Telecommunication networks are increasingly stretched to deliver greater and greater capacity as enterprises and subscribers begin using 5G-enabled devices. In anticipation of 5G networks, optical engineers have developed innovative ways to increase the capacity of existing physical infrastructure.
IP Infusion’s vendor-agnostic OcNOS software addresses this challenge with its latest Optical Transport Network (OTN) Solution update.
Today’s hyperscale data center, service provider, and carrier networks are built on open switch hardware and open software on servers running virtual network functions.
As demands for higher throughput and efficiency drive switch development, the standard fixed-function switch ASIC has started to make way for more flexible programmable switch silicon that allows greater control of the data plane.
The Edgecore AGR120 is a deep-packet buffer router optimized for carrier access and aggregation and data center applications. Based on Broadcom's StrataDNX Qumran MX ASIC, the device supports line-rate 800Gbps Layer 2 and Layer 3 functions and is equipped with a powerful Intel Xeon CPU. The AGR120 supports IEEE 802.1AE MACSEC functionality delivering secure encrypted communications on the 10G downlink ports.
- 6x 100G QSFP28 or 6x 40G QSFP ports at front.
- Support for IEEE 802.1AE MACsec encryption.
- Rack mountable in standard 19" racks.
- Hot-swappable, load sharing, redundant AC or 48 VDC PSUs.
- Hot swappable 5+1 redundant fan modules.
- Pre-loaded with Open Network Install Environment (ONIE)
- Compatible with Open Network Linux (ONL)
- Compatible with IP Infusion OcNOS
DZS Velocity Broadband Connectivity solutions accelerate and simplify the network wide deployment of future-proof next generation multi-gigabit services over fiber, so service providers can deliver the advanced services expected by their customers with Maximum Flexibility, Architectural Headroom, and Operational Simplicity.
