Advanced Open Networking Switch offering 40Gbps/100Gbps Ethernet Performance in a Compact 1U Enclosure

The SSE-C3632S Layer 2/3 Ethernet Switch is the latest entry from Supermicro in the Open Networking arena. Open Networking provides customers with the ability to maximize the efficient and flexible use of valuable data center resources while providing an ideal platform for managing and maintaining those resources in a manner in tune with the needs of the organization.

Offering thirty-two QSFP28 Ethernet ports, SSE-C3632S switch enables robust layer-3 IP fabric for flexible layer-2 overlay in Ethernet fabric architecture. For modern scale-out, leaf-and-spine data center network deployments, SSE-C3632S is positioned as the high-speed spine layer to provide scalable bi-sectional fabric bandwidth for leaf layer such as SSE-X3648S switch. Depending on deployment connectivity, physical Ethernet QSFP28 ports in SSE-C3632S can be configured for either 40Gbps or 100Gbps port, thus allow flexible physical connectivity option between spine layer and leaf layer in the data center Ethernet fabric. Compact 1U form factor gives users the ability to optimize deployment in standalone or top-of-rack environments. A rail kit facilitates rack-mounting installations. Reverse-airflow model, the SSE-C3632SR, is available for use in large data centers with alternating hot and cold equipment aisles. These switches are ideal for deployment in Data Center, Cloud and Enterprise environments with the capability of handling access for the most demanding applications.

Pre-loaded with the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE), the SSE-C3632S/R is ready for your networking operating system of choice. Supermicro recommends the use of Cumulus Linux on the SSE-C3632S. Cumulus Linux is an OS for open networking incorporating a true Linux distribution with extensive networking features plus hardware acceleration of routing and switching functions. By using many of the same tools employed for servers, Cumulus Linux enables affordable scalability with clear CapEx savings and even greater OpEx savings; it unleashes rapid innovation via custom, open source or commercial Linux tools and applications. Contact Cumulus Networks for more details and ordering information.
