Facebook in Production Testing of Open ‘Wedge’ Switch

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Hot Interconnects — Facebook is in production testing of its open Wedge switch design, and is on track to contribute the design and software to the Open Compute Project. Wedge is a “top-of-rack” (small, simple, low-cost) switch with 16 (or 32) 40Gbit/s Ethernet ports, designed to be the “first building block” of the “Facebook disaggregated switching technology,” according to a presentation here by Facebook Network Architect Yuval Bachar.
