Data Center Network Operating System Software for Micro Servers, Blade Systems and Top of Rack Data Centers
Capgemini Engineering’s Intelligent Switching Software (ISS) has 10+ years of successful history, with over 100 clients worldwide. ISS is used by Tier 1 OEM clients to build switches and routers. It is deployed in large data centers and carrier networks.
Intel and Capgemini Engineering have worked together for a long time – since 2008 and achieved many significant milestones together. Capgemini Engineering was the first ISV to bring its ISS switch software on FM4000 and FM6000 series to enable low latency 10G switches. Capgemini Engineering’s ISS software and Intel chipsets have powered some of the world’s first low-latency 24x10G blade switches inside the x86 blade systems.
Capgemini Engineering offers a comprehensive Network Operating System solution, comprising chassis management, system startup infrastructure, portable library for OS abstraction, persistent database and hardware abstraction layer to support multiple families Intel families including FM10000, FM6000, F. The software also supports hardened L2 features including VLAN, RSTP, LACP and IGMP, scalable routing through OSPF, BGP and multicast ( PIM SM, DM) software, supports both IPv4 and IPv6. ISS management software provides SSH, SNMP and CLI interfaces. Capgemini Engineering’s data center software provides DCBX, LLDP, PFC, ETS, VXLAN gateway, Ethernet VPN (eVPN) and fiber channel switch infrastructure ( NPV, NPIV Modes) and FCF functions for blade systems. Capgemini Engineering ISS also enables next-generation networking through OpenFlow, NETCONF and YANG management interfaces.
As part of the partnership, Capgemini Engineering’s ISS has been ported on Intel FM10000 that provides advanced Ethernet switch capabilities for NFV and data center applications. The software has two variations.
Capgemini Engineering ported its software to Intel ONP 2.0 using the standard Linux netlike interfaces. It provides our clients’ an option to choose from open source or Capgemini Engineering’s ISS field hardened software for control plane of switch. Another option is to use Capgemini Engineering ISS integration over Intel Ethernet Switch (IES) family APIs.
Pure and Hybrid OpenFlow Switching Solution
Capgemini Engineering’s pure and hybrid OpenFlow Switching Solution is an industry leading, field-proven, comprehensive Layer-2 and Layer-3 switching and routing framework, integrated with the ONF compliant OpenFlow client version 1.3.1. Capgemini Engineering’s framework can be used to build hybrid and pure OpenFlow switches and routers for enterprise, transport, and datacenter networks.
Fast Path Accelerator
Capgemini Engineering’s Fast Path Accelerator (FPA) is an implementation of OpenFlow pipeline processing requirements given in ONF OpenFlow specification version 1.3.1. FPA is implemented on Intel’s Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) for multi-core platforms. FPA’s architecture is modular, with flexible building blocks that can easily be extended to other multi-core platforms. FPA is designed to provide high performance and scalability tailored to multi-core environments.
