Overview:

Enterprise IT managers have limited time or resources to deal with overly complex, specialized network infrastructure solutions. BlackDiamond 8800 series switches from Extreme Networks simplify the architecture. Purpose-built core, aggregation, edge and Data Center modules can meet your chassis needs across the network. Traditional three-tier architectures can be replaced with a streamlined two-tier network that reduces management overhead, operational complexity and capital expenditures.

BlackDiamond 8800 series switches deliver voice-class availability, high-density Power over Ethernet (PoE), Gigabit Ethernet, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet wherever it's needed. They serve well as a high-performance Enterprise core. The non-blocking ports interconnect thousands of servers for High Performance Cluster Computing (HPCC) and data center applications. A full range of Layers 2 - 4 features for IPv4 and IPv6 allow the aggregation of high-speed connections, eliminating bottlenecks between edge and core. BlackDiamond 8800 fits well at the edge of the most demanding enterprises switching Voice-over-IP (VoIP), video, wireless and data traffic.

High Availability

A high-performance network connection, whether used to connect PCs and IP telephones at the access layer or to interconnect servers in a cluster, is only useful if it is also highly available. BlackDiamond 8800 series modular switching family incorporates extensive hardware redundancy and a modular OS—ExtremeXOS—that provides the network recovery required by converged applications.

Redundant System Design

Redundant Management Modules
The BlackDiamond 8800 series of modular switches are configured with an automatic failover mechanism so that if one Management Switch Module (MSM) fails, the second MSM will automatically take over management responsibility for the entire switch. This feature is critical for networks running voice and other mission-critical applications. (This capability is not available for the BlackDiamond 8500-series modules.)

Advanced Chassis Design for Availability
BlackDiamond 8800 series switches include a passive backplane complemented by high availability design elements such as isolated control and data planes, redundant controller boards for power distribution, and fan control and environmental monitoring to identify anomalies before they affect network availability.

Redundant Load Sharing Power Supplies
BlackDiamond 8800 series switches support a set of redundant power configurations that can load share up to six internal power supplies simultaneously. Three power supplies in a 2 + 1 redundancy configuration can power a fully loaded chassis with gigabit or 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports. In addition, without the need of an external power tray, three power supplies are available to support large PoE implementations.

Redundant Cooling Fans in a Hot-Swappable Fan Tray
Redundant cooling is delivered by a tray of nine fans (BlackDiamond 8810) or six fans (BlackDiamond 8806). The fan tray itself is hot swappable so the BlackDiamond 8800 series switches keep operating while the fan tray is replaced.

Modular Operating System for Non-Stop Operations

Preemptive Multitasking and Protected Memory
BlackDiamond 8800 series switches allow each of many protocols such as Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and Spanning Tree to run as separate OS processes that are protected from each other. This drives increased system integrity and inherently protects against Denial of Service (DoS) attacks.

Process Monitoring and Restart
ExtremeXOS dramatically increases network availability using process monitoring and restart. Each independent OS process is monitored in real time. If a process becomes unresponsive or stops running, it can be automatically restarted.

Loadable Software Modules
The modular design of ExtremeXOS allows the upgrading of individual software modules, should this be necessary, leading to higher availability in the network (see Figure 1).

ExtremeXOS Modular Design

High Availability Network Protocols

Ethernet Automatic Protection Switching (EAPS)
EAPS allows the IP network to provide the level of resiliency and uptime that users expect from their traditional voice networks. EAPS is more adaptable than Spanning Tree or Rapid Spanning Tree Protocols, offering sub-second (less than 50 milliseconds) recovery and delivering consistent failover regardless of number of VLANs, number of network nodes or network topology. In most situations, VoIP calls will not drop and digital video feeds will not freeze or pixelize because EAPS allows the network to recover almost transparently from link failure.

Spanning Tree/Rapid Spanning Tree Protocols
BlackDiamond 8800 series switches support Spanning Tree (802.1D), Per VLAN Spanning Tree (PVST+), Rapid Spanning Tree (802.1w) and Multiple Instances of Spanning Tree (802.1s) protocols for Layer 2 resiliency.

