The Edgecore Wedge100S-32X is a commercial product based on Facebook's Wedge100S design. Facebook designed the Wedge100S as a 32 x 100 GbE top-of-rack switch optimized for web-scale data centers, and submitted the design to the Open Compute Project. Edgecore's parent company, Accton Technology, performed the design validation for Facebook and manufactures the Wedge100S for Facebook’s deployment. Edgecore now offers the Wedge100S as a fully supported commercial product to enable network operators to increase capacity with 25 G and 100 G networking. The Wedge100S switch provides 32 QSFP28 ports that can each run at 100 GbE/40 GbE, or as 4 x 25 GbE/ 4 x 10 GbE/2 x 50 GbE through breakout cables. The Wedge100S design is based on the Broadcom BCM56960 Tomahawk 3.2 Tbps switch silicon. The Wedge CPU subsystem is the COM-E CPU module, based on the Intel Xeon Broadwell-DE D1508 processor. The use of this standard CPU system, coupled with the BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) on the Wedge main board, enables the Wedge100S to be provisioned and managed using similar tools used by data center operators for their server and application environments.
