Big Switch Networks packages technology components into fabric solutions, bringing Software Defined Networks (SDN) advanced feature sets to you at competitive price points. We are working to apply these core technologies to many key networking markets - starting with data center and monitoring networks.
By packaging Edge-core Open Networking Switches into Open SDN Fabric Solutions, customers are now transforming the way production networks deployed, operated and maintained. For years, hyperscale data center operators have been enjoying the benefits of open networking: automated and accelerated provisioning of network capacity and services, greater control over the development of enhanced network services, flexibility to work with best-in-class suppliers, reduced network equipment expenses, and reduced operating expenses. Through partnerships such as this, open network benefits are now available for many network use cases.
Big Cloud Fabric is the industry’s first data center fabric built using Edge-core open networking switches and SDN controller technology. Embracing hyperscale data center design principles, the Big Cloud Fabric solution enables rapid innovation, ease of provisioning and management, while reducing overall costs, making it ideal for current and next-generation data centers.
Some of the typical BCF deployment scenarios include:
Big Monitoring Fabric is a next-generation Network Packet Broker (NPB) that’s been designed from the ground-up to build a pervasive visibility and security fabric. Using an SDN-centric architecture, Big Mon enables scale-out fabric for enterprise-wide monitoring, single pane of glass for operational simplicity, and multi-tenancy for multiple IT teams (NetOps, DevOps, SecOps) to simultaneously perform network monitoring using out-of-band or inline tools and policies.
With Big Monitoring Fabric scale-out architecture, simplified operations and bare metal switch economics, it is rapidly becoming an attractive replacement for NPBs, creating a few popular use cases:
Edge-core Networks is a leader in the open network ecosystem, delivering complete solutions to customers with a broad set of partners.
