400/800G Leaf and 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 800G, 400GbE, 200GbE and 100GbE; optimized for Hyperscale Cloud, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning environments employing high network radix. 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.

The 7060X5 series are multi-role platforms. As the data center leaf, they provide dense 50G, 100G, 200G and 400G connectivity, addressing today’s high end storage and HPC requirements as well as future server connectivity.

Implemented at the spine the 7060X5 provides up to 32 ports of 800G in a single rack unit enabling efficient high radix clusters that maximize the 25.6T bandwidth performance of compute and storage by eliminating bottlenecks between leaf and spine tiers. The 7060X5 series also supports up to 64 x 400G or 256 x 100G using breakouts, doubling current densities with new, cost effective, 800G optics.
