Supermicro highlights new advances in Software Defined Networking (SDN) with their SuperSwitch. Supermicro’s 1U SDN switch platform was developed using the Intel® Open Network Platform (ONP) top of rack (TOR) switch reference design. Built using the Intel® FM6764 Ethernet Switch and the Intel® Core™ i3 Processor with Intel® Communications Chipset 8900 combined with Intel Open Network Software (ONS). This programmable switch offers flexibility, agility, security and dynamic manageability through SDN and network functions virtualization (NFV). The SuperSwitch Platform supports OpenFlow control protocols and features 48x 10GbE SFP+, 4x 40GbE QSFP and 2x 1GbE RJ45 management ports in a 1U rack mount form factor. The Layer 2/3 SSE-X3848S is ideally suited for high bandwidth Top-of-Rack (ToR) link aggregation with 1,280Gb/s of switching capacity and Layer 3 packet performance of up to 960 million packets per second.
