The 7-nanometer Q200, Q201, and Q202 directing chips and their L-arrangement exchanging partners length the array from 12.8 Tb/s at the top of the line down to 3.2 Tb/s of steering or exchanging limit at the low end.
"The Cisco Silicon One portfolio currently covers the whole space from specialist co-op and web-scale switches right to the head of rack switches and everything in the middle of," composed Eyal Dagan, SVP of Cisco's basic equipment gathering, in a blog entry.
Cisco's most recent silicon merges all the switch or steering silicon into a solitary pass on. This implies that a switch just requires a solitary chip, while the opposition may need upwards of 10, the organization claims.
Moreover, Cisco's lead Q200 and Q200L chips share a typical impression. The organization guarantees this implies clients can plan a 32-port 400 Gb/s machine that can serve directing or exchanging obligations relying upon which chip is utilized.
While Cisco pursued the top of the line market with the 12.8 Tb/s Q200, its more slow kin actually have a task to carry out, clarified Dagan.
"In spite of the fact that the main exchanging gadgets are at paces of 12.8 Tb/s ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ and soon 25.6 Tb/s ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ we found that numerous clients are looking for profoundly effective 3.2 Tb/s and 6.4 Tb/s [chips] to assume various parts in their organization," he composed.
What's more, since the entirety of the chips are worked around a brought together programming stack, it signifies "clients can port one SDK [software advancement kit] to address different business sectors, while network administrators just need to prepare their care staff once to investigate one design over their whole organization," composed Dagan.
