The New Generation 10GBASE-T Ethernet Switch for Data Center Networking
The QuantaMesh T3048-LY9A is a new generation 10GBASE-T solution for data center networking which provides 48 triple speed (100/1000/10GBase-T) ports and 6 QSFP+ ports in a 1U form factor. With 28-nm process PHY design, T3048-LY9A provides more power saving. The 40G QSFP+ port in T3048-LY9A can be independently configured as 40GbE or 4 x 10GbE so that the maximum 10G can be supported up to 72 ports. With traditional L2/L3 features support as well as software defined network functions - OpenFlow, T3048-LY9A provides hybrid solutions for the network deployment. By leveraging the benefits of 10GBASE-T - longer distance connection from switch to server, T3048-LY9A can be flexibility located in ToR, MoR or EoR position for rack implementation to offer Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) networking deployment more cost effective performance and perform the best TCO.
With the rapid adoption of cloud computing and the proliferation of big data and parallel calculations, the need for data center networking devices is growing exponentially, making network automation a critical factor. Supporting auto installation, RESTful, Ansible and PSME (Pooled System Managment Engine), T3048-LY9A facilities easy deployment to build-up a mass data center with infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).
Network virtualization is becoming an important topic of datacenters. QuantaMesh T3048-LY9A offers hardware-based VXLAN feature to support virtual machine mobility. Not limited by 4K VLANs, VXLAN enables for the network scale-out across L3 subnets and can support up to 16.7M possible virtual networks.
The QuantaMesh T3048-LY9A is designed for high availability from both hardware and software perspectives. The key features include:
Software Defined Network (SDN)
SDN has emerged as a new approach to support open, vendor-agnostic, and programmable networks. T3048-LY9A is equipped with OpenFlow v1.3 features to fulfill the needs of modern data center applications.
