Product Description

The Dell EMC Networking MX7116n Fabric Expander Module is a key component in the MX Scalable Fabric Architecture. This module transparently extends the networking capabilities of the MX9116n Fabric Switching Engine to multiple PowerEdge™ MX7000 chassis, providing high-performance networking at a low TCO.

Maximum scalability

The MX7116n extends the capabilities of the MX9116n Fabric Switching Engine to a total of ten MX7000 chassis and 80 PowerEdge MX compute sleds. In addition to 16 internal 25GbE ports, the MX7116n provides two QSFP28-Double Density uplink ports. Each QSFP28-DD port provides capacity for eight 25GbE connections from PowerEdge MX compute sleds for a total of 200GbE of bandwidth per QSFP28-DD cable, and 400GbE bandwidth per MX7116n.

Zero-touch management

The MX7116n does not run an operating system or have firmware that requires frequent updating to keep “in sync” with the Fabric Switching Engine. It is transparently managed by the MX7000 infrastructure and does not require user configuration.

Performance and latency

The non-blocking switching architecture in the MX9116n Fabric Switching Engine provides line-rate 25GbE L2 and L3  forwarding capacity to all connected servers. The MX7116n extends that capability to an additional MX7000 chassis, adding less than 75ns of latency for a total of less than 600ns latency between any two compute sleds in a Scalable Fabric.