Software Enhanced Availability
Software enhanced availability allows users to remain connected to the network even if part of the network infrastructure is down. BlackDiamond 8800 series switches constantly check for problems in the uplink connections using advanced Layer 3 protocols such as OSPF, VRRP and Extreme Standby Router Protocol™ (ESRP, supported in Layer 2 or Layer 3), and dynamically route around the problem.

Equal Cost Multipath Routing
Equal Cost Multipath (ECMP) routing enables uplinks to be load balanced for performance and cost savings while also supporting redundant failover. If an uplink fails, traffic is automatically routed to the remaining uplinks and connectivity is maintained.

Link Aggregation (802.3ad)
Cross-module link aggregation enables trunking of up to eight links on a single logical connection, for up to 80 Gbps of redundant bandwidth per logical connection.

Multi-Switch Link Aggregation Groups (M-LAG)
M-LAG can address bandwidth limitations and improve network resiliency, in part by routing network traffic around bottlenecks, reducing the risks of a single point of failure, and allowing load balancing across multiple switches.

High-Performance Connectivity

BlackDiamond 8800 series switches deliver high-performance, cost-effective connectivity to address networking trends such as the increasing number of devices at the edge of the network: IP telephones, wireless Access Points (APs), and other devices. These networking trends drive the requirement for Gigabit Ethernet to the desktop and the use of 10 Gigabit Ethernet as an interconnect technology.

Large Switching Capacity

BlackDiamond 8800 series switches deliver 3.8 Tbps of switching bandwidth, and over 2,840 Mpps Layer 2 – Layer 3 hardware forwarding rate.

  • 256 Gbps per slot bidirectional bandwidth
  • Local switching on every I/O module

High-Density, Line-Rate Connectivity
BlackDiamond 8800 series switches support up to 2,352 gigabit ports or up to 582 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a single seven-foot rack, allowing BlackDiamond 8800 series switches to deliver cost-effective connectivity for a range of edge, aggregation, core and data center needs.

Jumbo Frame Support
Supporting jumbo frames allows cluster computing applications to optimize network performance.

IPv6 Packet Forwarding Support
IPv6 makes available trillions of new IP addresses and offers better address allocation, address aggregation, and features that provide significantly greater end-to-end connectivity and services. BlackDiamond 8800 series switches support IPv6 today, and enable enterprises to get ready to handle IPv6 traffic as this traffic enters their networks.

Convergence-Ready Connectivity with VoIP Automatic Provisioning

Voice-Grade Connections
BlackDiamond 8800 series switches support 8 queues per port and a range of QoS technologies that can prioritize and predictably handle high-priority traffic policing or rate-limiting on ingress, 802.1q tagging and DiffServ marking, and shaping on egress. The Extreme Networks tradition of building products with low latency and jitter continues with BlackDiamond 8800 series switches, allowing network managers to build highperformance networks.

High-Density PoE
PoE allows BlackDiamond 8800 series switches to support large IP Telephony and wireless AP deployments. BlackDiamond 8810 can support up to 333 Class 3 ports in a single 14RU chassis or can power a maximum of 432 PoE ports in a single chassis with Class 1 or 2 power. No external power trays are needed in order to power up fully loaded BlackDiamond 8800 series switches with Class 1, 2 or 3 devices.

Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) Support
BlackDiamond 8800 series switches incorporate LLDP to simplify troubleshooting of enterprise networks and enhance the ability of network management tools to discover and maintain accurate network topologies.

Universal Port—Voice-over-IP (VoIP) Auto Provisioning
BlackDiamond 8800 series switches set the stage for convergence applications by allowing enterprises to add new access devices in a non-disruptive plug-and-play fashion. Voice and wireless services can be easily implemented without major network upgrades. BlackDiamond 8800 series switches support automatic provisioning of VoIP using LLDP and event-based command scripting capability. It allows dynamic configuration of voice VLANs and QoS. This auto-configuration capability allows you to configure VoIP phone settings such as voice VLAN settings, call server IP address configuration, etc. This level of simplicity in managing network changes can help reduce operating expenses.

