The Edgecore AS7512-32X switch is a Top-of-Rack (TOR) or spine switch designed for high-performance data centers. This switch is compact, fitting into a 1RU form factor, and provides line-rate L2 and L3 switching across to 32 x QSFP28 ports. It supports up to 32 x 40/100 GbE, 64 x 50 GbE, or 128 x 10/25 GbE connections.
The AS7512-32X can be deployed in two ways. It can serve as a TOR switch supporting 10/25/50 GbE to servers with 40/50/100 GbE uplinks. Alternatively, it can function as a spine switch supporting 40/50/100 GbE spine interconnects.
One of the key features of the AS7512-32X is that it is a bare-metal switch. It comes loaded with the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE), which facilitates the installation of compatible Network Operating System (NOS) offerings.
