The Edgecore DCS203 switch is a Top-of-Rack (TOR) switch for high-performance data centers. In a compact 1RU form factor, the switch provides line-rate L2 and L3 switching across the 48 x SFP28 + 8 x QSFP28 ports, and each QSFP28 port can be configured as 4 x 25 GbE, 1 x 40 GbE, or 4 x 10 GbE by using DAC breakout cables. The DCS203 can be deployed as a TOR switch supporting 10/25 GbE to servers with 40/100 GbE uplinks. This open network switch is loaded with the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE), which supports the installation of compatible Network Operating System (NOS) soſtware, including the open source plus commercial NOS offerings.
