Switch MES 5324 is high-performance devices that have 10GBASE-X, 40GBASE-X interfaces. They are used in operartors networks as aggregation devices and in Data centers as Top-of-Rack или End-of-Row switches. 

Ports reach such speeds as 40 Gbps (SFP+), 40 Gbps  (QSFP) или 1 Gbps  (1000BASE-X и 1000BASE-T SFP). So these devices provide flexabiluity in using and an opportunity to procced higher speeds. Non-blocking switching matrix does packet proccessing at maximal load with minimum delay for all types of traffic. 
Front-to-back ventilation provides effective cooling while using devices in Data centers conditions. 

Reserved ventilators and power supplies of alternative and constant currents, monitoring system of harware help to get high reliability. Swithces have an opportunity to change the power modules and ventillation modules "hot".
