Cavium sampling programmable Ethernet switches

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2017-07-26
Cavium is sampling two new families of 10GbE/25GbE optimized programmable Ethernet switches.

The XP70  scales from 1Tbps to 1.8Tbps and provides seamless 1GBASE-T to 10GBASE-T and 10GbE to 25GbE access connectivity upgrades for enterprise, data center, and carrier networks with support for 40GbE/100GbE uplink connectivity.

The XP60 family brings programmable Ethernet switching capabilities to the campus, embedded, and carrier access markets with devices that scale from 280Gbps to 720Gbps.

The XP60 and XP70 families, combined with the production qualified XP80 family of products now extend Cavium’s XPliant programmable architecture from 3.2Tbps down to 280Gbps.

According to Dell ‘Oro, more than 50% of all servers will be 10GE based by end of 2017, with 10GBase-T shipments growing the fastest and eventually overtaking SFP+ shipments by 2019. Dell’Oro attributes this growth, in part, to the fact that twisted-pair cable has long remained a popular choice for connectivity due to its low cost and ability to terminate exact cable lengths in the field.

Additionally, these installed cable plants support seamless upgrades from 1GbE to 10GbE, giving the data center operators a simple choice for scaling their networks to support LAN/SAN consolidation and virtualization.

Today 100GbE is emerging as the optimal choice for the core network connectivity, for both intra- and inter-data center applications, due to optical component and OEM “system level” prices that have fallen below the 40GbE benchmark, which has been considered and deployed as the “next step up” from 10GbE.
