The D-Link 5000 Series Data Centre Switches are a series of high-performance switches that feature high port density, routing, and ultra-low latency, designed to be deployed as Top-of-Rack (ToR) or leaf-spine switches in data center applications. Combined with ONIE support and increased cost-effciency, the 5000 Series form a ﬂexible long-term solution for managing and expanding data centre infrastructures in a Software-defined Networking (SDN) environment.
The 5000 Series switches support open networking, providing IT professionals with innovative third-party operating systems and software options. As bare metal switches, the 5000 Series switches ship pre-loaded with Open Network Install Environment (ONIE). ONIE is an open source install environment that allows administrators to install the network operating system(s) of choice as part of the data centre provisioning process. In addition, the 5000 Series also oﬀers network administrators the option to purchase a licence to activate the D-Link OS on the switches.
The 5000 Series switches are available in a variety of high-capacity interface combinations, including SFP+, QSFP+, SFP28 and QSFP28 ports to accommodate the scale and requirements of data centres. Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) support means the switches can be easily integrated in existing network ecosystems using a variety of supported third-party Network Operating Systems (NOSs) for optimal compatibility.
The 5000 Series switches feature a modular fan and power supply design for a high availability architecture. The hot-swappable design means that fans and power supplies can be replaced without aﬀecting switch operation. Load sharing enables both power supplies to evenly distribute load to increase reliability and lifetime. Meanwhile, 1+1 redundancy minimizes downtime in case of a single power supply failure.
The 5000 Series switches feature a complete L2 and L3 feature set to meet the demands of data centre applications. Layer 2 features include L2 switching, L2 multicast, advanced Quality of Service (QoS), and robust security features. Meanwhile, the 5000 Series oﬀers advanced L3 routing for enterprise integration, including OSPF, BGP, Graceful Restart, Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD), and L3 multicast.
Data Centre Bridging (DCB) is an essential set of enhancements to Ethernet for networking in data center environments. The D-Link OS for the 5000 Series switches supports several core components of Data Centre Bridging (DCB) such as IEEE 802.1Qbb, IEEE 802.1Qaz, IEEE 802.1Qau, VXLAN and more.
