Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Category :
A switch is a device with which it is possible to connect computers into a (local area) network, provided your computers all have an appropriate networking device installed. Switches can be daisy chained to form larger networks and come in managed and unmanaged variaties. The unmanaged versions generally cannot filter data and will forward any data that is fed into them, so they are better suited for small networks. Switches are easy to set up (just plug in the network cables) and allow you to share printers, storage space and other network resources with your entire home or office network.

McDATA Sphereon™ 4300 Fabric Switch (2034-212) is a 12-port, 2Gigabit per second (Gbps), scalable and affordable entry fabric switch for IBM TotalStorage FAStT and LTO SAN requirements. It is based upon McDATA 4500 Fabric Switch technology and designed to provide an affordable, scalable and simple to manage fabric switch.

The McDATA 4300 is designed to provide high availability advanced technology with a minimum number of components and concurrent firmware activation. High-density packaging and small form factor pluggable (SFP) transceivers provide 12-ports in 1U high rack space.

• SAN fabric simplification with up to 50% fewer device connections, ISL links and switches to manage than with 1Gbps Fabric Switches.
• 1 and 2Gbps throughput provides a future ready SAN infrastructure.
• "Connectivity on demand" simplifies management and enables a customer buy and grow strategy.
• McDATA Flexport technology provides scalable switch upgrades in 4-port increments, without fabric disruption.
• Reduced power and cooling and improved port density can provide significant savings.
• SFP optical transceivers and LC connectors offers up to 50% more connectivity per rack height.
