Layer 3 box-type switchesAX3600S Series

The AX3600S Series Switches are Gigabit Ethernet layer 3 switches suitable as a core or distribution switch in campus and branch office LANs.
The AX3650S Models are high-end stackable switches supporting virtualization(VRF).
The AX3640S Models are standalone switches with the standard layer 3 functions.

AX3600S

AX3650S: High-end stackable switches
Helps configure large-scale networks with many terminals. Compared to AX3640S, entry capacity is 1.3 times larger for unicast routes (IPv4/IPv6), and is doubled for ARP/NDP.
A model with six 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports is available.
AX3640S: Feature-rich standalone switches intended for use as an enterprise core switch
Field-proven IP routing software equivalent to that of carrier-grade routers that has been well received by many service providers
Hardware-based IPv6 routing as well as IPv4 routing
Internally redundant, hot-swappable power suppliy

  • RoHS compliant

Fault Tolerant Network

Non-stop networkAX3650S

  • STP-free redundancy prevents trouble that is caused due to the complexity of using multiple protocols and provides more stable systems.

StackAX3650S

  • Stack enables multiple switches to operate together as a single switch, enabling simple protocol-free redundancy and unified management.
  • Link aggregation across stacked switches enables fast switchover in the event of a failure.
  • Ethernet cables are used for stacking, which enables long-haul communication between stack members.

Virtualization

Simple, low-cost virtual networkAX3650S

  • Using VRF (Virtual Routing and Forwarding) and VLAN together enables a network to be divided into logical subnets.
  • Virtual network achieves secure and highly reliable networks with lower costs.

VRFAX3650S

  • Multiple independent instances of a routing table in the same switch enable configuration of virtual networks.

Flexible network operationAX3650S

  • Allocating an independent IP address space for each partition allows for flexible network configuration without concern about address overlap.
  • Combination of virtualization and triple authentication provides secure login to a virtual network.

High Reliability and High Availability

Ring protocol

  • Possible to configure a ring network using the ALAXALA proprietary layer 2 redundancy protocol enabling fast switchover within 1 sec.
  • Possible to configure a high-flexibility, multi-ring network.

High reliability

  • Improves reliability with link aggregation, STP, VRRP, GSRP(Gigabit Switch Redundancy Protocol), uplink redundancy, graceful restart(helper), UDLD, and EtherOAM.
  • Non-stop software update is possible by using redundant switches.

Prevention of a loop failure

  • Loop detection function prevents loops that may be caused by miscabling.

Storm control

  • Storm control prevents the suspension of an entire system when storm has occurred.

QoS

  • Granular QoS control enables priority control (for important packets / voice packets), port bandwidth control and so on.

Hot swappable power supply

  • Internally redundant, hot swappable power supplies

Stable High-Functionality Routing

Field-proven routing features

  • Routing software equivalent to that of carrier-grade routers that has been well received by many service providers

Policy-based routing

  • Makes it possible to select the best route based on each traffic flow.
  • Supports a tracking feature, which helps detect communication faults and performs automatic route switchover.
  • Usable with VRF. AX3650S

Optic Multi-port Models

Optic multi-port models for a large-scale LAN

  • Models with optical fiber ethernet (1000BASE-X) are available for use as a core or distribution switch in enterprise networks.
    AX3650S-20S6XW : 20 ports for 1000BASE-X
    AX3640S-24SW/24S2XW : 24 ports for 1000BASE-X
  • Suitable for networks that require long distance wiring over 100m that UTP cables cannot reach, and for use in noisy environment(e.g. hospital, factory, etc.).

IPv6

High performance IPv6 routing

  • Hardware-based IPv6 routing as well as IPv4 routing
  • Supports various routing protocols, such as static routing, RIPng, OSPFv3, BGP4+, Multicast, and so on.

IPv6 Multicast in layer 2 networks

  • Supports MLD snooping.

Green IT and Power Saving

Dynamic power saving to cut unnecessary power useAX3650S

  • Auto power off to cut power to unused ports
  • Device sleep: the switch shifts into the sleep mode according to a predetermined schedule.
  • Scheduling: power consumption is reduced during the periods of low network usage (e.g., nighttime / holidays).

Energy saving design

  • Low power consumption with low power architecture / circuit design and energy saving parts

Security

Triple authentication

  • Supports three authentication methods (IEEE802.1X, Web, MAC), enabling flexible secure networking.

DHCP Snooping

  • Forwards only authorized packets coming from trusted DHCP clients whose IP addresses were issued by DHCP servers.

Quarantine solution

  • Only PCs complying with a security policy can access a network.

Filtering

  • Supports access control lists for layer 2, layer 3, and layer 4 headers.

VLAN

  • Port-based VLAN, Tag-VLAN, protocol VLAN, MAC VLAN

Operation Management and Maintenance

Unified CLI

  • Unified Command Line Interface enabling easy operation and maintenance

Command-free maintenance

  • Easy maintenance operation (e.g. backup data and update software.) just by inserting an SD card (script) into the switch
