Hsinchu, Taiwan (Business Wire) – Edgecore Networks, the leader in open networking solutions, today announces a new generation high-performance 100G open aggregation router family – AGR400 series, to enable enterprises and service providers to deploy future-proof and cutting-edge solutions for Internet peering, 5G NET, OpenBNG and aggregation applications. The Edgecore AGR400 series based on the latest Broadcom StrataDNX™ Qumran2C silicon with 2.4 Tbps switching capability and deep buffer design, providing open networking platforms that serve a variety of use cases, 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 2RU compact design. The leaf router – AGR420, consists of 64 x 10G/25G SFP28, 8 x 100G QSFP28 and 2 x 100G QSFP-DD network interfaces. The two routers use a powerful 8-core server-grade Intel CPU, 32G RAM and 128G SSD with the latest AST2800 BMC chipset on board. The aggregation router family 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. In addition, the AGR400 series supports high-powered optical transceivers, extending the service range capabilities.
The AGR400 series designed for office deployments, with front-to-back 5 counter rotating fans, provide larger and stronger cooling best in the industry, and 1+1 load-sharing modular redundant PSUs that provide high availability and hassle-free maintenance.
Edgecore’s aggregation router product portfolio is field-proven, multirole-capable, and high-performing because Edgecore works closely with software partners, such as Casa Systems, IP Infusion, and RtBrick. Users have a vibrant set of NOS options available on Edgecore platforms. Edgecore offers a complete routing portfolio with high-performance, high-capacity and high-scalability for new innovative services to support 5G mobile, provider edge and broadband network aggregations.
Nanda Ravindran, Vice President of Product Management at Edgecore said: “As a leader in open network 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 use cases, and delivering the quality, reliability and features expected by operators. With carrier-grade reliability and multirole capabilities, AGR400 series supports a number of critical features, including Ethernet OAM, MPLS and segment routing, making it an ideal solution For carrier, campus and cloud network environments.
“Broadband demand is constant in networking, both urban and rural markets,” said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion. “The combination of IP Infusion’s OcNOS and Edgecore’s range of aggregation routers ensures a best-of-breed networking solution for today, but also provides an expansive choice of open networking options to meet any broadband aggregation requirements in the future. ”
“The new AGR400 series is a powerful new range of open switches that will expand telcos’ choice of disaggregated hardware,” said Hannes Gredler, CTO and founder at RtBrick Inc. “During the integration and testing of our routing software, we have seen that the AGR400 series provide a step-change in performance from previous generations of switches, delivering services at a scale that will satisfy even the world’s largest networks.
