DM4370
10GE Access Switch

The DM4370 Ethernet Switch is a compact, high performance access switch ready for the growing migration of access services towards 10 Gbps. The switch is based on Datacom’s modular network operating system DmOS, with support for a complete L2/L3 feature set including MPLS support, turning it into the perfect fit for high bandwidth and high value enterprise or mobile backhaul access applications. The switch contains 4 optical SFP+ based 10GE interfaces, 4 optical SFP-based 1GE interfaces and 4 additional 1GE electrical interfaces.

The DM4370 switch is 1U height and it can be installed both on desktops or standard 19" rack, with a mechanical adapter holding up to two switches side by side. The product has an integrated  full-range AC/DC power supply module and an additional 12V DC input for optional power redundancy for high availability services and operation.
