The Asterfusion CX202P-16S-M-H switch is equipped with 16 x 10Gb SFP+, 2 x 100Gb/40Gb QSFP28 QSFP+ ports. It’s well suited for enterprise distribution and core, high bandwidth interconnection for video distribution and security. It can also be used as the cost-effective ToR switch for private cloud. This open network switch is preloaded with AsterNOS, a feature-rich and high-quality assured enterprise NOS distribution of SONiC which is a container-based application development and deployment makes the switch easy to expand new functionalities even by users. It supports complete Layer 3 IPv4 and IPv6 routing protocols as well as functions such as VXLAN for virtual network expansion.

    What are the feature that your SONiC support?
    It built on top of standard Linux systems and with SONiC/SAI as its kernel is characterized by fully open structure, completely decoupled hardware and software, loosely unionized software modules, high reliability architecture, and easy functional expansion. It leverages the latest technologies such as containers and in-memory database.
    Does AsterNOS can run on other vendor’s hardware?
    Our SONiC based AsterNOS can perfect run on our own hardware, in theory it can run on other vendor’s Tofino based hardware, there wil be a problem on verifng the compatibility between our software and other vedor’s hardware,we can arrange a meeting call discuss specically. I strongly suggest you to use our own hardware, which supports the best software compatibility, tech support, hardware stability and of course very good cost.
    Is there any license fee or software support fee that we need to pay for your version of SONiC?

    Usually our AsterNOS runs on our own hardware (for Tofino and Teralynx), we provide either bare metal hardware, or hardware with AsterNOS, there is some amount of software cost if you choose H/W and S/W bundle, but this bundle should be more cost effective than today’s WhiteBox from one vendor and NOS from another vendor.
