LENOVO FLEX SYSTEM FABRIC CN4093 10GB SWITCH
– Abstract- The Flex System Fabric CN4093 10Gb Converged Scalable Switch provides unmatched scalability- port flexibility- Introduction- The Flex System Fabric CN4093 10Gb Converged Scalable Switch provides unmatched scalability port flexibility performance convergence and network virtualization while also delivering innovations to help address a number of networking concerns today and providing capabilities that will help you prepare for the future. The switch offers full Layer 2/3 switching as well as FCoE Full Fabric and Fibre Channel NPV Gateway operations to deliver a truly converged integrated solution and it is designed to install within the I/O module bays of the Flex System Enterprise Chassis. The switch can help clients migrate to a 10 GbE or 40 GbE converged Ethernet infrastructure and offers virtualization features like Virtual Fabric and VMready- – Supported transceivers and cables- With the flexibility of the CN4093 switch clients can take advantage of the technologies that they require for multiple environments:- For 1 GbE links clients can use RJ-45 SFP transceivers with UTP cables up to 100 m. Clients that need longer distances can use a 1000BASE-SX transceiver which can drive distances up to 220 meters by using 62.5 µ multi-mode fiber and up to 550 meters with 50 µ multi-mode fiber or the 1000BASE-LX transceivers that support distances up to 10 kilometers using single-mode fiber (1310 nm).- – For 10 GbE (supported on external SFP+ ports) you can use SFP+ direct attach copper (DAC) cables for in-rack cabling and distances up to 7 m (up to 5 m for Omni Ports). These DAC cables have SFP+ connectors on each end and they do not need separate transceivers. For longer distances the 10GBASE-SR transceiver can support distances up to 300 meters over OM3 multimode fiber or up to 400 meters over OM4 multimode fiber. The 10GBASE-LR transceivers can support distances up to 10 kilometers on single mode fiber.
