Cisco 8000 Series Routers
Why optics are more important than ever for high performance routing (Part 4 of 6): Cisco Optics Podcast Episode 32
Join us for Episode 32 of the Cisco Optics Podcast, where we continue our conversation with Ammar Khan, Product Management Leader for the Cisco’s 8000 Series Router.
Preparing for Cisco 8000 Series Routers
With great technology solutions, comes great responsibility — for the teams that manage them and the ones who empower them.
SONiC in the Real World
Cisco has teamed up with Microsoft to present our unique vendor and operator perspectives on Software for Open Networking in the Cloud (SONiC) enablement. Join our team for the first in a series of collaborativley-authored blogs on building and operating next generation networks with SONiC.
Try the New 8000 Emulator Sandbox for SONiC
A modern, cloud-scale data center network requires resilient server-to-server communication. When faced with a rapid increase in the number of devices on the network, Software for Open Networking in the Cloud (SONiC) can help in the most demanding cloud networks.
Meet Rapidly Scaling Cloud Data Center Requirements with SONiC
Learn how SONiC (Software for Open Networking in the Cloud) allows cloud operators to share the same software stack across hardware from multiple vendors. See how the SONiC Switch Abstraction Interface (SAI) enables ASIC and hardware abstraction and network operating systems portability.
Assessing the Real-World Environmental Impact of Routers
Networking equipment power claims are complicated. Is it chip, card, or system power being stated, and how was it evaluated? To pursue more energy-efficient routers and switches, we need to understand what this really means.
Achieve a Secure, Sustainable Network with Cisco 8000
In the age of IoT, security is critical to a sustainable future. Learn how we’re building secure, longer-lasting products that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve your bottom line.
Cisco and SONiC
On November 9th and 10th, we had the opportunity to showcase our commitment at the 2021 Open Compute Project Global Summit with a demo scaling a next generation data center with SONiC VXLAN on the Cisco 8000 for customers wanting a fully integrated system with the silicon, platform, and IOS-XR from Cisco, or wants to run SONiC on Cisco hardware (Cisco 8000), or wants a Silicon only offering.
Keeping Cool with QSFP-DD800 Optics
History has been very clear that for broad industry adoption of the 800G generation, an optical pluggable form factor must be judged on: (1) Backwards compatibility with previous generation optics (2) 100G+ electrical performance (3) Excellent thermal power dissipation The recent QSFP-DD MSA updates ensure all of these, but I’d like to focus on the […]
