With this commercial demonstration, NEC is showing how its SDN ProgrammableFlow Controller can work with Pica8's PICOS to enable open networking across a variety of switch hardware vendors to deliver a multitenant 100G switch fabric
with high scalability and zero-touch provisioning.
POET implements a collection of standard interfaces to create a bridge between processors and switch fabric
and will initially support both Serial RapidIO (sRIO) and 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
"Our highly productive, three-year relationship with Fujitsu has enabled us to develop the BladeXchange, an excellent 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch fabric
solution for blade servers," stated Raju Vegesna, president, and CEO of ServerEngines.
The servers will be interconnected by the emerging ASI switch fabric
with peer-to-peer message passing and high performance RDMA capabilities.
Larger buffers will result from either an under-speed device (switch fabric
is less than aggregate of the link speeds) or one with a high latency.
EZchip's network processors coupled with Dune's traffic manager and switch fabric
provide all the key silicon capabilities required to build switch/router systems with unmatched processing and quality-of-service (QoS).
MaXXan's flagship MXV320 intelligent application switch based on the SANe architecture is built around a programmable switch fabric
that enables the delivery of core storage services at the port level and a standards-based I/O engine optimized to run software applications.
Now board and chassis vendors have a COTS (Commercial Off-the-Shelf) platform based on a high performance switch fabric
that enables scalable, QoS-enabled, multi-service embedded solutions.
The switch adapter complements IBM's Prizma switch fabric
device, relieving the switch engine of the burden of identifying and prioritizing packet streams, and matching them against policy profiles.
Each 4RU rack-mountable Fusion Catalyst 8000 CPU Chassis can support up to four Fusion Catalyst 8000 Switch Fabric
Chassis for a total of 80 PCI Express 2.0 4-lane slots and can support up to 120 outputs at 2560x1600 pixels at 32 bits.
The new and enhanced products fulfill earlier Cisco pledges to extend its data centre switch fabric
technology throughout the IT infrastructure.
The solution supports up to 2,304 E1 ports, 2,688 T1 ports, 128 E3 ports, 96 T3 ports, 32 STM-1/OC-3 ports or 2,560 data ports, expanding the overall switch fabric
capacity by a factor of four compared to the DNX-88 system.
