12 SFP ports, 12 combo ports (10/100/1000Base-T or 100/1000M SFP), and 2 10G XFP ports


Using a common set of modules for 10/100/1000BASE-T ports, PoE support, SFP, and 10-Gigabit uplinks, IT personnel can fit a DGS-8000 series switch with different port types and deploy it either as a core switch or an aggregation (i.e. distribution) switch. As a core switch, the DGS-8000 series provides numerous high-speed fiber backbones for a campus and central office network, while as an aggregation switch can provide high port density connections to workstations in an office environment, or to a subscriber’s CPE in a densely populated Ethernet metro area network.
