Pluribus touts support for two new Celstica carrier grade white boxes, or switches.
Pluribus Networks, the open networking and next generation software-defined networking (SDN) vendor, says its Netvisor ONE operating system (OS) release 5.1 will support Celestica’s Edgestone carrier-grade white-box central office switch. This news targets telecom service providers looking to expand data center infrastructure to the central office, in line with an edge architecture.
Pluribus Networks says it has designed a system that is purpose built for distributed cloud and the edge.
“We’re bringing to the market with Celestica the industry’s first top of rack switch designed for the central office environment,” Mike Capuano, chief marketing officer, at Pluribus Networks told Channel Partners.
Thursday’s announcement includes three key pieces:
Last June, Pluribus introduced the world’s first white box multitenant data center gateway router, based on containerized virtual routers (vRouters), offering a step-function improvement in price performance for north-south data center traffic and cloud interconnect.
The overall Pluribus offer targets a broad set of the industry.
“That’s because it’s very applicable to modernizing a single data center but it shows its strength in multisite data centers or edge environments,” said Capuano. “If you look at the industry trends, no matter what vertical you look at – health care, MSP, or regional cloud service provider or telco – everyone is moving from central data center to distributed to the extreme of distributed which is the edge. All of those folks are candidates for our adaptive cloud fabric.”
This particular announcement targets telcos because Pluribus is introducing a new central office design and integrated with Red Hat OpenStack, which is popular with telcos.
