The Edge-Core white-box AS5600-52X switch meets the high-performance, availability, and network scaling requirements of enterprise and cloud data centers. The AS5600-52X provides full line-rate switching at Layer 2 or Layer 3 across 64 x 10 GbE ports, or 48 x 10 GbE ports with 4 x 40 GbE uplinks. The switch can be deployed either as a Top-of-Rack switch, or as part of a 10 GbE or 40 GbE distributed spine forming a folded CLOS data center fabric.

AS5600-52X hardware is designed for data centers with a high port density of 64 x 10 GbE in a 1 RU enclosure; redundant, hot- swappable, load-sharing AC or 48VDC* PSUs; fan tray with n+1 redundant fans; and port-to-power or power-to-port airflow options.

DCSS switching software is designed for data center fabrics with up to tens of thousands of dual stack IPv4/IPv6 servers. The switch provides a full set of Layer 2 switching features used for aggregating servers within a rack, or across an easily managed medium sized data center fabric. A full set of IPv4/IPv6 routing features, including ECMP, OSPF, and BGP, supports large Layer 3 fabrics.
