The AS4600-54T-C is a high-performance Gigabit Ethernet switch, equipped with 48 RJ-45 GbE ports, 4 x 10GbE SFP+ ports, and two module slots each with 40GbE bandwidth for additional uplinks. This switch is designed to provide the high-availability features that are essential in a data center top-of-rack switch.
These features include redundant hot-swappable AC or -48VDC PSUs, or 12VDC power input; hot-swappable redundant fans, and port-to-power or power-to-port airflow options. The two expansion module slots can accept 1 x 40G QSFP modules to provide two 40G ports or eight 10G ports through breakout cables.
This additional bandwidth makes the switch perfect for applications that mix 1GbE and 10 GbE nodes in a rack, or to support 40G uplinks to a spine network. The AS4600-54T-C comes pre-installed with Cumulus Linux â the leading network OS for data center switching systems.
