Feature Highlights

QuantaMesh T3048-LY8

A Powerful Spine/Leaf Switch for Datacenter and Cloud Computing

The QuantaMesh T3048-LY8 is a high performance and low latency layer 2/3/4 Ethernet switch with 48 SFP+ ports and up to 6 QSFP+ port in a 1U form factor. Each 40G QSFP+ port can be independently configured as 40GbE or 4 x 10GbE ports. Built for Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) datacenter deployment, high performance computing clusters, and Financial applications, the very high port density and high performance as well as ultra-low latency characteristic makes QuantaMesh T3048-LY8 ideal for demanding workloads and provides the best TCO.

Accompanied by the application of cloud computing, big data and parallel calculation, datacenter network devices continue to grow fast and make network automation a critical factor. Supporting auto installation and integration with orchestration tools like Chef and Puppet, QuantaMesh T3048-LY8 helps for easy deployment of mass datacenter IaaS build-up.

Network virtualization is becoming an important topic for datacenters. QuantaMesh T3048-LY8 provides hardware-based VXLAN feature to support virtual machine mobility. Not limited by 4K VLANs, VXLAN helps for the network scaling out across L3 subnets and can support up to 16.7M possible virtual networks.

Software Defined Network has emerged as a new approach to support open, vendor-agnostic, and programmable networks. QuantaMesh T3048-LY8 provides OpenFlow and OpEN API with Python script support as SDN solution to fulfill the modern datacenter trend.

High Availability
The QuantaMesh T3048-LY8 is designed for high availability from both hardware and software perspectives. The key features include:

1+1 hot-swappable power supplies
2+1 hot-swappable fans
Out-of-band management supported
Multi-chassis LAG for preventing the risks of single point failure
Up to 32 paths ECMP routing for load balancing and redundancy
