The NETGEAR 8800 Series Chassis solution simplifies network infrastructures with purpose-built core, aggregation, and intelligent edge modules. Local Switching on every I/O module and 48Gbps per slot bidirectional bandwidth provide high-density, line-rate connectivity. Redundant, load-sharing power supplies, as well as redundant cooling fans, contribute to a robust hardware system that is highly available. Ethernet Automatic Protection Switching (EAPS) provides quick recovery from link failure and delivers consistent failover. The NETGEAR OS runs each protocol, such as OSPF or Spanning Tree, as a separate process that is protected from other processes. This preemptive multitasking increases system integrity and inherently protects against Denial of Service (DoS) attacks.
