Allied Telesis Advanced Layer 3+ Modular Switch - Manageable - 3 Layer Supported - Modular - 3U High - Rack-mountable The Allied Telesis SwitchBlade x908 modular switch is the ideal solution for the modern enterprise network core where reliability, resiliency and high performance are the key requirements.


The SwitchBlade x908 was designed with reliability in mind. With dual power supplies, fan modules and a comprehensive range of expansion modules (XEMs) - all hot-swappable - the SwitchBlade x908 can be maintained and reconfigured when necessary without affecting network uptime.

The SwitchBlade x908 switch operates with one PSU, and installing a second PSU provides ultimate redundancy. Dual internal PSUs eliminate the need for an external Redundant Power Supply (RPS), thus saving valuable rack space. Builtinredundancy guarantees uninterrupted delivery of essential services.

The SwitchBlade x908 also features frontto-back cooling, making it ideal for data center applications.

Powerful network management

The Allied Telesis Autonomous Management Framework (AMF) meets the increased management requirements of modern converged networks, automating many everyday tasks including configuration management. AMF has powerful centralized management features that manage a complete network as a single virtual device. The network can be expanded with plug-and-play simplicity, and network node recovery is fully zero-touch.

AMF secure mode increases network security with management traffic encryption, authorization, and monitoring. AMF Guestnode allows third party devices, such as IP phones and security cameras, to be part of an AMF network.


High availability features such as VCStack™ (Virtual Chassis Stacking) and EPSRing™ (Ethernet Protection Switched Rings) ensure traffic flow continues even during unscheduled outages.

VCStack provides excellent resiliency by creating a single "virtual chassis" from two SwitchBlade x908 physical devices, using dedicated high speed stacking links. VCStack provides a highly available system where network resources are spread out across stacked units, reducing the impact should one of the stacked units fail. Switch ports may be aggregated on different units, for excellent high availability. VCStack delivers a resilient solution at a fraction of the cost of a full chassis-based system, and the stack may be managed as a single network node, greatly simplifying management tasks.

High Performing

The SwitchBlade x908 features fully non-blocking switching on all ports, to facilitate low latency, wirespeed IPv4 and IPv6 Layer 2 switching and Layer 3 routing. This is ideal for high-end server deployments. When combined with a large Layer 3 route table, it is ideal for aggregating gigabit connections.

MEF Certified

The SwitchBlade x908 has been certified by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) Certification program, which tests products for conformance to the strict requirements of Carrier Ethernet. Specifically, the SwitchBlade x908 is certified for compliance to MEF 9 and MEF 14 Ethernet Services tests.
