The UfiSpace S9705-48D is a 48 x 400GE disaggregated fabric switch that enables UfiSpace's S9700-53DX and S9700-23D core routers to be deployed as a distributed disaggregated chassis within the core and edge networks.
The S9705-48D disaggregated fabric switch uses the Broadcom Ramon chipset, which utilizes a cell based switching interface that supports 8 billion cells forwarding per second. This approach maximizes switching performance by eliminating packet overhead and optimizes resource allocation to distribute loading between fabric interfaces.
When coupled with UfiSpace's core routers, the S9705-48D is the fabric element building block that interlocks the S9700-53DX and S9700-23DX core routers within the distributed disaggregated chassis (DDC). The DDC allows telecoms and service providers to implement a pay-as-you-grow model when scaling core network capacities from 4Tbs up to 192Tbs.
What is a Distributed Disaggregated Chassis (DDC) routing system? The UfiSpace DDC routing system opens up the traditional chassis routing system by âDistributingâ the line and fabric card components into easy to manage, standalone âDisaggregatedâ white boxes, each equipped with their own hot swappable fans and power supplies for easy maintenance and servicing. These line and fabric cards are connected together using 400GE cables to for a single "Chassis," capable of horizontal scaling from 4Tbs to 192Tbs.
No longer will forklifts be needed for installing the chassis because the DDC is so compact; just 2RU in height and can fit onto a standard 19â data center rack. UfiSpaceâs DDC is designed for a routing system that is easier to install, manage, and maintain, while meeting all the technical requirements of a carrier-grade core and edge routing system.
