The Edge-Core AS5710-54X switch meets the high-performance, availability, and network-scaling requirements of enterprise and cloud data centers. The AS5710-54X provides full line-rate switching at Layer 2 or Layer 3 across 48 x 10 GbE ports and 6 x 40 GbE uplinks. The switch can be deployed either as a Top-of-Rack switch, or as part of a 10 GbE or 40 GbE distributed spine, forming a non-blocking folded CLOS data center fabric. The switch is rack mountable in either a standard 19 inch rack, or with the Open Rack Switch Adapter in the 21 inch Open Rack.
The AS5710-54X hardware provides the high availability features required for data center operation, including; redundant, hot-swappable AC or -48VDC PSUs or 12VDC power input; fan tray with 4+1 redundant fans; and port-to-power or power-to-port airflow options. The AS5710-54X is an ideal Top-of-Rack switch for virtualized data centers, with its support of VXLAN and NVGRE tunneling functions in hardware.
