Data center networks face changes with hardware and meetingthe requirements of the software it hosts.  Quanta Cloud Technologyprovides a series of Bare Metal Switches, the QCT BMS product line, thataddresses these changes in the data center market.  The QCT BMS productlines support speeds up to 100G speeds on its Ethernet Switches.  To meetthe requirements of high performance, high availability, fast scale out, lowlatency performance, and continuous serviceability in data center applications,the QCT BMS product line is the best choice.

      BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) embedded on the serveras the core of the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI)architecture can now be implemented in the Ethernet switch. In addition toproviding health monitoring of the temperature, power status, and cooling fans;BMC also aids in the deployment and management of software and hardwareperipherals.

      QCT BMS T4048-IX3 supports 48 SFP28 and 6 QSFP28(10/25/40/50/100GbE speed) ports and is equipped with BMC in a compact rackunit size.  By levering merchant silicon chip, T4048-IX3 is fullycompliant with IEEE 802.3by and is a high performance high density Ethernetswitch with advanced features such as smart table, dynamic load balancing, andVxLAN/RIOT support. T4048-IX3 also improves the performance for larger packetbuffers adn reduced latency. With ONIE (Open Network Installation Environment)pre-loaded T4048-IX3 can be used for multiple network operating system whichsupports ONIE installer to achieve agile installation and fast response for thechanging demand.
