While 10GbE is a solid base for high-speed network transmission, the ultra-high-speed 25GbE provides comparative cost advantages and compatibility in SMB server rooms to satisfy data computing applications.
25GbE fulfills bandwidth requirements in high-speed storage, virtualization, and AI applications.
25GbE SFP28 is backward compatible with 10GbE SFP+/1GbE SFP and can be connected to 50GbE/100GbE via Breakout DAC, easily integrating existing network infrastructure.
25GbE is 2.5 times faster than 10GbE while the cost is less than 2 times higher, suitable for upgrading backbone network.
The QSW-M5216-1T has sixteen 25GbE SFP28 fiber ports and offers backbone switching capacity of 820Gbps, guaranteeing the full potential of each port. The QSW-M5216-1T can serve as the core switch uplinking to 25G/100G Servers and NAS in server rooms or connecting to 25G/10G edge fiber switches.
Along with sixteen 25GbE SFP28 fiber ports, the QSW-M5216-1T is has one 10GBASE-T port for enabling hybrid high-speed networks. Its 25GbE SFP28 interfaces are backward compatible with 10GbE SFP+/1GbE SFP; and 10GbE RJ45 is compatible with NBASE-T technologies to support five speeds (10G / 5G / 2.5G / 1G / 100M).
Use SFP28 DAC (Direct Attach Copper) or transceivers to connect to NAS with fiber interfaces, network cards and switches.
Use existing 6a cables to connect to 10GbE NAS or 10GbE switches.
