fiber-mart.com Optics Solutions for 100G Switches

by www.fiber-mart.com

As the highly dynamic cloud data center networks is continuing to evolve, many new protocols and server technologies have been introduced, which brings ever increasing bandwidth demands and accelerate the need for dense 25 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet switching in both leaf and spine tiers of modern networks. Under this situation, fiber-mart.com currently launches S5850/S8050 series 100G switches including two configurations: S8050-20Q4C and S5850-48S2Q4C, to meet the market demands.  All the 100G switches are built for high-density performance and to satisfy the large scale data centers and enterprise applications. This article intends to explore the optics solutions for the S5850/S8050 series 100G switches.

Brief Introduction to  fiber-mart.com S5850/S8050 Series 100G Switches

The S5850-48S2Q4C or the S8050-20Q4C switches are high performance Ethernet switches, coming with completely system software with comprehensive protocols and applications to facilitate rapid service deployment and management for both traditional L2/L3 networks and data center networks. As their names show, both of the two 100G switches have 40G QSFP+ and 100G QSFP28 ports, which enable flexible choices of port speed providing unparalleled flexibility and the ability to seamlessly transition data centers to the next generation of Ethernet performance.

As shown in the following front panel map of S8050-20Q4C, there are mainly three types of ports: 10G SFP+ port, 40G QSFP+ port and 100G QSFP28 port. The 20x40G QSFP+ ports and 4x100G QSFP28 ports can provide 1.2Tbps non-blocking throughput and 1200Mpps Layer2&Layer3, data center packet forwarding rate with wire-speed for all ports.

S5850-48S2Q4C (as shown in the following picture) is another 100G switch which has 48x10G SFP+ ports, 2x40G QSFP+ ports and 4x100G QSFP28 ports. These ports can offer 0.96Tbps non-blocking throughput and 1200Mpps Layer2 & Layer3, data center packet forwarding rate with wire-speed for all ports.


Application Examples of S5850/S8050 Series 100G Switches

Fiber-MART.COM S5850/S8050 series 100G switches can provide access ports for high density 10GE servers, and 40GE uplink ports to Aggregation or Core switches. Here is an enterprise data center network application. This leaf-spine network architecture consists of two S8050-20Q4C 100G switches and four S5850-48S6Q 40G switches which with 48 SFP+ ports and 6 QSFP+ ports to provide 0.72Tbps non-blocking throughput. Each leaf switch connects to every switch in the network fabric. In this application, spine switches need to have high-density port to be the core of the architecture.
