Cavium announced partnerships with network solution providers and Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) to bring hardware switch platforms based on the XPliant family of Ethernet switches.
ODMs next generation switch platforms in various form factors target Top-of-Rack (ToR) and leaf/spine deployment including 32-port 40/100GE QSFP28/QSFP+ system and 48-port 10/25GE SFP+ + 6-port 40/100GE QSFP+ system.
Cavium’s XPliant CNX880xx family of Ethernet switches targets embedded applications in transport, wireless infrastructure, compute and networking appliances and provides an unparalleled flexibility in protocol processing without compromising throughput.
XPliant Ethernet switches are suitable for the datacenter, enterprise and service provider markets.
The company said new switches provide bandwidths of up to 3.2 Terabits per second in monolithic silicon and support 1G, 10G, 25G, 40G, 50G and 100G interfaces.
Edge-Core Networks deliver bare metal switches with the Open Network Install (ONIE), a standard, universal switchOS installer that allows for the automated loading of compatible switchOS software from third party software suppliers.
Additionally, Edge-Core offers high performance bare-metal data center switches for Top-of-Rack and Spine Network deployment.
Also, Inventec DCS Switch series offers wire speed layer 2/3/4 performance for 10G, 40G and 100G interfaces.
LiteON provides a full range of switch products for large enterprises, big campuses and data centers and delivers more advanced technology in networking to meet future market demands.
“Cavium’s XPliant is the latest addition to our bare metal switch portfolio,” said Daphne Chen, director of Network Infrastructure Design Center at Inventec Corporation.
In April, Cavium demonstrated SDN, NFV and security solutions for next generation enterprise, Cloud and telecom data centers at the INTEROP 2015 in Las Vegas.
