The 1-Gigabit Ethernet switch module (part ID SBM-GEM-001) includes ten external 1-Gb/s uplink (RJ45) ports and fourteen internal 1-Gb/s downlink ports for connection to the SuperBlade's LAN interfaces. This layer 2 Ethernet switching module also has two internal Ethernet paths to the SuperBlade Chassis Management Module CMM(s) to allow configuration, management, and control of the switch and its ports through a browser-based management interface. Offering such advanced features as link aggregation (static), VLAN support, and Jumbo Frame support, the switch provides a connection between the Ethernet controller integrated on the mainboard and external Ethernet systems.
The 1/10-Gigabit Ethernet layer 2/3 Switch modules (part ID SBM-GEM-X2C+ and SBM-GEM-X3S+) offer advanced switching features and connection to 10-Gigabit Ethernet networks. Internally they use the same 1-Gb/s downlink ports as the SBM-GEM-001 for connection to the SuperBlade LAN interfaces. Externally SBM-GEM-X2C+ provides up to three 10-Gb/s uplink connections (two with a CX4 connector which are stackable and one SFP+) and two 1Gb/s uplink connections (RJ45). SBM-GEM-X3S+ provides up to three 10-Gb/s SFP+ uplink connections and four 1Gb/s uplink connections (RJ45). Both switches also have two internal Ethernet paths to the CMM(s) to allow configuration, management, and control of the switch and its ports through a browser-based management interface. In addition to the Web-based GUI, it offers a CLI for flexibility in management and control of single or multiple switch networks. Both SBM-GEM-X2C+ and SBM-GEM-X3S+ support up to 20 Blades.
The 10-Gigabit Ethernet Layer2/3 Switch Module (part ID SBM-XEM-X10SM) connects internally to an optional 10-Gigabit mezzanine card on the blade (either AOC-XEH-iN2, AOC-IBH-XDS or AOC-IBH-XDD). External 10-Gigabit SFP+ connectors are provided for uplinks. In ten-Blade systems, there are ten 10-Gigabit connectors; in TwinBlade systems, there are four.
