The 48-port 10 gigabit switch, CX206P-48S-M-H, comes with 48x 10Gb SFP+ access ports and 6x 100Gb/40Gb QSFP28/QSFP+ ports, offering a total switching capacity of 1.09T. This switch is well-suited for enterprise layer 3 distribution and core networks. Additionally, it serves as a cost-effective top-of-rack switch for private clouds. Thanks to its commercial SONiC NOS-AsterNOS, the switch supports a variety of layer 2 and layer 3 functions, including routing protocols like OSPF and BGP, virtualization features like VXLAN and BGP-EVPN, as well as other capabilities such as MLAG and IPv6 support. Overall, this switch meets the requirements of next-generation Metro and enterprise networks, making it perfect for traditional layer 3 core or fully virtualized data center leaf switches.

    Enterprise SONiC 48 Ports SFP+ Core Switches with PTP Support(Optional)

    Currently, the CX206P-48S offers support for the IEEE1588 PTPv2 standard through both hardware and software. The hardware port offers full support for PTP and can be used as boundary clock(BC) or Ttransparent clock (TC). The module can be flexibly disassembled based on customer requirements.

    On the software side, Asterfusion leads the community in implementing the PTP function in SONiC and optimizing its performance on our Enterprise SONiC Distribution AsterNOS. By utilizing hardware acceleration and software algorithm optimization, the PTP protocol achieves a synchronization deviation of only 10ns, significantly enhancing speed and stability in protocol interaction. Additionally, interoperability is greatly improved as it supports configurations such as restAPI, RestConf, Netconf, and CLI.

    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.

    Does AsterNOS Suport Intel,Broadcom?
    Our AsterNOS software support intel ,not Broadcom.
    What is the difference SONiC and P4, and also tell us the difference of your NOS and those similar.
    SONiC is used in most data center fabric as the basic OS, our software work on both innovium and marvell makes SONiC be able to run these switch chips smoothly, which is our value to help people who want to use innovated features on today’s new switch chip other than broadcom.
    P4 is another approach for today’s network disaggregation, it has pretty good usability in niche markets like gateway, load balance or NPB, in these market when people also want to be part of cloud eco system, they need a way to combine P4 with SONiC, that’s what we are doing, we help people to implement these applications in SONiC way.
    Is it easy for us to change and use the functions (Software) provided by Asterfusion, or to add functions related to the packet control and management function (OAM)?
    It depends on your application, in general you can easily start from either SDE or SONiC to all the functions about date plane and management plane.
