Switch MES 5324 is high-performance devices that have 10GBASE-X, 40GBASE-X interfaces. They are used in service provider networks as aggregation devices and in Data centers as Top-of-Rack или End-of-Row switches. 

Ports reach such speeds as 40 Gbps (QSFP), 10 Gbps (SFP+) или 1 Gbps (1000BASE-X и 1000BASE-T SFP). So these devices provide flexibility in using and an opportunity to process on higher speeds. Non-blocking switching matrix does packet processing at maximal load with minimum delay for all types of traffic. 
Front-to-back ventilation provides effective cooling while using the devices in Data centers conditions. 

Reserved ventilators and power supplies of alternative and constant currents, monitoring system of hardware help to get high reliability. Switches have an opportunity to change the power modules and ventilation modules "hot".
