48 x 10G Base-T, 6 x 40G QSFP+ switch ports with Trident 2+
High-performance switch for enterprise and cloud data centers

10G RJ45 Interfaces
Front to Back/ Back to Front Airflow


The Edgecore DCS209 switch meets the high-performance, availability, and network-scaling requirements of enterprise and cloud data centers. The DCS209 provides full line-rate switching at Layer 2 or Layer 3 across 48 x 10GbE ports and 6 x 40GbE uplinks. The switch can be deployed either as a Top-of-Rack switch, or as part of a 10GbE or 40GbE distributed spine, forming a non-blocking folded-Clos data center fabric. The switch is rack mountable in either a standard 19 inch rack, or with the Open Rack Switch Adapter in the 21 inch Open Rack.

The DCS209 hardware provides the high-availability features required for data center operation, including redundant, hot-swappable AC power input, 4+1 redundant fan modules, and front-to-back or back-to-front airflow options. The DCS209 is an ideal top-of-rack switch for virtualized data centers, with its support of VXLAN and NVGRE tunneling functions in hardware, leveraging existing Cat 5e/Cat 6/Cat 6A/Cat 7 cabling infrastructure that saves further investment. 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 options, plus commercial NOS offerings.
