Product Information

Modernize your network

N-Series is a family of energy-efficient and cost-effective 1GbE and 10GbE switches designed for modernizing and scaling network infrastructure. The Dell Networking N3000 Series offers high-availability GbE switches for Layer 3 access or aggregation, providing easy-to-manage solutions that:

  • Use MLAG for multipath loop-free redundancy without spanning tree to enable full-bandwidth utilization and high availability
  • Promote greater interoperability through interfaces with Cisco's Rapid Per VLAN Spanning Tree (RPVST+) and devices using Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP)
  • Offer a more flexible choice in your network by uniting products with the latest open standard protocols
  • Include advanced IPv4 and IPv6 Layer 3 routing, security and scalability features
  • Plug-and-play configuration with Dell EqualLogic iSCSI storage arrays with one-command iSCSI setup that alleviates multiple-step configuration and potential configuration errors
Deliver clean power to network devices with PoE+ support

The Dell Networking N3000 Series has options for up to 48 ports of Power-over-Ethernet Plus (PoE+) without an external power supply. This allows you to attach devices with high power requirements (up to 30.8 watts) without running a separate power cable. PoE+ is particularly useful in older buildings where installing power to multiple, widespread locations can be prohibitively expensive.

Designed for efficiency

Built to help keep operating costs down, the N3000 Series can operate at temperatures up to 113°F (45°C) to help reduce cooling costs. Features designed to improve overall efficiency include:

  • Hot-swappable 80PLUS-certified efficient power supply with dual power supplies option
  • Enough power capacity to provide up to 48 ports of PoE+ (up to 30.8 watts) in a 1U footprint
  • Redundant variable-speed cooling fans
  • Energy-Efficient Ethernet and low-power PHYs to help reduce power to inactive ports and idle links
Advanced feature set to simplify management

The Dell Networking N3000 Series is designed for easy deployment, outstanding interoperability and a low learning curve for network administrators. A single OS release (Dell Networking OS 6) allows you to maintain consistent configurations across all N-Series products with a comprehensive feature set that includes:

  • One common command line interface (CLI) and graphical user interface (GUI) that use a well-known command language to help skilled network administrators become productive quickly
  • USB auto-configuration that helps network administrators rapidly deploy mirrored configurations to numerous devices by simply inserting a USB key
  • A variety of enterprise-class features with familiar and intuitive configuration and management commands
  • The latest open-standard protocols and smart integration technologies to help make smoothly operating multi-vendor networks possible

Deploy with confidence at any scale

With high throughput and capacity to handle unexpected workloads, the N3000 Series switches are ideal Layer 3 solutions for fast growing GbE networks that require high-density aggregation with seamless redundancy and availability.

  • Data rates up to 260Gbps (full duplex) and a forwarding rate of up to 193Mpps
  • Hot swap expansion module supports dual SFP+ and dual 10GBaseT
  • Built-in stacking ports and standard N-Series stacking cables support a stacking architecture up to 12 units at 84Gbps
  • Switch stacks up to 624 1GbE ports can be managed from a single screen or IP address
