The Edge-Core AS6700-32X switch is a Top-of-Rack (TOR) or spine switch for high-performance data centers. In a compact 1RU form factor, the switch provides line-rate L2 and L3 switching across up to 32 x QSFP ports, supporting up to 32 x 40 GbE connections or 104 x 10 GbE connections. The AS6700-32X can be deployed as a TOR switch supporting 10 GbE or 40 GbE server connections, or as a spine switch, supporting 10 GbE or 40 GbE spine interconnects. The switch provides 20 fixed QSFP ports and two module slots, each capable of supporting a 6 x QSFP option module or a future NPU module for application processing.

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 support large Layer 3 fabrics.
