WEDGE 100-32X

100GBE DATA CENTER SWITCH

The Wedge 100-32X switch provides 32 QSFP28 ports that can each run at 100GbE/40GbE, or as 4 x 25 GbE/4 x 10 GbE/2 x 50 GbE through breakout cables.

Overview

The Edgecore Wedge 100-32X is a commercial product based on Facebook’s Wedge 100 design. Facebook designed the Wedge 100 as a 32 x 100 GbE Top-of-Rack switch optimized for web-scale data centers, and submitted the design to the Open Compute Project. Edgecore’s parent company, Accton Technology, performed the design validation for Facebook and manufactures the Wedge 100 for Facebook’s deployment. Edgecore now offers the Wedge 100 as a fully supported commercial product to enable network operators to increase capacity with 25 G and 100 G networking.

The Wedge 100 switch provides 32 QSFP28 ports that can each run at 100 GbE/40 GbE, or as 4 x 25 GbE/ 4 x 10 GbE/2 x 50 GbE through breakout cables. The Wedge 100 design is based on the Broadcom BCM56960 Tomahawk 3.2 Tbps switch silicon. The Wedge CPU subsystem is the COM-E CPU module, based on the Intel Atom E3800 x86 processor. The use of this standard CPU system, coupled with the BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) on the Wedge main board, enables the Wedge 100 to be provisioned and managed using similar tools used by data center operators for their server and application environments.
