Edgecore Networks introduces the Wedge100-32X – 100G Data Center Switch based on Facebook’s Wedge100 design, more open and versatile than ever

Edgecore Networks, a leading provider of traditional and open network solutions for enterprises, data centers and telecommunication service providers, today announces the Edgecore Wedge100-32X, the commercial product based on Facebook’s Wedge100 design. Facebook designed the Wedge100 as a 32 x 100 GbE Top-of-Rack switch optimized for web-scale data centers, and submitted the design to the Open Compute Project. Edgecore’s parent company, Accton Technology, performed the design validation for Facebook and manufactures the Wedge100 for Facebook’s deployment. Edgecore now offers the Wedge100 as a fully supported commercial product to enable network operators to increase capacity with 25G and 100G networking.
The Wedge 100 switch provides 32 QSFP28 ports that can each run at 100 GbE/40 GbE, or as 4 x 25 GbE/ 4 x 10 GbE/2 x 50 GbE through breakout cables. The Wedge 100 design is based on the Broadcom BCM56960 Tomahawk 3.2 Tbps switch silicon. The Wedge CPU subsystem is the COM-E CPU module, based on the Intel Atom E3800 x86 processor. The use of this standard CPU system, coupled with the BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) on the Wedge main board, enables the Wedge 100 to be provisioned and managed using similar tools used by data center operators for their server and application environments. Meanwhile, compatible softwares on Wedge 100 platform include Open Network Linux and SnapRoute
The Wedge100-32X switch is now available from Edgecore Networks and channel partners worldwide. For more detail product information about Wedge100-32X, please visit https://goo.gl/1fe1Iw
