Enterprises designing a hyperscale cloud datacenter architecture, with customized network services running on disaggregated platforms, cannot rely on traditional equipment suppliers to test network devices to support their specific requirements. A high-performance, scalable datacenter architecture requires seamless network integration with automation and orchestration systems, as well as the ability to easily adapt specific network services to meet changing needs and technologies.
“Developing customized high-performance networking, based on disaggregated technology like FlexSwitch and OCP hardware, creates enormous value. It also involves complex protocols, like BGP and ECMP, that need to interoperate at scale, and with existing and future switches and routers, creating major challenges,” stated
The demonstrations, available to attendees in booth C21, will reveal the performance of SnapRoute’s FlexSwitch network operating system, running on the Wedge 100 Switch. Also included is Ixia‘s comprehensive network infrastructure performance testing solution, IxNetwork®, running on Ixia’s innovative Novus™ High-Density 100GbE Load Module. Demonstrations will cover:
- Access and visibility with telemetry streaming and analytics
- On-the-fly micro-services updates without disrupting the network
- High scale BGP performance and convergence over ECMP (Equal-Cost Multi-Path)
“Network operators are constantly seeking ways to create higher value and greater differentiation from their infrastructure. Ixia’s world-class test suite with SnapRoute’s modern open network operating system supporting OCP hardware enables the operators’ quest for reliability, faster feature deployment and customization. SnapRoute is excited to partner with
