Merchant Silicon / MIPS / ADARA Axis 1166-6
The ADARA Axis 1166-6 is a high-performance, low-latency Ethernet switch with 60 1/10GbE SFP+ ports and 6 10/40GbE QSFP+ ports in a compact rack-unit size. Port configuration is flexible, as each 40GbE port can be used as four 10GbE ports. The ADARA Axis1166-6 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 60 ports of 10GbE, or up to 6 ports of 40GbE. Each 40GbE port can be configured as a 40GbE port or as four 10GbE ports.
The port modularity allows for flexibility in network design to address a variety of applications and implementations. The ADARA Axis 1166-6 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.
