The ExtremeSwitching™ X870 Series devices are high-density 100Gb switches designed for high- performance enterprise and cloud environments. Flexibly deployed in either spine/leaf or high-density top of rack architectures, these switches with 32 QSFP28 ports support a range of interface speeds, including 10Gb, 25Gb, 40Gb, 50Gb, and 100Gb all in a compact 1RU form. Low-latency cut-through switching and an advanced feature set make these network switches ideal for high-performance data center applications.
