Product Description

The Dell Networking MXG610s 32G Fibre Channel IO Module for the PowerEdge MX7000 is the right choice for mission-critical applications accessing data on external storage. The MXG610s provides industry-leading performance with the latest generation of Fibre Channel. It empowers enterprises to dynamically scale connectivity and bandwidth with Ports-on-Demand (PoD), provides consolidated management for an agile management structure and simplified server and storage connectivity, and employs a responsive design which protects the enterprise’s infrastructure with inherent security and non-disruptive upgrades to NVMe over Fibre Channel.

The MXG610s is a high-throughput, high-density, low-latency Fibre Channel IO Module purpose-built for the PowerEdge MX7000, optimized for flash storage and highly virtualized server environments.

Dynamically scale, accelerate operations and protected infrastructure

The Dell Networking MXG610s has a flexible architecture which enables enterprises to dynamically scale connectivity and bandwidth with the latest generation of Fibre Channel for the PowerEdge MX7000. The MXG610s offers 16 internal server-facing ports which auto-negotiate between 32 Gbps and 16 Gbps, allowing customers to implement the right bandwidth for their needs today, with the ability to increase that bandwidth in the future with Ports-on-Demand capability. There are 8 external SFP+ ports that operate at 8Gbps, 16Gbps, or 32Gbps speed, and 2 external QSFP+ ports offer 4 ports each operate at 16Gbps or 32Gbps speed. 


Key Fabric Vision features include:
