- 14 x 40 Gigabit Ethernet + 18 x 40 Gigabit QSFP+ + 2 x 1Gb Ethernet + 1 x serial
- plug-in module
The IBM Flex System EN6131 40Gb Ethernet Switch in conjunction with the EN6132 40Gb Ethernet adapter offer the performance that you need to support clustered databases, parallel processing, transactional services, and high-performance embedded I/O applications, which reduces task completion time and lowers the cost per operation. This switch offers 14 internal and 18 external 40Gb Ethernet ports that enable a non-blocking network design. It supports all Layer 2 functions so servers can communicate within the chassis without going to a Top-of-Rack (ToR) switch, which helps improve performance and latency.
