Merchant Silicon / MIPS / ADARA Axis 1172-12
The ADARA Axis 1172-12 switch is a modular 10GbE/40GbE switching system based on Broadcom StrataXGS Trident II switch SOC. The switch is compliant with version 1.0 of the Open Compute Project (OCP) Open Network Switch Specification. It is designed to be compatible with the 19” Enterprise Rack specification and the 21” OCP Open Rack specification.The switch is optimized to provide high capacity switching for enterprise and service provider applications. ADARA software running on this switch provides software solutions including OpenFlow controller, L2-L3 switching, and other SDN applications.
Modular pluggable CPU options make this platform highly versatile.The ADARA Axis1172-12 switch is optimized for cost and power and meets the requirements for Leaf and Spine Switches for use by large data center, cloud computing and telecom service provider networks. The small 1U form factor maximizes the space in the rack for compute and storage. The switch can be configured with up to 72 ports of 10GbE or 48 ports of 10GbE and up to 12 ports of 40GbE. The port modularity allows for flexibility in network design to address a variety of applications and implementations. The modular control CPU is capable of supporting control plane processor architectures including X86, MIPS, PPC and ARM. The system can support an optional data-plane offload processor, capable of processing up to 40Gbps.
