|Edgecore Networks delivers series of data center network solution to meet fast- growing, high-performance data center market requirement. Two types of 1G/10G/40 switches are offered - bare metal hardware with open network Installer Environment (ONIE) and whitebox switches with integrated fully Layer 2 and Layer 3 data center switching.
For new data center build outs or additional capacity in existing data centers with TOR and/or spine network projects and for those customers preferring traditional networking management model (CLI, SNMP), Edgecore delivers white box switches which integrates full function Layer 2 and Layer 3 Data Center Switching Software, that is optimized for the scale and performance requirements of cloud data centers, with high availability 1Gbe, 10GbE and 40GbE switch hardware, especially for Edgecore white-box switches meet data center requirements for Top-of-Rack deployment interconnecting to standards-based end-of-row or aggregation networks. Product available as AS4600/AS5600 DCSS versions.
For new data center build outs with TOR and/or spine networks project and for those customers who have in-house Linux expertise and open source software, Edgecore Networks delivers bare metal switches or hardware switches including a universal switchOS installer that allows for the automated loading of compatible switchOS software from third party software suppliers. The combination of bare-metal switches and independent switchOS software allows customers to deploy best-in-class hardware and software independently. Edgecore offers high performance bare-metal data center switches for Top-of-Rack and Spine Network deployment. Product available asAS4600/AS5600/AS6700 ONIE versions.
