The E7 also features embedded Layer 2 through 7 switching features. The E7 is designed to support existing and future business needs including Voice over IP (Internet Protocol), e-commerce, ERP (enterprise resource planning) applications and call centre management. The E7 has modular pricing – the chassis is US$6,995, power supplies are $1,995 each and switching modules are priced at $12,995 each. Each chassis can accommodate up to seven switching modules.
