APS Networks®



Product Description

The APS Networks® APS2156DG switch is a TOR switch for enterprise networks or security solutions using the P4 programming language. The unit enables enterprise L2/L3 switching across the 48x SFP28 ports and the 8x QSFP28 at line rate and supports 10/25/40/50 and 100Gb/s data rates. The APS2156D-G is designed for multigig data rates which enable 10/100/1000Mb/s port speeds on the SFP28 ports. Combined with internal CPU Ethernet connectivity, a range of CPU processors, optional PTP and the ability to implement MacSec on the SFP28 ports the APS2156D-G is ideal for the development of P4 enabled solutions while providing secure connectivity to servers and uplink networks.
