High-speed and high-density core switch in a data center with 64 x 400GE QSFP-DD ports in the 4 RU space, delivering scalable,
high-performance and high-bandwidth services and coping with interconnection on a large data center network



IPv4/IPv6 Host Routing Entries


Hardware-level Redundancy, Ensuring Service Continuity

Hot-Swappable Redundant Power Modules

Hot-Swappable Redundant Fan Modules

Power modules in 2+2 redundancy mode, failover in seconds, and power module replacement without network interruption, providing double protection for links

Communication at the Maximum Distance of 120 km and Easy DCI

400GE ZR/ZR+ optical modules are used for interconnection reducing intermediate transmission devices and helping a cloud or hyper-scale
data center network to adapt to growing high-bandwidth services.

Lossless Ethernet with RDMA E2E Communication
and Zero Packet Loss

With RDMA technology, data does not need to be handled by the CPU during device communication. This reduces the CPU burden
and effectively solves the network latency problem.
PFC+ECN, intelligent data exchange, and packet loss prevention, ensuring lossless data transmission

Telemetry-based Network Monitoring and Automated O&M,
Making Management Simple and Efficient

The switch enabled with telemetry provides clear data status and hierarchy.
The switch uses the push mode to proactively collect and push information and to provide sub-second-level network monitoring in real time,
making network management more efficient and accurate.
