The VSP 8600 adds significant flexibility to the Extreme Networks portfolio, and is compatible with, and complementary to, existing products and technologies. It represents a highly compact, next-generation, high-performance Chassis-based Modular Ethernet Sw itching platform. It is positioned as a highly scalable platform delivering a broad range of interface connectivity, and focused primarily for demanding Core/Spine Switch applications in the Campus and Data Center. To this end, the VSP 8600's architecture features deep packet buffers that accommodate bursty traffic and deliver lossless performance.

Extreme Networks has a long history of innovation in the Ethernet Switching industry. The VSP 8600 continues this proud tradition. It?s a modular platform that delivers high capacity yet consumes minimal space, delivering leading port and bandwidth densities. It is a highly efficient platform that reduces system complexity by integrating control functionality with a broad range of interface options. The VSP 860 0 features a flexible architecture that satisfies today's need for high-performance and high-availability, and seamlessly integrates capabilities that allow for an evolution that will keep the platform class-leading for many years.

The VSP 8600 makes use of the most advanced, efficient merchant silicon from the industry's leading innovator. This achieve faster time-to-market, greater economies of performance, and broader feature capability. The VSP 8608 Chassis is very low-profile, given the capacity and density, occupying just seven (7) RU of height in a standard 19-rack.


System Performance

Each 8600 Switch Fabric Module provides 7.2Tbps in terms of aggregate bandwidth, or 3.6Tbps of Full-Duplex bandwidth. This capacity is evenly distributed across the eight IOC Module slots. As each additional 8600SF Module is added to the system, additional per-IOC slot bandwidth is introduced, increasing the overall capacity and performance levels.

Therefore, a fully loaded system, with three 8600SF Modules installed, delivers a raw system capacity of aggregate 21.6Tbps (10.8Tbps Full Duplex). The first-generation IOC Modules can access 480Gbps aggregate (240Gbps FDX) of each of the installed Switch Fabric Modules, up to the maximum of 1.44Tbps (720Gbps FDX).

Product Positioning

The new VSP 8600 expands the VSP line with an order of magnitude increase in port-density and switching performance. These capabilities equip the new VSP 860 0 for its primary focus: Core and/ or Aggregation Switch in mid-to-large Campus networks. Additionally, the VSP 8600 is suitably architected to deliver versatile services in hybrid Campus/ Data Center deployment scenarios, acting as the Spine Switch in a Spine/ Leaf Top-of-Rack deployment, or as the End-/ Middle-of-Row that provides direct Server termination. Supporting Extreme Networks' innovative Fabric Connect and Switch Cluster technologies, in addition to conventional IP Routing, the VSP 8600 is an agile and versatile option that?s suitable for a variety of deployment scenarios.

The VSP 8600 can be implemented singularly, benefiting from hitless failover high-availability that protects traffic flows in the event of any system-level failure. However, it's more typically deployed as a pair or in multiples of paired nodes. Thus implemented, the VSP 8600 delivers network-level always-on application resiliency and high-availability. When properly architected, the network is largely autonomous: network-wide application availability is protected from any single equipment, system, or node failure.

For large Campus deployment s, the VSP 8600 will t ypically be matched with wiring closet fixed switches, like the ExtremeSwitching ERS or ExtremeXOS switch families. Leveraging 10 Gigabit network uplinks ensures end-to-end performance, complementing the demanding capabilities of Gigabit-to-the-Desktop and Wave 2 Wireless LAN infrastructures.

System Compatibility

From a software perspective, the VSP 8600 Series was introduced with the VOSS 4.5 software release; this is, therefore, the minimum level of software available to operate the Switch. The recent VOSS 6.2 release for the VSP 8600 delivers the following major enhancements:

  • IPv6 Routing: A comprehensive suite of IPv6 routing features, including OSPFv3, BGP+ and RIPng, now allows the VSP 8600 to fully participate in IPv6 Layer 3 network environments.
  • Shortest Path Bridging (SPB) Multicast: : IPv4-based multicast services over the Fabric Connect (or SPB) virtual network are introduced with VOSS 6.2 on the VSP 8600. This includes IPv4 multicast over Fabric Connect L2 VSNs, L3 VSNs, as well as over IP Shortcut routing. This enables the VSP 8600 to deliver flexible, high-performance, and resilient IP multicast services over the Fabric Connect network without the complexity of PIM.
  • Application Telemetry: Granular visibility into application performance, users and devices is provided through Application Telemetry services that operate in conjunction with Extreme's ExtremeAnalytics platform. Application Telemetry combines packet flow information from the VSP 8600, along with deep packet inspection abilities of ExtremeAnalytics, to deliver actionable insights into network and application performance ? all without the need for expensive dedicated sensors or collectors.

