QuantaMesh BMS T7040-IXAE

Networking Router for Carrier Networks and Service Providers

  • 40 x 100G QSFP28
  • ArcOS® Ready

Overview

Bare-metal switches are driving the data center market as the high demands for cost-effective switch platforms and flexibility open hardware from service providers. With the upcoming era of 5G, the demands of Bare-metal boxes will continue to be strong. 5G advances the network applications which will need high reliable and scalable infrastructure deployment. Bare-metal boxes are now penetrating the carrier network. This trend is migrating from bare-metal switches to bare-metal routers.

 

Quanta Cloud Technology(QCT) provides a series of Bare Metal Switches, the QCT BMS product line, that addresses these changes in the data center market.  The QCT BMS product lines support speeds up to 400GbE speeds on its Ethernet Switches.  To meet the requirements of high performance, high availability, fast scale-out, low latency performance, and continuous serviceability in data center applications, the QCT BMS product line is the best choice.

The 100G Core Router for Carrier Networks and Service Providers

QCT has taken a revolutionary approach to deliver the a bare-metal router platform-IXAE. The unprecedented innovation has disrupted the traditional networking market of using proprietary routers, offering service providers opportunities to choose their desire software. IXAE is purpose-built for a high-performance 5G environment. It provides comprehensive switching and routing features which include VXLAN, IPv4/IPv6, and MPLS. 

 

QCT QuantaMesh T7040-IXAE is an open core router platform that supports 40 100GbE ports in a compact 1U form factor. In a total bandwidth of 4 Terabits per second, IXAE offers a high-density solution for core-layer deployments in the central office.  Equipped with two Broadcom Jericho 2 BCM88690 chips, the QCT QuantaMesh T7040-IXAE is rated at 2B PPS processing and  includes a 8GB deep packet buffer with HBM.  With deep buffer and large table size, IXAE enables lossless forwarding with high- density. The telemetry features enable IXAE to operate network traffic more efficiently in the core-layer of networks.
