The Next Wave Enterprise Data Center 25G Switch
Data center networks face changes with hardware and meeting the requirements of the software it hosts. Quanta Cloud Technology provides a series of Bare Metal Switches, the QCT BMS product line, that addresses these changes in the data center market. The QCT BMS product lines support speeds up to 100G speeds on its Ethernet Switches. To meet the requirements of high performance, high availability, fast scale out, low latency performance, and continuous serviceability in data center applications, the QCT BMS product line is the best choice.
BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) embedded on the server as the core of the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) architecture can now be implemented in the Ethernet switch. In addition to providing health monitoring of the temperature, power status, and cooling fans; BMC also aids in the deployment and management of software and hardware peripherals.
QCT BMS T4048-IX8 supports 48 SFP28 and 8 QSFP28 (10/25/40/50/100GbE speed) ports and is equipped with BMC in a compact rack unit size. By levering merchant silicon chip, T4048-IX8 is fully compliant with IEEE 802.3by and is a high performance high density Ethernet switch with advanced features such as smart table, dynamic load balancing, and VxLAN/RIOT support. T4048-IX8 also improves the performance for larger packet buffers adn reduced latency. With ONIE (Open Network Installation Environment) pre-loaded T4048-IX8 can be used for multiple network operating system which supports ONIE installer to achieve agile installation and fast response for the changing demand.
