Main Features

The WS-SW-TRIP2+ is an ideal Top-of-Rack switch which provides full line-rate switching at Layer 2 or Layer 3 across 48 x 10GbE ports and 6 x 40GbE uplinks. It is also a great option for virtualized data centers, with its support of VXLAN and NVGRE tunneling functions in hardware.

The switch can be deployed either as a Top-of-Rack switch, or as part of a 10GbE or 40GbE distributed spine, forming a non-blocking folded-Clos data center fabric. The switch is rack mountable in either a standard 19 inch rack, or with the Open Rack Switch Adapter in the 21 inch Open Rack.

  • WS-SW-TRIP2+T has 48 x RJ-45 Copper, supporting 10GBASE-T, 1000BASE-T and 100BASE-TX Ethernet on Cat 6, Cat 6 A and Cat 7 twisted-pair cable, plus 6x QSFP+ (40G) modules.

  • WS-SW-TRIP2+X has 48 x SFP/SFP+, supporting 1G or 10G optical modules, plus 6x QSFP+ (40G) modules.

The WS-SW-TRIP2+ hardware provides the high availability features required for data center operation, including:

  • redundant, hot-swappable AC or -48 VDC PSUs or 12 VDC power input
  • fan with 4+1 redundant fan modules
  • port-to-power or power-to-port airflow options.

Specifications

The switch has a compact form-factor, and redundant power supplies and fans.
