Overview
Bottom rule

Three new IBM BNT data center Ethernet switches are available for IBM POWER7™ processor-based servers, offering three great alternatives for the access or distributed layer when laying out your IBM Power Systems™ data center switching environment. To order the IBM BNT RackSwitch G8124ER, the IBM BNT RackSwitch G8052R, or the IBM BNT RackSwitch G8264R, you must also order a supported POWER7 server or already have installed either a supported POWER7 server or products in the Midrange Storage or Enterprise Storage categories. A maximum of two switches may be ordered per POWER7 server, or a maximum of four switches may be ordered per storage product.

The new IBM BNT data center Ethernet switches for Power Systems servers are top-of-rack (TOR) switches designed to provide extremely low latency, low power consumption, excellent costs of acquisition, and low total cost of ownership. Matching the standard TOR configurations desired by most Power Systems data centers, these 1U switches are mounted in the rear of the rack to optimize cabling, and like Power® servers, are cooled with airflow entering through the front of the rack and exiting through the rear of the rack. Front-to-rear rack airflow for these switches is maintained by mounting the front of each switch facing the rear of the rack.

The G8124ER provides up to twenty-four 10 Gb ports for either upstream or downstream connections. The G8052R provides up to forty-eight 1 Gb ports from the server to the switch and up to four 10 Gb ports for upstream high-speed connections. And the G8264R provides an ultra-dense switch with up to sixty-four 10 Gb ports and also has 40 Gb capability when you choose to deploy it.

Power Systems sellers will appreciate working with the familiar AAS/WTAAS ordering and e-config systems. In this structure, the switches are ordered using 1455-24E for the G8124ER, 1455-48E for the G8052R, and 1455-64C for the G8264R.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM . Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.

Warranty period

System Hardware - Three years

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to a full warranty effective on the date of installation of the machine. An IBM part or feature that replaces a previously installed part or feature assumes the remainder of the warranty period for the replaced part or feature. An IBM part or feature added to a machine without replacing a previously installed part or feature is subject to a full warranty effective on its date of installation. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature is the same as the machine it is installed in.

Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of warranty service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone, or electronically via an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM . You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. If applicable to your product, parts considered Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty service.

Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country- and location-specific information.
