Delta joins EANTC Interop Test, Verifying Disaggregation Model in MPLS Networks

Delta’s AGC7648A Deep Buffer Switch Joined SR & LDP Test in EANTC’s 2018 Multivendor Interoperability Test

Delta, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions, announced today that the AGC76480A, a Deep Buffer Open Switch from Agema - which is an open networking product line from Delta Electronics - has successfully joined Segment Routing and Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) interoperability tests conducted by EANTC, Berlin. This respected achievement recognises Agema Systems as an open switch vendor joining the selective test items. Significantly, it proves the validity of the disaggregation model set to be adopted by production carrier networks over the coming years, as well as reflecting the collaboration necessary between participating vendors to help realise the disaggregation model.

The recently accredited AGC7648A (48*10G + 6*100G) is based on Broadcom’s DNX series ASICs and has been designed to be ideally suited to carrier network environments. Equipped with large external TCAM and Packet Buffer, AGC7648A is ideal for mobile backhaul and datacenter interconnect. It will be exhibited at MPLS + SDN + NFV World Congress 2018, hosted on 10-13 April 2018, at the Marriott Conference Center, Paris. Delta’s stand can be found at Booth No. 311.

Along with showing the AGC7648A at MPLS + SDN + NFV World Congress 2018, Delta Electronics will also introduce the AGC5648S, a Jericho+ ASIC based platform aimed at carrier grade networks, and the AG9064, a Tomahawk-based platform ideally suited for data centres and spine connections. The comprehensive Agema product line facilitates the realisation of Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) infrastructure, while also driving the benefits of CAPEX and OPEX reductions that SDNs and NFV promise to deliver.

Currently, Agema is expanding its platforms to offer and deliver higher bandwidth, scaling from 100GbE to 400GbE, while delivering more flexible programmability through Broadcom’s SDK which has been developed specifically for carrier network operators.

Commenting on the AGC7648A successfully joining EANTC’s SR and LDP interoperability tests, Jay Huang, President of Agema Product Line, said: “The AGC7648A has already impressed the market with its combination of performance, scalability and flexibility. Successfully joining EANTC’s test is an achievement that proves interoperability with other leading brand network solutions, which is a big step for the move toward the disaggregation model in carrier networks.”
