Thank you for posting in Wired communities. If you are referring to the the xL710 Ethernet controller, this
is used for network card or ethernet controller to be integrated on boards as an onboard NIC, not intended to be used in a switch.
You might want to check on the ethernet switch silicon listed below, however the products below are not support here in this forum.
Hope the above information help.
