AS5512-54X 10GbE data center switch

AS5512-54X 10GbE data center switch

The AS5512-54X provides full line-rate switching at Layer 2 or Layer 3 across 48 x 10GbE ports and 6 x 40GbE uplinks. 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. ??Available in Taiwan and China only.



  • • Cost-effective, bare-metal switch infrastructure for data center fabric.
  • • 48 x SFP+ switch ports, supporting 10GbE (DAC, 10GBASE-SR/LR) or 1GbE (1000BASE-T/SX/LX).
