In a 2u rack space, Asterfusion® X564P-T switch can provide up to 64*100GE interfaces, 2*10GE SFP+ interfaces and can provide a maximum of 258 *10GE/25GE interfaces through break cables.
Asterfusion® X5-T switch provides users an open & transparent network system, different from the black box approach in the past. It adopts the industry-leading PISA1 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® X5-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.
Asterfusion® X5-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.
