Product Detail

The Edgecore DCS208 switch is designed to meet the high-performance, availability, and network-scaling requirements of enterprise and cloud data centers. It provides full line-rate switching at Layer 2 or Layer 3 across 48 x 10GbE ports and 6 x 40GbE uplinks.

The DCS208 switch can be deployed either as a Top-of-Rack switch, or as part of a 10GbE or 40GbE distributed spine. This forms 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 DCS208 hardware provides the high availability features required for data center operation. These include redundant, hot-swappable AC or -48 VDC PSUs or 12 VDC power input; fan with 4+1 redundant fan modules; and port-to-power or power-to-port airflow options.

The DCS208 is an ideal Top-of-Rack switch for virtualized data centers, with its support of VXLAN and NVGRE tunneling functions in hardware. This open network switch is loaded with the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE), which supports the installation of compatible Network Operating System software. This includes both open source options and commercial NOS offerings.
