Ground-breaking Performance Sets Stage for Large Scale Cloud & Enterprise Data Centers
SANTA ROSA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 20, 2018 — Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, today announced that the company‘s Ixia Solutions Group and Innovium, Inc., a leading provider of networking solutions for data centers, have collaborated for 12.8 Terabits per second (Tbps) performance at 100GbE to 400GbE speeds for large scale data centers on Innovium’s TERALYNXTM switch family.
The Innovium TERALYNX product line is a high-performance scalable Ethernet switch silicon family offering leading analytics, programmability, and buffering. TERALYNX delivers industry-leading 12.8 Tbps performance in a single-chip along with robust tunneling, line-rate programmability and best-in-class low-latency, resulting in a compelling advantage compared to alternatives. TERALYNX includes broad support for 10/25/40/50/100/200/400GE standards that can be flexibly configured to deliver 128 ports of 100GbE, 64 ports of 200GbE or 32 ports of 400GbE in a single device.
“We are excited to partner with Keysight to drive 12.8 Tbps TERALYNX switch performance using Keysight’s 400GE solution,” said Amit Sanyal, vice president of product management and marketing of Innovium. “Achieving this performance at up to 400GbE speeds is important as we work with customers, system vendors and copper and optical interconnect ecosystem partners to drive successful adoption of solutions based on TERALYNX.”
The K400 400GE validation solution from Keysight’s Ixia Solutions Group enables full line-rate traffic generation including transmit, receive, and capture, FEC, and Bit Error Rate testing functionality from 64B to 14,000B frame lengths, and comprehensive Layer 2/3 routing protocol emulation coverage. This ensures that 400GE solutions meet the performance, scale and quality requirements required by the industry. The K400 test system facilitates stress testing, hardware/ASIC development, optics and cable qualification, interoperability and functional testing.
“Keysight continues to lead the market in bringing proven validation solutions like the K400 load module to market,” said Sunil Kalidindi, vice president of product management of Keysight’s Ixia Solutions Group. “Companies like Innovium look to us for proven test and measurement technology to ensure that they provide their customers with solutions that work. We are proud to work with Innovium on this ground-breaking project to validate 12.8 Tbps performance.”
Innovium will demonstrate its TERALYNX switch solutions at the Open Compute Project U.S. Summit in San Jose, California, March 20th – 21st, 2018. Those interested in meeting Innovium may contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Keysight’s Ixia Solutions Group will provide information regarding the K400 400GE QSFP-DD test system at OCP in booth C19.
