The Edgecore DCS201 switch meets the high-performance, availability, and network-scaling requirements of enterprise and cloud data centers. The DCS201 provides full line-rate switching at Layer 2 or Layer 3 across 48 x 10GbE ports and 6 x 100GbE uplinks. The switch can be deployed either as a Top-of-Rack switch, or as part of a 40GbE or 100GbE distributed spine, forming a non-blocking folded-Clos data center fabric. The switch is rack mountable in a standard 19-inch rack.

The DCS201 hardware provides the high availability features required for data center operation, including redundant, hot-swappable AC or -48 VDC PSUs, 4+1 redundant fan modules, and front-to-back or back-to-front airflow options. The DCS201 is an ideal top-of-rack switch for virtualized data centers with support for VXLAN and NVGRE tunneling functions in hardware. This open network switch is loaded with the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE), which supports the installation of compatible Network Operating System soſtware, including the open source options, plus commercial NOS offerings.
