AS7712-32X-EC

100 GbE L3 Switch with SDN Capability

The AS7712-32X-EC is a 32-port 100 GbE QSFP28 switch designed for carrier/enterprise aggregation, data center top-of-rack/spine and SDN-enabled networks. It is an ideal solution for traditional three-tier aggregation or core and folded-Clos architectures, serving with a 1:1 non-oversubscription.


 

Overview

The AS7712-32X-EC is a 32-port 100 GbE QSFP28 switch designed for carrier/enterprise aggregation, data center top-of-rack/spine and SDN-enabled networks. It is an ideal solution for traditional three-tier aggregation or core and folded-Clos architectures, serving with a 1:1 non-oversubscription.

The switch runs EdgeCOS, providing traditional Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching functionality, as well as OpenFlow 1.3*, leveraging Broadcom’s OpenFlow Data Plane Abstraction (OF-DPA*) that delivers the most out of the switching silicon. By using OF-DPA, EdgeCOS provides more tables, larger table sizes, and a streamlined OpenFlow pipelining, compared to legacy OpenVswitch-based software solutions.
