The MTBF-10032X/10065X P4 programmable Ethernet switch based on Intel Tofino service solution is a Top-of-Rack (TOR) or spine switch for high-performance data centers. In a 1RU (32X)/2RU (65X) form factor, the switch provides line-rate L2 and L3 switching across the 32/65 x QSFP28 ports, supporting up to 32/65 x 25/40/50/100 GbE connections. The MTBF-10032X/10065X can be deployed as a TOR switch supporting 25/50 GbE to servers with 40/50/100 GbE uplinks, or as a spine switch supporting 40/50/100 GbE spine interconnects. This open network switch is loaded with the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE), which supports the installation of compatible Network Operating System soſtware.
