Product Detail

The Edgecore DCS500 is a high-performance data center switch, ideal for Top-of-Rack (TOR) or spine switch applications. This switch delivers line-rate L2 and L3 switching across its 64 x QSFP28 ports. Each port supports 1 x 100 GbE or 1x 40 GbE, or alternatively, through breakout cables, 4 x 25 GbE or 4 x 10 GbE.

The DCS500 can be utilized as a TOR switch, supporting 10/25 GbE to servers with 40/100 GbE uplinks. Alternatively, it can function as a spine switch, supporting 40/100 GbE spine interconnects. This versatile open network switch comes equipped with the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE).

ONIE enables the installation of compatible Network Operating System software. This includes open source options such as Open Network Linux and SONiC, as well as commercial NOS offerings. The Edgecore DCS500 is a robust and flexible solution for any high-performance data center.
