About iwNetworks SDN 8254S
The iwNetworks SDN series of high-performance L2/L3 network switches are ideal for data centers and cloud computing. Seamlessly integrate them into a standard environment with its unique hybrid configuration, which allows for the concurrent operation of industry-standard L2/L3 protocols and industry-leading OpenFlow. Users can experiment by controlling the level of adaptation of an open network fabric, making it ideal for both enterprise and research data centers.
The SDN series of switches are comprised of enterprise-class hardware with 1GbE and 10GbE options. The switch provides redundant, hot-swappable AC or DC PSUs and redundant fans, with port-to-power and power-to-port airflow options. The SDN series runs IWOS, a Linux-based operating system that integrates L2/L3 protocols with an OpenFlow v1.0/v1.2 agent. With support for open switch applications, IWOS provides a programmatic API for custom switch programs and protocols.
The SDN 8254S is a high performance wire-speed layer 2/3 switch platform, with non-blocking performance of 48 port 10/100/1000 Mbps and 4 10GE uplink ports. It is embedded with 4MB of packet buffers, 32K of MAC entries and up to 16K of routing rules. It is capable of handling both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic and is equipped with a storm control feature to avoid Broadcast or Multicast storms in the data center.
The switch provides a full set of Layer 2 switching features used for aggregating servers within a rack, or accorss an easily managed medium sized data center fabric. A full set of IPv4 and IPv6 routing features, including ECMP, OSPF, and BGP, supports integratiion with a large Layer 3 data center fabric. The SDN 8254S provides for power redundancy with two customer replaceable power supplies. Each power supply can individually provide enough power to the 8254S to run at wire speed. Connect each power supply to a separate power source for power redundancy.
