The Edgecore AS5916-54XKS switch meets the high-performance, availability, and network-scaling requirements of cloud data centers and carrier access providers. The AS5916-54XKS provides switching at Layer 2 or Layer 3 across 48 x 10 GbE ports and 6 x 100 GbE uplinks. The switch can be deployed either as a Top-of-Rack switch, as part of a 100 GbE or 40 GbE distributed spine, forming a non-blocking folded-Clos data center fabric, or as a carrier access switch. The switch is rack mountable in either a standard 19-inch rack, or with an Open Rack Switch Adapter in a 21-inch Open Rack. The AS5916-54XKS hardware provides high-availability features, including; redundant, hot-swappable AC or -48 VDC PSUs, or 12 VDC power input; fans with 5+1 redundant fan modules; and port-to-power or power-to-port airflow options.
