720G Data Center Switch

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

 Cost-effective                               10G RJ45 Interfaces
 Resiliancy                                      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 port-to-power or power-to-port 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.
