Aries MT3250 Family

  • Greatest architectural scalability, ranging from 480G to 960G and >900K IP addresses with >80K ACL all under one efficient and familiar software eco system
  • Hyper-efficient solutions for best of breed next generation datacenters: designed from the start to provide the lowest joules/gigabit over all IC fabrication nodes
  • Advanced purpose-built deterministic pipeline addresses the extremely cost sensitive access 2.5G/10G Enterprise and Carrier client connectivity markets
  • The first micro-code programmable 28nm switch to reach mass production (first ASIC A0 revision went MP CY Q2 2016)
  • Programmable deep packet classification, programmable recursive match, result and actions, efficient granular and fully fungible match/result table memories, programmable packet generation/modification including real-time visibility instruments and fast path based advanced diagnostics
  • Truly Open Software ecosystem including the Nephos Operating System (NPOS) and multiple NOS and Application from third party partners
  • Full product line with unique price (many unique cost points) allow perfect fit of power, price and performance for all data center tiers and applications
  • Lowest TCO achieved through simplicity and leading architectural efficiency: A perfect fit of power-price-performance matched to any Datacenter size/shape
  • Lowest TCO possible for Ethernet networking infrastructure: Lowest CAPEX: less PCB layers, smaller power supply, smallest software image for minimum DRAM at the host CPU. Lowest OPEX: Maximum uptime due to advanced real-time programmable troubleshooting, analytics, instrumentation & packet based telemetry yet maintains the lowest energy bill (lowest typical, average and peak power per gigabit).

Taurus Family NP8360 Series

  • Advanced purpose-built architecture designed to addresses next generation network automation (real-time visibility/switch table state modification) for hyper-scale markets 1.08T to 6.4T (10G/25G/40G/50G/100G NRZ connectivity)
  • Pioneering the disaggregated network componentry era: First to production with ‘Network scale multi-die package technology’ allowing highest yields, best price-performance fit for the absolute lowest TCO
  • Taurus 6.4T multi-die package debut, greatest efficiency requires we all, “do more with less”
  • Full widest product line range, offering more unique price points (many different individual unique power, scale and cost points) thus allow perfect fit of power, price and performance for all data center tiers and applications
  • 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 best of breed close loop or open loop fabric utilization
  • Largest 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)
  • Truly Open Software ecosystem including the Nephos Operating System (NPOS) or multiple NOS options from a complete partner eco-system
  • Lowest power of any mass production released 16nm 6.4T NRZ merchant ASIC devices in the market

Only one familiar software and one engineering porting expenditure will yield a complete comprehensive system portfolio, spanning 480G – 6.4T at lowest TCO

Cloud gets its power from scale. 

Scale requires great efficiency. 

So, only the simplest solutions reliably reach the ultimate scale. 

Taurus is both physically and philosophically perfectly aligned for achieving the greatest cloud scale at the lowest TCO.

Note : “Absolute maximum power dissipation can only be achieve in a Nephos Laboratory under specific non-real world traffic conditions”

Taurus 6.4T performance test

“Taurus Ingrasys 64X100G Lowest Power System in Mass Production System 2017”

“Lowest OPEX solution for 100G 4×25 NRZ solutions.”

“Only 2.7 degree temperature rise; smallest CAPEX (smallest Power supply, low PCM layer and smallest Heat sink.  Save 100W at 3.2T
32x100G and 90W on 6.4T 64x100G  NRZ over incumbent”
