D-Link 54 Port 10GbE/40GbE Open Network Switch

D-Link's DXS-5000-54S 10 GbE Open Network Switch is a compact, highperformance switch that features full line-rate 10-Gigabit Ethernet switching and low latency at Layer 2 or Layer 3. With its open architecture and high port density, this switch is ideal in a data center for Top-of-Rack (ToR) applications or as part of a 10GbE/40GbE leaf-spine architecture. In addition, the scalability, capacity and advanced capabilities of the DXS-5000-54S are equally compelling for deployment as a Campus or Enterprise core switch.

The DXS-5000-54S is 1U high and includes forty-eight (48) SFP+ ports supporting 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GBASE-SR, 10GBASE-LR, or DAC/Direct Attach Copper.) These ports are also backwards compatible with 1GbE SFPs. In addition, there are six (6) QSFP+ ports supporting 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40GBASE-SR, or 40GBASE-LR). Using optional DAC breakout cables, the switch supports up to 72 x 10GbE ports.

Open Networking

The DXS-5000-54S switch supports open networking, providing IT professionals with innovative third party operating systems and software options. This lowers costs by separating software from hardware and increases network agility and flexibility. With support for standards-based tools and standards-based applications, open networking simplifies scalability and future-proofs the network.


As a bare metal switch, the DXS-5000-54S ships preloaded with Open Network Install Environment (ONIE). ONIE is an open source install environment that acts as an enhanced boot loader. This small Linux operating system allows IT Professionals to install the network operating system of choice as part of data center provisioning process, in the same manner that their servers are provisioned.

Netvisor Operating System

For simple plug-and-play deployments, the DXS-5000-54S is also available pre-configured with the Pluribus Netvisor OS, the industry's most programmable, open source-based network operating system. The Pluribus Netvisor software is a virtualized network operating system that provides a best-in-class Layer 2 and Layer 3 networking foundation, advanced network services, VXLAN, distributed Adaptive Cloud Fabric™ intelligence and embedded network performance monitoring telemetry.

The Pluribus Netvisor software virtualizes the switch hardware, decoupling network resources from the underlying hardware to create multiple network containers on a single device. Each container can be dynamically allocated, and a single switch can instantiate multiple network containers. Each container has its own virtualized router and can support granular east/west and north/south network segmentation, strict multi-tenant services, security and policies, and the integration of virtualized network services and functions.

D-Link offers the DXS-5000-54S pre-configured with the Pluribus Netvisor OS licensed for either:

Netvisor Enterprise - includes Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching and routing functionality with all standard networking protocols and high availability features.
Netvisor Fabric - adds VXLAN, Telemetry, Adaptive Cloud Fabric, Data Center Interconnect and security and segmentation capabilities.

High Availability and Flexibility

The DXS-5000-54S switch features modular fans and power supplies for a high availability architecture. The hot-swappable design means that fans and power supplies can be replaced without affecting switch operation. Each switch ships with a full complement of two power supplies and four fan modules. Additional power supplies and fans may be purchased separately.
