Merchant Silicon / MIPS / ADARA Axis 1148-25/100
The ADARA Axis 1148-25/100 is a high-performance, low-latency Ethernet switch with 48 1/10GbE SFP+ ports and 24 10/40GbE QSFP+ ports and 1 100GbE port in a compact rack-unit size. Port configuration is flexible, as each 40GbE port can be used as four 10GbE ports. The ADARA Axis 1148-25/100 is designed for high availability operation. The switch provides redundant hot-swappable power supplies and fans. A management Ethernet port (10/100/1000) is provided for out-of-band management. The switch can be configured with up to 48 ports of 10GbE, or up to 24 ports of 40GbE and 1 100GbE port. Each 40GbE port can be configured as a 40GbE port or as four 10GbE ports; the 100GbE port can be configured as ten 10GbE ports.
The port modularity allows for flexibility in network design to address a variety of applications and implementations. The ADARA Axis 1148-25/100 is a compact, high-density switch, ideal for use as a leaf switch in large data center, cloud computing or telecom service-provider networks. The small 1U form factor maximizes the space in the rack for compute and storage. The switch provides high (960Mpps) traffic throughput with low power consumption. ADARA software running on this switch provides software solutions including OpenFlow Controller, L2-L3 switching, and other SDN applications.
