Example Testing Data:

We hooked the switch up to a IXIA Tester and ran a few simple tests to make sure everything was setup properly:

Quick result summary:

Switch Latency: 4.4 microseconds at 64 bytes

Line Rate Forwarding of 64 byte packets on all ports: Yes – Unidirectional Numbers: 101Mpps/51Gbps

Line Rate Forwarding of 1518 byte packets on all ports: Yes –  Unidirectional Numbers: 5.5Mpps/67Gbps


The Edge-Core ECS4610-50T is a capable switch that fits well in the service provider and enterprise networks.  With more than enough forwarding bandwidth and processing power it fits right in with the other 1GbE aggregation switches on the market.  The feature set is comparable to Cisco, Dell Force 10 and other leaders in the space.
