ADARA Axis Switch
ADARA Axis 5800 Series
Product Highlights
Flexible high-performance switch for
SDN applications.
• 48 x RJ-45 Copper, supporting 10GBASE-T,
1000BASE-T and 100BASE-TX Ethernet on Cat
6, Cat 6 A and Cat 7 twisted-pair cable
• 48 x RJ-45 Copper, supporting 1000BASE-T
and 100BASE-TX on Cat 5e UTP, Cat 6, Cat 6A
and Cat 7 twisted-pair cable
• 6 x 40 QSFP switch ports, each supporting
The ADARA Axis 5800 Switch switch meets the high-performance, availability, and
network-scaling requirements of enterprise and cloud data centers. The AS5812-54T
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.
40GbE (DAC, 40GBASE-SR4/LR4) or 4 x 10GbE
(DAC or fiber breakout cable)
• Full line-rate Layer 2 or Layer 3 forwarding of
720 Gbps
Robust Hardware
• Hot-swappable, redundant PSUs
• Hot-swappable, redundant fans
The 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 AXIS 5800 is an ideal Topof-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.
ADARA software running on this switch provides software solutions including OpenFlow
Controller, L2-L3 switching, and other SDN applications.
• Hot/Cold Aisle with port-to-power and portto-port airflow SKUs
• Management: Ethernet and console RJ-45
