50011 Extreme BlackDiamond 6800 Series 

Home > Network Equipment > Extreme Network Equipment > Extreme Network Products > Extreme Networks Switching > BlackDiamond 6800 Series


The BlackDiamond 6800 switch architecture provides high-performance across all features. It has interface speeds ranging from 10/100 to Gigabit to 10 Gigabit Ethernet. Users can prioritize critical applications to deliver utmost performance to delay-sensitive applications. In addition, the VMAN and MPLS features allow a scalable, low cost mechanism to deliver Layer 2 VPNs across networks.


BlackDiamond 6800’s infrastructure capabilities are delivered using advanced ASICs, hardware and software technologies. These include redundant load-sharing hot-swappable power supplies, redundant management and switch fabric, and passive backplane, link aggregation of up to eight links in a single trunk with sub-second failover and fail-back capabilities, and OSPF, RIPv1 and RIPv2, IP Multicast, BGP4 routing for Layer 3 redundancy for high availability and throughput.


Additional technology of the BlackDiamond 6800 include extreme Standby Router Protocol (ESRP), Ethernet Automatic Protection Switching (EAPS), Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) and STP extensions from Extreme Networks, and link aggregation for Layer 3 and Layer 2 redundancy within network uplinks to assure that failure in other equipment will not result in lost connectivity for users, and high levels of security at the core of the network with ACLs, Network Login, and Denial of Service protection features.
