The Edgecore DCS560 is a high-performance, low-latency switch for high-performance data centers.

Application Scenarios:
  • Spine Switch: A next-generation, highest-capacity switch for data center spine use case. Breakout options include 2 x 400G, 4 x 200G, and 8 x 100G per port, with a maximum of 320 logical ports. Offers reduced cost and power per bit. Scalable and enables migration to 400G leaf connectivity in data centers.
  • AI/ML Clusters: Standards-based (Ethernet) networking for AI/ML training, leveraging low latency and high-throughput RoCEv2. Reduces Job Completion Time (JCT) using the cognitive routing and congestion management capabilities of the switch. Fully programmable telemetry enables sophisticated on-chip applications for heightened network insight and efficient network management.
  • High-Performance Computing: The large number of high-capacity Ethernet ports enables server interfaces to transition to higher speeds and denser networks. Enables the virtualization of compute and storage with VxLAN switching and routing.
