At the OCP Engineering Workshop, Accton Technology open sourced the design of the AS7500-32X 100 Gigabit Ethernet open network switch, making it an early entry of open network switches based on the Cavium XPliant Switch ASIC. As far as the packaging and x86-based CPU are concerned, the AS7500-32X is the same as the AS7700-32X 100 GbE switch that Accton contributed to the Open Compute Project in March. The AS7500 also uses the same designs for power supplies, fans and enclosures – all in line with Accton’s strategy to develop a consistent open networking switch line.
Accton Technology Corporation, the leading developer and manufacturer of open network switches, today announced that it has contributed switch software to Atrium, the Open Network Foundation’s (ONF) open source SDN distribution for OpenFlow™-based SDN deployments. Accton also announced that it will make available open switch software distributions with additional features to enable customers, data center operators, software providers and the open source community to develop software applications to automate and control networks deploying Accton’s Edge-Core open network switches.
