Myth Busting Part 3: Not all 400G and 800G switches are created equally
While other network providers continue to use commodity chips, Cisco has been developing custom silicon for Nexus switches since 2014. Creating our own ASIC was the only way to fully realize the promise of software-defined networking and enable advanced capabilities like network segmentation, flexible forwarding, intelligent buffering, and deep telemetry.
The Network. Powering Hybrid Work.
Cisco is releasing several innovative technology enhancements that will enhance IT’s ability to support hybrid work in all types of organizations.
Cisco Silicon One Powers the Next-Generation Enterprise Switches
The new Catalyst enterprise switches include Cisco Silicon One Q200 ASICs, delivering truly converged switching and routing silicon architecture. Learn how this creates the most powerful, power-efficient campus core switches.
Internet2 Next Generation Infrastructure now Operational
Cisco has transitioned Internet2’s research and education (R&E) network traffic to a Next Generation Infrastructure (NGI), a fifth-generation backbone that supports up to 32 terabits per segment (Tbps) throughput with zero congestion — a 4X increase in performance.
Hybrid Work is the New Reality
Hybrid work has become a popular topic with the slow recovery from a global pandemic that suddenly threw many people into virtual working and left companies unprepared for the change. That’s where hybrid work comes in, offering both employers and employees the best of both worlds.
Cisco and Meta Partner on Wedge400C Data Center Switch
Cisco and Meta (formerly Facebook) unveil the Wedge400C, a 12.8 Tbps OCP white box system that utilizes Cisco Silicon One Q200L
Cisco Silicon One’s Lead Continues Growing
Today we expand the Cisco Silicon One portfolio with our latest addition, Cisco Silicon One P100 -- a 19.2 Tbps routing device enabling the highest bandwidth fixed systems and modular line cards. We also expanded the G100 to enable the highest bandwidth, fully scheduled fabric element.
