Dell 10GbE Pass-Through Modules ensure 10Gb Ethernet interoperability for M-Series blade deployments. Since pass throughs are transparent devices, they are unseen in LAN topologies and provide direct Ethernet connectivity from server blades to external LANs. This level of interoperability can be beneficial when seeking to integrate blade servers into existing LANs from any partner of your choice.
Plug and done
As unmanaged devices, Dell 10Gb Ethernet Pass-Through Modules require no setup, configuration or management. Simply plug the unit into the M1000e chassis and connect cables to the sixteen optional shortwave SFP+ optical transceivers, and you’re done. The modules automatically connect at 10 Gbps on a port-by-port basis, enabling traffic to begin flowing from server blade to external 10Gb network switch.
By statically tying each internal (server) port to its corresponding external port, the 10GbE Pass-Through Modules help deliver dedicated and isolated bandwidth between each server blade and the LAN without compromise. The sixteen external ports in each module also help maximize the available Ethernet bandwidth from your M1000e to your LAN.
