UfiSpace, DriveNets, and Credo Showcases 350Tbps Routing Cluster Orchestration at OCP Summit

2021/11/03

This year at the OCP Summit 2021 Experience Center, UfiSpace, Credo and DriveNets once again collaborate to build the world's largest network routing system using the distributed disaggregated chassis design. Our showcase included a demonstration of DriveNet's cloud network orchestration and how Credo's AEC cables can be interconnected with UfiSpace's routing hardware.

What is a Distributed Disaggregated Chassis?

The distributed disaggregated chassis (DDC) was a design contributed by AT&T to OCP and was first commercialized by UfiSpace and DriveNets. It took apart the traditional monolithic routing chassis by distributing each function into standalone white boxes each with its own power and cooling. By doing this, a router can be built according to current capacity and add on additional boxes whenever more is needed. The service provider would have more control over their capital investment by scaling capacity using this pay-as-you-grow model.
 

UfiSpace Core and Edge Routers

UfiSpace's DDC cluster showcased consists of four components: a 100G and 400G line card system, a 400G fabric switch, interconnected AEC cables and the software.
 

UfiSpace 100G Line Card

The high density 400G line card system, S9705-48D, is UfiSpace's next generation router providing 36x400G service ports taking the routing cluster to capacities never seen before. It also has a TCAM option. For more information about UfiSpace's high density 400G router, please contact our sales team.

UfiSpace 400G Fabric Switch