Flexible Connectivity

The BlackDiamond 8800 series switches support virtualization, specifically virtual routing and dynamic movement of virtual servers.

Support for Virtualized Data Centers

Direct Attach™ eliminates switching at the virtual switch layer, simplifying the network and improving performance. Direct Attach enables data center simplification by reducing network tiers from 4 or 5 tiers to just 3 or 2 tiers, depending on the size of the data center. (Requires the Direct Attach Feature Pack, part number 11011.)

XNV™ (ExtremeXOS Network Virtualization) is a set of software modules for the ExtremeXOS® based switching product portfolio, and is available via the Data Center Feature Pack for Extreme Networks Ridgeline™, a network and service management application. XNV brings insight, control and automation for highly virtualized data centers to the network.

Priority-based Flow Control (PFC, or IEEE 802.1Qbb) allows network traffic to be controlled independently based on Class of Service. PFC allows network traffic that requires lossless traffic throughput to be prioritized, while other traffic types that do not require or perform better without PFC can continue as normal. (Requires 8900-10G24X-c I/O module(s), part number 41632B.)

Support for Service Provider Metro Core and Mobile Backhaul Applications

The BlackDiamond 8800 series with 8900-xl or -xm series modules offers up to 198 line-rate 10 GbE ports, 1,200 GbE ports (fiber or copper), or 48 40 GbE ports in a seven-foot rack, providing outstanding services capacity. High port density and resiliency through EAPS makes this series an ideal core or aggregation solution for next-generation packet transport networks. Whether deployed as a metro core switch or at the cell-site aggregation hub for mobile backhaul, these switches provide high-performance converged services over a single transport network—including residential triple-play, business Ethernet and mobile voice and data services. A single transport network provides cost savings by eliminating the need for multiple overlay networks.The switches support IEEE 802.1ag Continuity Fault Management for proactive service management, and hardware support for multicast quality of service.

Tunable DWDM support allows service providers and others to tune XFP 10 Gigabit Ethernet optics to a specific frequency, reducing the need for additional fiber runs and XFP sparing. Digital Diagnostics Monitoring Interface (DDMI) support allows service providers to monitor and diagnose pluggable optics in real-time.

Low Power Consumption

The BlackDiamond 8800 series switches typically consume 1.5 Watts (2.1 Watts maximum) per Gigabit Ethernet port and 7.0 Watts (10.4 Watts maximum) per 10 Gigabit Ethernet port. This is significantly lower than other switches in the industry, and can provide considerable savings in power and cooling costs.

Ease of Management

Extreme Networks has developed tools that save you time and resources in managing your network. The Universal Port capability allows auto-configuration of VoIP phones, for example, providing simplicity in managing network changes. Ridgeline network and service management provides fault, configuration, accounting, performance and security functions, allowing more effective management of Extreme Networks products, solutions and third-party devices, in a converged network.

For carrier networks, Ridgeline enables the shift from reactive circuit monitoring to proactive service management. The key features integrated into the Service Advisor Feature Pack unify service fulfillment, service assurance and service engineering to enable carriers to more effectively manage next-generation residential triple play, business Ethernet and Ethernet mobile backhaul services.

Investment Protection

With a wide range of available I/O and management modules, the versatile BlackDiamond 8800 series switches provide superior investment protection over the product lifetime. For example, the BlackDiamond 8500-series modules can support wiring closet or small enterprise edge applications; at a later date, BlackDiamond 8800 c-series modules can be implemented to support medium-sized enterprise core deployment or aggregation. And the BlackDiamond 8900-series modules, with their high performance and high density, can support large enterprises or interconnection for data centers and HPCC applications. Past and current generations of modules are compatible with any BlackDiamond 8800 series chassis.

Comprehensive Security Management

Implementing a secure network means providing protection at the network perimeter as well as the core. BlackDiamond 8800 series switches use advanced security functions in protecting your network from known or potential threats.

