Physical dimensions/weight

Built for core, carrier, superhub, and studio applications, the Media Links MDX32C is a high performance IP Media Switch designed to work in concert with Media Links’ MDX family of edge and aggregation switches. The MDX32C delivers 32 QSFP28 high speed 100GbE Ethernet ports and provides line rate Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching with a total switching capacity of 6.4 Tbps. The switch supports up to 4K VLAN IDs and up to 136K MAC addresses and uses a Packet Buffer size of 16MB in a shared buffer pool. OpenFlow 1.3 switching support is standard.

The MDX32C is optimized to handle both compressed and uncompressed video/audio streams as well as bidirectional TCP-over-IP data traffic and is designed with a non-blocking architecture that assures no packet loss at full bandwidth rates in various configurations. It supports unicast and multicast traffic with 9KB Jumbo frames and features an advanced set of Quality of Service (QoS) features including per port priority queuing, traffic scheduling, and traffic classification.

The unit features a compact 1RU form factor and includes NEBS certification. Power for the switch is supplied by two redundant, load-sharing, hot swappable AC or -48VDC power supplies and cooling is provided by 5 + 1 hot-swappable redundant fans. Several device management options are available, including SNMP, web management, and CLI.
