This switch, in a compact 1RU form factor, offers line-rate L2 and L3 switching across up to 32 QSFP+ ports. It supports up to 32 x 40GbE connections or 104 x 10GbE connections.

The AS6701-32X-C can be deployed as a TOR switch supporting 10GbE or 40GbE server connections. Alternatively, it can be used as a spine switch, supporting 10GbE or 40GbE spine interconnects. This versatile switch provides 20 fixed QSFP+ ports and two modular slots.

Each of these slots is capable of supporting 6 x QSFP+ ports or a future NPU module. This module can be used for deep packet inspection, traffic analysis, or other applications. The AS6701-32X-C comes with Cumulus Linux, the leading network OS for data center switching systems.
