The partners expanded their support for Pluribus’ network operating system and cloud fabric software on five additional Edgecore white box, top-of-rack switches.
These devices will be open, disaggregated, interoperable, and supplier-neutral, and they target mobile operators’ 5G deployments.
This white box reference design is available to any hardware maker to use as a guide to build cell site gateway routers. And they can be paired with disaggregated software.
Adtran, Dell EMC, Edgecore Networks, and Juniper Networks joined the ONF at the partner level in which they each pay $500,000 per year for five years.
