Edgecore Networks Contributes Designs to OCP for Scalable 25G and 100G Data Center Networks and Open Wi-Fi Access Networks

SANTA CLARA--()--OCP Summit – Edgecore Networks, the leader in open networking, today announced design contributions to the Open Compute Project (OCP) of a 25 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) top-of-rack switch and a high-density 100 GbE spine switch that will lower the cost of high capacity data center networks. Edgecore also announced the contribution of two 802.1ac Wi-Fi access point designs that will offer additional platform choices for the growing community of software partners and managed service providers delivering open access networks.

In addition to the new design contributions, Edgecore will exhibit at the OCP Summit new open hardware platforms that further extend open networking into telecom applications, including a modular packet optical switch integrating Ethernet networking up to 100GbE with Analog Coherent Optics (ACO) and Digital Coherent Optics (DCO) technology from multiple partners, and a disaggregated virtual OLT for PON deployment up to 10G designed in conformance with the AT&T Open XGS-PON 1RU OLT specification contributed to the OCP Telco Working Group.

“As the contributor of the most networking designs in the industry to OCP, Edgecore has seen open hardware designs lower CAPEX and OPEX for our customers, provide open platforms that encourage innovation from our software partners, and lead to collaboration within the open community that has resulted in a broader set of solutions for data center, telecom and enterprise customers,” said George Tchaparian, CEO, Edgecore Networks. “With our new set of design contributions and open network products, Edgecore is enabling more rapid adoption of high-capacity 25G/100G networks in the data center, lower-cost open network architectures for telecom central offices, integrated packet optical solutions to reduce costs for data center interconnect and service provider networks, and cloud-provisioned open access networks by managed service providers.”
