Refurbished: Dell PowerConnect 8024F 24-Port 10GbE L2/L3 Switch


The Dell™ PowerConnect™ 8000 Series is a family consisting of two switch models: PowerConnect 8024 and PowerConnect 8024F. These switches are 24-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Layer 3 switches, with four Combo Ports for mixed cabling environments. 

The PowerConnect 8000 Series are Dell’s first all 10 Gigabit 1U Ethernet products. The switches are designed for utilization in a variety of environments such as 10Gb Top-of-Rack switching, 10Gb Aggregation, and Switch Core applications in small to medium data centers. 

Data center performance 
The PowerConnect 8000 Series are high density 10Gb Ethernet switches designed for data center, aggregation, and unified fabric deployments requiring high throughput and availability. These high density 24-port 10Gb switches are ready for converged Ethernet environments supporting virtualization, iSCSI storage, and 10Gb traffic aggregation. The 8000 Series also provides full routing features in a compact 1U form factor with data center friendly front-to-rear cooling. 

Unified fabric ready 
The PowerConnect 8000 Series are one of the key components in Dell Unified Fabric Data Center solutions, and support converged fabric requirements such as Priority Flow Control (802.1Qbb), iSCSI Optimization, and 10Gb wire speed performance on all ports. iSCSI traffic can also be monitored at the fabric level, allowing the administrator to track active iSCSI sessions. 

10 Gb performance and flexibility
The PowerConnect 8000 Series bring the benefits of 10Gb Ethernet to a compact and reliable switching platform, with the quality and great service of Dell. 10Gb Ethernet provides a superior return on IT investment through: 
• Investment Protection – 10Gb Ethernet is the network fabric of the future, with an ever-expanding ecosystem of solutions and the capabilities to grow 
• Energy-Efficient – Replace multiple 1Gb/s components in your infrastructure to reduce power requirements and heat loads. 
• High Performance – 480Gb/s of throughput for wire-speed 10Gb switching
• Migration - Support 1Gb modes on all ports for mixed environments
