The Aurora 820 is a high-density 400GbE switch capable to meet tomorrow’s MSDC (Massively Scale Data Center) performance and bandwidth. The next-gen Hyperscale fabrics will rely on 400GbE avoiding costly topology changes and diving deeper into IO intensive workloads such as Deep Learning and NVMe storage networks.
32 QSFP-DD interfaces are backward compatible with QSFP28 and provide a flexible solution for any data center, enterprise, or CSP environment supporting break-out configuration with up to 128x 100G ports.
Aurora 820 offers one RJ-45 ToD port capable of receiving external timing signal or providing synchronization signal to other equipment for time-sensitive applications.
Consistent latency and 12.8Tbps throughput deliver wire-speed Layer 2 and Layer 3 performance. Traffic instrumentation, automation, and visibility features are the key to managing the massive scale and bandwidth of the upcoming networks.
The system has BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) embedded to provide server-style management in the Ethernet switch. Besides the health monitoring of the temperature, power status, and cooling fans; BMC also aids in the deployment and management of software and hardware assets.
