The H3C S6300 switch series is the latest 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) offering made for the space constrained data center. Its “Top of Rack” design provides a rich set of features tailored for the data center, and all packed in standard 1U with record breaking 10GE port density, and 40G upstream port. The S6300 switch series is made for high density 10GE access in data center and cloud computing networks.

As client side network bandwidth grows, 10GE adapters are increasingly common in servers, and switches have to deliver a higher forwarding performance and provide more 10GE expansion space. S6300-52QF features 48 SFP+ optical ports and four 40G QSFP ports, S6300-42QF switches feature 40 SFP+ optical ports, and two 40G QSFP ports. S6300-48S features 48 SFP+ optical ports. S6300-42QT features 32 1/10G Base-T ports, 8 SFP+ optical ports and two 40G QSFP ports. Each 40G port can run as a single 40G port or four 10GE ports.
H3C S6300 switch series is pre-built with Intelligent Resilient Framework 2 (IRF2). IRF2 provides the following benefits:
High scalability: With IRF2, plug-n-play device aggregation can be achieved by adding one or more switches into the IRF2 stack and enabling IRF2 stacking on the new device. New devices can be managed with a single IP, and upgraded at the same time to reduce network expansion cost.
High reliability: The IRF2 patented 1:N backup technology allows each slave device in the IRF2 stack to serve as the backup of the master, creating control and data link redundancy, as well as uninterrupted layer-3 forwarding. This improves the reliability, avoids unplanned business downtime and serves to improve overall performance. When the master device fails, traffic remains uninterrupted.
Load balancing: IRF2 supports cross-device link aggregation, upstream and downstream can be connected to more than one physical link, which creates another layer of network redundancy and boosts the network resource utilization.
Availability: H3C Implements IRF2 through standard Forty Gigabit Ethernet (40GE) or Ten Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) ports which allocates bandwidth for business and application access and reasonably splits local traffic and upstream traffic. IRF2 rules can not only be obeyed within and across the rack, but also across the LAN.
S6300 switch series supports Intelligent Resilient Framework 3 (IRF3) technology. IRF3 takes the box type switches as a remote interface board to the master switches, to achieve heterogeneously vertical extension. The entire system can be treated as a single logical device for unified management and use. IRF3 can provide users with the following benefits:
Unified Management: All members can be centrally configured and managed on master devices, with no need to physically be connected to each member and be configured individually.
Unified security strategy: the entire network security policy only needs to be configured on the master device to avoid network device individual configuration and potential policy conflicts, significantly reducing security deployment workload.
Reduce network layers: To support large-scale remote interface board expansion capabilities, the traditional three-layer network architecture can be simplified to be two layers through the IRF3 technology, simplifying the network's physical and logical complexity.
Streamline service: Service configuration is based on a single logical device configuration, which can greatly simplify VLAN, IP, routing, MPLS VPN and other network planning considerations in the whole network.
Easy maintenance: All access equipment configurations and software versions are automatically assigned by the master device, the new device that joins or leaves can be "hot swappable" with zero-configuration, and does not affect the normal operation of other equipment.
To cope with data center cooling aisle design, the H3C S6300 switch series comes with flexible airflow design, which features bi-cooling aisles in the front and back. Users may also choose the direction of airflow (from front to back or vice versa) by selecting a different fan tray.
H3C S6300 switch series supports AAA, RADIUS and user account based authentication, IP, MAC, VLAN, port-based user identification, dynamic and static binding; when working with the H3C iMC platform, it can conduct real time management, instant diagnosis and crackdown on illicit network behavior.
H3C S6300 switch series supports enhanced ACL control logic, which supports an enormous amount of in-port and out-port ACL, and delegate VLAN based ACL. This simplifies user deployment process and avoids ACL resource wastage.
The S6300 switch series provides multiple reliability protection at both switch and link levels. With over current, overvoltage, and overheat protection.
All models have a redundant pluggable power module, which enables flexible configuration of AC or DC power modules based on actual needs. The entire switch supports fault detection and alarm for power supply and fan, allowing fan speed to change to suit different ambient temperatures.
H3C S6300 series switch supports a rich management interface, including console, external network and USB. Management protocols such as SNMPv1/v2/v3 are supported aside from iMC Management Console. The network administrator may activate control through CLI, Web interface and TELNET which gives maximum flexibility in accessing and managing the device. The administrator may also choose SSH2.0 and SSL encryption to shield the management session.
