A Powerful 10GBASE-T Top-of-Rack Switch for Data Center and Cloud Computing
Datacenter networks is facing a major paradigm shift toward the disaggregation of software and hardware. This move, combined with the benefits of software-defined networking (SDN) allows network administrators respond quickly to changing business requirements at a lower capital cost as well as reducing the network operations complexity.
QuantaMesh BMS products offer higher performance, increased availability, and better serviceability to meet datacenter installation environment. QuantaMesh T3048-LY9 supports 48 100/1000/10GBase-T ports and 6 40G QSFP+ ports in a compact rack unit size. By levering the new generation merchant silicon chips, T3048-LY9 is a high performance high density Ethernet switch with an affordable price for the deployment of data center infrastructure. Moreover, the CPU board design of T3048-LY9 provides option for 3rd party software choose. Finally, with ONIE (Open Network Installation Environment) pre-loaded, it provides the flexibility and allows choice of network operating system supported by different software vendors. This provides agile installation process and faster response for the changing business demand.
