TOR Switch at Interop Tokyo SDI Showcase

Check out Advantech’s Top-of-Rack (TOR) Switch in the Intel area at the Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) Showcase in Hall 6.

The ESP-9212 open, programmable switching platform  is built on the Intel® Xeon® E3-1265L v2 processor connected to a Broadcom StrataXGS switch processor with six 40GbE ports and forty-four 10GbE ports in a 1U rackmount design. Just what you need to build highly scalable, feature-rich, TOR switches and aggregation equipment to connect big data, cloud and optimized workloads in the data center.

Advantech’s open platform approach enables SDN solution providers with a flexible and high performance OEM-Ready product upon which they can easily deploy new and enhanced features to meet next generation data center switching needs.

The switch can be centrally managed through an Orchestrator and a number of Controllers. This allows administrators to dynamically adjust traffic flow across the underlying infrastructure to meet changing customer demands. OpenFlow can be used to orchestrate and implement packet processing functions by adding flow entries to OpenFlow flow tables on the switch and defining action sets for packet editing and forwarding. It can interrogate status of OpenFlow ports and queues, and receive events such as port state changes or flow expiration through services of the controller via the OpenFlow agent on the switch.
