ECONOMICAL SCALABILITY

With commodity hardware and a standardized Linux stack, Our customers have increased operational efficiency by reducing time to production by up to 95%, reduced CapEx by up to one third and reduced OpEx by up to 74%.

BUILT FOR THE AUTOMATION AGE

Cumulus Linux is a powerful, networking-focused, Linux distribution based on Debian that offers a completely open architecture and is designed for easy automation.

STANDARDIZED TOOLSETS

Existing open source and commercial Linux applications run natively. That means you can use your existing tools, for automation and others, to improve efficiency and multiply the number of switches per operator.

CHOICE AND FLEXIBILITY

Choose from the widest range of port configs available from Edge-Core Networks including two different types of silicon. Build your network based on your needs and your budget, and pivot easily as the industry changes.

Net Q

NetQ, a telemetry-based fabric validation system, ensures your network is behaving exactly as you intended.

It provides the ability to trace network paths, replay the network state at a time in the past, review fabric-wide event changelogs and diagnose the root cause of state deviations

Routing on the Host

Host Pack uses an open source routing protocol, FRRouting, to enable BGP unnumbered on the host — enabling mobility and resiliency in container networking. You can now unify your entire fabric from host to layer 3.

  • Routing. Dynamically advertises & redistributes container IP addresses to the network.
  • Simplification. Eliminates complexities & performance impact of layer 2 network overlay.
  • Synthesis. Extends layer 3 network from the core to the container unifying protocols and tools throughout the entire data center.

Accton Edge-Core Open Networking Hardware

Edge-Core Networks are the largest single contributor to the Open Compute Project. With a R&D team of over 600 engineers, and port configurations to suit any combination of requirements.

Cumulus Linux is designed and tested to run on more than 14 Edge-Core bare metal switches, ranging from 1GbE to 100GbE.
