The Edgecore DCS202 data center switch is designed to meet the high-performance, reliability, and scalability needs of both enterprise and cloud data centers. It offers full line-rate switching at Layer 2 or Layer 3 across 48 x 10GbE ports and 6 x 100GbE uplinks.
This switch can be utilized as a Top-of-Rack switch or as part of a 40GbE or 100GbE distributed spine, creating a non-blocking folded-Clos data center fabric. It is designed to fit perfectly in a standard 19-inch rack.
The DCS202 hardware comes with high availability features necessary for data center operations. These include redundant, hot-swappable AC or -48 VDC power supply units (PSUs), 4+1 redundant fan modules, and options for port-to-power or power-to-port airflow.
With support for VXLAN and NVGRE tunneling functions in hardware, the DCS202 is an excellent Top-of-Rack switch for virtualized data centers. This open network switch comes with the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE), which facilitates the installation of a compatible Network Operating System (NOS) software. This includes both open source options and commercial NOS offerings.
