Product Details

The Lenovo RackSwitch™ G7028 is an inexpensive, entry-level Layer 2 1/10 Gb Ethernet switch that is designed for the data center. Data center customers continue to deploy applications by using 1 GbE networking switches while 10 GbE continues to grow for customer solutions that require greater I/O bandwidth. The RackSwitch G7028 is an ideal solution for data center customers who need an economical 1 Gb and 10 Gb connectivity solution.

The RackSwitch G7028 (see the following figure) is a top-of-rack data center switch that delivers excellent non-blocking, wire speed performance at an attractive price point. It supports 24x 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 ports and four 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ ports standard, while typically using only 45 watts of power. The RackSwitch G7028 is also designed with rear-to-front airflow, which allows for flexible mounting of the switch in a rack cabinet and provides convenient cable management and significant savings in cooling costs.
