Dell PowerConnect 7048P Switch

PowerConnect 7048P Switch

Help quickly deploy efficient Layer 3 gigabit switching with PowerConnect™ 7048P, featuring PoE+, robust security and high-availability stacking and management. With 48 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports for wire-speed switching, the 7048P is designed to scale with your network as it grows.

  • High throughput: Supports wire-speed performance with up to 48 ports of GbE and optional 4x 10GbE uplink ports and/or stacking at 64Gbps of bandwidth.
  • Scalable with high availability: Manages up to 12 wire-speed switches as a single unit, each with redundant power and fan options.
  • Energy conscious: Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) architecture helps reduce power to ports in sleep mode or cut power to inactive ports while the 80 PLUS-certified power supply lowers overall power and cooling costs.

High performance

Help meet your network switching needs, no matter how large your organization, with the PowerConnect 7048P. It features 48 ports of wire-speed L3 GbE plus robust security and enterprise management capabilities. USB configuration for rapid deployment, dedicated 64GB stacking interfaces and 10GB uplinks help you grow your wiring closets with your network.

Stack up to 12 switches (managed as a single unit) for high-performance availability and failover deployments, including those with PowerConnect™ M6348 high-density 48-port I/O modules for the PowerEdge™ M1000E blade enclosure.

iSCSI optimization

Help save time when configuring your iSCSI SAN. PowerConnect 7000 series switches automatically detect EqualLogic arrays and configure the switch for iSCSI environments, at both global and port levels. The 7000 series also provides information about all active iSCSI sessions to help enable easier management and optimization.

VoIP functionality

Help ensure that Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) traffic is prioritized, in the event of resource contention, through the voice VLAN function. LLDP-MED provides detailed network topology records, troubleshooting data and emergency call service via IP phone
Robust management

Rapid deployment and configuration

Help save deployment time and costs by simplifying your network rollout with PowerConnect 7000 series Gigabit Ethernet switches. Use local USB to easily assign switch configuration, updates and addressing during initial rollout. You can also choose alternative auto-configuration options, such as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).

Robust management

You'll enjoy a number of management options with PowerConnect 7000 Series switches, including:
  • A powerful and industry-standard command-line interface
  • Remote management using an embedded web server
  • Support for SNMP-based management applications
  • Managing up to 600 ports from a single IP address in a stack of multiple 7000 series switches

Automated security

Select from multiple security levels, with options that include such enterprise-class features as:
  • SSH/SSL management encryption
  • DHCP snooping
  • IP and MAC-based ACLs
  • Access password protection
  • Port-based MAC address alert and lockdown

High-level security is provided through:
  • RADIUS remote authentication for switch management access
  • 802.1x authentication and TACACS+
  • Management access filtering via management access profiles
PowerConnect 7000 switches can also help simplify security rollouts by enabling you to try implementation before full enforcement is enabled. This can help smoothen your transition to a secure network for your enterprise.

Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+)

Help lower power consumption with the Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3at) capabilities of the PowerConnect 7048P. It can provide up to 30.8 Watts of power for such network-attached devices as WLAN access points and VoIP handsets.

PoE+ helps simplify network installation and maintenance by reducing the need for power adapters and power planning.
