High Port Count

18 QSFP ports. 1RU top-of-rack Ethernet switch provides "40 GbE ready" server/storage connections at minimal cost

Ultra-low Latency

150ns port-to-port with extremely low jitter making it ideal for latency sensitive applications

High Throughput

1.5 Tb/s non-blocking throughput and a forwarding capacity exceeding 1 Bpps. Ideal for bandwidth hungry, data-intensive applications in High Performance Data Centers

Scalability to Thousands of Ports

Unique top-of-rack switch fabric device with 40 GbE support, arbitrarily wide fabric link aggregation and MAC addressing up to 52 million entries. Used in conjunction with the GS4008, a 720-port fully connected network with 282ns latency can be constructed with a single tier of GS0018 fabric switches. Larger networks can be constructed by adding additional stages


Service differentiation, lossless transmission, highly efficient multicast and unicast increases overall application efficiency

Minimized TCO

Typical power consumption under 6.5W per port (40 GbE) substantially reduces operating costs. Reliability and serviceability are ensured with hot-swappable, redundant PSUs and fans


QSFP fiber or copper cables, open-sourced from third-party vendors or directly from Gnodal. Support of QSFP to 4-port SFP+ converter cable enables further flexibility
