Optimize Real-World Throughput with Cisco Silicon One
Packet buffer capacity in a switch is a critical parameter that influences the throughput of a network. Ultra-high-speed switches use Static Random-Access Memory (SRAM)-based buffering, a scarce and expensive resource. Employing an innovative, fully shared architecture, Cisco Silicon One devices extract maximum and predictable performance from the available buffer.
Challenging Times Quicken the Pace of the Overlay Movement
The network is more relevant today than it’s ever been, but it must be commensurate with the services it’s supporting. Service providers can reap the benefits of innovation but they need to be prepared to be decisive and invest in the future.
Co-Packaged Optics and an Open Ecosystem
The pace of bandwidth growth isn’t slowing down, and each generation draws more power than the last. To address this, the industry needs to move to co-packaged optics. Today we are announcing a collaboration between Inphi and Cisco to drive an open ecosystem around the technology.
How to Transform from Linear to Circular Models
Take a closer look at some of the current initiatives focused on a circular economy design and the transformation we’re spearheading both internally and with partners.
Five Principles at the Heart of Cisco Silicon One
Take a look at the five principles that make Cisco Silicon One an innovative solution.
How Cisco Silicon One Can Help You Save Millions
Compare to other architectures, Cisco Silicon One can save up to 580kW of power in a web scale data center, fundamentally changing the economics of the industry. Web scalers can turn this into cost savings, increase revenue by adding more servers or help minimize their carbon footprint.
Turn Router Power into Cash Savings with Better Silicon
Power is our fundamental limitation. It limits what we can build, what customers can deploy, and what our planet can sustain. This creates a technological imperative, a business imperative and most importantly a moral imperative to innovate. Learn how Cisco Silicon One may reduce your power bill by up to 71% saving over $140,000 per system and help save the planet.
One Architecture on Multiple Devices with No Compromise
Today we expand the Cisco Silicon One portfolio from a primarily routing focused solution to include the entire web scale switching market. With six new 7nm devices released in under 10 months from our initial launch, we now cover the entire space from 3.2T to 12.8T and across routing and web scale switching. All this with a fully unified architecture, SDK, and P4 forwarding code offers convergence without compromise.
