New Netberg Aurora Switches on Nephos Taurus ASIC.

Taipei, Taiwan 8th of October 2018.

Netberg today launches a new series of bare metal switch (BMS) hardware with Nephos Taurus switching silicon.

The Aurora 740 and Aurora 705 switches are high performance and programmable products, utilizing a purpose-built ASIC architecture designed to addresses next-generation network automation (real-time visibility/switch table state modification) for hyper-scale markets.

The Aurora 740 is the first model from Netberg with 64x100G QSPF28 ports, bringing the new level of scalability and efficiency for the spine layer of a network. Using 64-port boxes instead of 32-port models at the spine layer doubles your potential network size without building PODs and adding Super-Spines. The Aurora 705 is a traditional 32x100G QSFP28 port switch, aimed to be a workhorse at a modern DC or telecom network.

Utilizing Nephos Taurus ASIC family, new models bring strong benefits to the network:

  • Wire-speed programmable deep packet classification, flexible and recursive match/result-actions, packet generation/modification, fungible match and result memory including real-time instrumentation, packet diagnostics, and state updates
  • Advanced L2-L5 programmable entropy with micro and jumbo flow-steering for better fabric utilization
  • Larger Service Scale: >800K IP addresses, >70K ACLs, push > 10 labels (MPLS or user-defined)
  • Granular Fungible Memories for all Tables and database result Memories (Flexible Shared Data structures for Forwarding, QoS, Instrumentation, and Security)
  • Large packet buffers.

Available software includes Microsoft SONiC and Open Network Linux with development tools.
