HSINCHU, Taiwan–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Edgecore Networks, the leader in open networking solutions, today announced a family of next-generation, high-performance 100G open aggregation routers – the AGR400 Series, to enable enterprises and service providers to deploy solutions future-proof and state-of-the-art for Internet peering, 5G Network, OpenBNG and aggregation applications. The Edgecore AGR400 series based on the latest Broadcom StrataDNX™ Qumran2C silicon with 2.4 Tbps switching capacity and deep buffer design, providing open networking platforms that meet a variety of use cases, including including core, metro and aggregation.
The new backbone router – AGR400, consists of 4 x 25G SFP28, 18 x 100G QSFP28, 4 x 100G QSFP-DD and 4 x 400G QSFP-DD network interfaces in a compact 2RU design. The leaf router – AGR420, consists of 64 network interfaces 10G/25G SFP28, 8 x 100G QSFP28 and 2 x 100G QSFP-DD. Both of these routers use Intel’s rugged 8-core server-grade processor, 32GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD with the latest broadband AST2800 BMC chipset. This family of aggregation routers is capable of providing Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) interface, network slicing and eCPRI encapsulation, which is ideal as a PE router or an Ethernet aggregation router. Additionally, the AGR400 series supports high-power optical transceivers, extending service line capabilities.
AGR400 Series designed for desktop deployments, with 5 counter-rotating front-to-back fans, provides larger, more powerful, industry-leading cooling, and 1+1 load-sharing modular redundant power supplies offering high availability and hassle-free maintenance.
Edgecore’s aggregation router product portfolio is field-proven, versatile, and capable, as Edgecore works closely with software partners, such as Casa Systems, IP Infusion, and RtBrick. Users have a dynamic set of NOS options available across Edgecore platforms. Edgecore offers a comprehensive routing portfolio with high performance, capacity, and scalability for innovative new services supporting mobile, provider edge, and 5G broadband network aggregations.
Nanda Ravindran, Vice President of Product Management, Edgecore said, “As a leader in open networking solutions, Edgecore offers core, metro and aggregation routers based on the Broadcom StrataDNX family of chipsets with deep buffer designs, capable of handling the most demanding uses. cases, and offering the quality, reliability and functionality expected by operators. The AGR400 series with carrier-grade reliability and multi-role capabilities, supports a number of crucial features including Ethernet OAM, MPLS and segment routing, which is the ideal solution for carrier network, campus and cloud.
“Broadband demand is a constant in networks, in both urban and rural markets,” said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion. “The combination of IP Infusion’s and Edgecore’s line of OcNOS aggregation routers ensures a state-of-the-art networking solution for today, but also provides a wide selection of open network options to meet any network requirements. broadband aggregation in the future.
“The new AGR400 Series is a powerful new family of open switches, which will expand telecom operators’ choice of disaggregated hardware,” said Hannes Gredler, CTO and Founder of RtBrick Inc. “During integration and testing from our routing software, we’ve seen the AGR400 Series deliver a step change in performance over previous generations of switches, delivering services at a scale that will satisfy even the world’s largest networks.
