Asterfusion® CX-T switches can support advanced networking functions such as DCB, ECN, RoCE, DCTCP, DCQCN, and multi-path resilient hash needed in building converged Ethernet networks with low latency, near-zero packet loss, and line-rate performance packet forwarding, achieving triple convergence of Compute, Storage, and Network service functions in modern cloud data centers.
Asterfusion® X3-T switch adopts the industry-leading PISA 1 architecture, a fully pipelined programmable switching ASIC design. When compared with existing and fixed-function switches, Asterfusion® X3-T switch with the P4 programmable switching ASIC can support features like programmable protocol parsing, programmable resource allocation, programmable forwarding logic, etc. and fully complies with the P4.org standards.
Asterfusion® X3-T switch can be run with the open and easy-to-use AsterNOS-Framework. AsterNOS-Framework integrates the P4 Runtime as a container into the SONiC-Light (a light-weight SONiC) system, in which developers not only can use SONiC to develop comprehensive control & management plane functions in accordance with their NetDevOps requirements but also can develop a flexible P4 data plane functions in accordance with their application needs.
Each Asterfusion® X3-T switch can support up to two multi-core ARM SoC intelligent service processing units and each processing unit contains tenths of network co-processor cores. These network co-processor cores can significantly improve Asterfusion® X3-T switch’s performance in complex service functions. At the same time, Asterfusion® X3-T switch comes with a basic network operating system framework, FusionNOS-Framework. Network developers can use FusionNOS-Framework as the foundation to develop their own upper-layer applications and can accelerate application porting & development process.
Asterfusion® X3-T switch comes with preinstalled ONIE, a software module in which almost any network operating system software can be installed from; thus offering network administrators the capability of the automatic installation, upgrade and management of network operating systems for thousands of data center switches.
