AS6700-32X

40GBE DATA CENTER SWITCH

AS6700-32X is a 20-Port 40G QSFP+ plus 2 x 6-port 40G QSFP+ modules switch with ONIE software installer. AS6700-32X embedded Broadcom Trident II 1.28Tbps and Freescale P2041 CPU as well as dual 110-230VAC 400W PSUs included and port-to-power airflow. AS6700-32X is 3-year Hardware Warranty.

Overview

The Edge-Core AS6700-32X switch is a Top-of-Rack (TOR) or spine switch for high-performance data centers. In a compact 1RU form factor, the switch provides line-rate L2 and L3 switching across up to 32 x QSFP ports, supporting up to 32 x 40 GbE connections or 104 x 10 GbE connections. The AS6700-32X can be deployed as a TOR switch supporting 10 GbE or 40 GbE server connections, or as a spine switch, supporting 10 GbE or 40 GbE spine interconnects. The switch provides 20 fixed QSFP ports and two module slots, each capable of supporting a 6 x QSFP option module or a future NPU module for application processing. The AS6700-32X is a bare-metal switch loaded with the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE), which supports the installation of compatible independent switchOS offerings.
