The M3500 is a 1RU (rack unit) Carrier Ethernet/IP aggregation switch that supports latency-sensitive, mobile packet-based transport. The unit is comprised of 48x1GE(SFP), 10GE(SFP+) or 25GE(SFP28) ports, and 6x40GE(QSFP+) or 100GE(QSFP28) ports for pluggable optics.
The M3500 is designed to address mobile transport network challenges head on. With very high switching capacity, low latency, key synchronization features, and high service scalability, it gives service providers the agility and capacity they need to get mobile services to market quickly. Its advanced features are designed for next generation packet mobile deployments with traffic management and carrier class reliability in mind.
