Coming Soon: Champion ONE Open Network Edge Router

Coming soon: Champion ONE open network edge router

We’re excited to announce we will soon be offering a 10G / 100G Open Network Edge Router!

This device boasts 48x10G SFP+ ports and 6x100G QSFP28 ports for up to 800GB Layer 2/Layer 3 switching capacity, powered by a Broadcom Qumran MX silicon chip. It’s also equipped with a Broadcom Knowledge-Based Processor that greatly augments routing and switching capabilities. The edge router can accommodate millions of IP routes and hundreds of thousands of MAC addresses. All this comes in a compact 1RU enclosure, with either AC or DC power options available. We recommend pairing this hardware with IP Infusion software.

This switch brings the flexibility, scalability, and cost-saving advantages of the open networking model from the heart of the data center to edge router applications. In this application, it offers an attractive alternative to large chassis-based systems and their closed ecosystems. In a survey from a recent DriveNets webinar, 47% of surveyed respondents said that layer 3 edge router is the most important function for disaggregation.

Stay tuned for more information on this solution before its formal launch date in late February 2020.
