layer switching system with universal module slots, designed to accommodate a variety of high-performance connectivity and monitoring applications. The system includes a fully redundant architecture with hot-swappable, field replaceable parts for the industry’s highest availability and help network managers conserve time, increase utilization, and save money compared to manual patching or complex mesh switching architectures. Read about NetScout’s key advantages.
NetScout’s patented 3-stage switching technology is the heart of the 2900 series, providing a highly scalable and reliable switching system of up to 4,096 non-blocking and over 100,000 meshed ports. The HorizON management software offers security and integrated diagnostics to simplify connectivity management with point-and-click provisioning and full remote control of the 2900 series.
Key Features and Benefits
- Scalable from 32 to 4,096 non-blocking ports
- Port speed flexibility ranging from <1Mbps to >1Gbps
- Application flexibility from Ethernet to 10GE per port
- Fully redundant, modular design for high availablity
The modular architecture of the ONPATH 2900 Series enables a “pay-as-you-grow” model for the ultimate in flexibility and scalability. Each of the 2900 series chassis is designed to support the capacity needed per application or site.
The protocol independence of the 2900 series enables protocol support across a wide range of data.
The ONPATH 2900 series is fully compatible with the legacy interfaces associated with CCUs installed in the TELENEX 2700 switching systems. Interfaces such as RS-232, Ethernet, EIA 530, and T-1 can connect directly to a 422 PIM using existing DC64 cables and C3U chassis. The 2900 series offers legacy infrastructure investment protection and provides a clear path to current and future high-speed copper and optical connectivity requirements.
