The AS4600-54T is a high-performance Gigabit Ethernet Layer 3 switch, with 48 RJ-45 GbE ports, 4 x 10 GbE SFP+ ports, and two module slots each with 40 GbE bandwidth for additional uplinks. The switch provides the high-availability features required in a data center top-of-rack switch, including redundant hot-swappable AC PSUs, hot-swappable redundant fans, and port-to-power or power-to-port airflow options. The two expansion module slots accept 1 x 40G QSFP modules to provide two 40G ports or eight 10G ports through breakout cables. This additional bandwidth makes the switch ideal for applications mixing 1 GbE and 10 GbE nodes in a rack, or to support 40G uplinks to a spine network.

AS4600-54T switching software is designed for large data center fabrics supporting 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 and IPv6 routing features, including ECMP, OSPF, and BGP, supports integration with a large Layer 3 data center fabric.
