[It's] most suitable in [a] data center environment. You can also use [it] to connect servers to get high availability uplinks. Bundle links (port channels) to get more bandwidth for connected devices. Use different models for 1G, 10G, 40G requirements. Split 40G ports into 10G ports in some cases. You can also use as access layer switches as well as distribution layer switches.
