Edgecore Networks introduces the ECS5520-18X— a high performance L2+/Lite L3 10G Ethernet Aggregation switch designed for carrier/enterprise aggregation or small data center top-of-rack

Edgecore Networks, a leading provider of traditional and open network solutions for enterprises, data centers, and telecommunication service providers, is pleased to announce its latest L2+/Lite L3 10G Ethernet Aggregation switch the ECS5520-18X, a high-performance 10GbE managed switch with two 40GbE uplink ports, designed for carrier/enterprise aggregation or small data center top-of-rack.
ECS5520-18X delivers wire-speed switching performance on all 10GbE ports, taking full advantage of aggregating high-performance Gigabit access switches with 10G uplinks, or ToR switches with links to 10G rack servers, significantly improving the responsiveness of applications as well as file and multimedia transfer times. The two built-in 40G QSFP+ ports provide uplink flexibility, which create 40Gbps high-speed uplinks to service provider core or spine switches, or corporate and campus networks, reducing bottlenecks and increasing the performance of the access network.
The ECS5520 series is an ideal solution for traditional three-tier aggregation or core topologies and folded-Clos architectures. The switch is packed with features that bring high availability, comprehensive security, robust multicast control, and advance QoS to network aggregation, while maintaining simple management. Internet Service Providers can expand their services from home to business users by providing a more reliable and resilient network (ITU-T G.8032 ERPS), L2 VPNs, and advanced OAM (Operations, Administration, and Maintenance) functions to ensure service-level agreements.
