N8500-48B6C(48*25GbE+6*100GbE) 25GbE Open Networking Switch Preloaded ONIE

This switch got a favorable comment from Joseph Bernard at Clemson on the netgurus mail list.

Sold by fs.com. Think fiber supply. It appears that fs.com is a distributor and not and OEM or ODM. So this switch is made by someone else. There is a data sheet but if you zoom in on the center of the top of the switch photo it says Redstone D2060. So, when it was time to produce the data sheet in October 2017 no suitable picture was available. An older switch was tapped to stand in for the beauty shot. There is also a catalog page which gives the web price. n.b. Check the vendor's web page and do not rely on this snapshot for current price. This appears to be an Agema (Delta) AG5648v1.