Directory-Integrated Link Security

Network Login and Dynamic Security Profile
Network Login capability implemented in ExtremeXOS enforces user admission and usage policies. BlackDiamond 8800 series switches support a comprehensive range of Network Login options by providing an 802.1x agent-based approach, a Web-based (agentless) login capability for guests and a MAC-based authentication model for devices. With these modes of Network Login, only authorized users and devices can connect to the network and be assigned to the appropriate VLAN. The Universal Port scripting framework available in BlackDiamond 8800 series switches lets you implement Dynamic Security Profiles which, in sync with Network Login, allows you to implement fine grained and robust security policies. Upon authentication, the switch can load dynamic ACL/ QoS profiles for a user or group of users, to deny/allow access to the application servers or segments within the network.

Multiple Supplicant Support
Converged network designs often involve the use of shared ports for IP Telephony and wireless access. Multiple supplicant capability on a switch delivers secured access in such designs by uniquely authenticating and applying appropriate policies and VLANs for each user on a shared port.

Host Integrity Checking
Host integrity checking helps keep infected or noncompliant machines off the network. BlackDiamond 8800 series switches support a host integrity or endpoint integrity solution that is based on the model from the Trusted Computing Group.

Identity Manager
Identity Manager allows network managers to track users who access their network. User identity is captured based on NetLogin authentication, LLDP discovery and Kerberos snooping. ExtremeXOS uses the information to then report on the MAC, VLAN, computer hostname, and port location of the user. Further, Identity Manager can create both roles and policies, and then bind them together to create role-based profiles based on organizational structure or other logical groupings, and apply them across multiple users to allow appropriate access to network resources.

Threat Detection and Response

CLEAR-Flow Security Rules Engine
CLEAR-Flow Security Rules Engine provides first order threat detection and mitigation, and mirrors traffic to third-party security appliances such as an IDS/IPS for further analysis of suspicious traffic in the network. CLEAR-Flow provides cost-effective scalability of security threat detection.

sFlow
sFlow® is a sampling technology that provides the ability to sample application-level traffic flows on all interfaces simultaneously.

IPFIX Hardware Support
IPFIX (Internet Protocol Flow Information eXport) is a complementary protocol to sFlow. IPFIX gathers information about network flows through the switch and sends the information to an external collector. Selected 8900-series I/O modules for BlackDiamond 8800 series switches include hardware support to keep track of the flow records. See product specifications for more information.

Port Mirroring
BlackDiamond 8800 series switches support many-to-one and cross module port mirroring. This capability can be used to mirror traffic to an external network appliance such as an intrusion detection device for trend analysis or be utilized by a network administrator as a diagnostic tool when fending off a network attack.

Line-Rate Access Control Lists
BlackDiamond 8800 series switches support hardware-based ACLs based on Layer 2, 3 or 4 header information such as the MAC address, IP source/destination address or TCP/UDP port number.

Hardened Network Infrastructure

Denial of Service (DoS) Protection
BlackDiamond 8800 series switches handle DoS attacks gracefully. If the switch detects an unusually large number of packets in the CPU input queue, it will assemble ACLs that automatically stop these packets from reaching the CPU. After a period of time, the ACLs are removed. If the attack continues, they are reinstalled.

Policy-Based Routing
Policy-based routing provides a flexible mechanism for network administrators to customize the flow of traffic within their networks. ACLs configured on the switch can redirect packets away from their normal path to another physical switch port. Packets are selected according to their ACL match conditions such as QoS, VLAN, IP addresses, protocol, port number or other criteria.

ASIC-Based Longest Prefix Match
LPM routing eliminates the need for control plane software to learn new flows and allows the network to be resilient under a DoS attack.

Secure Management
The use of protocols like SSH2, SCP and SNMPv3 supported by a BlackDiamond 8800 series switch prevents the interception of management communications and man-in-the-middle attacks.

MD5 Authentication of Routing Protocols
MD5 authentication of routing protocols prevents attackers from tampering with valid messages and attacking routing sessions.
