How to Build up a 100G Metro Network?

100G metro network mainly uses the newly-developed coherent packet-optical technology which provides flexibility and scalability as much as the ROADM-based network but without its costly wavelength selective switches (WSS) and optical filters. How to build a 100G Metro Network? This post will give a comprehensive description.

How to Configure MLAG on FS N-Series Switch With Cumulus Linux?

Data center and cloud computing networks require both the highest level of network bandwidth and reliability. MLAG (Multi-Chassis Link Aggregation) makes it possible by taking the benefits of link aggregation, and spreading them across a pair of data center switches to deliver system level redundancy as well as network-level resiliency. It significantly improves network efficiency and simplifies system management, which can be used at various places in the network to eliminate bottlenecks and pr...

FS 25G Portfolio for Data Center 25G/100G Leaf-Spine Network

  FS 25G Portfolio for Data Center 25G/100G Leaf-Spine Network 25G Ethernet is a standard for Ethernet connectivity, which is developed by IEEE 802.3 Task Force P802.3by. Looking back at the evolution of Ethernet standard, 40G and 100G standards have long been active in the market since 2010, while 25G standard was not introduced until 2016. It seems that 25G standard is a step backward, as 40G and 100G already exist. But in fact, the ...

Ring Protection Protocol: ERPS vs. EAPS

Used for ring topology, the ring protection protocol adopts the pervasion mechanism to transmit the change of network topology, which is critical to reduce interference between nodes and extend lifetime of the network. Ethernet ring protection switching (ERPS) and Ethernet automatic protection switching (EAPS) are two types of ring protection protocol. Here makes a detailed illustration of ERPS vs. EAPS. What Is ERPS and How Does It Work? ERPS (Ethernet ring protection switching), is a proto...

NCLU Smooths Networking Transition to Cumulus Linux

The communication industry is embracing Linux-based switch hardware and software to build affordable, agile and high-capacity networks. However, to maximize operational efficiency, IT engineers need not only advanced network functions, but also more concise command line interfaces and configuration approaches - because even the command lines of various Linux-based switches are similar, not all the engineers are necessary with a Linux background. To simplify network configuration and make Cumulu...

Does an Open Switch With Cumulus Linux Equal a Proprietary Switch?

As you may know that open network is a hot topic these days. It is enabled by several parts such as open source software, open compute hardware, etc. Under this trend, another related topic, open switch, has caught much attention as well. Then, what is open switch? How does it differ from the traditional proprietary switch? In this post, we will focus on the comparison on a proprietary switch (Cisco, Juniper and HPE switches, etc.) and an open switch preloaded with the open source software Cumul...

Is Open Switch Ready for Enterprise Network?

In the networking realm, the term open switch gets thrown around often. Based on a complete separation of switch hardware and software, open networking switch is gaining more traction in the data center hardware world. This is by building a scalable, programmable and agile network with simplified operation and management. It is reshaping the landscape of networking while being a disruptive rival to those established, proprietary switch vendors. So what is special about an open switch? Is it the ...
