A Customizable 10G Base-T Switch Ideal for Top, Middle, or End-of-Row Deployments

Arctica 4806xt Network Switch

As modern data centers and high-performance computing systems improve performance and efficiency, the number of interactions between devices increases exponentially. To prevent bottlenecks, high-performance networking switches are mission critical. Designed for performance and scalability, the Penguin Computing® Arctica® 4806xt switch provides full line-rate switching at Layer 2 or Layer 3 across 48 10GbE ports and 6 40GbE uplinks. The Arctica 4806xt switch was designed as a top-of-rack switch for virtualized data centers, however, the longer transmission distance of Ethernet (up to 330 ft) also makes it an ideal option to be located in MoR (middle-of-row) or EoR (end-of-row) positions.
