Re: Cisco ToR/Leaf L3 network switch

Hello Kostantinos,

a possible candidate is the following Catalyst 9500 series

C9500-24Y4C: Cisco Catalyst 9500 Series high-performance switch with 24x 1/10/25G Gigabit Ethernet + 4x 40/100G Uplink

>> The Cisco Catalyst 9500 Series Switches support dual 1+1 redundant power supplies. The switches ship with one power supply by default. The second power supply can be purchased at the time the switch is ordered or at a later time. If only one power supply is installed, it should always be in power supply bay #1. 

 

According to tables 7 and 8 you should need two C9K-PWR-650WAC-R power supplies for the switch.

You need to verify the licenses required to run L3 routing features.

 

Edit:

about licensing if you need BGP or EIGRP or VXVLAN you need the Network Advantage license

Hope to help

You might also look into the Nexus series using FEXes as ToR.

If this is for data center use, look at the Cisco Nexus 9200 and 9300 series. They come with 40 and 100Gig ports for uplinks.
