The ESP-9212 is a new generation of switch from Advantech Networks and Communications Group and is optimized for use in software-defined networks (SDN) requiring 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity. It combines a high performance, low-latency Broadcom StrataXGS® Trident II BCM56854 switch for up to 680Gbps of forwarding bandwidth and a quad-core Intel® Xeon® E3-1265L v2 processor, providing a powerful and flexible platform that supports enhanced features essential for top-of-the-rack deployment in modern data center switching installations. Data center networks require increasingly denser 10GbE and 40GbE connectivity at the access and aggregation layers in order to address the higher speed network interface cards being deployed in servers and the increased link utilization due to widespread use of virtualization.
With fiber support for six 40GbE QSFP ports and forty-four 10GbE SFP ports in a 1U rackmount design, the ESP-9212 can be used to build highly scalable, feature-rich, top-of-rack switches, and aggregation equipment to connect big data, cloud and optimized workloads in the data center.
Redundant, hot swappable, AC or DC power supplies and fans, along with IPMI 2.0 and OpenIPMI hardware management interfaces provide the high availability and management features which equip the switch for managing business-critical traffic. In addition, the front-to-rear or rear-to-front cooling capabilities of the ESP-9212 help to reduce air conditioning costs by matching the airflow of other servers in the rack. One 10/100/1000 Ethernet RJ45 port and two serial ports are available for out-of-band management with three USB ports available for installation and maintenance needs. Two 128GB SSD devices within the chassis provide storage for boot images allowing external network nodes to be loaded and booted from the switch. Platform builds using a wide range of LGA-1155 processors are possible; please contact your local Advantech sales office for details.