Software Licensing

  • IOC Base Software License. The VSP 8600 implements a new licensing paradigm that introduces a pay-as-you-grow approach to the licensing most commonly used software features. For each installed IOC Module, customers will purchase a corresponding IOC Base Software License; this has the effect of dispensing with the large up-front costs associated with the conventional one-size-fits-all Chassis license.
  • Layer 3 Virtualization Feature Pack. This is an optional, system-wide, mission-specific license that enables advanced level of device- and network-level virtualization, and - where local regulations permit - MACsec. This Feature Packs enables: >16 BGP Peers, >24 Virtual Routing and Forwarding instances, Layer 3 Virtual Service Networks, and ? where applicable - MACsec.


The VSP 8600 is a modular chassis system, supporting a field-replaceable, hot-swappable capability on all system hardware components: Power Supplies, Fan Trays, Switch Fabric and Interface Modules. Ethernet connectivit y is delivered by the addition of one or more Interface Modules, referred to as IOC Modules. The VSP 8600 runs Extreme Network's feature-rich VSP Operating System Software (VOSS).

The VSP 8608 Chassis features eight slots for IOC Modules, plus three central slots reserved for Switch Fabric Modules; all are accessible from the front of the chassis. These slots are all vertically-orientated and organized such that, left-to-right, Slots 1-4 and 5-8 are available for IOC Modules, with the three central slots reserved for Switch Fabric (SF) Modules. The VSP 8608 Chassis is very low-profile, given the capacity and density, occupying just seven RU of height in a standard 19" rack.

Normally, in a modular chassis design, there is a hardware component dedicated to the control plane functionality: often referred to as a Supervisor or Controller. However, with the VSP 8600, the control plane function has been decentralized and seamlessly integrated into the design of the IOC Modules themselves. This delivers an enhanced level of hardware efficiency and helps to reduce the overall system complexity, physical profile, and cost. All IOC Modules support this role, although it's the two IOC Modules installed in Slots 1and 2 that actively perform this task.

The front of the chassis also provides access for the Power Supply bays. Up to four independent load-sharing PSUs are supported, and both 3,000W AC or 2,500W DC models are available. It should be noted that while the system supports both AC and DC power, all PSUs must be of the same type; that is, either all AC or all DC. Typically, the VSP 8600 will be operated in a N+1PSU configuration to ensure power resiliency.

And, finally, five Fan Trays are installed into the rear of the chassis and deliver front-to-back cooling airflow. By default, the system ships with all five Fan Modules installed, and spare units can be purchased to provide for on-site replacement to cover any failure eventualities.

The VSP 8608 supports up to three 8600SF Modules in a load-sharing, high-availability configuration, providing a raw system capacity of up to 21.6Tbps of aggregate throughput. At least one Switch Fabric Module is required for the VSP 8600 to operate, and depending upon the mix of IOC Modules installed, additional Switch Fabric Modules provide extra per-IOC slot switching capacity and/ or resiliency. The first-generation IOC Modules can access up to 1,440Gbps of aggregate Switch Fabric capacity.

The VSP 860 0 supports high-density 10, 40, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity with flexible multi-rate capabilities. IOC Modules leverage the latest generation high-performance ASIC, delivering full network classification and pipelining functionalities. Available VSP 8600 Series IOC modules are as follows:

  • 860 6CQ 6-port 10 0 Gigabit Ethernet in QSFP28 format
  • 8616QQ 16-port 40 Gigabit Ethernet in QSFP+ format
  • 8624XS 24-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet in SFP+ format
  • 8624XT 24-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet in RJ45 format

It should also be noted:

  • 100 Gigabit Ethernet QSFP28 ports support Channelization and can, therefore, be individually subdivided as 4x25Gbps or 4x10Gbps channels with QSFP28 and QSFP+ transceivers respectively.
  • 100 Gigabit Ethernet QSFP28 ports can also operate at a 40Gbps data rate using QSFP+ transceivers.
  • 40 Gigabit Ethernet QSFP+ Ports 1-4 support Channelization and can, therefore be individually sub-divided as 4x10Gbps channels.
