High-Performance Open Networking 100GbE Aggregation Switch

Supermicro SSE-C4632 is the new generation 32 port 100Gbps switch designed to provide high performance and non-blocking with 6.4Tbps Switching capacity, best suitable for data center leaf and spine deployments. The SSE-C4632 is an extremely compact 1RU form factor with proven layer 2 and layer 3 features.

The Enterprise SONiC distribution offers benefits such as high performance and simplicity based on industry leading merchant silicon and standards based IP CLOS architecture. It also provides agility based on a flexible management framework with programmatic APIs and an extensible, container-based architecture.

SSE-C4632 can operate at variety of speeds such as 32x100Gbps QSFP28 or 32x40G QSFP+ or by using the breakout cables 64x50G QSFP56 or 128x25Gbps SFP28 or 10G SFP+. Switch comes with dual and redundant power supplies and FANs that are FRU capable. The included rail kit facilitates rack-mounting installations.

Pre-loaded with the Broadcom Enterprise Distribution SONiC OS, the SSE-C4632 is ready with extensive networking features plus hardware acceleration of routing and switching functions. And the software support is included in the switch standard warranty at no additional cost.
