High Density Ethernet Switch with
48 Ports of 10GbE SFP+ and 4 Ports
of 40GbE QSFP+
Product Overview
The Edge-Core ECS5610-52S is a 48-port 10GbE SFP+ with 4-port of 40GbE switch designed from the ground up to be deployed and utilized in
medium to large data centers and Enterprise Campus. The ECS5610-52S is designed for high-availability and mission-critical Enterprise
environments in 1RU enclosure with redundant, hot swappable, load-sharing PSUs along with hot swappable fan try with n+1 redundant fans; and
port-to-power and power-to-port airflow direction options.
High Density L2 10G Ethernet Switch
Key Features and Benefits
Performance and Scalability
The ECS5610-52S is a high density 10Gb Ethernet switch encased in a
small 1U form factor. This switch meets the high performance, availability
and network scaling requirements of enterprise and cloud data centers.
Deployed as part of a distributed spine network, the ECS5610-52S
provides full line rate switching at Layer 2 or Layer 3 across 48*10GbE
ports with 4 x 40GbE uplinks.
The ECS5610-52S is capable of 1.28Tbps of network throughput. Given
the demand for bandwidth brought on by server virtualization.
Continuous Availability
Dual hot-swappable power supplies allow the system to continue
operation even in the event of a single power supply failure. To ensure
longevity, the ECS5610-52S employs data center-friendly front to back
cooling, dissipating unwanted heat efficiently and effectively.
Data Center Requirements
With Ethernet fast becoming the de facto standard for the
interconnection of data center devices, the ECS5610-52S is conceived
and designed to overcome the challenges in a high traffic load
environment, ensuring that traffic flows smoothly through the network
without delay. It features Jumbo frame up to 12K bytes.
802.1Qau congestion notification
802.1Qbb priority flow control
802.1Qaz enhanced transmission selection
Energy Efficiency
The ECS5610-52S is easy on the environment as well as your energy
budget. 175W typical power consumption at full line rate forwarding
over 48 x 10GbE DAC cables and 4*40Gbase-SR4.
Simple and Flexible Management
The ECS5610-52S features both an user-friendly web interface and a
command line interface for the advanced user. SNMP based
management is also fully supported. When used in conjunction with
ECView Pro, Edge-Core own network management system, the task of
monitoring and provisioning can be easily accomplished.
The ECS5610-52S is designed to fit in various applications in the
Enterprise environment. These applications include:
TOR Switch for 10GE Data Center: The ECS5610-52S can be
deployed as a ToR switch to interconnect up to 48 units of 10GE
servers in the same rack while providing 4 ports of 40GbE uplinks to
interconnect to the data center SPINE switches.
SPINE Switch for 1GE Data Center: The ECS5610-52S can also be
deployed as a SPINE switch interconnecting up to 48 ECS4510 or
ECS4610 together in a star network topology. In this deployment
scenario, ECS4510/4610 will act as a TOR switch interconnecting up
to 48 units of 1GE severs in the same rack.
Campus 10GE Aggregation Switch: In the Enterprise campus
environment, the ECS5610-52S can also be deployed as an
aggregation switch interconnecting up to 48 ECS4510 or ECS4610
together to form a medium-size L2 or L3 campus network. In this
deployment scenario, the 4 40-GbE uplinks can be used to
interconnect multiple ECS5610 to form a large-size campus network.
For a world always connected…
