400G Spine solutions for hyperscale cloud and I/O intensive environments

The 7060X5 Series are high density and power efficient fixed configuration data center switches for 400GbE and 200GbE optimized for Hyperscale Cloud, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning environments employing high network radix. With QSFP-DD interfaces they provide a compelling solution for the largest hyperscale cloud and IO intensive environments, with consistent low latency combined with proven visibility, traffic instrumentation and automation features. The 7060X5 Series deliver wirespeed layer 2 and layer 3 with flexible resources, robust traffic management and load balancing features.

With 64 400G ports in 2RU the 7060DX5-64S supports a flexible choice of port speeds from 128 x 200G to 64 x 400G, with each port supporting a wide choice of optics and cables.
