The ECS5520 series is comprised of two types of switches, each with sixteen 10GbE SFP+ ports or 10GBASE-T ports, along with two 40GbE uplink ports. These switches are specifically engineered for carrier or enterprise aggregation, or for use in small data center top-of-rack configurations.
Perfectly suited for traditional three-tier aggregation or core topologies and folded-Clos architectures, the ECS5520 series serves with a 2:1 oversubscription. These switches are loaded with features that deliver high availability, extensive security, robust multicast control, and advanced QoS to network aggregation, all while ensuring easy management.
Moreover, the switch supports the most advanced IPv6 Management, IPv6 security, and IPv6 multicast control, keeping pace with the increasing deployment of IPv6. This allows ISPs to broaden their services from residential to business users by offering a more dependable and resilient network (ITU-T G.8032 ERPS), L2 VPNs, and advanced OAM (Operations, Administration, and Maintenance) functions to guarantee service-level agreements.
