MLAG support. Hot-swappable power supplies and fans.
Leaf-Spine, Top-of-Rack, End-of-Row
10G and 40G port combinations for high bandwidth Leaf-Spine, ToR, or EoR network architecture topologies.
Open Network Switching (ONS)
ONIE provides the option to install a preferred Network Operating System, such as Pluribus Netvisor OS, or activate the pre-loaded D-Link OS.
Supports OpenFlow v1.0/1.3 and Software-Defined Networks, like Cumulus Networks.
Mini-USB console port. RJ-45 dedicated management port. USB-2.0 port. Industry-standard full CLI.
Limited Lifetime Warranty
Register and enjoy Limited Lifetime Warranty support from one of the global leaders in the industry.
Future-proof your network.
Designed with up to 1.44 Tbps of simultaneous high throughput, high port density, and ultra-low latency to accommodate scale and requirements. Ideal as aggregation switches in enterprise environments, as well as Top-of-Rack, Leaf-Spine, or End-of-Rack core Ethernet switches in data centers.
High Availability and Reliability
Both the fans and PSUs are hot-swappable to increase uptime, and front-to-back airflow allows the creation of optimal cooling configurations.
MLAG enables efficient network topologies that also increase uptime with dual-management, control planes, and upgrades that don’t affect services.
Enables both PSUs to evenly distribute the load to increase reliability and lifetime.
Maintains uptime even if a power supply fails.
Comprehensive Layer 2 & Layer 3 Capabilities
L2 features include L2 switching, L2 multicast, advanced Quality of Service (QoS), and robust security features.
Advanced L3 routing for enterprise integration, including OSPF, BGP, Graceful Restart, Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD), and L3 multicast.
And support for MLAG, MLD Snooping, IP interface, DVMRP v3, PIM-DM, and includes data center features like 802.1Qaz, 802.1Qau, and 802.1Qbb.
Virtualisation and Data Center Features
VXLAN allows deployments of larger and more flexible VLAN architectures by using a 24-bit ID, which enables deployments of up to 16 million isolated logical networks across Layer 3 subnets to accommodate the increasing scale of virtualized cloud environments.
Uses this network identifier to address L2 segments.
Bare Metal and Open Networking Switches
The DXS-5000 supports Open Networking, which provides innovative third-party operating systems and software options. This lowers costs by separating software from hardware and increases network agility and flexibility.
ONIE gives you the option to install a preferred Network OS, such as the Pluribus Netvisor OS, or activate the pre-loaded D-Link OS.
With support for standards-based tools and standards-based applications, Open Networking simplifies scalability and future-proofs the network.
