The Aruba 8400x switch series provides a top-end performance of up to 19.2 terabits per second of switching capacity. The switch is an 8 Rack Unit (RU) chassis, that can support a a maximum of 256 10GbE (SFP/SFP+) ports, or 64 40GbE (QSFP+) ports, or 48 ports of 40/100GbE (QSFP28).
Complementing the 8400X switch is the new ArubaOS-CX network operating system that makes use of the open-source Open vSwitch Database (OVSDB) protocol for enabling Software Defined Networking (SDN). As has been the case with Aruba's prior network operating systems, the ArubaOS-CX system is based on Linux.
