Core Switches

Central node for distributed campus networks

The LANCOM core switch is the centerpiece of a network and offers enormous switch capacity, 100% reliability, and scalability for the entire campus LAN. As the top and highest-throughput layer of a three-tier switch architecture, this high-performance backbone forwards data packets efficiently and virtually latency-free to connected aggregation switches resp. distribution switches. Functions such as Virtual Port Channel (VPC / MC-LAG), a selectable fan concept, and redundant power supply units that can be replaced during operation ensure switch architectures with 100% uptime. The native ports of the core switch and an industry-standard CLI allow smooth integration into existing installations without hidden costs.
